When I was gathering up my husband's dirty clothes, from the floor NEXT to the laundry basket in the bedroom the other day, I found this dreadful slithering thing under them.
I thought at first it was a strange rubber band.
But then realised and ran to get a knife to kill it.
Instead I ended up with BBq tongs and an empty chook bucket.
It is a highly venomous curl snake or Myall snake.
Only a baby, about 15cm long. still deadly.
Many jokes were made about snakes and undies etc etc.
I am still more worried about the mother who gave birth to it alive!
Pussy cat is perhaps a bit too old at 14 and not many teeth to keep on top of the baby snakes these days. Still I would hate to lose him to a snake bite in the mouth.
He sleeps most of the day. Or watches TV!
Hhhhmn, Might have to look for a more lively fresh puddy tat!
