Default Re: Snakes!

I'm happy to inform that the snake catcher came and took away the snake. It took only few minutes to catch it.
As per him the age is about 1 year and he says there could be other siblings roaming around. My neighbour saw one yesterday and we thought that this is the same one. I'll have to be careful, usually I don't take lights when taking the car/bike in the evening (sometimes its pitch dark). Need to warn my kid too.

Great photo, beautiful snake!

Let an expert take care of it.

Crossposted! Glad to know that you did. The only time we had a snake catcher here, here put the snake in a cotton bag, for release in forest near where he lived... on the bus.

You never know what you might be sitting next to!

Never thought would be posting on this thread.
Spotted this Python on our trail in Tungareshwar. It had eaten something so it wasn't moving.
It must have been 10ft long.

How long was it ? Not able to gauge from the photo. Around 4 feet ?

Slithering out after seeing me (or to say hearing me/sensing me)
