As most of you know our village is surrounded by forest.
Mostly they are carpet pythons, which are not venomous but we do have venomous ones too like the Red Bellied Black and the Eastern Brown as well as others. So I am wary of any snake until I know what it is.
A few mornings ago we were eating breakfast and looking out our window to the gardens opposite when I heard water running.
I went outside to check what it was. It came from my neighbours garden and I went to her door and asked what it was. She had turned on the underground watering system in our adjoining gardens and the pump has become noisy. While I was there I looked across to our unit and saw a snake hanging a coil off our roof. It looked black so I was wary. The gardener was in the street and he came to check it out. He wasn't sure either because it was up so high. and against the bright morning light.
Damien the gardener got his pool net and encouraged the snake to get in and he pulled it from the roof.
