    I lifted up the tarp to see if there was any nice dry wood under there but soon realised there was more than just wood.

    The heart has finally stopped thumping :blink

    No *bleep*, Pete. Though I did notice you calmed down enough to get a camera and take a few shots. :wink:

    The person holding the branch out of camera shot is Michele. She grew up here and is more used to snakes and spiders than I am.

    As far as I know he/she is still under there keeping dry and warm. We did get some wood but left the big logs alone whilst we chain sawed about 15 feet away.

    The pics were taken on Saturday and he was still there on Sunday. It's been wet since, so I suspect he will be staying a while longer.

    The last one wrapped around our bird bath stayed for a week :eek:

    any idea what it is?
    had a dig through my books but couldnt come narrow down the markings :)

    Could be a carpet python, the markings look similar, but im not an expert on Aussie snakes :D

    I believe it's a Carpet Python, they are non venomous and quite common here. It is the forth one I have seen in the wild in the past four years. I did see a Brown Snake slither along and disappear into the bush (forest) the second week we moved in. Now they are really bad news, aggressive and very poisonous :eek:

    So Fergal you are a snake, spider and reptile lover for sure. I was hoping that someone might really appreciate the significance of having such a wonderful creature as our guest. Unfortunately a lot of Australians grab the nearest shovel and bash the hell out of snakes regardless of the species. Mind you they also hit cane toads with golf clubs and encourage their siblings to do likewise :eek:

    Live and let live, that's my motto. Well, unless they are in the house. That is a different matter altogether :twisted:

    Man, I hate snakes (me and Indiana Jones, I guess). My motto is "get a gun and shoot 'em". But if I did that, I'd have to get rid of it and I couldn't even stand the thought of touching a dead snake. :blink
