Its hardly putting people off moving here lol. Far more important things to consider when migrating than snakes IMHO if you are weighing things up. I posted it as it was a local news story and was unusual. She was laying out of the normal season and had picked out under someones fridge. And as the snake catcher said in the clip, he's never known that in 40 years. So its hardly like it happens all the time.
I've seen a brown snake here. At the time it was a bit of a shock but we remembered our snake rules and it went on its way and we lived to tell the tale. Snakes are common and part and parcel of living here, most people will probably never see one though. My husband grew up here and has never seen one. That I have I count as a bonus in amongst all the other amazing wildlife I've seen. It was a stunning creature to see move and I only wish I'd be able to enjoy the experience more at the time rather than being on alert till it passed us.
Have seen loads of snakes. They are hiding everywhere. They run off when they see you, well not really a run but you know what i mean.
