Just a word of warning even though we dont see many/any they are still out there -
My children have just come home from playing to inform me that 2 of the children they had been playing with had caught a snake and put it in a bag - Sent Andy out to check and sure enough the two children in question had picked up a snake and put it in a bag - a metre long brown, is it poisonous they asked, as Andy reads them the riot act! Luckily it was quite docile as the weather is cold and in my childrens defense they were very scared of it so stayed away!
Do they think they have the potential to be the next Steve Irwin?? The kids in question were Aussies, maybe its just us pommes that go OTT when warning their children about the danger of snakes.
