Brown tree snake

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Brown tree snake image by Helen FlanaganWalking in to your kitchen you would not expect to see a snake curled up on the kitchen shelf, this is exactly what Helen in the far north of NSW encountered recently.

She immediately called WIRES and was advised to leave the windows open so it could vacate the kitchen overnight.

Snakes may venture inside but will rarely stay there for long once disturbed, leaving them an avenue of escape will usually have the required result of the snake leaving as fast as possible once it feels safe to do so.

These snakes are active by night and often found in buildings, tree hollows and caves. They feed mainly on birds and their eggs.
