I used a dustbin to get it out, that quills are scary, but nice to be so close up, when it erect the quills it's almost like a inflatible balloon with the quills above :)

Fortunately there was no water in the swimming pool, otherwise the poor creature could have drowned! :D

Thanks for saving him AG! :thumbs_up:

On sunday afternoon I was sitting at home while a snake slithered in front of my home, 5m away from the door,and 10min later another one,larger then the first one and definately looking for her, as it follows the exact trail of the first one. :big_eyes:
