Last year we had a snake (unidentified) go down a hole at the base of our hand basin which accessed the plumbing under the bath. It must have died under there as a few days later we had a stinky dead snake smell in the house which lasted for about a week. While I was sorry that the snake had died, I was also relieved to know that it wasn't lurking around in our bedroom somewhere.

A couple of years back we had a young spotted bush snake take up residence in our post box. He lived there for months and we had to tap on the post box before we opened the door to removed the post so that he could pop out the post slot first. I was quite relieved that he didn't return the following summer.

Now that is one space that I would hesitate to place my hand. :big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

We have had quite a few visits from Night Adders lately. Beautiful snakes, but fortunately not in my post box.

As a matter of interest, would a Night Adder have the capacity to kill a cat?
