    Default Freaking out FREAKING OUT!!!

    OMFG!!!! I just went outside on the front verandah and there was a FREAKING red belly black snake right next to my chair!!!

    My champion cat was sleeping on the next chair and she must have heard it as she looked straight at it when I came out the door then jumped down next to it before I even took a step! It dropped through a crack pretty quick smart which would be great EXCEPT NOW ITS UNDER MY BLARDY HOUSE!!!!

    Ah the joys of living in the bush with a DH who works away ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FREAKING WORLD!!!! Lucky ds is at the folks tonight!

    Can anyone recommend those solar snake repeller things??? Thats the 3rd I've seen this year!!!

    I probably would have died of a heart attack. One of those slithered over my mums foot while she was hanging out washing about a year or so ago, she just froze and stared at her dog willing him not to go for the snake!

    Eeewwwww gives me the heebie-jeebies!!!

    Sorry no advice, just sympathy!

    My brother almost stepped on one getting out of the car on the driveway in the house I am currently living. I'm surprised and thankful I haven't seen one yet or all of ou would have heard the screeching!

    We have red belly black snakes around here too, they are venomous but not agressive and they will warn before they strike by coiling into a striking pose, they are much more likely just to escape like the one you saw did. The other bonus is that they eat other snakes, particularly the much more venomous and agressive brown snakes.

    I know, I know... and I'm quite cool with them 'out there' just not on my front verandah thank you very much! I 'did' have this little smug sense of security that they wouldnt come up here.... thats now blown out of the water!! and right next to my fave have a sit and relax of an evening chair too!
