The Great Oz Eddventure #20 – First Wild Snake Encounter

Working at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve I am very priviliged to encounter a variety of native animals in their natural wild habitat.  One of those animals is the red belly black snake, known for it’s highly venom bite.  Because of this I was fairly apprehensive about seeing one, but I knew, like with most animals, that they are more afraid of you then you are of them.  And that is true, as you can observe, respect and enjoy them from a moderate distance away watching them move away into the bush…
The are a joy to watch as their black is such an amazing vibrant colour, and they can be seen on occassion swiming through the wetlands!
