Hissing Sid Comes to Call
Guess who I found in my garden this morning …
I believe it’s a Whip Snake, but I’m not sure which exact species. They live in trees and bushes and eat lizards and frogs. Whip Snakes are mildly venomous, with their fangs at the back of the mouth. Basically they chew on their prey to release the venom, which takes about 15 minutes to work. The venom allegedly isn’t fatal to humans, but I’m not proposing to test whether that’s true or not.
