    The injury is up close to his neck. he is so lucky to survive! the whipper snipper only just cut a small way through. I reckon another coat of paint and he probably wouldn't be with us today.
    He is doing really well now. I have him booked in for the vet again tomorrow to get the all clear.
     
  2. Reviving a good thread, here's an EB from today!

    Nice looking snake IV, I have noticed,down here, that we have had a lot less call outs, for this time of year, than in previous years.
    During the drought, snakes moved more, and encountered people more often.
    With so much water around, they dont need to travel from house to house in search of it.
    Thats my theory anyway..

    So far..See what happens if/when it warms up.

    Haven't had any good call outs this year yet either, every time I get called out it seems to be a blue tounge, mistaken for a tiger lol On the other hand there seems to be blueys every where this year

    wlc.JPG Exactly Dragon, the end of the drought has signalled a change,
    Copperheads and tigersnakes here have been replaced by small eyeds and whitelips,

    I was talking to a catcher in Alice Springs a few years ago when he was moving upto Darwin. He said that 90% of his calls were to houses with or near a swimming pool and had dogs. Water to attract the snake and a dog to alert the owners.

    Just came upon this Forum and this Thread. I'm a Snake Catcher from Geelong and thought that I would post some of the Elapids that i've caught and relocated. Love the photos that have seen posted so far.

    Here is a nice looking tiger I relocated in Warrandyte awhile back. The landowner wasn't too keen having it in his woodpile. It also happened to be hiding under the last peice of wood I moved in the pile and was overjoyed at being found...finally :lol: :D I released him at a nearby creek where he was away from houses. He still didn't look terribly impressed :)

    Thats a nice looking Tiger, and to think that he was not greatful of his new home away from any harm.
     
  19. One from today; this was reported as an EB and turned out to be the biggest Marsh Snake I've ever encountered:)!!

    Thats a huge marshy IV.:)
    Here is a couple of pics of a smalleyed and a whitelipped being milked for arvu.
    The whitelip bit a guy in Frankston and we identified it for the hospitol.
    Then Ken from arvu rang and asked if they could get some venom from it.
