    I came home today and found that my sister for some reason had caught this... as you can see its got legs and looks slightly like a brown snake. It has four legs...
    Stress less though as ill be releasing it shortly.

    They're very common out that way, you often find them in the loose soil under bits of wood, rocks etc.
