Dugite Vs Bobtail
« on: November 15, 2012, 10:34:20 PM »
OK after a week of posting board messages here's something herp related - someone was trying to tell me today that if you have bobtails around you won't have any snakes and it reminded me of a call out I did a few years ago. The first pic came courtesy of Glenn Ross (if I recall) - I think the pic was taken by the owners and some how ended up on the Rocky Reptile board. The second pic was the same snake with a quite sizable belly "sprinting" away after being released. Was a 38C day and a barely had enough time to drop the hoop and take a pic on the phone.

For Niall's amusement that was the first and only time I tried to use the black snake tube with the bag on the end.

Dangerous - be OK indoors (I think) but outdoors on a hot day - too many opportunities to get bitten. The wild ones aren't trained like the shop ones  :P

It was a bit more refined than that but conceptually the same
