Should have put a post up two weeks ago when this Tiger Snake was spotted curled up in our orchard near the grape vine. After taking the photo, snake realised it was time to head for shelter and our garden shed. It became easy then to estimate its length at about 1.1 m. A snake encounter on KI is safe providing the snake is treated with respect and you don't get too close. Its a good idea to always make noise when walking, watch where you put your feet and wear stout shoes and trousers (jeans are often referred to as "snake proofs"). Alongside the snake is 1 inch black poly pipe.
