Sometimes snakes find themselves in backyards in the warmer months of spring while searching for food or a mate.
Most snake bites occur when people accidently step on them or try to kill them. If you see a snake in your backyard make sure pets and children aren't in any danger and telephone the WILDCARE Hotline on 9474 9055.
