Oh does that bring back memories!! Ours brought in a garter snake one night while I was making supper. Freaked me out, lol.
:: Re: snakeIt is the White-crowned Snake (Cacophis harriettae),but you must be at the very northern limit of its range. Itis "venomous, but virtually harmless". It is also listed asvulnerable in NSW, so it would probably be good (for thecat's and the snakes safety), if the cat were in at night.
Anon, many thanks for your very useful info onthe snake. The cats are in at tnight, but this one snuck out as the door opened. Within a minute, he had cuagh this!
White Crowned Snake A White-crowned Snake(Cacophis harriettae) devours an Eastern Striped Skink (Ctenotus robustus) in a meal that lasted three hours! The inoffensive and weakly venomous White-crowned snake, virtually harmless to people and pets, grows to about 0.45m. Although quite abundant throughout Brisbane suburbs, it is nocturnal in habit, so is not often seen. The skink grows to about 30cm (head to tail). http://www.sorb.org.au/fauna/wcsnake.htm
