Happy World Snake Day 😍! 🐍💚🐍💚🐍

As wildlife rescuers we hear complaints about all sorts of wild animal:
“They make too much noise”
“They nibble my roses”
“They eat my fruit-trees and leave a mess”
“They chew up my balcony railings”...

Well snakes do none of these things. They are quiet, they don’t eat up garden flowers or fruit from trees or chew balcony railings; they perform free pest extermination; they eat their meal whole, leaving no mess and to the best of their abilities they avoid interactions with humans.

Never approach or handle any snake. If one has entered your home or you have found one that is injured, please contact your local wildlife group for advice or assistance.
