It might be winter but that doesn’t mean there are snakes out and about around Sippy Downs.

We just came across a post from local Beck Hart on the Sippy Downs Community – Connect Facebook group showing a photo of what appears to be a red belly black snake in a property on the corner of university way and Fitzgerald Street here in Sippy Downs.

After photographing the snake and exploring potential solutions the snake had left this location and as yet has not bee caught. If you leave in the vicinity of this location please be aware that this snake is on the move.

Here in Sippy Downs living on the very edge over National Park always pays to consider that there may be wildlife on your property, potentially wildlife that can do you harm.

Please don’t ever be complacent and always check places like your pets kennels and children’s play areas vigilantly.
