Here is a link to a picture of what was left after my landlord took it out in my place - they usually don't kill them, but I guess the smaller ones are just too quick for the non snake catchers.

Another snake in my house on boxing day! Only half the size of the other one. (see pic link below)A Copperhead Racer got in, has the same venom as a cobra but no fangs to inject it, if bitten you get swollen and red around the bite.

Funny how this happened - the next door neighbor started burning, again, so I started shutting windows on that side and the back door. When I went to close the back door it got hard to close so I looked at the door jam and there he was - just pure luck I got him. He was alive when I took him out as I did not want blood all over the place this time, but not much of a mover due to the crushed spine.

I decided to re-stuff the bottom of the door and tried opening the security, iron, door and it fell on the ground, lol, hinges rusted right through. So, now the door has been taken away to rebuild it and I have tape across the wooden door till I get everything squared away.

Snakes in the house really mess up your whole safe place thing.

Agh. Snakes. I jump out of my skin and can't sleep if I think I hear a mouse. (And I have cats, who swiftly eat the occasional mouse that attempts refuge here. And I've even owned and loved rats before. I don't know why the thought of a tiny field mouse sneaking in bed with me wigs me out.) I love snakes, as do my reptile-loving kiddos, but I can't imagine dealing with your situation well Shocked. There are parts here in the States that scorpions are a bit of a nuisance, and I'm not crazy about that idea either.

Haha, have my security door back - nicely repainted and with new hinges. 

As the bubble wrap stuffed under the door did not work out so well, and as I never open it, I have duct taped around its edges.  Now, I can leave the back door open for the ventilation without worry, I hope.
