Bonogin

Bonogin Red-bellied Black SnakeThis Red-bellied Black Snake was found on a Bonogin property in early September of this year. The snake was spotted near the rear of the property that extends back onto Bonogin Creek. Red-bellied Black Snakes prefer moister, rocky habitats that see an abundance of frog activity – amphibians being their preferred prey. As this species is highly venomous it is recommended that the specimen be reported to and removed by trained, experienced professional snake handlers. Once we received this call our snake catcher responded within 20 minutes with the snake captured almost immediately – thanks to the residents that kept a sharp eye on the snake, making our snake catcher’s job much easier on arrival. The snake was relocated to a neighbouring suburb away from highly urbanized areas.
