Ashmore

Ashmore Red-bellied Black SnakeThis Red-bellied Black Snake was found having a snack on a Green Tree Frog. The snake was noticed by the tenants of a property in Ashmore that had a nice and moist backyard with a central pond feature. This rocky pond is known to have high frog activity which in turn may attract snake species – particularly Red-bellied Black Snakes. The snake was unimpressed that it was being disturbed during its snack time and presented our snake catcher with a typical threat posture when captured. The snake was successfully relocated in refugia suitable to this species in an area that sees low human activity within 40 minutes of the call being dipatched.
