That snake HAS to be a rescue or confiscated. I would love to get my hands on the owner that allowed THAT to happen!

This may not be anyone's fault, I think it may actually be a wild snake that someone stumbled upon and handed it in to a wildlife vet. It's unheard of to have a tick problem in suburbia, but we have to be careful when we walk through bushland around here. Even the wildlife falls prey to these evil little things and this poor fella was totally ambushed by them.

No picture Dodobird? You may be able to see it in my photo collection, I have all my pix available for public viewing. It's under "Other snakes".
