a bit off the topic of venomous snakes but still yard invading vermin.. On the evening of March 8th I heard our dogs barking a tremendous racket about 10PM. They had... something and all three were battling it ferociously.. When we went out to see what it was it turned out to be a huge rat.. It had already bitten two of the dogs on their muzzles which made them even more enraged.. They finally subdued it with me giving it the coup-de-grace with a shovel.. We cleaned out the dog's wounds with hydrogen peroxide.. Their shots are up to date and they've healed up just fine. In checking the internet its either a Bandicoot Rat or perhaps even a small Nutria. We weighed the body the next day; 4 kilos even.. It was sent out to our nephews village where all his neighbor's said they'd never seen anything like it in their lives.. Of course, that didn't stop them from butchering it and having a fry up with beer....

Not actually venomous, but a constrictor, but about a 4 foot long reticulated python in, of all places, the Phen Tesco's car park! Wish I'd remembered the camera in the car. Appeared docile, but reacted quickly when someone poked it. Guess it might have dropped out of a small tree. What great colouring and markings, although you might not agree if one was wrapped around your neck. Reading indicates this can be the longest and one of the heaviest snakes, but this a relative baby. I guess someone in the gathering crowd 'phoned the 'snake man'.
