How well do snakes climb?

Postby Bushviper » Fri Nov 23, 2012 11:28 am

Yesterday I got a callout for what I assumed was a small brown house snake. I searched the floor, the cupboards, under the bed and behind the tv stand. Nothing. The bed was a bunk bed made out of steel pipes and was high enough I would not have thought the snake could get onto the bed.

I left and after a few minutes they called again, the snake was on the bed. I thought it could have climbed up a school suitcase or something that had been removed that morning so I went back.

When I got there the showed me the snake cuddled under a teddy bear ON THE TOP BUNK! Now how that got there I have absolutely no idea.

This reminded me of two photographs I took a while ago of a temple viper climbing up a curtain and was right at the top by the curtain rail when I saw it.


It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
