First Rescue BHS

Postby @ndy » Fri Dec 30, 2011 9:38 am

Hi All

Thought id post a photo of my first rescued Brown house snake, when I found him he looked a bit dehydrated as if his/her skin was a bit loose, so I decided to put him in a tub with some water and gave him a small pinky, he/she did not hesitate to take the pinky as soon as it was in he/she ate it.

Looks a lot better this morning.

Very nice, just try and release it as close as possible to where it was rescued.
If it was close to houses move it as far away as possible.

Nice going @ndy! Like the faint circlular pattern on this one! Haven't seen that on a BHS before. Take some snaps on release !
