Spring

So Spring is almost here and there has already been some snake activity with a lot of reports from across South Africa of snakes being seen and caught / removed.

We removed our first catch of the season as well. We found two Snouted Cobras in a manhole. Luckily no one was injured, including the snakes and the snakes have been safely relocated.
