    Listener, good that you were able to get rid of it. As you probably know, the PC brigade has introduced silly laws that you can’t kill a snake unless it presents an immediate danger. I wouldn’t have hesitated to kill any snake that came into my house, however.

    I doubt it was a Dugite, although Dugites are native to your area. A Dugite is a large light brown snake. I have only twice seen them, and both were at least 2 m. They were phenomenally fast. They bolt at the sight of a human, which is probably why there are virtually no recorded deaths, even though they are extremely venomous.

    There are plenty of other types of snake that could have got into your house. I think the small snake I referred to may be officially called a half girdled snake, but I don’t think that is what we called them.
