Somewhere between Wivenhoe dam and Somerset dam we came across a little scene happening on the road. There were a few cars here and there and we thought there may have been a small accident but driving past
There in the middle of the road was a
My darling wildlife boy couldnt possibly just put the snake into the bush beside the road we had to drive yes DRIVE with the 1 METRE PYTHON to a far away road where he would be out of danger and not be near the busy main road where he could risk getting run over again. I am very supportive of Robs love of wildlife and I love that he cares so much about the animals and doesn't want them to be hurt - BUT THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS GETTING IN THAT DAM CAR WITH THAT SNAKE AROUND HIS ARM!!!!
Ok so I sucked it up and got in the car - what else was I going to do - I just kept telling myself it was worth it for the pictures haha - We drove a few k's and turned down a few roads until Rob was satisfied that it was further enough away from the main road that the snake couldn't get into anymore trouble...plus the snake was starting to cut the circulation off in his arm so he knew he couldn't go much further without getting into trouble himself.
By the time we got out and took a few photos Robs hand was turning blue so he walked off road a bit and released him back into the safe arms of the bush.
I love my husband. He sees the beauty in everything and truly believes that every person and animal is special and has a place in this world - even huge scary snakes. The majority of people today would have driven past the angry snake in the middle of the road or even worse - ran over it - but not my Rob. He takes the risk and the chance to help an innocent creature and does everything in his power to ensure it is safe and out of harms way. He is pretty special - My Wildlife Hero x
