You know you have been in the wilds too long when…

…sitting at the dining room table enjoying lunch you hear something fall on the ground behind you. Kelsey, on the opposite side of the table and not prepared to rush the mouthful of food she is enjoying, casually states after a few moments “Brett, a snake just fell out the tree – it’s right behind you”.

“ahh… thanks?!” as I enjoyed the last of my sweet chilli chuna.

The snake which landed in our dining room was a northern tree snake – another new record for Crab Island. They are either very clumsy on Crab Island, or this particular guy likes to jump out of trees, as a snake ‘fell’ out of the same tree and nearly landed on Sam Prisk back on our May trip!
