Not me.
This beautiful fellow.
Can you see him at the bottom of the fence? He was about 1.5 meters long.
Many people think every snake is a bad snake.  I like to give them the benefit of the doubt when it is safe to do so.  I believe this is a harmless green tree snake. I tried to get closer to be sure, but he disappeared in the blink of an eye.  I didn't even see which way he went.
Some people call them yellow-bellied black snakes and think they are poisonous like red-bellied black snakes, but there is no such creature in Australia as a yellow-bellied black snake - just the poor misunderstood tree snake.
I was fortunate enough to be looking out of the kitchen window when I spotted him.
He made my day.
