    Hi All

    Found this little oke in my house this evening, not sure what it is, but have a funny feeling it could be a baby Mole Snake?

    It was about 12cm long and about 3mm thick, didn't appear to have any eyes, nor a did I see its tongue.:whistling:

    SHOULD I BE WORRIED WERE MOMMY SNAKE IS?

    Thanks

    It's a blind snake. Normally found underground, termite mounds ect. (harmless)

    Thats a blind snake, Harmless snake. Its hard to say which one it is exactly, there are so many different species of them in this country.

    Probably already an adult.....let it go they normally feed on ant larvae or reptile eggs....so they virtually impossible to care for.
