Dugite devours bobtail lizard
Video of a dugite tucking into a big bobtail lizard in the South West is a timely reminder that snakes are becoming more active as the weather warms up.
Shane Guthrie stumbled upon this scene last weekend while heading out to Joeys Nose near Margaret River for lunch with his family.
Guthrie said it was hard to tell how long the snake was but the bobtail was fully-grown.
Margaret River-based volunteer reptile remover Becca Bolton said call-outs to find snakes on property had picked up in the past two weeks.
“So far this season they have been relatively easy ones, just in a garage, in a shed, in people’s gardens,” she said. “I haven’t had any so far in houses.”
