Snake slips by

SCARY ENCOUNTER: Trinity and Holly Denniss-Walker point to where the snake was spotted just days before it came into the house.
SCARY ENCOUNTER: Trinity and Holly Denniss-Walker point to where the snake was spotted just days before it came into the house.

JILL Walker has a pretty good sense of humour.

"Just watch where you put your feet as you walk out," she jokes.

It is good she can laugh about the situation especially after last week she got a fright when what she believes was a taipan snake got a bit too close for comfort.

"I came home from work and mowed down the front. It was really hot so I came inside to cool off and I turned the telly on and I heard this weird noise," she said.

It was then Jill realised she had an unwelcome visitor in her Meissner Rd home.

"It was actually inside the back door," she said.

"So I rang Viv (Jill's partner) and said 'what do I do? What do I do?"

She said the snake went into one of the rooms and she closed the door to keep it in there. She called the snake man but he couldn't find the snake.

"When they were here I saw it outside again. So in the couple of minutes that I didn't close the door and I was calling Viv it must have just turned around and just gone back outside."

Ms Walker said she hoped others could learn from her experience and be aware of snakes near homes.

She said she was used to snakes on the property but not in the house. In the five years her family had lived there she has seen about six snakes near the home.
