Black rat snakes are great climbers and this photo proves it! He's about 15 feet up and headed towards his favorite rotting branch.

But you have the big baddies. Our venomous snakes look like amateurs in comparison to Australian ones!

Oh, they're all over the place here - probably the most common snake we have. I love them - they're big and cranky and they will solve your rodent problems. And they do get big - the record is 7 feet or so! The largest I've seen at my place is about 6 feet.
