Sure had my attention as it worked to ground and thankfully away from me along the bottom of a wall towards a tree.
Well over a metre long, quite skinny and a small mouth and head, probably not dangerous.
Quite hard to kill, they move fast and you lose site of them while looking for a machete or bar to get them with.
Interestingly, none of the dogs noticed it and I very much hope it has moved on to live somewhere else.
We are in a relatively urban area so was quite surprised.
Not many animals scare me, but snakes command respect because so many are poisonous here.
