    My chicks have a new small mesh pen and chicken house built within my larger pen tonight to keep them safe from my resident Diamond Python snake ... who was on the move again today after a day of sleeping in the sun on top the water tank outside the pen.

    Is the snake yours? If not I would so call fish and game to come relocate him...could be danger to small children or other pets....

    No not my snake. I live in a forest area on 40 acres and there are lots of snakes. This is a Diamond Phython..poisonous but not deadly. There are Tiger and Red Belly Blacks that are more dangerous around. If this one is around the others are less likely to move in. It has been around for a couple of years.
    My wildlife rescue friend , WIRES animal rescue told me if I remove this one from experience another will move in in its space.
    They are protected here so cannot kill it either.
