This happened about a year ago.
Tessa was playing on the verandah.
‘Mum, there’s a snake down there’, she said as she lay on the floorboards, peering through the cracks between the planks.
The snake was eating a live frog (they taste better fresh). The snake had more than half of the frog in its mouth.
Mum (me) in a tizz gets Dad (Andrew).
Andy the Great (aka Super Shirl) comes to the rescue of frog (ps. don’t tell me we shouldn’t do this – we know 🙂 )
Snake scurries off under neighbours car (sorry Henry).

Tessa poured some water over the frog to make him feel better.
The frog took a couple of minutes to get over the shock and proceeded to climb back up to his spot under the verandah.
