Our first snake

Yesterday we had our first snake in our front garden. I didn't actually see it, but the gardener almost stood on it. He told me where it was so I went out armed with my camera but it was really well hidden in a big bush and I couldn't see it. Needless to say I wouldn't let Lauren play out (much to her annoyance) and have requested that the manager of our complex trim the bush back. The gardener said it was only a green tree snake which aren't poisonous but they do bite and it does hurt - alot!
