A rarity in the Southern Highlands

corn snake

The rain often brings out all kinds of different creatures from their hiding places.

Our local snake catcher Ray McGibbon was called out to collect a Corn Snake at Berrima yesterday.

The exotic species is illegal in Australia and poses a bio - security risk.

Ray says unfortunately it will have to be put down.

Corn Snakes are a non venomous species of rate snake and are popular as pets in the United States.
