– newly stacked old flower pots at the back of the house.

In the course of moving things around yesterday a pair of large Kraits were spotted around the compost bins. I have my doubts as none were found later and everything was moved about. Kraits have a reputation for seeking shelter indoors in the rains. Their bite gives rise to 100% Mortality, when left untreated. They bite and hold on, tiny fangs pumping a surprising amount of venom for a smaller snake. Their neurotoxin causes no immediate discomfort and is often dismissed until full paralysis sets in. They have been known to bite people in their sleep, who then never wake up.
