Hi Guys,

I’ve been asked by a colleague for more info regarding the above mentioned snake. Apparently his neighbour has one, which escaped the cage and went hiding inside a crack/ hole in the wall. She then asked him to come and try catch the snake as she feared its Supposed 200 razor sharp teeth. He would like to know how to go about in catching this snake and any other info which might help him learn more about this snake.

Thx,
The Will of GOD will never take you, where the Grace of GOD will not protect you

Best way to catch it is let it bite you. That way it comes out the hole a bit and you can try and inch it all the way out while its chewing on your finger. :)
