To the rescue!

We were walking along the lookout path when we met a couple coming the other way. They mentioned a snake just off the path, so of course we investigated.

We soon spotted the Diamond Python resting in the open.

It seemed injured, so Erin emptied her handbag and Nick manoeuvred the snake inside.
Contact was made with the local WIRES reptile person and we arranged to meet her later in the evening when we were back at our accommodation. She was appreciative of our assistance and quite pleased to have a snake guest for rehabilitation.

Until that handover, the snake remained safely encased in Erin's bag and tucked under her jumper for warmth!

(Keegan remained happily oblivious to the hitch-hiker)!
