A HILLARYS couple has a warning for coastal walkers after seeing a dugite eat another snake at the weekend.
Vicki and Gil McNaught were walking along the cycle path at Pinnaroo Point about 5.30pm on Saturday when they saw a snake in the nearby grass.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” Gil said.
“A dugite was eating a grass snake.
“The dugite was about 6ft long and the grass snake about 3.5ft, and the snake had half the snake in its mouth.
“Unbelievable; I’ve never seen a snake eat a snake.”
Gil contacted Community News to warn people to be on the lookout for snakes.
“This was just off the path and not far from the kids’ playground,” he said.
