WATCH: Warning for walkers as dugite eats another snake in Hillarys

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.
