Unquestionably one of the most enjoyable activities is driving. A peaceful journey is made possible by having a full tank of gas, a straight and smooth road, good company, and a beautiful setting.

Most likely, you’ve already considered a quick trip. Anywhere you go, if you don’t drive an electric vehicle, you have to use gasoline to get there. People were horrified to see what was at the gas station’s pump.

On a beautiful summer day, one woman was driving through the downtown streets while running errands. The last place on her list to visit was the gas station. After parking her car and grabbing the hose, she received an unexpected shock.

Where the hose should have been, there was a large snake slithering around. The woman yelled before running away and alerting those around her. Some cautiously approached to view the snake before hastily leaving. Even more unexpectedly, what happened next?

An almost 18-year-old boy came over to look into the situation. For the benefit of the line of people waiting, he loved snakes and was not afraid of them.

He arrived and started to make plans for getting rid of the beast. It was like a “light bulb” moment for him when he realized he could grab the snake’s head with his T-shirt and gently move it away. Many are amazed by the bravery this young man displayed in arming himself. The snake’s size is visible in the video.

Snakes reappear in the warmer months, so make sure you know how to handle them. These are the key points.

After a lengthy winter hibernation, snakes are moving around in search of food and a mate.

Please don’t assume that because snakes can be found anywhere, including on the beach and in the suburbs, you’ll never encounter one.

If you see a snake:

Try to simply ignore it. It is best to avoid approaching snakes because they are timid and won’t bite unless provoked.

Make sure the house is vacant and that no pets are present. After you, shut the door, then dial a reputable snake-catcher on your phone.

Observe a snake’s path if you see one outside. It’s likely that if it heads for a thicket or an open paddock that you won’t see it again.

A snake should never be killed or captured by you. This is the time of day when most bites happen.

Little snakes can cause a lot of harm. Before they even hatch, brown snake eggs are laced with poison.

Stay on the trails while strolling through national parks and reserves, and make some noise.

To prevent snakes from hiding in your yard’s debris and long grass, make sure it is clean.
