With drought in Australia, snakes are on the move:
Although snakes don’t need water because they don’t sweat, Mr Neindorf said they rely on food to keep their fluids at a reasonable level, meaning more of them were on the ground in search of a meal.
“Because conditions have been so dry for such a long time, food is scarce compared to previous years, meaning snakes this year are likely to be more active than in previous years in their search for food,” he said.
(Actually, this is a bit of a bait and switch. Headline notwithstanding, the story actually tells people to expect snakes on the move, but doesn’t seem to offer any evidence that it’s actually happening.)
