Dan put the rainy morning to great use: making a custom snake catch box. After dealing with our last, and biggest, snake, Dan decided that the lidded orange bucket we have been using for confining and transportation of the snakes should be replaced by something more robust, safer for us, and easier on the snake.
Behold the solution. It has a hinged lid that can be closed with a hasp, an easy release door that can be opened remotely with the snake hook, and carrying handles. This box will not be tipping over during the ride in the truck.
Now, will we see any more snakes this year?
