According to the snake catcher Sean Cade, the search for an angry constrictor in western Sydney is almost complete.

Since a Boa skin was found at the Cascades Estate in Silverdale in early October, the 2.5 m constrictor, reportedly thicker than a male calf, could have covered more than five kilometers.

But Mr Cade said on Friday that his active search, in collaboration with the Department of Primary Industries, was officially completed last week.

& # 39; Regarding physical search – that doesn't happen, & # 39; he said to AAP.

& # 39; Just the amount of land it can cover … made it harder and harder to refine that search for a particular area.

& # 39; I think it's in the bush somewhere, but how long it can survive, or if it's going to survive, is hard to say. & # 39;

BOA CONSTRICTORS

  • Is considered to be one of & # 39; the world's largest snakes
  • Non-toxic and has an arrow-shaped head
  • Varies widely with tan, green, red and yellow color combinations
  • Distinctive patterns on the body, of jagged lines, ovals, diamonds and circles
  • Achieve sexual maturity around the age of 3 to 4 years and can reach the age of 30

Mr. Cade says the snake has found its way to the basin of the Warragamba Dam, about 5.7 km from the Cascades Estate.

& # 39; If it enters the Warragamba Dam, then that is a very remote, remote and safe area for it & # 39 ;, he said.

The experienced snake catcher also said he was convinced that the Boa could survive in NSW bushland if it met favorable weather conditions and found food sources.

& # 39; It's probably just cruising around doing his thing, & # 39; said Mr. Cade.

& # 39; As long as it doesn't hurt anyone or their pets, it doesn't make any sense.

& # 39; We don't know how healthy it is, what area it is in, what other predators there are … so we can't really predict what happened to it. & # 39;
