Excitement...a snake in the library!

"Well, never a dull moment! ... and some people say that libraries are boring.

See this photograph of snake that Nic had bravely caught from under the table watched by 20 staff and students (all giving advice about what to do, how to hold it, what type it was, whether it was poisonous - consensus was a yellow version of the Green tree snake). Peter rang security who came along looking amused (if a little nervous) and joined in the rescue effort.
One student lent Nic his jacket to catch the snake with. Nic then gave it to Rod outside and they let it go in the bush on the far side of campus."
