|The dreaded Brown Snake|
|This guy caught a bunch|
They have set up traps all over the place to catch them. They catch and kill as many as they can to protect the birds and children. I did see a few birds, but I must admit it's weird to wake up in the morning and not hear any birds singing.
They must be making progress, because we did saw several birds and have not seen a brown snake yet. We only met 1 person who had seen a brown snake and that was years ago. They have specially trained dogs that go through all ship cargo and places to make sure the snakes are not sneaking on and trying to hitch a ride. They have no predators here so all they do is eat and reproduce.
The traps are small wire cages with a live mouse in them. They have food and water for the mouse and he is just walking around in the cage like its a normal life. The warning sign on the top keeps him dry and in Guam he doesn't have to worry about the cold. I felt kinda sorry for the mouse.
|Here is the trap|
|This is the mouse inside|
Don't worry they can't live in the cold so if one gets in our bag it will not survive our Missouri winter.
