I've never seen anything like this before and neither had Matt Dunbabin, the owner of the Bangor Vineyard Shed in Dunalley, Tasmania, who shot this now-viral video of a Tasmanian tiger snake slithering along the top of a wire fence.
Dunbabin said there are plenty of snakes in southern Tasmania, but he had never witnessed one climbing a fence, he told The Mercury.
"Certainly not along a strand of wire on the fence, it seemed really bizarre…"
"They're a part of the landscape that is great to see, and it's fascinating to see behaviour that you just don't normally see, it's quite amazing."
This Tasmanian tiger snake certainly has an interesting way of getting around @bangorfarm! #WildOz pic.twitter.com/Y0OPQtuboM
