Cape Town - Experts have warned Capetonians that rats and mice from fire-ravaged areas will head for the suburbs in search of food and snakes will follow them. According to the Sunday Times, reptile rescuer Shaun MacLeod has said that in the event of such fires snakes go underground. But when the fires are out, survivors will come out for food.“The rats and mice that have survived will go to domestic areas and the snakes will follow them,” he said.He said that tortoises meanwhile were less likely to survive and those that do would be burnt badly. Julia Wood from the Baboon Technical Team said the charred remains of four baboons had been found so far. Three in critical condition had been euthanised and seven were still being assessed.News24 reported on Friday that Brett Glasby from Four Paws spoke to volunteers at the Noordhoek farm village on what to do when they came across injured and displaced animals.Glasby told volunteers to be tolerant of the animals they encountered and warned residents it could include snakes.
