what should you do?

Stay calm. Calm person - calm snake.

Stay away from the snake (this includes kids, significant others and pets). If the snake feels threatened it may attempt to flee or take defensive action. 95% of people who have been bitten have been trying to interact with the snake.

Call us. Try to keep the snake in sight or at least contained to a room, so we have a fighting chance of finding it when we arrive. Snakes are escape artists.
