Looks a little stirred !

edit - but on reading again, I'd also be a little stirred if just "released" out of a bag onto the ground smile

Tripping along today around a windy dirt back road, came over a hill and saw the most stunning snake. Think he was probably a brown or a taipan. Neither one that is on my "I should stop and get close enough to take pics" list. He certainly wasn't happy about the car and flared up. Bout 4-5 foot long and the most beautiful shining copper gold colour. Certainly looked healthy.

I was quite glad he was far enough off the centre of the road that I could avoid him.

This week I found a carpet had upset a roo. It stole her baby and ate it.

Was interesting to see him stretch it out straight so he could eat it first.




Sizing him up.

That's unlucky CF.
I had a baby brown snake enter the bottle shop yesterday, he was probably about 70cm long. It absolutely scared the crap out of me as I walked around the corner with a trolley full of beer!!

Unlucky indeed. Once is unlucky, but twice in a few days is ridiculous.

Yep , he is unlucky alright. Me and the old man once saw a goanna struggling to climb up a tree , we watched as it writhed around fell to ground and coughed up a 4ft eastern. Brown snake. Could barely believe it at the time.

The carpet snake population is being aggravating. They, no matter how well I fence the chookies in, are determined to try to eat them.

Last week we had one that was the same size as the joey killer. It could have been the same one. Tonight it is one smaller but still about 6 or 7 foot.

Of course they are safe. We don't kill them. I would rather they don't come visiting though.

Make that 2 carpets tonight. This one is only a couple of feet, just a baby. One thing I don't like about summer. Although I prefer to find carpets around the place to browns.

Reminds me of when I got bitten by a Stimson's python when I was showing someone how to handle a snake.

Picked it up and it twisted itself onto my arm then aggressively sunk its fangs into my hand behind my thumb.
Ouch ..Forefinger and thumb unable to use for a few days.

Nether less to say that was the end of the demo... wink

I've been bitten by a couple in my time and interestingly the Collared Whip Snake hurt a lot more than the more lethal Tiger snake and resulted in quite severe bruising.
