thats awesome i wish i had snakes in my back yard, but all i have is geese and squirrels. and fish. the only place around here that i see wild snakes is in the road, and theyre usually sans snakes at that point.

The little Eastern Brown Tree was one that rescued off the road. I had to stop a car to prevent him from being run over. I was on my Harley at the time and the only way that I could transport him was in a shoulder bag (army nap sack) 8)

LOL that's gratitude for you.

We get a lot of wildlife on our roads here. I hit a Koala with the footpeg on my Harley once, lucky I didn't come off. It knocked him unconscious though. someone pulled up behind me and called a wildlife ambulance for him.

Yeah, our pets don't show much regard for us when they need to go.
My wife gets angry with me if she finds something that the snakes have left
on the window sill after they have had a morning sun bake.

P.S. You are always welcome to Australia, we would love to see you. It's
great to visit another country. I was in New Zealand early this year, but they have no snakes there.

My first snake I got, decided it was a good idea to defecate on me. Didn't have it in my hands for a minute and it just let loose in my hand.
Talk about lucky, they go once a week or even less and I get to see it up close.

Is Australia as open as it shows in the movies? I know watching crocodile dundee, it looked like you could go for miles without running into anything.
If its anything close to that I would love to take a trip there myself.

Yep! we have huge miles of nothing over here. A trip to Darwin (North) consists of hours and hours of strait open road. You can actually get excited to see a dead Kangaroo or a bend in the road just to see a change in scenery :wink:

There are signs up in the outback warning people that if they continue past that point that they will be too far out of reach and that they need to be properly prepared before they can go any further. :shock: Water, fuel, back-up vehicle, satellite phone, etc.

If you guys want to come over here, then theres plenty to see and do. I wouldn't mind going over there myself sometime.
