Bibra Lake is 5 minutes from me... a few years back I took a picture of a Tiger Snake sunning at Bibra Lake....

Here...One of the most deadliest snakes on the planet.

Along a lake near a nature path, I guarantee there are 10 more for every 1 you see.

You don't get out bush much, do you?

You should do it. It's spiritual.

I thought Australia's most venomous snake was something else.

Not in Southern Ontario where Zetsu and I live. Out West where Mel, Fash and Shen Li live, yes. About the largest wild creatures you will see around here are raccoons and wild turkeys.



Snakes are shy creatures... You rarely see them in cities... They're mainly on the outskirts in the bush. If you saw one on a golf course you should buy a lotto ticket because that would be a lucky meeting.

I am a city boy. I don't know how to react to dangerous wild animals.

I'm not scared of snakes... they shy away from people although that Tiger Snake up there has been known to chase people. But that is only a rumour I've heard.

I already said Tigers snakes are rumoured to chase people. I call bullshit until I see it with my own eyes. .

The inland taipan snake is the most venomous snake in Australia and the world. I looked it up.

I repeated what you said and added an "and browns" addition.... don't be a nag, scrag....

And they occasionally do chase.... whether you experience it or not...

Australia has 9 out of the 10 most deadly snakes on the planet...

And guess what?

No one sees them.

You'll be safe on the Australian continent... trust me on this one.... Now, if you said you would be worried about flies carrying you off, then I'd say.. Sure!

If people live near Crown Land I would imagine they'd show up from time to time.

In my city, occasionally moose, elk, black bears, bobcats, and lynx appear in yards..

About six years ago a 150 lb mountain lion was tranquilized in the city limits..

Not to mention all the urban coyotes..

What I mean is that wild animals have adapted to human encroachment.

I guess hunger in the wild drives them to seek food in the suburbs.

I saw a woman in the USA have a cougar come shelter in her house a few years back. Did you hear that story in your news?

No, but cougar's have a taste for dog flesh..

There have been many cases of domestic dogs being killed and eaten by cougars in small towns in British Columbia.
