Wild animals are a lot harder to save.....they fear humans.


They're often more docile if dehydrated and injured.

Depends on the animal. A coyote will chew it's leg off rather than be handled by people. You do not have any pesky coyotes though.

Snakes are the worry. if they're hurt and it's hot. Look out!

That's the best way. :smiley_thumbs_up_yellow_ani:

And don't keep your fishing nets close to where you're sitting if your remote fishing. They literally crawl over your feet for the smell of old fish.

We have poisonous snakes in the most Southern part of the province, but they could only make an adult a little sick..

I'm glad we don't have the kind Australia has.

Even the thin little juvenile ones have enough poison to kill you here. You have to be ready mentally for one to crawl across your feet or campsite, and get back to what you were doing. They generally avoid you though. But on a really hot day it pays to fill beer cans with a little bit of long life milk and throw those cans as far away from your lounging area as possible... (they can get their heads in but not out)

That right there moves Australia off of my bucket list. I often thought I'd like to take a golf and beach trip to Australia. Maybe drop in and share some single malt scotch with Bricktop. But, being on guard for snakes? I will pass.

The coastal regions are fine. Bricktop lives in a snake free or virtually snake free zone. I'm talking about the middle of nowhere zone where you put an AM radio on the ground not because you want to listen to it, but you want to aggravate critters to go around you. Especially if you're night fishing. The rats and bats don't like it either, so a plussie!

Are Australia's snakes mostly in desert areas?

So bears and mountain big cats are attractions we won't run into in North America?

Australia is the safest continent on the planet. I've seen two snakes in the wild in my whole life and I've lived over half a century.

Remote regions. They hate vibrations. So well traveled roads or population centres they flee from. You'd be lucky to see a snake in the coastal regions anywhere. They are more disturbed by us than we are with them.

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.

You don't rough it in Australia very often?

Last trip I had a Kingie slide across my foot on the way to an eskie.

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.

Where we go camping in the summer in SE BC you have to be aware of cougars, black bears, grizzlies, aggressive bull moose and even coyotes and lynx if you bring your dog or cat with you....such an easy meal for both of them.

I think maybe TV shows about Australia may have put some off especially about snakes but I think the programs are just taking the Micky out of viewers. You never see snakes and we certainly have no man eating animals except in Zoos.

Depends on how bush you go.

If you drive 2 hours away from any humans, expect to get confronted at least once on your camping trip. If you go to a caravan park, expect to to be confronted by feral humans (animals).

If you drive 2 hours away from any humans, expect to get confronted at least once on your camping trip. If you go to a caravan park, expect to to be confronted by feral humans (animals).


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.
