    Yikes! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a snake unless at the zoo. Oh – and that one time my friend brought her python to work to show her off.

    Are the brown snakes venomous?

    Deadly Lotta , but very timid! It was probably more scared than us.

    In Australia most snakes are venomous and it is safest to assume they all are and leave them alone.

    Pythons are okay , but will give you a nasty bite that can get infected.

    In summer you always make a lot of noise and wear boots outside, but I was checking before I went to the clothes line!

    As a transplant to Australia, I feel comfortable using my favourite Australian analogy:

    Australia is a lot like Wonkaland. Everything about it is fun, wonderful and a little bit quirky. Take a wrong step, and it’s a little bit deadly too.

    Snakes, spiders, cliffedges. Everything about this country can kill you.

    I remember my Steve Irwin shows – listing the ten deadliest whatever-animals (snakes, spiders, bunnies what have you 😉 ) in the world and they all lived in Australia.

    We have adders (non-venomous) and vipers (venomous) in Sweden (usually very tiny specimens) and I remember that trick too – make as much noise as possible and they will leave before you see them.

    Although once my dad stepped on a viper. Luckily he stepped near its head and he was wearing his wellies so he never got bit.

    When I lived in Georgia we had some very dangerous snakes but in Colorado we mostly just have mountain lions and they don’t come near where we live. These days I just have to be on the look out for renegade squirrels! Oh – and mozzies.

    Mountain lions, okay I am impressed! We don’t have anything on our farm that could actually eat us!

    ( well there was that old sow……)
