Meanwhile...back in Australia

Very general discussion about absolutely anything at all, go wildly off topic and chuck stuff about. Chit-chat. Witty banter. Crash air-planes. Bring your own "lemonade"

Meanwhile...back in Australia

Haven't seen a good "snake and people" story for a while. Wonder how Biggles would have handled this scenario?

1.5 meters? Gack.

This was sent to me by a friend in San Diego:

Despite being on the other side of the continent, I've had a good look around the bathroom today every time I've gone in! I haven't got a snake phobia, per se, but I really don't want to share the bathroom with one either.

No way would I want to be sharing any part of my house with one - I do have snake phobia!! We've had several close encounters with both venomous and non-venomous over the years, and I'm still terrified of them. Biggest we've ever encountered up close and personal was a harmless python in Cooloola NP - as thick as MrRSG's arm and probably about 15-20feet long.

As I teenager I walked & trekked in long grass & thick bush nearby in summer holidays frequently [in hindsight a bit risky] & only once came across some snakes, but I often wonder now [with the wisdom of old-er age, lol] how close I was to other snakes I may not necessarily have seen :? , although I was always told by my grandfather [right or wrong] that the majority are more scared of humans than vice versa...thank goodness I never found out about the 'minority'. :D

Wow, that 'frilled' shark [looks like something from Jurassic Park, lol] is certainly a scary looking critter...thank goodness I normally don't swim at 700 metres down. ;)

Those are really cool. And scary. :shock: I don't think we have anything venomous near where I live, but we do have a coyote problem. :lol:

Frilled shark is such a pretty name. I was hoping for something quite cute. No. Frilled sharks are not attractive in any way. Interesting to see, though.

Both of these were taken by a motion-sensor camera in my backyard. We've also got a weird-looking animal called a Fisher or Fisher-Cat that I've seen twice from my kitchen window ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_(animal) ) that looks like a giant ferret. They have been known to attack house pets and children, so we keep a wary eye out when we're playing outside with our two-year-old.

Never heard of them Fisher things, they look quite tough. Great photos.

Do you live fairly rural then (lots of wild animals)?
How big are coyotes, KK (I presume that is what's in the first picture)?
We get a few foxes round here (how do they compare in size to coyotes?), and a giant big black cat that's not scared of anything (he hisses at you, and deposits dirties on our front lawn, which our dopey dog eats :roll: :sick: ) but that's about it.

We live fairly close to a major city, but our street runs smack between two large parcels of state-owned conservation forests. We get all sorts of woodland creatures. Some of them appear to like my son's toys. We've found raccoon prints on his slide and something bit a big hole in his soccer ball.

The coyotes are about fox size.

I haven't seen them, but we smell them periodically. :)
And the chipmunks are legion and think they own the place. They even sunbathe on our deck.

Oh, the squirrels are legion too. It's kind of varies year to year on which is the dominate species.

One afternoon two summers ago, we were sitting out on our deck and a rustle in the woods caught our attention. A hawk swooped low overhead with a squirming chipmunk in its talons. Then the chipmunk wriggled free and dropped onto our roof, where it rolled and bounced down to the gutter, over the gutter, and fell about 8 feet to the deck. It lay there for a moment and we thought surely it must be dead. Then it hopped up, gave itself a good shake, and ran away. Lucky little blighter.

Wow, I'll bet that was a sight to behold! You seem to have it all, in the States. They can be quite tough :P I saw one skipping along at a real fast pace along a long fence (the narrow wooden ones), I was mesmerised by it, it was great to watch! going like a rocket ...then it fell down... but was up again lol.

We had a bird of prey swoop down on a pigeon some time ago too; amazing to see nature live in action :D

We had wobblies here too, after the Great Storm in 1987. Fences blew down and wobblies escaped from private collections. Survived quite a long time, but I think have all died out now - foxes eat the joeys, so I'm told by a friend who has captive wobblies.

I suspect several people signed the pledge after seeing one in the headlights, though :lol:
