The everyday of our family farm
Nice animal - but then I dont have him as a neighbour!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
I have always liked snakes but then Ours aren't poisonous well one is but not very.
I keep my distance from these guys.
If it was seen in my youth like that, it would have an instant death sentence. They are now protected, but my instinct to kill snakes is still there. Such a perfect position for a head chop with a spade. Apparently in spite of us humans killing them willy nilly when we saw them, they never became an endangered species. Now in my more mature years, I have struck a moral deal. If I don't harass you, Mr Snake, then please leave me alone.
As I see the trick is it looks really friendly with peaceful colors...
Pretty little chap but best kept at a distance. I have always had a soft spot for snakes on conditions I recognise what they are! Diane
Sigh. I don't do snakes well. In one of our houses a red-bellied black lived under the front steps. For about nine months of the year I only used the back door.I CAN see their elegance of beauty. From a distance.
He looks like a giant earthworm to me...LOL
He is actually the second most venomous land snake in the world, so one to be very wary of. Even as a juvenile his bite is highly venomous and can be fatal.
We just have harmless little garden snakes. I have to watch out for them when I mow the lawn...
The pose is so innocent looking.
I'm not swapping the brown for the black we had the other day.....
Oh boy, you have snakes like this.I am already afraid the idea that I have to face it.
sadly i have 2 under my hay rounds, but the owls are now hanging aroundhay = mice = snake = owls = look where you step !!!!
