Wildlife in Australia
Snakesby David Manning of Animal Ark.
|Snakes are a different matter altogether and some of them, well most of them actually, are venomous. But still my advice is DON'T PANIC.|
You are very unlikely to see one if you live in a city anyway and most are nocturnal and none will bite if you don't tread on them or try to hurt/scare them.
A dugite: adults to 1.2m long, sometimes longer
A Tiger Snake: adults to 1.2m long
|At our animal roadshows we advise children and adults to "say G'day and walk away".|
Despite the huge numbers of venomous snakes in Australia only about 1 person a year dies from a bite.
