My youngest would like the world to know that she is in fact a mighty slayer of snakes. I am issuing a public apology for insulting her hunting skills.

I don't have a problem with snakes as long as they mind their own business. Same with spiders. Had an Australian friend complain a while back about having a bad night because a huntsman spider kept galloping across her bed. I realize they are harmless, but I do have a problem with horse-sized spiders that don't mind their own business.

Haha 😂. Well there are zero horse sized huntsmen down under lol 😂

The size of a small hand definitely 😉 but they usually prefer to keep to themselves just like snakes do.

Cags theres no need to fear snakes .. we are a nation of 25.3 million people and a miniscule percentage ever encounter snakes.

I do cuz I live in rural NSW and StevieG has cuz Tassie is like a rural state lol 😂 Theyve got all sorts of amazing wildlife in Tassie that we dont have here .. prolly cos a pristine environment down there.

But I will be very happy to keep you and your fam safe. I will shortly be a registered snake catcher in NSW. 😉😎 so I got your back dude 😉

We dont have many spiders here around the house ... had more huntsmen in Canberra than we do out here. We might see one in summer, if were lucky 😉

We have an alpine roof, raked ceiling and no roof cavity to speak of ... so no real space for spideys

Tis beautiful down under ... Id be happy to show you all around ... and will keep you safe .. every last one of yer 😎

Trust me, not a doctor 😉

Plus out of the 100 species of venomous snakes only a handful are capable of delivering a bite capable of actually killing you .. perspective, right? 😉

Yeah, anything with a legspan of over an inch or so qualifies as ginormous here. I'm allergic to spider bites even if the spidey isn't venomous, though fortunately we don't have many venomous spiders here.

Did work one place that was in the middle of the woods and had black widows that liked to hang out by the floorboards. Never had a problem with one, but if I dropped a pen under my desk I'd start to reach for it then freeze and think nope, that's the spider's pen now.

Hysterical

LOL 😂 Right? Definitely spideys pen 🖊😉

Im allergic to SOME spider bites and horse fly bites .. well in truth the spider bites I have had my foot and ankle swelled up and my leg another time. So not really noticed a bite if I havent reacted to 🤔

But all that aside I find you cant really live with fear of if and maybes. There are all sorts of things that bite and growl and even spit .. and youd never step outside.

And outside is where I most enjoy being ♥️

Hehe.

I've definitely re-told Sky's story of the time her husband was lying in the middle of the floor and having his cat drop a huntsman drop a spider on his face.
IRL. especially to my kids.

In unrelated news, one of my closest friends is moving, out of state, likely this week, and I've not really been thinking about it.

RE the news that it was Monday a few days ago-
I've not really told you guys, but Mondays are like my default chill-and-relax day, and weekends are my extra-busy-full-of-challenges days, so I feel like I have a "flipped schedule" from much of the world.

My favorite thing Douglas Adams ever wrote. Y'know, as long as we are on the topic of poisonous creatures and Australia.

Hysterical

Ive not read that but very funny
Quote:
So, youre going to Komodo. Well, I dont know why you want to do that, but I suppose you have your reasons. There are fifteen different types of snakes on Komodo, and half of them are poisonous. The only potentially deadly ones are the Russells viper, the bamboo viper, and the Indian cobra.

The Indian cobra is the fifteenth deadliest snake in the world, and all the other fourteen are here in Australia.


And the money quote Laughing 😂😂😂

No, I mean is there any venomous creature youre particularly fond of?
