The first thing you notice about a Lace Monitor is how reptilian they look. Immensely powerful, they possess all the skills of a crack SAS outfit - camouflage, strength, speed and rat cunning. -Steve Waters.

But it might have been run over/attacked/mowed etc
> They seem to have survived in suburbia for a long time now, I think they're coping OK, let the poor thing go
But you don't have to tell the authorities you have it
> Doesn't matter, I'm not going to risk the consequences of an off-licence animal, you should probably let the poor thing go.
I haven't seen one here before, I thought it might be a pet & couldn't survive in the wild
> Nah it'll be right. I reckon you should let the poor thing go.
That kind of thing.Day after day, day after day, we stuck, ne breath, ne motion. As idle as a painted ship, upon a painted ocean. Water, water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink. Water, water everywhere, ne any drop to drink.
whats a vent?
it's where the poo, among other things
wait, they poo?

**shows friend beardie in tank** friend says "omg how do you hold him?.. is'nt he poisonous he has spikes like that puffer fish"...
''is it poisonous?''
''It's a python''
''yeah but is it poisonous?''
I was positive that it's common knowledge that pythons are not poisonous.
That kind of reminds me of another thing, when people ask what do I feed him and I say I use frozen rats or quails, people seem to always assume I actually feed them to him FROZEN, and I'm always being 'corrected'.
Another thing that kind of dumbfounded me was when someone asked me (when I'd ran out of food for my Monty boo) if perhaps I could feed him some hard boiled eggs...
A third-grader during one of the snake talks I give in Taiwanese elementary schools: "How do those little vipers get those big frogs down the gullet? Do they shove 'em in with their tails?"
That's why I give these talks

Not so much a question as a conversation
Me: I got my first python on the weekend and he bit me!!
Friend: How long were you in hospital for? You could have died!!
Friend: How much anti-venom stuff did you have to have?
Me: What? Python's aren't venomous
Friend: Yes, they are, all snakes are venomous
I then had to explain that pythons are not venomous etcBugger Diamonds, Woma's are a girls best friend!
I get a lot of questions/comments from the students who visit us.
"Don't act scared because it can smell your fear and it'll bite you"
"Snakes chase you"
and the python lying beside a friend of there's 'sizing' them up to eat.
But the best one I got was from a lady at work who wanted to know if they have a brain.
My mother-in-law OFTEN asks if mine are venomous. Every time I tell her they're not and each time she follows that with, "Not at all? Not just a little bit?"
