    i was behind an exhibit all day and had a chance to communicate with the public. here are my favourite bits:

    the bearded gent who asked if any of the geckos were poisonous, because when he was younger there were dangerous biting geckos in the woodpile.

    the trail bike rider who had seen a 14 foot diamond.

    and the woman i overheard telling her children that the large amphibians they were looking at were canetoads, despite the very clear label stating they were Green Tree Frogs.

    hahaha yer i get things like this all the time.
    because im known as the kid who catches snakes at school every time someone see a snake that think they have to come and tell me.
    i always get my dad killed a brown snake in the backyark on the weekend. and when they discribe the snake it ends up being a yellow faced whipe snake. every single week this happens lol. sounds like a good expo wish i could of been there.

    actually no shellfisch, amusing as those statements were, my highlights were all the parents of enraptured children who asked me about reptile licencing and how to go about buying a pet for their child.

    in the hinterlands, my mate filmed this 15ft diamond crossing the garden, and he's removed 2 from there garage, he knows they won't bite him unless provoked and so he doesn't kill them...much to my liking.

    As I said earlier Jack. In NO way was my comment meant to upset you or anybody. I don't make a habit of upsetting anybody.

    Something appears to have been lost in translation :?

    I am glad that you had an otherwise good day :D
