    Some of these photos are amazing. I hate seeing animals hit on the road. It generally is not to hard to slow down and wait or chase them off. It was only a few days ago that some idiot nearly hit me as I tried to chase a snake off the road. ********s swerved at it and killed it.

    Surely there is a place we can report behavior like this. I love taking my snakes out with us, most people start of with "Only good snake is a dead snake" but after 10 minutes with them they change their tunes.

    this is the first time i have looked at a 14 page thread from start to finish. it is a real shame seeing all those dead reptiles but it happens, thing i noticed about 99% of them is how many times they must have been run over to cause those injuries. People must really hate reptiles to be running over dead snakes.

    this guy jumped out in front of the skyline one night, had no way of avoiding him and its all trees on the left and oncoming traffic to the right. front number plate went flying, being a skyline i needed a new radiator, front bumper ect, poor thing got dragged under the car.
