    This is my adult female Tasmanian tiger. She had a few health issues when I first purchased her, but with some nursing and treatment here and there she's finally come good. She sloughed over the weekend and her weight is up after a bit of winter fasting. Also she's gone from a flighty piece of work to a well balanced animal that handles well enough to be given some "yard time" :D (as opposed to my adult red belly who wants to fly under the neighbors fence and terrorize their kids :lol:)

    This thread is making my mouth water! Some stunning snakes on here.

    I really want to get RBBS or a Tiger Snake.

    Not commonly bred in Europe though, the RBBS are around $6100 a pair. Might have to rob a bank!!

  7. A few ordinary pics of an EB from a relocation. Ordinary pics, but not an ordinary snake IMO.

    Crappy photo as all I had was an old phone but this little chap came visiting last night. Nothing gets the blood pumping quite like having a beer, talking rubbish and a death adder appearing two feet away. Needless to say we let him be where he made his own way to the front yard where he will only endanger the neighbors chickens...

    This young copperhead was delivered to my place after a Hastings couple caught just before their toddler picked it up.
    Instead of killing it they wrangled into a container and were actually very worried about its welfare.
    Wish more people thought like these guys

    How often do people come into contact with venomous snakes in Aus? Is it more common in certain locations?

    I guess as a parent in Australia you have to keep a n even closer eye on young children than usual.

    As a parent, you have to watch your kids at the best of times but when around long grass and scrub in the Summer, you would be negligent to let a child under 6 out of your sight.
    Kids can be taught what to do when they see a snake and this education is as important as making sure your kid has shoes and long pants when in snake friendly areas.
    Where i live, copperheads and tigersnakes are commonly found in long grass and near water and a bite from one of these guys can potentially be tragic.
    Fortunatly, kids have good eyes and reflexes and are usually able to avoid snakes if they see them first.
    I was one of those weird kids that would always catch them,take them home and put them in a tank in my bedroom.

    By weird I assume you mean normal (non snake keepers are weird!!).

    Would've loved to have grown up in a reptile rich country like Australia. Never seen anything in England, unless we are purposely looking for adders. They very rarely come into contact with people.

    Couple of tigers from last season around 20months of age. Their 1st taste of the pit. Done a couple of laps around the pit & then hid for the rest of the day. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
