    My vent for a Friday afternoon.

    People who call businesses and assume that you should know who they are by the sound of their voice, and then try to have patronizing conversations on why you should have recognised their voice in the first place.
    I don't think its just me that doesn't remember the sound of every single persons voice that they might have ever spoke with.

    I went to donate blood and they said to go have lunch first as it would make me feel better. Driving one block up the road (bad weather) and I get pulled over by the cops and get a $298 fine for not wearing my seatbelt... That will teach me.

    I need to learn patience, be guided by the behaviour of my little Elliott, and stop second guessing myself!!
    His click-clack is in the coldest room in the house (because it is dark and quiet), so it gets down to about 5 degrees overnight at the moment (and getting worse).

    The temps at the hot end are 33 on top of the double sheet of kitchen paper, 35 between the sheets (HA, see what I did there?), and 41 directly on the plastic. The cold end is about 19 degrees on the plastic, and about 24 on top of the paper. So he has a thermal gradient, and was happily snuggled up inside his doona all day after eating his second (count 'em, 2) fuzzie in less than a week, but all my brain can see is "too hot down one end, too cold down the other".

    Once he is feeding, and handling, and not freaking out I want to put his click-clack in the new tank I am building the background for, allowing me to heat up the air in there to around 25 or so (saves me heating the whole room, huh?), but since I am about to render the background, I need access to the tank to make sure it all fits, and don't want to be disturbing him.

    Too many ideas, that all want to happen now.

    Patience, grasshopper.......

    Had a bloke with a bredli try and tell me it wasn't a central carpet python, but a "Centrillian python" (or something like that)
    On site the other day.
    I tried to tell him, but his mate (who told him that) has heaps of reptiles, so must know more:rolleyes:
    Even though they are the only pythons i keep, so i think i would know.....

    Called out to a local tourist park. They told me they had a Taipan in the cafeteria. Unfortunately I was too busy at work so passed the call on to another catcher. Got a message from her a little later....the taipan turned out to be a Common Tree Snake and they had already killed it!! Grrrrr If you do the right thing and call someone why kill it before they get there!!

    I feel your pain. I had an encounter with another wanton killer of wildlife this morning. I looked out the window and saw a cat attacking a small skink on my front driveway. When I ran out the door, the cat bolted. Judging by the rustling noise in a garden bed nearby, I assume the skink managed to escape as well. I really hope it wasn't injured because there's probably not much hope for it if it was.

    I checked the council website to see what the rules are about cats. They advise owners to keep the cat indoors at night "so that it cannot get into fights with other cats, get runover, or hunt wildlife". Stupid, half-baked advice. Do they really think that cats won't do any of those things during the day?

    Make it compulsory for cats to be kept indoors or in secure cat runs at all times, I say!

    Recently had a guy try to sell me a month old 'hypo' bredli. It hadnt even coloured up yet so there was no way to tell if it was truly going to be a hypo. On top of that, one of the parents was a classic! Grrr....

    the photos you put up of your coastals are great you have good looking snakes!

    thats rediclious i would have a go at them and make a great deal about that even killing venomous snakes i believe is bad thats how most snakebit deaths occour in australia. and for it to turn out as a tree snake is pure stupidity i have a tree snake myself and yeah they do look brown at times but the underside is usaully yellow or colourful so its not hard to tell its not a taipan!

    yes i hate them, i call then ex-perts meaning once was bigger than a drop

    Up here, to the layman any snake with a yellow belly is a taipan.
