The main dangerous snakes around my area is the Dugite and Brown Snake mate… these can kill you, but it is rare I would say…. probably others… but in that old swimming spot there might be Tiger Snakes due to the perfect conditions of the native grasses, the freshwater swamps etc… the Tiger Snake will easily kill you…. within an hour or three depending on if you panic, your heart rate (if you are doing vigorous activities such as snorkeling lol)

Many Tiger snakes in Perth, Garden Island, Rockingham and tens of thousands in the Southern Regions of WA where the conditions are perfect, swampland, marshes, long thing native grasses and much more.

Around 1000kms North of my area is two of Australia’s most deadly snakes and that is the Death Adder which is only around 70cm long and then there is the King Brown of which the chances of surviving a bite from both of these snakes is quite rare due to the isolation from civilsation etc… but people have survive from bites this year, a farmer and a small boy and possibly others.

I worked up North for around a year when I got out of the Army in the mid 90’s at Nanuturra Roadhouse on the edges of the beautiful Ashburton River, across the road in a million acre cattle station… the owner told me when he was a young bloke he was droving cattle, and left is swag (bedroll) on the ground, unrolled in, hopped into bed and a big King Brown snake was sleeping inside, and he got bitten a few times…. but survived due to the Royal Flying Doctors ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Flying_Doctor_Service_of_Australia )etc… this Cattle Station is 1000 miles from nowhere.

They have been a few deaths this year in Australia from snake bites.

I think Australia’s most deadliest snake is the Taipan and the Coastal Taipan (prounounced Tyepan) one was discovered in Western Australia… probably introduced via a Truck from interstante or deliberaterly introduced.

Yes my local hospital would carrie Anti Snake Venom… and I am very sure mate that one day I will get bitten by a snake… just as long as my dogs don’t get bitten… last year I dived on my dogs to distract them from a massive dugite snake out the old 100 year old dump…. I was so lucky to save them and myself…scare the shit out of me.

If I do ever get bitten… now that would be a great video… I also have a snake first aid kit in my Landcruiser in case.

The nesting Tree is a The tree known popularly and scientifically as the casuarina has been consistently noticed for the sounds made as wind passes through its unusual foliage of needles and leaf scales. The acoustic experience of the casuarina — with subspecies found throughout Australia — has been represented as ‘haunted’, ‘grieving’ and voicing the secret language of initiates. This essay traces intriguing conceptual and aesthetic representations of the ‘voice’ and its listeners found across both Aboriginal and white Australian cultures in traditional English verse, Aboriginal prose narrative, accounts of cultural practices, and hybrid blends of all three. The essay adopts the notion of ‘listening to listening’ to set out the many forms of story the tree’s sounds generate their contribution to identifying places, and to suggest a specific Aboriginal song-line appears to underlie the divergent replications of tree-‘voice’ across southern Australia.

See video here on the Sound a Casuarina Tree Makes in the Wind… not a bad example but very hard to record…

I’ll try and get a better recording

I am going to try and film the baby Willie Wagtails as they grow each day, feel free to watch the daily episodes!

The willie (or willy) wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys) is a passerine bird native to Australia, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, the Bismarck Archipelago, and Eastern Indonesia. It is a common and familiar bird throughout much of its range, living in most habitats apart from thick forest. Measuring 19–21.5 cm (7 1⁄2–8 1⁄2 in) in length, the willie wagtail is contrastingly coloured with almost entirely black upperparts and white underparts; the male and female have similar plumage. Three subspecies are recognised; Rhipidura leucophrys leucophrys from central and southern Australia, the smaller R. l. picata from northern Australia, and the larger R. l. melaleuca from New Guinea and islands in its vicinity. It is unrelated to the true wagtails of the genus Motacilla; it is a member of the fantail genus Rhipidura and is a part of a “core corvine” group that includes true crows and ravens, drongos and birds of paradise. Within this group, fantails are placed in the family Dicruridae, although some authorities consider them distinct enough to warrant their own small family, Rhipiduridae.
The willie wagtail is insectivorous and spends much time chasing prey in open habitat. Its common name is derived from its habit of wagging its tail horizontally when foraging on the ground. Aggressive and territorial, the willie wagtail will often harass much larger birds such as the laughing kookaburra and wedge-tailed eagle. It has responded well to human alteration of the landscape and is a common sight in urban lawns, parks, and gardens. It was widely featured in Aboriginal folklore around the country as either a bringer of bad news or a stealer of secrets.
