Reptiles?

<< < (3/3)

I had an iguana at one point, but that's the only reptile I've been in a lot of contact with. I always wanted a ball python as a kid. They're so cute! Snakes are gorgeous--I've never lived in an area with dangerous snakes, so maybe that's why I'm not bothered by them at all? I dunno, I've never understood why people are creeped out by them. They're such beautiful animals.

Am I the only one who thinks baby crocodiles are also adorable? That yipping noise they make to call their mom is so cute (they definitely don't make good pets, though).

I would like a Python but not sure if I could keep 1 in Tasmania ???  But I sure like snake's, not that I have ever had 1, seeing the snakes I like in Tasmania are posionous, plus I got kids.
When bush walking in Australia, you need to keep an eye out for snakes, they turn up anywhere. I even have to keep an eye open for them around my home, I live in a small town with large open areas of paddocks around me, and I am close to the center of the town!
If it's not the snakes, spiders, blue ring octupus, sea snakes, caterpillars, scorpions, centipedes, bees, wasps, ants and the list goes on and on, to look out for, you will need to watch out for kangaroos cause the big bucks will rip your guts out, cassowaries, emus, wombats, quolls and just about every animal in Australia can hurt you!
I have a book called Australia's Dangerous creatures, it has 386 page's listing animals, insects and plant's that can hurt or kill a person, worth a read.
I far as all the spiders and snakes ect. goes, who care's, I'm not scared of any of it. It's just part of life here!
