    I wasn't here for this discussion. My 2 cents worth.
    My son loves snakes, befriended a carpet snake out in the paddocks. One day he got down from the tractor, onto his motor bike and accidently ran over and flicked a red belly over his head. He could identify it as he was fascinated watching it go over. Once home he told me about it then said, I think he got me. Sure enough it had, through the elasticized part of his work boots. We spent new year, 2000 in intensive care monitoring him, lol.

    We also had an outside aviary that hubby always promised to build a concrete slab for. Sure enough years later 2 browns moved in to take advantage of the mice who were also there. I did not know this till what I thought was a mouse emerging, and emerging, and emerging. I was bitten on the heel. 1 fang, no invenomation. All our fault.

    I am not a venomous wild snake lover, I am on the preserved list more than they are. You come in my turf then out you go.

    I have always said if you can get close enough to kill it, you can catch it. As far as I know all species are protected, making it illegal to kill them. Deerhound, you want my number? I will gladly come & remove venomous snakes or Pythons no charge

    This is correct. All Australian native animals are protected by law- including venomous snakes.

    My kids when young were more protected than the snakes were. One close to the farm house and it was gone. Too bad, so sad and no second thoughts.

    I also believe in protecting my children, I also understand the vital role these reptiles play in our ecosystem. Your statement seems to be very uneducated, if you are offended by that my apologies, however I find "to bad, so sad" very offensive. You should remember there are other reptile owners here & are we not all "animal lovers"?????

    I am not offended at all and yes, Reptiles in their habitat, with loving owners are not the ones I was referring to but ones that were near my kids when young on the farm. I love dogs too but any killing sheep would be shot. I totally appreciate there are reptile, bird, dog, cat owners out there. I meant no derision of your passion. My comment too bad so sad was for the snake near my kids. Over in the paddock etc it would be fine.

    Thank you for that. I would certainly appreciate your phone number just in case. It was so frustrating the day I made numerous calls and no one was interested as the snake wasn't a python.

    Ahh the time I scared the crap out of mum by bringing home a brown snake it was bigger than me, I thought I could have it as a pet. Mum fainted I dropped the snake to help mum, the dog chased the snake. I was so upset about losing my snake. That was the only time my dad ever smacked me. But it didn't stop me playing with snakes just didn't bring them home any more. Now days I count my lucky stars I never got bitten, and much prefer to watch from a respectful distance.

    If your on an acreage you could get some guinea fowl to keep them at bay but the noise they make is probably worse a problem than what the snakes are.
