taking care

snakes so fragile

watch your step

Our local council has been putting up these signs at points along our coastal walking paths. Across summer Tiger Snakes have been spotted at a number of locations. This natural element certainly adds to the excitement of a stroll along the bushy pathways that wend their way for kilometres along our local coastline. We do get many international tourists who come to the bay for the sights and may think snakes such as this cute little Tiger snake are another tourist attraction to look for.

    1. Our local government put them up for tourists, this is a recent initiative, there have always been snakes but only signs this year. my wife and i were chased by a Tiger snake on this part of coast path 30 years ago.

    1. Snakes are part of life here in Australia Janice. Very few people however die from snakebite here even though we have most of the world’s top 10 dangerous snakes. Crocodiles and sharks take a lot more people.

      1. Well that’s good to know– that if you get a snake bite it usually wouldn’t be fatal. Perhaps if I grew up with more snakes around I wouldn’t be so jumpy (I have small garter snakes around here)

      1. I think I’d more likely screech and run! Especially if they looked anything like your Aussie snakes! Though my Malaysian grandmother was a toughie she hit a cobra with a broom… and lived to tell the tale.

              1. I have plans to write a story based loosely on my dad’s life so it could feature in this… if and when I get round to it! Thanks for the thought. Need to gather some of my mum’s stories too!

              2. Families have a wealth of material good and bad for writing so good luck. I am in the early stages of a fictional work based on my uncle’s early life until he was killed in WW2 and then how this affected his family through to now.
