Did you say snakes?

Australia – When this young mother and son heard noises in their roof from outside, they investigated and found two large male pythons battling it out for the affections of a nearby female. When breeding season starts, most pythons begin to move around in search of females, and wrestle/fight for the right to breed.

    As Ford Prefect would say – “mostly harmless!”

    • As Harrison Ford would say – “Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes?!”

        Ahhh! But they were Asps and other venomous critters.

        Carpet snakes are indeed “mostly harmless”. There are a lot more critters DownUnder that you need to be very aware of.

          It’s easy to tell in Tasmania. There are only two species of snake, and both of them are poisonous.

          • We only have one species of snake in the US, the copperhead water rattler. It has quite a variation in size and coloration, though.

    Good metaphor for the up coming election. Except I did not see the smaller one hacking up a hair ball

    How does a snake know if it won?

    I don’t do snakes… It’s in the contract, read the fine print.
