Things That Can Kill You #2
Red Bellied Black Snake
I was walking up to one of
Island's many rock-like tourist attractions when I nearly stepped on this beast, I was reliably informed that it was a Red Bellied Black snake.
Descriptive dontcha think?
It does actually have a red belly, you just can't see it properly in this photo because I wasn't about to wave it around by its tail whilst shouting "Crikey," that sort of behaviour gets you stabbed in the chest by a stingray.
In case you can't make it out on account of my limited photography skills and unwillingness to actually die, its head is to the top of the picture.
So there ya go, my very first proper Brush With Death. How exciting?
