Another day, another few Red-bellies.
This is the kind of shots the better half doesn't really like me taking even with a long lens.

Why, are they venomous? I have a very strong primal fear of snakes. It defies all logic and rationality.

Think it's classed among the top 10 here Downunder for venom (if some sources are to be believed it's in the top 25 list worldwide), though there's been no known deaths since antivenine was made available.
I'm very used to seeing these ones and still have an initial "fight or flight" reaction, more when I'm not expecting one or only spot it late.

I've been wondering... is there a place where it's explained why this series of four threads is called 'Reptiles or Lizards'? Lizards are reptiles.

This has been asked before. Maybe qualifies to be an FAQ?

I suppose it's historic: whoever started this thread named it so and that has carried on.

Another forum has me pegged as "The nope rope bloke" as all I keep on running into lately is snakes...last weeks walk was quite along those lines, a few Redbelly blacks and not much in the way of birds.

Just another Iguana. He took off like a rocket and jumped into the canal just as I was about to get a better angle.
