    While in Australia I developed a whole new Snake and Spider awareness. I honed a sort of sixth sense /hearing thingy that could detect their presence.

    Why’s the guy stepping over the log wearing lederhosen? Is that one of the requirements? Like, snakes only bite Germans?

    Yeah well, its NY, one never knows what bizarre things will turn up. Check out Central Park. Between May & early June they have “birding” you can check out all sorts of migrating birds, they offer tours.(Brig your binoculars) Great time to be in the City & I was fascinated to find-out that they have such a wide variety of exotics that stop in for a break.

    It’s a nice guide if you want to avoid being accidentally bitten, but a lot of serious and potentially deadly snake bites are caused by people deliberately messing with dangerous snakes.
