A very loyal Kiwi living in eastern NSW on a 100 hectare property. :D Last few days have been thirty six degrees and wow, it cooled down during the night to twenty five degrees, almost made me look for a cardigan.....NOT....lol. :(

And not to mention the reverse parking, big red bellied black snakes, spiders as big as the palm of your hand and L__O__N__G distances. [:(!] Just as well there is a guy here who makes it all worthwhile. :)

Welcome to the site. Watch out for the bitey things. Guess you know that Australia has most, if not all, of the top ten poisonous snake species in the world.

Please dont tell me that! Haha! I have actually only seen one snake since I have been here, and ran it over twice with the tractor, then put the hay mower down and went over it a couple of times, and then as I still couldnt see where it was, drove to the other side of the paddock and went out the other gate...lol.

Do something.

Either lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Welcome to the best group of people around. Please don't cpomplain and whinge, you are not a Pom. Kiwi's are nearly as tough us.
Aussies take take poisonous snakes, funnelwebs etc as normal. We would chase the snakes away and squash the funnel web spiders wearing thongs.
Nothing unusual but then I suppose you live in Mexico, the weakling state.
Come to sunny Queensland to see stamina and toughness, especially after the floods, bushfires and now cyclones.
And the season isn't over yet.
Anyhow, the East Coast of Australia is a great region, you will learn to appreciate and love it.
Regards,
Jan in Brisbane.

And in most cases, the most poisonous example in of a particular category of poisonous animals - from memory snake (Taipan), spider (Funnelweb), jellyfish (Man of War?), fish (stonefish), and octopus (blue ring). :D :D

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.
