Oh, lovely photos Rick!  I am an animal lover and I love all reptiles, even snakes. These shots made just my day.

Nice ones, Rick.

I came across a Sand Monitor today near Lake Cargelligo.

Really good photos Shorty, I love the first shot and the third one too. I saw some big lacies recently but I didnt have my camera with me unfortunately. One of them came within a metre of me.

Thanks Rick, now that's a phrase i have not heard in a long time "Ducks guts" :)

Thanks Tim, some places down the coast if you don't zip your tent they come in looking for a feed. When ever i go close to these things i always stay low, don't want them thinking i am a tree and climb up me :)

I went to Inskip Point, near Rainbow Beach, near Gympie, Qld last weekend and saw this on the path most of one day.

I hope that they didn't eat the Black-breasted Button-Quail but I am not sure as I did not see the BBBQ.

I hope that you can see the flickering tongue in each pic

They all look so scarey. I am seriously scared.

Hi Nate. Most of us have been seriously conditioned into being scared of rather than having a healthy respect for snakes. Most snake species are very shy & will avoid contact with humans. Far better, perhaps, to develop respect for snakes & view them as an integral part of the natural environment - while at the same time ensuring the safety of babies & toddlers where there are likely to be snakes. Watching snakes playing their role in the natural environment is seriously interesting.
