And then you have this:

Those photos were taken 24 hours ago by a very long term mate of my Son. Said mate of Son is a hugely successful Lawyer who is a North Queenslander. He was back up there from Brisbane for a School reunion with his Family. When those photos were taken, his two daughters one a young teenager and the other a preteenager were present. And, among other things, he is a work place health and safety expert!!!!!

Bush Turkeys are very little buggers and the worst they can do is make a mess of your yard digging etc.

(I am trying to post an image of one...and I get this shit ~ "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." Faaaaaark!)

yeah , wouldn't want to face a Cassowary on a narrow tropical path.

Perhaps that is part of the beauty of living in Australia.... City dwellers can dream their dreams, but people in the Bush have to face the reality of LIFE every day.

That is..? lots of things can kill you, and your perceptions of safety are bullshit.

Do hope you guys in Texas weren't caught up in the Tornadoes. Good Luck with that.

It was on the News here recently.. I'm not putting up a link... where a pet Male Deer killed the husband and critically injured a wife, in Victoria.

A male deer in rut gets very aggressive, the wife, as far as I know is still fighting for life.

Yeah, that python was a pet. There are some huge wild ones in Florida. They are not native. The State of Florida is trying to eradicate them, but there are a lot of them.

yep ..all those dickheads who illegally import such things, thinking they're so cool.. are truly harming the environment all over the world.

Not to mention the illegal smuggling of wildlife. How awful it is... greed , doesn't give a shit.

I agree. Pythons should not be pets. I can see having a few in zoos, but not in private hands, especially in an area like Florida. Florida's climate favors pythons.
