Hi Aldo

 

In a macabre sort of way, it is rather beautiful. Smashing colours.

 

How big are they and are they poisonous?

 

Cheers

Yup, deadly. Although there is an anti venom available. In warm weather they move pretty quick and you wouldnt want to stand on one basking in the sunshine. Up to 1.5 metres long apparently although the ones I have seen have been only about 1m.

He is beautiful.

 

Wouldn't want him on the end of my bed though:wideeyed:

 

Do they have these in Victoria?

 

Cheers,

They're said to be very docile and you have to do something like step on them to get them to bite. For some reason they find being stepped on threatening? They can also have yellow bellies (maybe other colours too?). They are a beautiful beast aren't they - quite common in the Sydney area.

Had one living under a work bench where I worked, no-one told me about it until much later. Pity! I'd have loved to have seen it.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
