Rolo'sMummy, the "Snake Man" who I was screaming down the phone at hysterically told me that every old Queenslander house would have at least 6 snakes living in the walls & roof cavity. I stopped screaming and hissed, "Well, you'd better get out here & git 'em man, right now!!!" He laughed and said there's nought to be done, you can't catch them, and I replied my little 410 shotgun will get them then!!!!

When I stayed on farms in UK they all used to watch me comletely agog as I smashed my Wellingtons against a wall every morning, they thought I was utterly mad until I told them, "'tis the only way to dislodge the spiders and snakes".

I don't envy you guys with your birds of prey and wolves, that is at least 2 things we don't really have to worry about here, oh, and bears, but having the world's 10 deadliest snakes & crocodiles that get up to 15' plus long, deadly spiders, killer bats (from a virus dropped in their poo), deadly jelly fish, man eating white pointers aplenty, and heaven only knows what else, wildlife is a bleedin' nightmare.

Our silly Government slaps a protection order on anything & everything that kills man and beast damn them!

I will tell you , we have been here for 4 years, lived in Jersey all my life, the first year many times, my husband and I thought of moving back, but we went home (Jersey) the first Christmas and we didn't have snow, it was ranny , wet and cold. Came back home to FL and decided we rather bite the bullet and get over most of our fears. The snakes are one thing that really bothers us, we use to see one up home once in awhile, not like down here. The weather most of the time is so beautiful, the sky and water is so blue, that it is hard to move back.

We also have bears, Florida Panthers, which they say are few, but we have seen 3 in the town we live in. Many more things down here then up north, we just also found out we have a toad that spits poison.... I don't go to the beach anymore and go into the ocean that is a whole nother world that scares me half to death.

It's funny. Today in class we were talking about "mutant super roaches" as my professor called them. You kill them and they just keep coming back. No one in class understood. I just laughed. I'm Floridian born and raised and "super roaches" are extremely common. Critters of all shapes and sizes are common. Lol. Where in Florida are you?

Ye gads, those Florida Panthers (I had to google) are terrifying looking things, they'd make short work of anything!!! Oh, we have trillions of poison toads, our idiot Govt. brought them in to save our sugar cane from a harmless, non-venomous beetle, bless their cotton socks, grrrrr. They're called "cane toads" and are absolutely massive, they make purses out of them, keyrings out of their legs etc.

Hahaha Ash, when I lived down south you would never see a cockroach and, if you did, you'd avoid the home you were in, concluding she was a filthy cow. However, up here in the sub-tropics, they're 3" long and fly everywhere so everyone has them, they're just a part of life. Those and quite a few other species ranging from teeny weeny ones to long legged German ones that go like racehorses & love to live in all things electronic i.e. I emptied 100's & 100's of live ones out of a telephone base once, garrrgh - thank goodness for Diatom Earth, it gits 'em good

We do have a bug man that comes everymonth to kill bug, spiders, put stuff on red ants mounds..the more I am talking about Florida and all the negative stuff, I want to go home...Might as well mention the hot summers, I have never sweat so much in my life, till we moved here. Some reason I still like it here.
