If are going hiking or camping in areas where you might see snakes have a look at the above site for what to do in Australia if bitten by a snake.
Thanks to St. Patrick's work in Ireland, and his subsequent trip over to Wales to talk about his triumph in all of the pubs throughout Great Britian, there are still some Welsh that are dearly afraid of the slithering serpents. On our trip to Hepburn, we met one such Welsh woman, who even the mention of a reptile had her hair stand on end.
As the concious reminder of Australia having 7 of the deadliest snakes on earth resonated from several VT members, we looked around at the Lavendula farm prior to the fearful visitor's arrival. Confirming our research, the parking lot of Lavendula has a sign mentioning that snakes are a fact of life in the farm, and to watch out when something rustles from a bush.
As we walked through the fields, much to our surprise, there was such a rustle.....
Luckily, on this occassion it as merely a kindered old soul of Great Britian.... Scotty, the fearless Scottish terrier here to protect us from those little legless lizards!
