Yes, and another friend got bitten on the finger when picking up a rock to give to a friend for her garden rockery. How unlucky can you be, to pick up one with a snake under it. Anyway, her symptoms sounded really dreadful and scary, so even though she survived, it's obviously not a trip you want to take. I'd hate to imagine how many horses and cows etc. get killed after stepping on them, or dogs after they try to kill them. My friend Di lost one of her cats, a Siamese, she found it and the dead snake lying side by side. They are the worlds second most dangerous snake, the Taipan up in Queensland is the top of the list. Oh, and that one dead in the bird netting measured 4 foot 8 inches by the way.
