It's not fear, it's the ability to discern when someone else should do the job. 

 

And as to your childish gambits, we all know about the lack of perception of danger in the unformed brain. Plus obviously, someone had to harvest food for the clan, yes?

You're a braver man than I am then. I caught a 'glancing' bite from an adder, in Devon (UK), a few years ago. Severe swelling and a nasty cramp of my calf for three days, ans a week or so of discomfort After that, if my dog wouldn't fetch her ball I would leave it.....she must have known the snake was there.
So, put me down for snakes (any), sharks ( I have a daughter in Queensland) and heights. Other stuff that I haven't come across I don't know yet but I reckon the list would grow.....crocodiles, Aussie spiders, etc.

The size doesn't make a blind bit of difference. All Venomous snakes are capable of delivering a venomous bite, fresh from the egg. Some of the deadliest snakes (Saw-scaled viper, Russell's viper) tend to be on the tiddly side too. 

 

I'm disappointed in TV that no one has mentioned the '''One eyed....' yet....

I know its Saturday, but come on chaps.....buck up...

A low blow with the unformed brain. I forgive you because i know you can't help yourself. FYI , I have eaten snake in Thailand. Tastes like chicken, only sweeter.

Personally, my phobia is sharks. Given your origins, other phobias may be leopard seals or orcas. You probably don't worry about polar bears due to the family ties. Decayed walrus flesh might be construed as cannibalism.

No photo description available.

I knew a real estate agent who handled huntsman spiders. Creepy b%gger.

The unusually cool weather of late rendered a snake unable to slither away quickly enough as I walked my dogs on a familiar jungle path a fortnight ago. I missed it (bronze, 12", believed to be non venomous now that i've had the chance to look it up) by all of 4" 😌

Earlier this year we were sat at the front of a bus going out to Isaan , saw this huge snake winding it's way across the the road in front of us. The bus driver parked his hand on the horn. Had to laugh ! !

The wife told reporters that the one meter long snake surprised her husband who ran upstairs shouting "Oh My God! Snake! Snake!"

keeping a healthy distance and your eye on where it is, is better than fleeing upstairs.

I'd rather know where it is.
