In a comment CeCe thought that there was too much emphasis on spiders in this blog. So it's lucky then that our neighbour called us over to see a Green Tree Snake (Dendrelaphis punctulatus) that was sunning on their fence. They are a most attractive snake, don't cha think. They are about 1.5m long and very thin with a lemon yellow underneath and variable but usually some sort of green / brown verging on blue on top. They are non venomous, mostly eating frogs, insects, worms and the like. I didn't find a good link to give you the background on them but I thought this was interesting.
Our's and the neighbours kids were fascinated for all of about 5 minutes then went to play in the mud.
