A big eastern brown has been hanging around the town house. We're in the final stages of packing house to move (settlement is on Friday) so we've been in and out in and out with boxes and crates and the kids underfoot the whole time but I'm really hesitant to shoo the kids outside with the worlds second most deadly snake sunning itself some place on our path or just off in the garden. Big bastard too - a nice fat 1.4 to 1.6 meters I'd estimate, and bloody aggressive. Sorry, no photos - The only time I saw it and had a camera at hand I was barefoot and nothing makes you feel quite so barefoot as a brown eying off your ankle. I have no shame in admitting that I ran like a girl.
