It seems there will be a population explosion across Australia with most of our native species.
A record number of turtles are mating on the NW coast is one example, as the food chain grows.
No doubt we will have to be vigilant in the goldfields next season and yes gaiters will be a must for protection against the slippery ones.

Cheers

Picture of Huge King Brown Snake at Cardwell.

Picture could be a Hoax, but even if it was half this size I wouldn't like to come across it whilst swinging the coil.
