No, I like snakes. The one time my heart nearly stopped was when I was oblivious to a King Brown a few feet away and somehow my Staffy came roaring out of the house to chase it. It was epic and I have no idea how she knew as neither my ex or myself saw it until she chased it. Dogs. Amazing.
that was my fear, Rice -after separating, I lived there alone and had one of my GSP's been bitten I would not have been able to lift him into the car to get to a vet who was 15 minutes away anyway.
But all the snakes where I was were either brown or tiger so deadly!
It USED to until i lived on a property.
I saw many snakes and was totally freaked out each time particularly as I was breeding llamas, had two dogs, and had geese, and ducks!
The geese were great as they would squawk, the llamas were hopeless as they ran towards a snake to see what it was, and when this happened I had to run in between them to stop them as it was a huge tiger snake so I had to head them off. Oddly enough the 3 or 4 times my animals were in danger, the fear disappeared and something cut in to stop the fear and make me able to MOVE and move fast. Think I have already written on one question that i killed one snake with a stick as it was heading one way towards the llamas and the other way to the dogs - i got massive strength and thinking about this, it was very stupid as I was lucky I was not bitten!
Anyway the thought of a snake no longer bothers me, however if I were to see one now, and having been out of that situation for a few years, I weould be petrified.
That constant threat (I also lived on a river which made it worse for snakes, and had a bush block next door) was just one of the reasons I choise to come back to the city.
I think that snakes are interesting, and if you are afraid of them then learn all you can about them. I am terrified of spiders, but will watch shows about them. If they are in the same room as me then they are dead, and I am afraid snakes are much in the same way disposed of. The only good spideréor snake is a dead one. I am much too terrified to live in the same place of them.
I do have a healthy respect for venomous snakes,but I actually like pythons and have always been in line to actually hold these amazing creatures when at the sanctuary here. They are quite stunning. I would never touch one unless I was 100% of what it was,not ever. I have many friends up here who have licences to keep and care for snakes,so I think this has affected how I feel about them.
No, certainly not the thought of one. I don't mind snakes. I would just let them slither on by if I ever saw one. They are more scared of us than we are of them, and only if they sense any threat would they bite. Live and let live is my motto. Having handled them, and being educated about them at various animal parks, I would be careful and alert around snakes, but not fearful of them. Certainly not at the simple thought of them.
I'm not that bad, thinking of a snake is not the same as actually seeing one in real life. Actually coming face to face with one is kinda scary but I've done it before and it's amazing how calm I felt, I thought I would panic but they aren't really all that scary when they just lie there and stare at you. I think I would be more scared if it was more aggressive.
I hate snakes and spiders. They give me the hebe jebes. My daughter and I went to Cairns for a holiday and we went to the market every time to turned down a n aisle a man with a big snake was coming towards us. We discreetly changed directions , only to have this same man follow us. We got freaked out and decided to never go back there again.
That used to be the case for me. I didn't even like to touch a photo of a snake but this year I took a giant leap forward and had one asross my shoulders. I was still a bit chicken and asked the handler to keep the head away from me.
In all my years of camping I've only seen one snake and it was looking for water. I watched it briefly as it made its way to a pile of wood and disappeared never to be seen again. Was I scared? Not all that much. I was more interested in seeing it not emerge in view again.
I don't like snakes, I see them a bit when we are on hollidays in Robe, and at times they have been in the caravan park, I feel as long as you leave them alone they shouldn't be of any danger,but I always look on the ground when walking in the caravan park.
