I would have nearly 'died' of shock /fright too if a Red Bellied Black Snake was on my windscreen too. The guys reaction would have kinda been mine too. A 'RBB' SNAKE are highly venomous and you can certainly die from a bite from one. They were in Queensland somewhere where its quite hot. Snakes are active during the warmth periods so they can eat. Winter they all hibernate. So I guess this not very old RBB snake was looking for a feed and there werent any mice etc in that car. Down here in Victoria and I m a city slicker, we are being warned about snakes here which is pretty rare, but it seems snakes are heading down south to the 'burbs'. Yikes! Im glad that where I live there isnt any scrub or long grass etc. As we have had bucket loads of rain down here this winter/spring, the snakes will be really hungry b/c we havent had any warmth. They have to be warm to eat but apart from that, they 're cold blooded. } Bit confusing huh?

No thank you! I am going to take a bath and I don't want to look over the side of the tub looking for things that crawl.

Snakes are interesting but some of the more venomous types one has to beware of. There is only one rattler in Canada, our cold climate means fewer venomous wildlife. Glad that I don't have to worry about running into these or even the Sydney Funnel Spider. They are formidable.
