A lot of dogs are killed by snakes in Australia, Ticks is another danger, they would probably kill more dogs than snakes.You'll have to get some high boots and a forked stick...I took a grass snake home once and my mam nearly had a fit!
The old Jack Russel nearly had an adder when we were up in Scotland but I pulled her away sharpish and it went into the bushes.
I got a tick attach to me while fishing, didn't feel anything until I got home managed to squeeze it out intact right in my crutch it was. I cracked it, they have a hard shell, left it on the bedside table to show my wife but it still manged to crawl away. Made my wife sleep on that side of the bed that night.Tics are dreadful things!
Box jellyfish only sting women.Pretty terrifying the fauna in Oz. Remember taking a hot air balloon ride out of Cairns and being terrified lest we ended up landing in a river full of salties. Meanest creatures I've ever seen. Throw in the boxfish jellyfish if you went in the sea ,and the odd shark, its a miracle we got home. Thankfully funnelwebs were further south apparently.
To be honest Clint I wasn't impressed with the gardeners delight, I did do some research on them where it was mentioned that as it was an F1 that it had changed for the original, they were small (same size as sweet 100) and not sweet at all. Do you get Tommy Toe over there? They are an Australian heirloom, small to medium size and very sweet. Mr Fothergil does them.Nice picking Foxy! My seeds are in the propagator...gardeners delight,a small cherry type called candy crush,zappetos,Ukrainian purple, marzano..
