Snakes on a Plain

Just to add some extra info re snakes themselves to Steven's excellent
summary - snakes as you no doubt know can't hear -  my favoured method of
letting snakes know that I'm around now that they're emerging coming into
the warmer weather is a heavy step, plus a few strong stomps here and
there, they'll stop moving when they feel the vibrations until they work
out what it is.  And if there's a clear exit they'll turn tail and
disappear.  In my 70 years of living amongst snakes from the tropics to
desert and now dry southern bushland I've never met an aggressive snake
who'll chase you - mostly I've found them as keen to get away from you as
you are from them - and I've had dozens of encounters.  The only time I've
had one actually come towards me was one day I watered a big brown in the
garden by mistake, and he didn't like it!  I scooted!
