or at least things a sane, living in civilization in the 21st century, person should never have to worry about.
While Port Douglas is about an hour north of us, our little village does have a serious issue with pythons. The other morning (at 3 AM) I turned out of our drive and came to a dead stop. Stretched out across the road was a python. I couldn't get by it on one side, and was debating if I could get by on the other. Thankfully it moved before I had to run it over, right into our yard.
And yet people ask us why we got such a big dog. At 50 kg, she is at least bigger than a wallaby!
