Snakes that I have encountered on my riding adventures.

2nd June 2018 - On the Federation Walk - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. While I rode along the gravel coastal path towards the Spit, I encountered a small brown snake, probably 2 foot long. As I rode over a slight rise and turning left, I saw a small thin snake, it definitely wasn't a python. I assume that it was a juvenile brown snake. I swerved a little and also lifted my foot off the right hand pedal. He quickly slide into the long grass. I stopped, but the grass was long and there was no way known, that I would walk into there to photo the snake. So no photo and I continued on my way.

15th August 2014 - On the seawall - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. The highlight was seeing the black snake sunning itself on the rocks of the seawall. I glimpsed it as I rode past and immediately stopped to take a photo, but I only saw it slither into a crevase before I could photo it.

29th August 2013 - On the Federation Walk - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. While I rode along the gravel coastal path towards the Spit, I encountered a small brown snake, probably 2 foot long, he made a very halfhearted strike at me but missed by heaps. Thank god.

10th September 2012 - On the Federation Walk - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. I headed back to camp via the Spit, where I saw another baby brown snake.

27th August 2012 - On the Federation Walk - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. Retraced back along the coastal path, about 500 meters from the Spit, another bloody 'baby brown' snake, as soon as he saw me, he was off into the scrub.

26th August 2012 - On the Federation Walk - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. Riding from the Spit along the coastal path, I saw another 'brown snake' very close to where I saw Monty the Python. At the snake demo at the market, the guy said there were plenty of baby brown snakes along this shared path. I believe him.

24th August 2012 - On the Federation Walk - The Spit, Gold Coast.

No Photo. Monty couldn't come and see me, so he sent his little vicious cousin. A 2 feet 'brown' snake. As I rode along the concrete path just out the back gate of the Sheraton Mirage, I noticed a small snake approx 2 feet and about as thick as your thumb. He had nearly finished crossing the path, when he saw me, he lifted his head and headed straight to the scrub. I kept well away and did not stop for a photo session. I maybe an 'old fart' but I'm not bloody stupid. Well, maybe just a little silly.
