what a scary prog. David Attenborough right now. Those snakes chasing that Lizard! Glad the doors and windows are closed
mind you, could be spiders around
Glad I didn't see them - snakes definitely not a favourite creature of mine!
Actually gave up on the programme after about 20 minutes: so fed up with the music - not background but foreground much of the time, and intensely irritating.
I said to hubby, if the snakes were CGI I would have said they had overegged it. Talk about a horror story. I hate snakes. When we were last on Christmas Island, I understood that the crazy ants were slowly being eradicated, to protect the crabs. There were signs up in the forested area warning of poison bait. The feral cats were euthanised, and pet cats were spayed or castrated to protect the birds that nest on the ground. No more cats will be allowed on the island.
Thank God I wasn't watching it.
I always liked the simile: 'as thin as a racing snake'. I thought it was made up - like racehorses are thin. But now I realise it must come from the racer snake.
My husband will have nightmares tonight. He's even afraid of the plastic poundshop lootbag snakes
We did find a red crab in our bathroom, on the upper floor!
I have been lucky enough to see these snakes. There are 5 separate species on the different islands. I hate snakes [ why do I go to places that have lots? ]
They are constrictors and not really harmful to people, although they looked bloody scary in the film tonight.
