Wolf

I suppose it is quite surprising that up until now I haven’t written anything about Wolf Spiders. I was reminded to do so though, when Mike made a comment on my post What It’s Really Like to Be Bitten by a Redback Spider. Mike was bitten by a spider the other day; he thinks it [...]

Last Friday, in my post about the hot weather, I showed you a video of a carpet python in a swimming pool. I also mentioned a different python was found wrapped three times around a baby’s arm and the baby’s mother had to pull the snake off. The poor baby got bitten a few times [...]

hot

It’s been a hot, hot week here in Australia, very hot. Here in Brisbane, we’ve got off quite lightly compared to many other towns and cities. That said, the temperature gauge in my car peaked a couple of days ago at 38°C, that’s just over 100°F. Everybody has been feeling the heat, including snakes. This [...]

It was around the middle of March this year when Mrs BobinOz said she wanted to have a little chat with me about something. She wanted me to sit down for it, never a good sign. I was expecting the worst. “How do you fancy a holiday abroad?” She said. Ah, this isn’t so bad, [...]

I’ve seen a lot of weird, wonderful and beautiful things since living here in Australia. Some I caught on camera, others were too fast or unexpected, so I missed them. It’s pretty easy to tell just by reading the following article which were which, even easier because those that were too fast or unexpected don’t [...]

Previously here on BobinOz I have brought you many similar and scary posts. I don’t need to list them here, they are all featured on my page called… Australia’s Killer Creatures and Death But don’t click over to read that just yet, you can do it later. Today, I need to talk about… Sharks and [...]

This week, on various different days, communities in and around Brisbane have been marking the anniversary of last year’s floods. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cop2si0Dd-A As the reporter in the video says, the weather around Brisbane this week has been absolutely glorious. He’s right, it has been truly scorchio. Temperatures have been reaching between 32° and 37°C. So it [...]

In Wednesday’s post I talked about Ping-Pong Poms; that’s Brits who come to Australia to live and quit to go back to the UK again, maybe several times. They are welcome to do that, of course, but what does that make me? I’ll tell you…. A Lead Balloon Pom. That’s right, I’ve landed in the [...]

It would be wrong of me to write articles such as Australian Snakes and Death: Continued, if I wasn’t also prepared to write about snakes when a fatality occurs. I have always defended snakes and played down the dangers they present to the residents of Australia. With good reason too; anyone who has read that [...]

As you saw from Wednesday’s post, the OECD has found Australia the best country in the world to live in. But that is not an opinion shared by everybody. For some time I have been working on a post called ’10 Reasons Why NOT to Move to Australia’. When I say “working on”, what I [...]
