In answer

Yes
yes
yes
No

Im on my phone but ill dig my multan pic up for you later.
had a fair few encounters with em
they ain't aggressive

There actually one of the least aggressive and ate most likely to give you plenty of warning to stay away. I would have stepped on one except it started hissing that loudly

As for inland taipans - would that be the most deadly snake to never have killed someone?

Easterns and tigers I've always found shy and quickly take off same as gwarders and dugites
Young und are alot more excitable due to being low down the food chain.

Snakes are like any other reptile like a bobtail or goanna. They prefer to run. If you get close enough they tell you to P.O then if your still silly enough to ignore them they may bite

When im back on the outer (currently at the ravensthorpe pub) ill post a short clip of me being "chased" and "attacked" by a hooded scalyfoot (very good snake mimics in looks and attitude"

Might give people some idea as to how gild these stores originate.

I asked australias most experienced snake handler if he'd ever known a snake to chase someone.

He laughed and said "yep heard of plenty of people being chased.......... never heard of someone being caught "

Nuff said

did he tell you he's Australias most experienced snake handler? or is he really the most experienced... there's usually a big difference.

No I worked it out for myself. He's been doing it since adam was a boy literally
he's been there done that
anything you can think of he's done it from writing books to making tv shows to writing papers
He catches the snakes for his courses often on the way or brings the ones he's just removed

To put it ink perspective I recently did yet another course with a different guy and was disappointed he used pet snakes

Australian most experienced is a big call granted but he would definitely be up there
