Close-up wildlife

People down in Victoria are having very close encounters with wildlife, according to stories in The Guardian.

One of the nice things about Oz is the abundance of wildlife all around - nice apart from things like snakes of course.

And even the cute furry ones can  be less cute if they're too close.

First story was about a woman in Frankston who found a venomous tiger snake pretending to be a decoration on her Christmas tree. She took a quick photo, and very sensibly shut the door and called a professional snake catcher.

Then in Torquay, a couple were having a Sunday morning lie-in when a kangaroo crashed through the window and jumped on the bed with them.  It bounced around the house until it found the back door open and hopped off.

Only in Oz.

The stories are here:
