    We all know that snakes aren't actually deadly. They merely have the opposite of a 'placebo' type affect.

    This guy clearly has been sucked into clever national parks propaganda.

    Why must snakes read? They don't don't need to, they just bite and off they go... No questions asked...

    Haha I read it the same way and was thinking it was going to be some clever editorial to a snake or something. Shattered my world.

    I'm not that surprised that snakes can read, but I'm puzzled how they can possibly ride a downhill bike...

    i lived in a town that had the highest rate of brown snake bites in Aus,the brown is a strange snake as it will stand its ground when confronted a rapidly strike,because it has very small fangs and highly toxic venom,so we recon that it is allways the second rider that gets bitten as the first rider disturbes the snake and is ready to strike at the second rider,thats why its important to always be first.
