AUSTRALIA'S LARGEST SCORPION

Arguably Australia's largest scorpoion is the Flinders Rangers Scorpion.  This scorpion lives in gullies and hillsides within the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. This is one of the largest scorpions in Australia with males growing in excess of 100mm from mouth to tip of sting. The females are generally a bit shorter although more robust. As with most species of Urodacus, mating and molting occurs in the early stages of the arriving warm weather and progeny are born in later summer, early autumn.

LADY BITTEN BY GOLDEN CROWNED SNAKE

Golden Crowned Snake -This reptile was located inside a office area of a house in Pomona today. He was responsible for having a lady hospitalised last night 21 Feb 2013. She has been transported to the Noosa Hospital by Qld ambulance with symptoms of... pain, swelling & nausea. Ray was called by the husband to locate and identify the species. Can grow to 75cm in length. Reluctant to bite, treat with caution, large specimens may be potentially dangerous.

TIP

 
Always wash your hands before and after handling snakes.  This is for your benefit and the snakes.
 
Reptiles can carry Salmonella, so it is always important to wash your handsthoroughly after handling your snake.
 

BEARDED DRAGONS - HINT

 
Bearded Dragons do not like humid conditions.  It can lead to respiratory infections and other health problems.  If you live near the coast, or in other humid areas, there are steps you can take to ensure that the enclosure doesn’t become too humid. Do not put any large leafed plants in the enclosure, as the moisture from the plants will increase humidity.   Likewise, during humid conditions, only put a dish of waterlarge enough for the lizard to drink from in the enclosure and clean up any damp or soiled substrate.
