Damn autocorrect. *best = nest
If I had a best full of babies I'd probably fight to the death too =o)Especially if most humans you come across would try kill you. They get an unfair rap I reckon.This one was a beauty
At least this one is tigerish colours. They come in pale, almost no bands at all, straight black, etc. Good spotting.
They might be seasonally aggressive. I've seen mother with a nest of babies willing to defend to the death against anything within 20 metres.
Quite common. Very poisonous (top 5 in world I think), but despite popular belief - not that aggressive (in my experience that is(I walked right up to this fella and he had no issue letting me take a pic. Just kept a wary eye on me.I see a few in my line of work and this one was probably one of the best examples of their 'tiger-like' markings. Good, big size too. ~1m
Is it common? poisonous? Is there a story?
