Many people believe that snakes are poisonous, when in reality, they are actually venomous. Venom has to be injected through fangs to be dangerous while poison has to be touched or eaten. 

On “Snake Boss,” Julia Baker wrestles with some of the most dangerous, deadliest, and also friendliest snakes that are crawling around Queensland, Australia. A deadly snake is one with the most toxic venom, but rarely does it attack humans. A dangerous snake is one that will attack humans more often, but its venom isn’t as lethal. Australia is known for its unique wildlife and is home to many dangerous snakes like the Eastern Brown Snake, the Red-Bellied Black Snake, and the Inland Taipan.

Snakes on Snake Boss

Snakes can be found slithering through the cities, grasslands, deserts, water, and forests of many countries. Venomous and non-venomous snakes can be found in every U.S. state except for Alaska.

After watching a few episodes of the award winning series Redfern Now I was curious about the history of the show’s country, Australia. There are many topics the show touches on, but there’s even more that I didn’t know about Australia. Missing Prime Ministers, bullet-proof men robbing banks, and many other interesting things that you probably didn’t know about Australia either.

He had a bad shoulder and his doctor advised against swimming that day, but Harold had his mind made up.
