A Pic You don't see every day...Our Daughter was swimming in the Yarra river at Heidelberg a few Years back.Half way across She was grabbed by the ankle with such Ferocity and strenght She was dragged under water...(which She recalls as the most Frightening Moment)...Suddenly free heads for shore...Luckily only moments from Heidelberg Hospital...our Daughter spent a week in Hospital and I (Dad) took this picture 1 week later,2 weeks after the Bite..You can see it is a very big Bite from a very big Eastern Brown Snake...Took Her about 8 months to regain Her full composure...It was considered Her Misfortune was simply to swim across the path of Snakey...Cheers.
