    Size DOES matter! Incredible wildlife photos reveal just how big animals really are – from a bear paw larger than a human head to a towering Clydesdale horse

    Stunning photos show the incredible true size of animals

    Incredible photographs compiled by Bored Panda, which were taken by people across the world, show the incredible true size of some terrifyingly large animals. The images include an enormous moose walking through a car park (pictured top left), three Clydesdale horses (bottom left) dwarfing a man, a hippo (bottom right) towering over a small boy, the paw of a sedated grizzly bear (centre top), a lion (top right) and a crocodile (bottom, centre).

    Which deadly spiders are you talking about?

    Funnel-webs and redbacks.

    Okay, funnel-webs are a worry but redbacks you can see easier and they like damp places apparently. Just don’t lift anything with bare hands off the ground that has been there for awhile. (That includes toilets seats lol).

    EEEEKs!  RnR poor you!

    What is he up and about for isn’t he meant to be asleep this time of year?

    Perhaps you need some sort of spray to make him find another cosy home!

    What about some vinegar?

    🙂 The python was a while back Celia.

    He/she was living quite happily in the backyard for quite a while before deciding to move on to my covered back patio. That was when I took a stand.

    Me with soft broom nudging a very cross python off the back steps. If looks could kill LOL. Must have been too much for him/her. Disappeared, never to be seen again.

    I used to enjoy watching it sunning itself on top of the side fence before our “Battle of The Steps”.

    Have had a little one inside in the past too, just locked up anything edible and left it alone until it got hungry and went went outside again about 3 days later. Didn’t call the snakecatcher because baby python took up residence beside the fridge and I didn’t want it scared and escaping into the fridge workings never to be untangled LOL.

    You have given me another reason not to live in Queensland!  LOL

    Not only the virus to be safe from but spiders and snakes too, hope you will cope from them all. 

    Hope you have family close by to help too.
