FIRE FIGHTER CYCLE
These Firefighters man the Innisfail Fire Station about 1500 km north of Brisbane Australia. I figured the minimum height and weight requirement to work here is over 6 ft 2 " and 220 lbs.. These guys put me up for the night fed me and we shared a lot of stories on firefighting. One member of each crew is trained in snake handling as many deadly snakes get into homes and they need to get them out. I showed them the picture of the green tree snake snake I caught with stick earlier that day. They said that's not a tree snake thats a Taipan the deadliest snake in the world and it will chase a person.
Just one bite is enough to kill at least 100 human adults or 250 thousand mice. Depending on several factors a bite if left untreated has the potential to kill someone in under 30 minutes. Its venom is about 50 times more toxic that the king cobra venom. I never trapped any snakes after that.
I am a fire captain and cancer survivor.
