Yeah, if I recall correctly you live in something like the equivalent of Melbourne's Chinatown. Which reminds me to remind you that if you get a moment I'd still like to see your book recommendations on the Vietnam War given that I found the perspective you presented in a conversation here about a year ago to be of valuable interest to me. There aren't many critters here in Houston that could kill me. Brown recluses and black widows are pretty much the only significantly poisonous spiders and in my part of town snakes would be a serious challenge to find. Amusingly we do have city coyotes. How they manage I have no idea, but there've been no reports of them threatening human lives. Cats and small dogs are however at risk on occasion. That aggressive funnel web spider y'all have down there is just a nasty little beast. And I reckon y'all must have at least half a dozen incredibly deadly snakes found over all the green growth areas. Then, there's even the ocean critters. Great whites having a surfer's leg for a snack off your south shore there. Those insane blue ringed octopi. Not too mention other beasts like Kangaroos and Cassowaries. What exact animals are you talking about in your backyard?
