It sure does mate so taking the kit is simply a case of being on my own in the bush; if I can take precautions I will. A bite from an inland Taipan or Eastern Brown and you might only have a few hours so the pressure bandages really help. Even in cooler Tasmania where I went, the Tiger snakes are mean and angry all year round and they'll do your nervous system a serious disservice. Then there's the spiders. I've had Redbacks and Sydney Funnelwebs (world's most venomous spider) in my house, the jellyfish are lethal (Box and Irikanji), sea snakes, millipedes, sharks, saltwater crocodiles and this is before we get started on the people!
