The main dangerous snakes you are likely to encounter in Victoria
are the tiger, brown and black snakes. You can find them almost
anywhere, including in urban areas. In 13 years of bushwalking I
have come across 5 snakes in Victoria and all but one disappeared
before I could get my camera out. They're pretty shy creatures and
to get bitten you've practically got to stand on one or annoy the
hell out of it. If you see a snake, look at it and leave it alone.
