    The rings of Saturan have ice on them the size of Greenland. Is that little woman what one would say is a dwarf? I heard Austrailia is home to many snakes, most of them poisonous.Still it seems like a fascinating country.

    I like golden orb weavers. But the really unbelievable part is that someone with an English last name has the first name “Ant.”

    They already have an ecological nightmare because of introduced species, so trying to solve the problem by sticking in even greater nightmare species seems… even more nightmarish. Actually, with the Guam snakes, it appears that the only thing keeping the snakes alive are the presence of rapidly-reproducing lizards, and the larger snakes are looking pretty gaunt. So the predator success of the snakes will be in the end self-limiting and will balance out to an island of many (or few) snakes and lizards. (Maybe not a terrific tourist attraction, though… especially if you throw in some bird-eating spiders to duke it out with the snakes.)
