There were some comical moments that helped lighted the mood somewhat. Floods, of course, effect not only humans but the critters and creatures too. As when you help a neighbour out in times of trouble, so can sworn enemies in the animal kingdon. Check out this frog hitching a ride with a snake from twitpic:
|Can we stop off and get some worms mate?|
|Five snakes in the bed and the little one said...|
With the all the fox holes, snake holes and the usual good hiding places flooded by water, the snakes naturally seek out new homes and to do that, they gotta get through that body of water. Same as the humans so it's no surprise that the two beasts collide and Queensland authorities decided to stock up on anti venom just in case someone got a nasty surprise:
Imagine coming home after the flood to find this snake curled up on your fence. He's hungry and you're lunch! During the floods people were also on the look out for crocodiles but I couldn't find any pictures of them swimming down a local street!
