I have set fourth to do one drawing each day of a random species, picked by my numbered list at random with random.org. I might provide some information with it.
Today it's the Inland Taipan (Oxyuranus Microlepidotus). it's a snake that lives inland on the east half of Australia. It's one of, if not the most venomous snake, being able to kill up to 250,000 mice with one dose. It's color varies from season to season, ranging from a dark tan to some sort of brownish olive-green, it may appear with a dark head and tiger like stripes down it's body, made from a darkening on the edge of the scales. The length varies from 5.8 ft. to 8.2 ft. It's diet consist mostly of rats and other rodents with the occasional small mammal and birds. The venom that the Inland Taipan injects is a potent neurotoxin and sometimes stiffens the blood of it's victims.
Let's hope our outback guide is more friendly than it's little counterpart <.<
I kinda like how this came out... especially considering the time (2 hours). The stripes on the snake might be a bit to vivid considering it's the winter coat and it mainly just is a dark tan with only slightly visible stripes.
