The gliding tree snakes in SE Asia? They are very similar to one of my local tree snake species that comes in a variety of colours. There are even blue ones around town and here is a partly blue one.

Mike I've owned bird dogs and coon dogs but I think you may need a snake dog. You need a breed that can smell the snakes and alert U of the snakes without getting bit by the snake. Mike when I was a wee little lad my grandmammy told me a story about the Garden Snake That Could Talk.He was actually very good at selling fruit.lol :)

Mike I found a snake dog. A fella down at the pub says that he can hypnotize Snakes by wiggling his ears.Lol
I'm not too sure how his ears would react to a whistling snake :)

Don't know how well that would work with an angry taipan or eastern brown snake in my area as those ears might be target practice.

Well Mike maybe he could just distract  that Taipan with his ears long enough for you to put a bead on him with Old Sparky.

People might be interested to know that there are 20 recognized "metallica" species, perhaps my favorite being Aloe (not alloy) metallica, whose anthem could well be "Don't Tread on Me" or "Harvester of sorrow" but not "No leaf clover."

Heavy metal rival "Anthrax" surprisingly has a namesake with the Colombian orchid Pleurothallis anthrax, which I can only assume is a host species for the fatal bacteria.

There's no such thing as "ultra tropical"

Now that is very interesting I'll have to check with Mike T on that. It could be that only the weeds grow with that type of music.Lol

Many moons ago I took a young Puerto Rican girl to a laser light show and they played Metallica The Sandman. When we came outside and got in the parking lot she told me that she may have seen the devil.Lol

Reminds me of the snake (defanged cobras) charmers with 'Been Pungi' / flute music! And also the mongoose and the cobra duel.
About 20 plus years ago I kept a radio tuned on to the then new kind of noise like 'Rap', 24 hours a day in my vegetable garden with only some success of deterring the ground hogs initially. After couple weeks they started to enter the garden again seem to be ignoring the 'Rap' noise! So I removed the radio.  Same with the rabbits.
Each species of snake emits a certain specific scent and you may need many dogs to pick up each different scent. For taipan, cobra and others and have each dog's specialty!

Do not play banjo music it only makes them dig faster. Dogs contribute greatly to humanity. They can perform so many different tasks but I don't think that we can say that man is dog's best friend.

Does That make the New Technique a sound Garden, and does the term Audio Slave offend some?
Is the Anthem for plants Tree's by rush

Quote
There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

If plants are trying to spread their seeds  , do they despise Consumers ,
 the cherry pickers that shake the cherries out of the tree's for Consumerism
Do the tree's long for Rage against the Machine music
(or the Bob Dylan cover they did ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more)
Quote
No, I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more Well, I wake in the morning Fold my hands and pray for rain I got a head full of ideas That are drivin’ me insane It’s a shame the way she makes me scrub the floor I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more No, I ain’t gonna work for Maggie’s brother no more

Does Poke weed grow faster in fear when hearing Tony Joe White Poke Salad Annie


I have thought of a few of these While on a post that died Harmonizing with tree's (but I can not remember )
But I feel a out cast with the trees when singing Monty Python Lumber Jack Song

Great stuff Triph and I think some in here could benefit from a little culture and who better than Sir Les Patterson ex-cultural Attache' and ambassador for the Arts to listen to. A champion of gender equality, racial harmony and gay rights. Look at a few minutes of this interview with Parkinson and the lady beside him is Jacki Weaver, best actress academy award winner.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkrbfkTHCn8

That Guy is Funny, but
You mean to tell me all I have to do is have a Alter Ego of being a sloppy drunk, and wear Drag to be famous what am I doing wrong?


Funny you brought that Up I was watching a funny Person for the first time on Parkinson  ,m on that show a week or so ago
and I do not even Youtube , and Never saw the Parkinson show

Kenneth Williams

Not going to get in to it , but  some Humor today , but I find some of the stuff Over the top
I was only Born in the early 80's , but watched some three Stooges last night
Like to see them Fight Amongst themselves for the Bad Guys (or good guys ) attention in drag as a disguise
Now a days who ever writes this stuff it'd be over the top to busy I like the subtle humor better.

After doing that with the rap music
I hope a girl Friend didn't Run off with this Guy
Looks like he got a Bag of your stuff
Ethnobotanical stuff 
Hope everyone had Fun.

Consider yourself Lucky

Cows have classical music to help them get better milk yields. I  have always believed in plants being affected by music.
