Glow worm tunnel

SPOT day


Glow worm was a sudden trip we made when i was in Sydney.


We have from left Xing Wen, Justin, M3, Tofu (dont know his real name) and


Jone.


The distance to glow worm from sydney will take about 3 hours of driving.. its far and also we have to rent a 4wd car coz the will be some off road track.


Thats why we rented Hyundai Tucson.


Half way there we felt we were kinda lost.. and we stop by an information center to ask for directions. It turns out we were on the right track.


and so we reach there and we have to walk in to the cave.


so we walk all the way in while enjoying the scenary


its not a easy walk but its fun.


we even need to climb stairs, steep stairs.ARGH.. can see how sian Justin is


quite happy when we reach tis sign, shows tat we are not lost, jus abit more further.


and then when we about to reach.. suddenly justin shouted.. SNAKE !!! thought he was joking but its real. The feeling is totally diff when u see a snake in the wild and a snake on screen.



it was on the middle of the road. What can we do?



After everything was clear. We contiue our journey. WOO HOO


At last we are there.


Tis is how the cave look like when we are inside, taken with flash.


Tis is how it looks like without flash.


spotted tis weird looking droplets inside, dont know wat it is but there is a glow worm inside which i dont think you guys can see here.Oh oh.. if you havent see how weird looking a glow worm is.. here is how it looks like.


but because its dark inside all you can see is their beautiful asses glowing.



Its beautiful. Like stars in the sky but nearer to you.


we walked all the way to the other side of the cave.


nothig different from the way we came in. so we jus walked back and tis is the end of our journey.
When we reach home, i was curious whether the snake was poisonous or not so i went wikipedia it..

Wikipedia
The snake is called the Red-Bellied Black Snake (so straight forward)
Venom
Although the Red-bellied Black Snake is docile, it will strike if provoked. Bites from Red-bellied Black Snakes are potentially lethal and require immediate medical attention. Tiger Snake antivenom is used to treat bites from red-bellied black snakes. While black snake antivenom can be used, tiger snake antivenom can be used at a lower dose. The smaller dose is cheaper to produce, and is less likely to cause a reaction in the patient. The Red-bellied Black Snake (when compared to other Australian species) is comparatively low in relative toxicity.


thinking back wat i did to the snake, nearly cost me my life.AH AHAHAHA
