Tiger snakes are deadly. When I was about 12 I was driving our farm manager around the ewes to check on lambing when he got out to check on a lamb which appeared to be dead. He picked it up and the tiger snake curled up under it got him on the calf. He ran back to the ute (a '55 I bought out of a neighbor's paddock and got running, completely unroadworthy) white as a sheet and yelled "get me to the hospital".
It was about 30 miles from the farm to the nearest hospital, and I drove there as fast as the old heap would go. I blew through a radar trap just inside town limits, but the cop didn't catch up until we were pulling in to the hospital by which time my passenger was barely conscious. They gave him anti-venom immediately and he pulled through.
I don't remember getting in trouble for underage driving on the highway, but they did tow my ute and I think it probably cost my dad more to flatbed it back to the farm than I paid for it in the first place.
