I thought I heard something once about what one's supposed to do when you see a nun or nuns?

Tremble in a corner?

zaskroniec or a viper, for which you need a......serum injection if bitten.

No species of zaskroniec in Poland are poisonous.

The snake was brown in colour but i did not see it's head

This was a young one. Later in their lives they change colors.

Polish crossed vipers (┼╝mija zygzakowata) is the only poisonous snake in Poland but the intensity of the poison is so small that serum is need only if a small child is bitten. Adults will not be killed, by one bite.

I never said that one needs serum for zaskroniec, but viper is another story.
I know that it is not very poisonous but why take risks. He might be allergic, one never knows.

Has anyone seen a wild Bison in Poland? and what are the chances of seeing them and where is the best place to watch them?

Why does Polish have the letter "V" and is it only used for foreign words?

Why do so many sockets not have an earth?

I see a lot of sheep skin for sale but I very rarely see any sheep, does anyone know anything about that?

i]read this next bit with the song "Born to be wild" playing[/i]

Thank you for your concern but I am a brave man (or stupid) and I will live dangerously with out the serum

For sure, and so I didn't write about your writing skills but my comments were an affected by them, as I took what you wrote for what you meant.

no serum for Sean then;).

I already clarified that. Viper - serum, zaksroniec - no serum;) for me.

I've heard the cold months are better, but I don't know how truthful that is.

It's probably true because in summer there are more people on the beaches who look for amber ;-)

bramkaz, thanks for the link. I just learnt about the bats reserve - that's so cool. I must go there one day.
