So... is that as dangerous as it looks, or is it because I'm unfamiliar with the animal and it's behavior?

That is the question in my mind.

I will dive with sharks, hope to see them, and seldom do. However someone who isn't familiar with their behavior, etc might think I am absolutely insane - which I might be, but not because I'm wishing to dive with sharks.

Of course there are situations that you couldn't pay me enough to get in the water with sharks... I can't help but wonder if it's the same thing here.

That is definitely not on my bucket list. I have shared the water with a couple species of the Asian sea snakes, and was never comfortable with the encounters. I am surprised at the visibility. In my only trip to the Amazon basin the water looked more like choclate pudding. I suppose it is more like here, visibility is seasonal. You guys can go for it.

Hmmm to think I'm only slightly larger than a Capybara...

My problem with reptiles is I'm convinced that if you could plug an EPROM programmer into their brain you'd only see about 4 lines of code.

1 track moving object.
2 If object larger than self go to 1 else go to 3
3 eat object
4 go to 1

Okay, in reality there are probably another 8 lines relating to reproduction and finding a warm rock, but that's about it. I'm pretty sure if you don't pass the size test you're on the menu.

They have eaten children in the past, and the occasional adult. There are worse things than that, like if he(?) she(?) decides you're worth reproducing with...

Well if that snake wanted to, the diver would have had a serous Out Of Air emergency to deal with :nutty:

If that's the output you get when attaching an EEPROM programmer/reader, I'd be worried for other reasons. Like invalid execution environment. 0]

It's my own special language called[sarcasm]Visual madeitup .Not[/sarcasm] and as you can see it isn't machine readable. Or human readable. It requires the JoshSmith interpreter which only runs on a 0.5Hz abacus. So, yeah. It's pretty awesome.

I'm up for most things. But, that. I'll pass. Swimming with it fails the kmown risk benefit test.

A young SCUBA diver arrived in heaven. He was met by Steve Irwin who asked,"Have people learned anything about dealing with wild animals since I left the earth?" The young diver says, "Oh yeah! I was even diving with and Ananconda." Steve Irwin asks, "How did that go?" The diver says, "I don't know. It's the last thing I remember."
