Nov 6, 2009: Diner in Arizona
Nirvana forwarded an email titled “Diner in Arizona”.
So what does one do besides forward it to “all” in the address book?
I know Google it!
“Diner in Arizona” – nothing
“Cloudbreak Arizona” – nothing
“Diner in Arizona email” – one hit, essentially a copy of the same email, posted online.
“Snake eats Goanna” – Bingo! 24,400 hits

I was a little surprised to read about goannas in Arizona. Maybe you have Ogoannas, like with Opossums.

No Goannas and no Pythons in Arizona wilds, except possibly lost pets.

That snake has a serious blackhead.

I'm confused None in the wild in Arizona and yet these pictures were shot there? Are you saying it's a hoax?
go easy on me, it's Friday (I'll have my lizard-stuffed snake crispy with a goat-cheese dip and a garden salad, thanks.)

It's gonna take a lot of fiber to get that moving out.

What? No Turducken adaptations?

"...he and his workmates watched on stunned as the snake consumed the goanna lizard over about five hours..."

Thanks for finding that Bruce! I thought these were cool pictures but I did not think lizards like that existed outside zoos here in the USA. The dirt looks all wrong too. It looks like red clay. I think when people pass around emails its kind of like playing that game called telephone and the real story is interesting.

If the goanna is a monitor, is the snake a merrimack?

No, it's a DVI cable.
xoxoxoBruce Friday Nov 6 11:37 AM
This one said AZ, but the lizard is only found in AU/S.E.Asia, and the snake only in AU. So it turns out to be a true story from Australia, not Arizona.
There was/is another email(s) going around about a moose being born on someone's lawn. The pictures are real, but the story places it in every northern U.S. state, or Canada, depending on which email you get.

xoxoxoBruce Friday Nov 6 11:46 AM
Probably, but the email said Diner. I suppose the snake is the diner, in this case.

Once more truth, justice and the American way wins out. After reading all of the posts, I, uh . . . went back to the original quote, then googled Pilbara.

Arizona, Australia, just different spellings for the same place, just like Australia and Austria. Same difference.

I found the Black Headed Python, but for some reason when I try to find out what kind of snake this is, I get distracted.
capnhowdy Sunday Nov 8 08:33 AM
What snake? Pic, please.
TheMercenary Sunday Nov 8 10:05 AM
Killer earrings on that chick! Nice.
SPUCK Monday Nov 9 05:45 AM
Merc. You don't wear earrings THAT low.
