Inland Taipan

Often cited as the world’s most venomous snake, the Inland Taipan is far from the most dangerous. Unlike its group member,the common and blazing tempered Coastal Taipan.
The scientific name of the Inland Taipan is Oxyuranus microlepidotus.

Toxic venom
One bite possesses enough punch to drop 100 fully grown men.The venom is the most toxic amongst any snake anywhere in the world.If you are biten you have less than half an hour to inject ante-venom or get to the hospital.Several bites have been recorded and successfully treated by taipan anti-venom.No won has ever died by this snake but it is still very deadly.

The length and colour of the Inland Taipan
The colour of the Inland Taipan depends on where it lives and the season.The upper surface of the snake can vary from dark brown to a light straw colour.Inland Taipan can reach a total length of 2.5 metres, although 1.8 metres is the more usual length. The Inland Taipan is dark blue and black in the winter and in the summer it is olive green brown.
Where it lives and what it eats
The Inland Taipan native to Australia inhabits the plains in the region where Queensland, South Australia and the Northern Territory borders converge.It also lives in Central America.The Inland Taipan lives in the desert and inland lakes.It will eat every thing but the diet is almost solely made of small mammals, particularly native rats.It can be found in lots of fields because that is where lots of rats are.
Life cycle of the Inland Taipan
The Inland Taipan lays eggs and it can lay from 12-24 eggs at a time. The female has to carry the eggs for 50-80 days, then the Inland Taipan will lay her eggs in a abandoned burrow that is moist. Soon after the eggs are laid the mother will abandon her eggs. The life span of an Inland Taipan is about 2 years.

Conclusion
The Inland Taipan is a very deadly snake and can kill 100 fully grow men with one drop of venom.The inland taipan can live for 2 years. It can grow up to 2.5 meters.

Aboriginal people discovered Australia, and have lived in Australia for more than 50 000 years.
The first Europeans to discover Australia arrived in the 1600s.They were Dutch explorers from the Netherlands.
Captain James Cook explored and mapped the east coast in 1770.
Australian Aboriginal people were hunters and ate the animals they caught, they were also gatherers of plants that could be eaten.

nfl modified

One 11man team has possession of the football. It is called the offense and it tries to advance the ball down the field-by running with the ball or throwing it – and score points by crossing the goal line and getting into an area called the end zone.

The other team (also with 11 players) is called the defense. It tries to stop the offensive team and make it give up possession of the ball. If the team with the ball does score or is forced to give up possession, the offensive and defensive teams switch roles (the offensive team goes on defense and the defensive team goes on offense). And so on, back and forth, until all four quarters of the game have been played.

THE FIELD
The field measures 20 meaters long and 10 meater wide. Little white markings on the field called yard markers help the players, officials, and the fans keep track of the ball. Probably the most important part of the field is the end zone. It’s an additional 10 yards on each end of the field. This is where the points add up! When the offense – the team with possession of the ball-gets the ball into the opponent’s end zone, they score points.
TIMING
Games are divided into four 4 minute quarters, separated by a 3 minute break at halftime. There are also 2-minute breaks at the end of the first and third quarters as teams change ends of the field after every 4 minutes of play. At the end of the first and third quarters, the team with the ball retains possession heading into the following quarter.

Each offensive team has 40 seconds from the end of a given play until they must snap of the ball for the start of the next play, otherwise they will be penalized.

If a game is tied at the end of regulation, a 4minute overtime period will be played. Possession is determined before the period begins by a coin toss.
THE PLAYERS
Each team has 3 separate units: the offense those players who are on the field when the team has possession of the ball; the defense (see section below), players who line up to stop the other team’s offenseand special teams that only come in on kicking situations (punts, field goals, and kickoff.Only 11 players are on the field from one team at any one time.

THE KICKOFF
A game starts with the kickoff. The ball is placed on a floor by some won on the same team at the defense’s red semi crial which is 5 meaters from the ring-yard line and a special kicker kicks the ball to the offense A kick return man from the offense will try to catch the ball and advance it by running. Where he is stopped is the point from which the offense will begin a drive, or series of offensive plays. When a kickoff is caught in the offense’s own end zone, the kick returner can either run the ball out of the end zone, or kneel in the end zone to signal a touchback a sign to stop the play.
FIRST DOWN
All progress in a football game is measured in meaters . The offensive team tries to get as much “yardage” as it can to try and move closer to the opponent’s end zone. Each time the offense gets the ball, it has four downs, or chances, in which to gain 5 meaters. If the offensive team successfully moves the ball 5 or more yards, it earns a first down, and another set of four downs. If the offense fails to gain 5 meaters, it loses possession of the ball. The defense tries to prevent the offense not only from scoring, but also from gaining the 5 meaters needed for a first down. If the offense reaches fourth down, it usually punts the ball (kicks it away). This forces the other team to begin its drive further down the field.
MOVING THE BALL – The Run and the Pass
A play begins with the snap. (the position on the field where the play begins), the quarterback loudly calls out a play in code and the player in front of him, the center, passes, or snaps the ball under his legs to the quarterback. From there, the quarterback can either throw the ball, hand it off, or run with it.
THE RUN
There are two main ways for the offense to advance the ball. The first is called a run. This occurs when the quarterback hands the ball off to a running back, who then tries to gain as many yards as possible by eluding defensive players. The quarterback is also allowed to run with the ball.
THE PASS
The other alternative to running the ball is to throw it. Or as they say in football, pass it! Usually, the quarterback does the passing, though there are times when another player may pass the ball to confuse the defense. Actually, anyone on the offensive team is allowed to pass the ball as long as the pass is thrown from behind the line of scrimmage. A pass is complete if the ball is caught by another offensive player, usually the “wide receiver” or “tight end.” If the ball hits the ground before someone catches it, it is called an incomplete pass.
THE TACKLE
The defense prevents the offense from advancing the ball by bringing the ball carrier to the ground. A player is tackled when one or both of his knees touch the ground. The play is then over. A play also ends when a player runs out of bounds.
SCORING
The object of the game is to score the most points. There are four ways to score points in football.
TOUCHDOWN = 6 POINTS
A touchdown is the biggest single score in a football game. It is worth six points, and it allows the scoring team an opportunity to attempt to get an extra point. To score a touchdown, the ball must be carried across the goal line into the end zone, caught in the end zone, or a fumble recovered in the end zone, or an untouched kickoff recovered in the end zone by the kicking team.
EXTRA POINT and the TWO-POINT CONVERSION = 1 or 2 POINTS
Immediately following a touchdown, the ball is placed at the opponent’s two-yard line, where the offense has two options. Usually the offense will kick an extra point, also called the point after touchdown, conversion, or PAT. If the offense successfully kicks the ball through the goal posts, it earns one point. The offense can also score two points by running or throwing the ball into the end zone in the same manner as you would score a touchdown. Since going for two points is more difficult than kicking an extra point, the offense generally chooses to kick the extra point.
FIELD GOAL = 3 POINTS
If the offense cannot score a touchdown, it may try to kick a field goal. Field goals are worth three points and often are the deciding plays in the last seconds of close games. They can be attempted from anywhere on the field on any down, but generally are kicked from inside the defense’s 45-yard line on fourth down. For a field goal to be “good”, the placekicker (or field goal kicker) must kick the ball through the goal-post uprights and over the crossbar. The defense tries to block the kick and stop the ball from reaching the goal post.
SAFETY = 2 POINTS
The safety is worth two points. A safety occurs when the offensive ball carrier is tackled behind his own goal line.
TURNOVERS
While trying to advance the football to the end zone, the offense may accidentally turn the ball over to the defense in one of two ways:
THE FUMBLE
When the ball carrier or passer drops the ball, that’s a fumble. Any player on the field can recover the ball by diving on it or he can run with it. The team that recovers a fumble either gets-or retains-possession of the ball.
THE INTERCEPTION
An aggressive defense can regain possession of the ball by catching (intercepting) passes meant for players on the other team. Both fumble recoveries and interceptions can be run back into the end zone for touchdowns.

THE TWO SIDES OF THE BALL
THE OFFENSE
Whichever team has possession of the ball is the offense. While only the quarterback, the wide receivers and tight ends, and the running backs can legally handle the ball, it is the quarterback who is the leader of the team and the playmaker. In fact, he’s a man of many talents – he not only throws the ball, he outlines each play to his team.
THE OFFENSIVE PLAYERS
The quarterback (“QB”) passes or hands off the ball.
The center snaps the ball to the QB and blocks the defense.
2 guards and 2 tackles keep the defense at bay.
2/4 wide receivers catch the ball thrown by the QB.
1 or 2 running backs take the ball and run with it.
1 or 2 tight ends block the defense and can also catches passes.
THE DEFENSE
The job of the defense is to stop the offense. The 11 men on the defensive team all work together to keep the offense from advancing toward the defense’s end zone.
THE DEFENSIVE PLAYERS
Linebackers defend against the pass, and push forward to stop the run or tackle the QB.
The defensive line (ends and tackles) battles head-to-head against the offensive line.
Cornerbacks and safeties defend against the pass from the QB to the wide receiver and help to stop the run.
