    Re: Walkin' on rabies

    Wearing shoes fearing stepping on rabid bats is a bit like being fine running barefoot but wearing a helmet to avoid those flying snakes

    Now a hybrid fir tree moth, considering the size of fir trees, that's one for a monster movie!

    Re: Walkin' on rabies

    I understand the concern :/ I went running on the beach 2 days ago and on my way back came about 3 feet away from some sort of dead animal that was washing up on the beach... as I was approaching it just looked like a lump of seaweed so I didnít think it was a big deal... then as I was right above it (about 3-4 feet) I noticed a lump of dark grey/ black hair, no head...maybe an opposum but I didnít stay around long enough to check- and I was right in the path of water that was being washed back and forth..I skirted it, but now my anxious mind is telling me what if I stepped in fluids that were being washed around barefoot? I didnít notice any cuts but I mean... I wouldnít notice a tiny break in skin on my calloused feet....Uh I donít know what to do- and out of nowhere my toe was itching like crazy yesterday..

    Since when can rabies survive in salt water?

    Just thought I'd add: you can get a rabies shot BEFORE you get rabies if that would make you feel safer. It's a series of 3 shots, painless. I was required to have them when I started working at the animal shelter. That won't help with overcoming the phobia, but it might lower the anxiety a bit.

    I donít know? I mean I wouldnít think it could... but other bacteriaís do... they always tell us to not go in the ocean for a few weeks after A rain... so Iím guessing clearly something can live...
