Mum might prove to be a little more difficult. A 303 will do the job, or pick up a fresh kill on the side of the road.
I've hit a few over the years, two on bikes (me not the roo). Last one smashed my left shoulder in 13 places.
Wombats are a bugga. They look like a rock on the side of the track till it runs across your path, and you do the superman over the bars.
Run over a brown snake and it will flick up to bite your leg or if your lucky the seat. Yep 2" behind my leg.

Don't like the sound of that ,always wondered if snakes swould bask on the road during daylight and what they'd do if disturbed etc.They are my pet phobia can't stand'em ,think I'd be carrying a 12 guage and if I saw a snake about or crossing the road  though a .303 would indeed do the trick  as you say, obviously one of the many things which make your life and riding so much deferent to our much more mundane existance, Cheers BobH.
