Australia is the best place in the world to live and I wouldn’t dream of ever moving to another country. However, like most awesome things it does have its drawbacks, one it being infamous for its dangerous animals and wildlife. It has more deadly snakes than any other country worldwide and is home to several of the world’s top ten deadliest spiders – The Sydney funnel-web, the Redback, The Black Widow and the Yellow Sac. In my opinion the only good spider is a dead spider. Add to the list the Box jellyfish, the Bull shark, the saltwater crocodile, the Blue-ringed octopus and it’s a wonder any tourists ever visit our great land Down Under. That said, the most dangerous thing you can probably do is cross the road; if you are smart and don’t go looking for trouble, ie. swimming where there are signs warning you of danger, lifting rocks or logs, and watching where you are going, you will have no deadly encounters. It’s true we lost our beloved icon, conservationist and crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, to a stingray, but if you consider he spent his life with deadly animals our reputation is largely unfounded and you should not let it deter you from visiting our incredible country which has so much to offer…
Nice spider. Come here and let me pat you.
WITH MY FOOT!
