I guess this thread is for those of you who have been in Australia a while, or maybe for your whole life. The times I have heard from potential migrants that the one thing that puts them off Australia is the amount of dangerous wildlife that is apparently around every corner waiting to sink its teeth, fangs into you and do you severe damage. So below is a list of the most dangerous creatures that inhabit Australia, I may have missed some, but they are the one that 'allegedly' as a human you may come into contact with. Just yes or no will do if you have seen any, or a fuller explanation will be fine. Remember this thread is about the animals that may find you,not the other way around. Have you seen these animals in your every day lives, NOT when you went looking for them, because simply that's cheating :biglaugh: and will skew the outcome. I HOPE to show that whilst Australia does have a number of deadly creatures it is a myth that they are around every corner and you WILL come into contact with them in your EVERYDAY LIVES. Taking my life in my hands here, as I reckon it is a myth to a degree, yep they are there, but hardly a daily occurrence. Here goes. 1. Red Back Spider. 2. Funnel Web Spider. 3. White Shark. (Of at least five foot long) 4. Tiger Shark. As above. 5. Brown Snake. 6. Tiger Snake. 7. Taipan 8. Crocodile. 9. Blue Ringed Octopus 10. Box Jelly Fish 11. And finally, a really angry and p....d off Koala bear. Come on folks, lets dispel the myth that Australia is alive with something that wants to kill you around every corner. Lets face it, you stand to be harmed far more in King Cross, Sydney, on a Friday or Saturday night.:biglaugh::biglaugh: It would also be handy folks if you couls say how long you have been out in OZ and what area you are in as this 'may' affect the outcome. Over to you Bobj, I have a feeling mate that you may have seen them all on your travels mate.:wink: Cheers Tony.:wink:
Dear all, after some remedies!!! My husband has been eaten alive and not by me! :Randy-git: We have both been bitten several times over the last couple of weeks but, I have never seen bites as big as these. They look and feel (he has said) exactly the same as other mozzie bites but they are HUGE. Any suggestions for relief and possible deterants for the little buggers? :eek: lol Ley x (will also post on lifeinvicrotia as well) :notworthy:
