Well I have managed to keep alive for almost 70 years in this land of Oz! It’s the two legged beasts that are the most deadly!

We have lots more scary creatures. If you don’t step on them or see them then you don’t need to freak out 😀

No black mambas but we have quite a few snakes with higher toxicity. Example eastern taipan, King brown, and the deadliest in the world the western taipan(but they are extremely shy and live in remote desert area) No.3 is disturbing as the blue ring octopus only flashes those iridescent rings when it is agitated and it bites with its beak That person was in extreme danger. no7 the gecko is an artificial wall fixture. The chances of seeing or running into any dangerous animals , insects or amphibious creatures is extremely unlikely. Come on down and we'll put an extra shrimp (prawn) on the barbie (BBQ)

Hey, Australia, I have a question about what was shown! Were they what you would normally see? Just curious! Thank you, if anyone could answer this! 😊👍

Janice Sheppard, We don't have black momba's in Australia. You may be thinking of a taipan which is dangerous and is black. And it's a Red Back Spider. And the octopus is the one shown above and is called a blue-ringed octopus but it's not exclusively Australian.

What about the funnel web spiders? Walk barefoot in your back yard, disturb one and die.
