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!

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)

Two legged beasts (people) are far more dangerous than any of these!

Whoa! Besides the distance to fly there, the creatures definitely make me want to stay home.

Think that’s bad. We’ve got Scousers, Geordies and Brummes. Probably the deadliest mammals on the planet.

Yikes! Glad I live on the prairies in Canada. Nothing worse that grasshoppers and mosquitoes.

They look like starfish. If a newcomer to Oz have mot heard of them they would pick them up. Their blue rings ligh up when poked, very pretty.

Sharon P, Perhaps the word you are looking for here is Herpetophobia (the fear of reptiles. I think homophobia might be only the fear of gay reptiles
