“Scared Weird Little Guys” is an Australian music duo that sing about all the deadly animals you may encounter if you come to Australia. Fortunately, I have not seen any poisonous creatures yet; however, I did get a good scare from a HUGE spider last weekend!
Inside the bedroom of the B&B I stayed in at Jarvis Bay, I saw the largest spider I had ever seen! It was a huntsman spider and was as big as my hand! I had no idea at the time that the scary spider is not poisonous; however, it does bite. I did know that it was a good possibility it could be poisonous as Australia is filled with many venomous and deadly creatures!
-Australia houses 7 of the 10 most venomous and deadly snakes in the world.
-Each tentacle of a box jellyfish has enough toxins to kill 50 humans.
-The venom of a Sydney Funnel Web Spider is capable of killing a human within 15 minutes.
