    Every thing ;)
    Life is a constant struggle over here beezel ;) not a day doesnt go by where we dont risk life and limb just leaving the front door.

    Sharks: ours swallow you whole, no nibbles here.

    Spiders: Dont forget to check those slippers before you put em on.

    Snakes: We got both kinds :p The ones that will kill you quicker than a cobra and the ones that will crush you then eat you.

    But it aint all bad some beaches dont have sharks, thats because the crocadiles ate them all.

    Even the good old octupus is poisonous down here!!

    And dont get me started on killer bee's

    Meh! ;) Evil will be the least of your worries

    Dont forget the

    Box Jelly fish

    Bird eating spider (yes this sucker eats birds)

    Red Back Spider (this little bastard likes to hide out under toilet seats)

    Dingo's (they like small children) thats why Toddi is always occompanied by an adult whilst camping :p

    Bunyip's (dont swim in the river alone)

    Drop Bears (I had a freind that got attacked by a drop bear very nasty stuff)

    there's the deadly obi-wan toddi....one bite from him and you're a dead man

    then the venomous dark-disciple - if he manages to sting you, make sure you get to a doctor within one hour


    one look from the obnoxious evil-incarnate and you will be guaranteed a short, but painful death


    :D






    but seriously


    red-back spiders bite. and hurt. sometimes badly. but there is an anti-venom.


    wolf-spiders and white tail spiders hurt - and people tend to end up having limbs amputated.


    snakes are more scared of us than we are of them. but they can still strike when you're not looking.

    oh, and watch out for the drop bears, hoop snakes and the wild possums. many a tourist has gone missing in the outback because of these creatures

    I was going to mention Drop Bears but Dark beat me to it.

    My mate also was attacked by a drop bear who mistook his head for the back of a female drop bear in heat.

    The scream he made still haunts me to this day. His scalp had to be surgically attached back to his head - there was something like 470 odd stiches. Very naasty, and my mate is still scared today.

    Nasty, nasty stuff.

    If you go in the bush, it's best to where a helmet.

    Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez, give the poor guy a break.

    Imaginary creatures......will you ever learn.

    REDback spider???? Please.

    Just stay away from the Drop Bears and the Hoop Snakes.
    OH...and don't go into any caves, the Triantiwontigongalope will be waiting for you.

    Platamapus's (yes cause apparently the way Jesicca Simpsons says it is right)
    Are Dangerous, they have big spikes on the back of there feet

    and there is a Spider the size of a dinner plate that actively hunts. Nasty thing too, been known to take down an emu

    And you can't forget Hanging Rock, What ever you do. Dont go there and run off alone, you will never be found again and someone will write a book many many years later.

    apparently Jessica Simpson has an IQ of 160....makes her eligible to be a member of Mensa...shows you can't always judge a book by it's cover.

    maybe it's just all an act?

    MsWinter has obviously not come across the deadly King Brown, these things arent scared of anything! They grow to 3 metres long, have been known to enter areas occupied by humans and worst off all it likes to bite and poison can kill.

    the easier question to ask is thus "What are the NON dangerous animals in Adelaide?"
    The answer "Some of the sheep"

    Blue ringed octopus is a bad one so don't pick up any tiny octopusses when examining rock pools.
