Australia has the huntsman spider with a legspan of 5 inches, the giant huntsman spider, which is the one with a 12 inch legspan, is found in Laos.



I saw a video of one the size of a dinnerplate eating a mouse. Was quite crazy.

It's that wretched place...

Want to run away from it? No, this thing will kick you in the neck...



Want to swim away? Fat chance, this thing will make a meal out of you...

oh my god this is so funny, you guys got trolled good, yes Australia has all these deadly animals but I've never not once ran into any of them aside from some tiny little spiders ( and a red back belly snake, not dangerous ) and I lived on a farm and in the outback for a
years. I love how everyone is so terrified of Australia and than I'll see something on the news about another country and I'll think how terrifying that country is and how lucky I am to be in Australia.

Not sure if i should say thank you or be offended.


I don't feel like I have an Aussie accent but when I call my uk friends they always say my accent is cute. Does that happen to you too ?

Look at the size of it! How can anyone survive a day in a place where everything can kill you...

Then you have shit like this...



At one point in time that's how it was in the U.S. Then we colonized, killing off all dangerous predators systematically. Which of course makes us horrible monsters, not wanting to raise families around dangerous, man-eating animals.

Nah the cows ain't that bad, generally the same rules that apply to horses, don't walk behind them or appear in their blind spots, depending on the cow, some are downright mean don't go near their young. It's the chickens and gooses that annoy me they keep escaping from their pens, one of the chickens on multiple occasions breaks into my nans house and eats the cats food while the cat watched it eat. The cat used to be a stray but it kinda adopted my nan and brother and has stuck with them since, his good for keeping snakes, rabbits and possums and such away.

Dude, Australia is fucking awesome. If there's anything that should deter you, it is our government.

I'd rather be killed by a spider than getting shot randomly in a restaurant or shopping mall, to be honest.

Yes this.... Terrible governmet(s), high taxes, political correctness, etc... ruining our great country.
Plus very high utiltiy bills and expensive yet slow internet..

It's funny the reputation that the Australian insect and wild life has. If you live in normal suburbia you dont see things like that. It's only out in the out back and in the small country towns.
The biggest spiders that i have ever seen were huntsmans and orb spiders. Pretty big but nothing like in these photo's.
I do remember once i was driving and in the corner of my eye i noticed a big arse huntsman was up in the corner in my car partly behind the sun shield(whatever you call that thing you can flip down to block the sun getting in your eyes) , i was wearing shorts and i was driving at night and i just remember thinking "please dont fall down onto my leg"
I kept my composure though and made it home. Once doing so i got the insect spray and sprayed about half the can on the bloody thing. Cunt would not fucking die!

As far as sharks an all of that. Well it's simple. Dont go surfing and you will be ok

Australia is pretty cool though, overal. Peaceful and safe. But it is following in parts of Europes foot steps and stupidly not learning from their examples...
And we're fairly Americanized in some ways. Like getting fat n shit like that.

EDIT: oh you dont have to go far to see Kangaroos or Koala bears though. I actually saw a kangaroo not far from my house the other day.
