- Holy Crap! Arrggghhh!!!!
Bull Ant innit? Don’t let it bite you, hurts more than a wasp sting (I once crashed my bike into a nest of ’em as a lad, took a couple of dozen bites/stings, never forget the pain! Lucky I wasn’t allergic!) very aggressive ants in the defense of their nests, poke one of the holes with a stick and watch how may rush out spoiling for a fight! 😯Posted 4 years agoWheelie goodMember
Ha ha, I don’t know what is wrong with the creepy crawly things here but they either seem to be huge or mental or both! Was watching a spider on the ceiling last night, it kept just jumping off the ceiling and hanging down on its thread, I think it may have been trying to judge how far away I was and calculate how fast it could jump down, bite me, then run back up!Posted 4 years agoBerm BanditMember
Mate of mine quit Oz and returned to the mother country after this experience.
Took family to a barby at a mates place. At the end of the evening gets kids who by now are asleep and puts them onto back seat of the car. Wife and he get in and turn the headlights on, only to see the biggest meanest **** off spider on the windscreen. Wifes on the verge of wetting herself so he boldy says “it’ll be fine I’ll knock it off with the wipers” as he flicks wiper lever…. several second later the realisation sets in that it’s still there and therefore on the inside. Cue screaming, general panic and flapping, followed by a whine of increasing pitch from Mrs to the effect that that it we’re going home…Posted 4 years agoPigfaceMember
I was down one of the old mines I used to work in in W.A. I was crawling along a broken drive when my helmet light caught a big spider in its beam, smacked it with my hammer and pushed the squashed carcass out of the way. Returning about 30 mins later having finished my recce the spider had gone 😯 this worried me a bit so I had a hunt around for a bit and found it about 8ft down the drive. I then pummeled it into its component parts.
Another type of spider I think they are called golder orb weavers or something, they used to put these webs like nets between trees. Gorgeous gold coloured webs, alwayd wondered if they were trying to catch roos 😆Posted 4 years ago
According to QI far more people die loosing control of their cars when they discover a spider behind the sun vizor and panic than they do from actual bites.
officaltob and others who know Cardiff – the snake was on the Taff trail behind Tesco. Musta been 3ft long which is apparently very big for an adder. Plenty of slow fat rats eating supermarket scraps I suppose on which to get big.Posted 4 years agoMcHamishMember
Friend of my wife’s emigrated to Australia and told us about the various animals that can kill you.
I don’t think the country is inhabitable to be honest.
There are 4 ft high chickens with a razor sharp bone on top of their head that will disembowel you if you look at them funny.
They may not be chickens…they’re called cassowarysPosted 4 years ago

Not so highly visible at night, hence:
they were trying to catch

I suppose that’s preferable to the other option…. that something bigger ate it! 😆Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
This is reminding me of the Fosters advert where some tinnies fall into a flooded area, bloke wades in to get them, says to his mate, ‘hey, mate, any sharks in here?’, to which his mate replies, ‘nah, no sharks.’ Pause ‘ Crocodiles ate all the sharks’. Which still makes me smile.Posted 4 years ago
It seems that Oz is pretty much inhabited with just about every reptile and invertebrate that will go for a human, or anything else that moves, with extreme predjudice!
Not to mention the bloody sea life!
Box jellyfish, anyone?
