23 Proofs That Australia Is Without A Doubt The Land Of ‘Nope’

Australia must be the complete opposite of Japan in terms of tranquility and peace, if that is what you picture when you think of that nation.
Pythons that eat alligators?
Check.
Pinecones the size of a toddler?
Check.
Giant crocodiles resembling dinosaurs
Check.

Australia is notorious for its harsh weather and untamable wildlife. It makes sense considering that this country has more deadly snakes than any other in the world. Although sharks, spiders, and snakes receive the majority of the negative press, Australia’s fearsome reputation is actually the result of an amazing variety of predators and venomous animals. It’s home to the world’s most venomous snake: the inland taipan ! It’s the only place you’d hear wacky phrases like “A dingo ate my shark!” or “We had one spider drag away our pet Labrador one year…”.

Images of Australia’s natural beauty may lead you to believe that everyone and everything is out to get you. But it’s not as bad as it may sound, so don’t worry. After all, you won’t find adorable koalas or platypuses anywhere else in the world.

Believe It Or Not, This Is One Of The Least Dangerous Spiders We Have In Australia

This is the huntsman spider, a common friend to be found in houses and garden across Australia. He’s harmless really, don’t let his large size intimidate you. Huntsmen won’t bite humans unless provoked, are not venomous and are actually handy to have around the place, he’ll use his speed and agility to keep your cockroach population under control.

Think of the huntsman as a handy pet. Respect his space, let him do his job and he’ll look after you well.
