Also known as the Land Down Under, or OZ, the island nation of Australia captivates the imagination of travellers thanks to its history, people and natural beauty. Sure a significant part of Australia’s birth was thanks to the prison colonies that were established for convicts of the British Empire – but today it’s much more than that. Ayers Rock, the Great Barrier Reef and the sprawling Outback have all become symbols of the country’s diverse habitats and are all popular destinations for tourists who flock there every year. Not into the natural beauty? Australia also has some iconic man-made landmarks, including the world famous Sydney Opera House, which are known by people all over the world.
Thanks to films like Crocodile Dundee and the nature specials of Steve Irwin, people not from Australia also know that down under there are some pretty bizarre and dangerous animals. In fact, when you consider animals like the kangaroo or duckbilled platypus, it seems like Mother Nature packed all her strangest creations onto Australia. Yes, there are dangerous animals everywhere in the world but pound for pound, Australia seems to have the biggest share of sharks, spiders, snakes and other deadly creatures that walk the earth. Why would anyone choose to live in a place inhabited by so many lethal animals? To be honest, most aren’t common and people have adapted to living with some of the more common creatures that they happen to cross paths with.
