    that`s not the worst of your troubles! there is a subspecies of the box jellyfish called the irukandji. It packs a punch known as the "irukandji syndrome" which includes excruciating limb cramps,, severe pain in the back and kidneys, sweating, vomiting, headaches, restlessness and high blood pressure! and it all lasts for WEEKS ON END! yaaay! Oh yeah and you know what`s worse? they are FRICKEN INVISIBLE! they are so small that it is virtually impossible to see one before they sting you and send you into hell. Oh yeha, and those jellyfish nets that australian beaches put up to keep OUT the box jellyfish? irukandji is small enough to swim right past `em.

    There`s so many dangerous animals in Australia, it`s kinda silly.
    Kangaroos are dangerous (I`m sure their kick can kill you), Cassowaries can kill you with their kick and they`re ugly, there`s a load of spiders and snakes which can kill you and there`s various fish, jellyfish and octopus there which can kill you.
    I lived there for a while, I remember being taught in school to shake our shoes in case there`s a spider in them. All the spiders I came across weren`t deadly poisonous though, and the only snakes I saw were in enclosures in zoos. And I remember whenever we went to the beach there`d be a bunch of man-of-wars washed up.

    I`ve spent several months in Australia and the only poisonous animal I`ve seen there was a dugite (a snake).

    Holy freaking crap!!!! I`ve come to a decision and decided NOT to go to Australia or South America. If the poisonous creatures don`t get you, it will be the plane ride home in which one could become LOST. Whereas you`ll get trapped on a crazy freaking island and encounter way worse monsters than the mentioned ones in the article.

It`s the Koalas you gotta watch out for with their beady little eyes and big flappy heads. If you turn your back on a Koala it will eat your soul. Also Pinkand green in repsonse to:

    Rofl! Oh god no. If there were kangaroos hopping around the city people would be terrified to go outside (unless of course they were tame somehow).
    Kangaroos are pests, but you`ll only find them in the outback and in zoos.

    First of all, did anybody pay attention to the description of this video??? wtf? "This is precisely why they tell you to check your shoes before you try then on when you wake up in a place. "

    And no there are not roo`s hoping around everywhere! I mean, on like 70% of the land there is, but thats because its mainly outback
    But the places where they are lots of people... definitely not lots of roos

    I doubt I will end up with an octopus in my shoe at any point in my life.
