Unfortunately for us, Australia isn’t entirely populated just by friendly locals, cool kangaroos, and cute koalas. The Land Down Under sometimes seems like the most dangerous country on the entire planet and should be renamed to the Land of Nope. In large part, the country owes its reputation to its ruthless natural hazards, the dangerous animals that live there and all the scary things that want to make us yell ‘nope!’ and run away faster than the speed of sound in the opposite direction.

To show you just how scary Mother Nature in Australia can be, Bored Panda created a list of all the dangers lurking in the Land Down Under. Keep scrolling, share with your friends and upvote your fave dangerous animals in Australia!

From enormously big spiders, to deadly venomous snakes, ferocious crocodiles, octopuses and disgustingly overgrown earthworms, the Great Southern Land seems to have it all when it comes to nightmare fuel and creepy crawlies. We can probably all agree that some Australian animals look absolutely terrifying, but how dangerous are they really?

Around 170 snake species live in the country, 100 of which are poisonous. However, that’s not even the worst part: a grand total of 21 out of the world’s 25 most venomous snakes inhabit Australia. Snakes kill an average of 2 to 4 people a year here, but the number of casualties seem small when you compare it to the 11,000 individuals that snakes annually kill in Asia.

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

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.

If poisonous snakes don’t cause you to scream and panic, then what about spiders? More than 2,400 different species of arachnids call the Land Down Under their home. Among them is the deadly Sydney funnel-web spider, which can end a person’s life within 15 minutes of biting them. This spider always gets into the top lists of the world’s deadliest arachnids and doesn’t mess around: if you see one, nope right out of there!

That’s not to say that every single spider you encounter abroad is going to be a threat to you. Fortunately, less than 50 Australian spider species pose a threat to people. Let’s also not forget that most spiders are our friends and help keep the native insect population down. Obviously, these tidbits of good news won’t really make Australia’s spiders any less scary to look at. Anyone with arachnophobia should probably still avoid Australia until they get over their fear of spiders, and travel elsewhere for their Summer vacation.

Meanwhile, sharks in the country kill around 2 people each year, whereas crocodiles killed 14 people between 2005 and 2014, compared to 10 deaths during the 33 years preceding 2004. However, it’s not just animals that can harm you in Australia. The country is also known for its giant 10 kg pine cones that can fall on top of you as well as tennis ball sized hailstones that can cause serious damage if your head is unprotected. When in Australia, it’s best to either keep looking in all directions at once in search of threats or shut your eyes and wish you were somewhere safe and sound.
