    Yep...never visiting Australia.

    Oh....my....God. Have a friend is currently working in Oz and they found this (and it's babies) in the boot of the car *shudders*. I suffer VERY badly from arachnophobia. Hell....I'd just buy a new car.

    Australia. Koalas aside, everything wants to kill you.

    If you have a moment, search Youtube for buff kangaroo. You'll thank me for it.

    Koalas can be nasty - I had one hump my leg when I was over there. I think it thought I was a tree (I was young and skinny then).

    Incorrect. We have the Katipo, but I've NEVER EVER seen one. And I was always told you'd need to be VERY young, old, or already sick for their bites to be fatal... :/
