  1. Five of the nine, no worries. They’re in the ocean, me, not so much. Our Texas alligators are not nearly as aggressive but can seriously hurt you if you aren’t careful. On spiders, I’ll see your pair and raise you the Black Widow and Brown Recluse. No boxing kangaroos or killer cassowaries so you win this round on points. I’d love to see it all first hand and, who knows, it ain’t over ’til it’s over.

  2. Ahhh…funny stuff, Sandra. I still wish I was there right now. I have a nephew getting married in NSW tomorrow. I was sure I couldn’t handle the long flight, and other issues were pressing here. Still…I’d have loved to be there. ☺

  3. I’m reading “In A Sunburned Country” by Bill Bryson right now and it really does make me wonder at times how Australians survive when danger lurks everywhere (or so I think as I read the book). Here’s a quote:

    β€œ[Australia] has more things that will kill you than anywhere else. Of the world’s ten most poisonous snakes, all are Australian. Five of its creatures – the funnel web spider, box jellyfish, blue-ringed octopus, paralysis tick, and stonefish – are the most lethal of their type in the world. This is a country where even the fluffiest of caterpillars can lay you out with a toxic nip, where seashells will not just sting you but actually sometimes go for you. … If you are not stung or pronged to death in some unexpected manner, you may be fatally chomped by sharks or crocodiles, or carried helplessly out to sea by irresistible currents, or left to stagger to an unhappy death in the baking outback. It’s a tough place.”

    I tend to agree, it must be a tough place! How do you do it? πŸ™‚
