(Cairns)   Not only do you have to contend with all the poisonous spiders, snakes, jellyfish, octopi and crocodiles. Now poison gas canisters are washing up on Australian shores. Australia has a vendetta against humans   (cairns.com.au) divider line 57

I was in Cairns in January for five days. I don't think it was mine. Are you supposed to flush your phosphine bottles with the #1 button or the #2 button?

/Wonderful town. Flying foxes are cool at sunset.

A lot of people who get killed by crocs are just drunk backpackers, going for a swim at night.

Paris1127: I've lived down here (Perth area) for 3 or 4 months now, and to be honest, the only deadly creatures I've seen have been in zoos. The worst experience I've had (aside from the dropbears... *shudder*) would be walking in the bush and seeing a bobtail lizard (or 2) and thinking it's a snake. I was also attacked by a magpie a few months ago. In fact, just today, up in the Perth Hills, I saw a Western Grey Kangaroo in the bush, standing completely still (which was good, since I got photos). There were also some echidna burrows. The fauna here is more afraid of us than we are of it. Considering that the Europeans introduced rabbits, foxes, dogs, cats and Cane Toads, I don't blame them.


I've lived in Perth my whole life, and I've seen exactly one snake outside of a zoo. However, that snake was in my farking kitchen, where I nearly stepped on it. (WA snakes are hard to identify, especially after they've been smacked to death with a shovel, but all the options it could've been are quite deadly.)

I have seen plenty of redbacks though. If you live in a free-standing house, I bet there's at least one redback within your property - hiding under the fence-top or in the corner of the garage. They're deadly, but not aggressive, so unless you have a habit of shoving your bare hands into dark crevices you're pretty safe. I only bother to kill them if they're inside ... if they're chilling under the guttering, I leave them alone.

That snake may have been a baby dugite. From what I've read, after birth (late Summer/early Autumn) they will slither anywhere they want, including into houses. And that's why only the shyest dugites survive to adulthood.
