8 inches: Correction, they were first found (by me) in Isla Vista, CA in 1997.


I was going to make a similar joke, but I see you did just fine.

Solid work.

I'm counting on many lulz when this goes full green.

Venomous?  Australia?

Obvious tag was on lunch?

"Western Australia" is what that scuba diver calls your mom, ie when he told your dad he was "caving down under in Western Australia".

Jesus Christ, Australia, is there anything in your country that DOESN'T want to kill you?

The venomous headcrabs are particularly quick and nasty.

Read that as quick and tasty.  Then got hungry.

Also, wouldn't headcrab=lice?

Kill it with fire.

I am starting to think that all these venomous and poisonous creatures, big and small, are being made up by the Australian Board of Anti-Tourism.  Everything'll kill you!  Go away!
 
2013-10-24 03:32:54 PM  
Is it a surprise to anyone that anything you find in Australia is dangerous?

" Worlds first case of venomous crabs turns up in Western Australia New Jersey"

FTFY

This really shouldn't be surprising, as some land-based arthropods are poisonous. Why should their tasty aquatic brethren be any different?

Venomous crabs?  No wonder the whole country is experiencing a burning sensation.

Venomous animals in Australia?
Surely you jest!

Headline is misleading.

They are crustations, but not crabs.  They were in the Carribean as well as western Australia.

If she'd just swallowed, there wouldn't be a venomous crab problem in the first place!

Ah  Canary Islands plus Caribbean & W Aus.  Does one hear equal opportunity savaging here?? Finn friend who went to Canary Islands ~ a year ago was lucky not to encounter any. Unless they hadn't swum there from Caribbean yet --
