If you’ve never been and if you’re not already aware, Australia can be pretty wild. Most people love the idea of traveling to the beautiful continent as they think of the wild life scenery, potential adventure, and the Aussie accents. The only animals these people expect to see a lot of are kangaroos. If you’re one of these people, I’m sorry but there is a reality check that needs to be received on your end.
Australia is filled with some of the scariest and most dangerous animals in the world. They have over 10,000 species of spiders and lethal sea animals you didn’t even knew existed.
Still don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself at some of the craziest and scariest things you would see in Australia below.
#30. A python eating a bat.
#29. A giant centipede killing a snake.
#28. Here’s a huge lace monitor goanna.
#27. Random creatures like this getting stuck to your back after a swim.
#26. A python consuming an alligator.
#25. Random baby kangaroos that like to sneak into your home and prank you.
#24. These disgusting things called paralysis ticks.
The one on the left is before feeding and the one on the right is after feeding on some blood. Yikes!
#23. This huge, mysterious jellyfish.
#22. Sharks nonchalantly following you as you surf.
#21. A ginormous fox bat that not only carries disease but sometimes bites humans.
#20. A lot of beetles.
#19. Can’t forget the flies.
#18. Snakes hanging out in the toilets.
#17. Snakes everywhere!
#16. Mountains of millipedes.
#15. Spiders and webs and spiders and webs.
#14. The worst fish you could ever encounter, stonefish.
#13. And the aftermath of meeting one if you ever get the chance.
#12. A camouflaged snake discreetly pulling up a buffalo.
#11. Pythons that love to shop.
#10. And of course, it’s not Australia unless there’s big crocodiles.
#9. They come in all sizes…
#8. And roam wherever they feel like.
#7. A wild dingo that has eaten half of the shark next to it.
You thought sharks were scary, now consider that the other half of that one is most likely in the dingo’s tummy.

#2. Hail that can hurt you if you’re not careful.
#1. Koalas offering a helping hand.
Well at least there’s some good going on.
