 One of the very first places on my list of countries rather continents I’d like to travel and explore is definitely Australia. I’ve heard numerous stories from friends that have visited this extraordinary place in addition to my own research about this exotic and wonderful continent. Some of the most intriguing stories revolve around the weather and the vast number of creatures, especially deadly creatures, living within this region where the deadly regions outweigh the places that are safe to live in. Even though there are a multitude of deadly creatures, I am continuously intrigued by this fascinating country and search for more information about these deadly animals.

So, I conducted more of my own research and what I found is definitely interesting. One of the first deadly creatures on the list is located usually in the Great Barrier Reef, a place that is said to hold more bodies of surfers than actual animals. The first one that tops the list is the Box Jellyfish; it is said to have an extremely lethal venom that is very painful when stung and needs medical attention even if you try soothing the wound with vinegar and removing the tentacles. Guess what’s next on the list? Of course it’s a snake, specifically this monster known as the Taipan snake. The Taipan snake has the most toxic venom out of all the species worldwide; it is large, highly venomous and usually stays away from humans but when it feels threatened, it will strike several times. Another animal that you can’t miss is the saltwater crocodile. This beast usually lives in Northern Australia and can grow up to 18 feet! It is known to take on water buffalo and humans with great power using its famous death roll attack – it grabs its prey and rolls powerfully until it dies. These animals only scratch the surface of the deadly creatures living in Australia but to be honest, I am still intrigued and still crave to visit this wonderful country. But, I’ll make sure to stay in the safe zones and avoid exploring on my own, just to be safe.
