:facepalm:

Could my post be taken out of context even further? :shrug:
We’re all on a derailed tangent, having fun.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Small knives can do what big knives do, just slower.

Your application with the Aus board of tourism has been denied, thank you.

Just stating facts.

We have a beautiful country, but some really nasty and angry animals.

We have this beautiful spider called a whistling tarantula.

My wife had one as a pet for a while, until the damn heater in the terrarium carked it and the spider died in winter.

The spider was what is known a s a new world spider.
Old world spiders can be handled and are generally reasonably docile.
New world spiders are generally not handled because they are seriously aggressive, very fast and even the the ones considered non poisonous ones have enough poison to make you quite ill.

Anyhoo, the whistling tarantula is a new world spider and feeding it was quite the Adrenalin rush .
Just opening the cage brought it to attention.
Drop the cockroach  (woodbug) into the cage and it shot out of its hole, straight at the roach, the speed and aggression gave you a start every single time.
It wont kill you if it bites, you just throw up and feel intense pain for 24 to 48 hours.

Its about 10 cm across, (about 4 inches) but has been known to grow up to 15 cm (6 inches)

The Sydney funnel web is much nastier.
It goes hunting for a female, and nothing gets in its way
Anything that does gets walked over or bitten.
Dogs and cats are imune, humans are not and its very very toxic.

But my little favorite is the Blue Ringed Octopus.
Tiny thing, about 25 to 40 cm in size, lives around rocky shoreline where people fish and kids play.
Its quite reclusive, and requires a bit to get it out of its hole.
And when you do it gets all these pretty iridescent blue circles all over its body
THIS MEANS ITS REALLY REALY ANGRY.

They people say, Oh How pretty and put it on their arms.
It bites them
The toxin stops the heart, the lungs and you die, usually in about 2-3 minutes, unless CPR is administered until you get to hospital.

Yet very few Aussies die from all the toxic, aggressive and nasty animals we have.
Because in general, we leave the nasty things alone.
We don't play with them
We don't annoy them and we don't hunt them.
