Yes, we here in Oz do have things which will kill you......but show me the country which doesn't.

I have lived in Oz all of my (long-ish) life and only seen one snake in our garden, the year we first moved here - 2010 - it was a brown snake, one of the deadliest, although a young one. It moved quicker than we did, let me tell you. We are careful not to leave footwear outside overnight, as that could be asking for a bitten toe in the morning; some spiders do like a nice cosy shoe.

On our various visits to Canada we have lost count of the number of folk who have said to us "we would love to go to Australia, but you have things which will kill you" which we have replied "well - you have bears which aren't always friendly, and moose which can kill you on the road too! And those big whales, orcas....."

Here's a song for you, Steve......Redback on the toilet seat
