Australia it’s known for its diversity of animals, not only the cute ones we know like kangaroos and koalas, but also some quite dangerous ones that will make you yell ‘nope’.
When you really see what this land hold, it looks like the most dangerous country in the world. From enormously big spiders to venomous snakes, crocodiles, octopuses, and disgustingly overgrown earthworms, the Great Southern Land seems to have it all when it comes to nightmare fuel and creepy crawlies.
Below is a collection of these species that will creep you out, making you stay away from Australia forever.
#1 Roofhanger. Suspended Grey Headed Flying Fox, A Megabat Native To Australia
Batwing is fine and dandy. He dried off and flew away as soon as it was nighttime. He was not sick, just wet.

#3 Believe It Or Not, This Is One Of The Least Dangerous Spiders We Have In Australia
This is the huntsman spider, a common friend to be found in houses and garden across Australia. He’s harmless really, don’t let his large size intimidate you. Huntsmen won’t bite humans unless provoked, are not venomous and are actually handy to have around the place, he’ll use his speed and agility to keep your cockroach population under control.
Think of the huntsman as a handy pet. Respect his space, let him do his job and he’ll look after you well.
