Add to that all the poison spiders and insects I don't see how you guys even manage a picnic.




Thats why farting at BBQ's is encouraged. The smell and low frequency rumblings deter the creepy crawly's.




The low rumble of a diesel actually attracts spiders (fun fact of the day.)

G'Day Fella's,

Despite so many creatures that are full of venom or BIG Teeth, most of us Aussies, managed to survive another year Down Under.
Further to this, I seen a post on Face Book, that shows an image of a Unicorn running along.
The quote with the image was "If the Unicorn was ever discovered in Australia, the tip of the horn on it's head, would highly venomous" or words to that effect. Thats about right ...........

Luckily, we can escape across the ditch to New Zealand, for a break from all this Poison and Teeth.
I think they may have one mildly poisonous spider ......... but thats about the extent of it over there (apart from Spear Grass= Ouch, Ouch, Ouch and bloody Sand Flies !)

D'oh!

So does a Basilisk - no wait, the Basilisk scares them away. Yipppeeeee!
But then, the Basilisk has a poisonous bite too. No wining is there.

Not nice at all!

I see one of the main descriptions of it is by Pliny the Elder, who came to an inglorious end whilst rescuing people during the eponymous Plinian eruption of Mt Vesuvius, which destroyed Herculaneum and Pompeii. The eruption of which was well described by Pliny the Younger, the Elders nephew.

Unfortunately people donít study history well and millions of people are in peril of the next Plinian eruption of Mt Vesuvius, which will most likely significantly affect Naples and its surrounds.

THAT could easily have ended poorly.

The main cause of blue ringed octopus bite is picking up the octopus and letting it dry out. It becomes stressed and bites. I've caught lots in days gone by, just released them back into the water. not exclusive to rock pools, I have caught them on the edge of a lake, near where I live now.
