Even if you could would you come to Australia

I stumbled upon this little travel article after researching a spider that I saw and lost in my room.

When all this Covid stuff is gone, come to Australia.:spider:

are you serious? is there actually no way to save him?

Lol! There is antivenom, he’ll be fine.

My boss was bitten by a spider last year actually and was in hospital for a week.

Yeah Texas looks a fair bit like Australia. Also other arid parts of the US does too.

Rattlesnakes are a joke compared to how venomous our snakes are though.

We have the inland taipan. It’s venom is so deadly, that if you are bitten by it death is certain because it kills you before you can get to the hospital for antivenom. One bite is enough to kill many adults.

It’s a dozey shy thing though. It generally stays away from people.

Rattlesnakes will hold a grudge. Maybe not as venomous, but Damn aggressive.

Sounds a bit like our tiger snakes. They even attack slow passing cars.

have you seen a dangerous spider before? and how big do they get there?

I hate spiders to the point of phobia. I like How Rediculas. Always wanted to see Australia and would not mind living there.

By the way, this was on my porch. Have killed several in my garage.

I find dangerous spiders I my house regularly. Red backs and white tails. They are fairly small.

Spiders terrify me! My mom actually got bitten by a black widow once. She was sick for a while but she got better.

Black widows are nasty! They are a very close relative to our redback spider.
