Scary animals that are harmless

Most people view kangaroos and koalas ( Phascolarctos cinereus ) as Australia’s most iconic pets, but this land is also home to some of the world’s deadliest creatures. Did you know? Sharks ( Selachimorpha ) lurk in the continent’s waters (including some lakes), fatally attacking humans more than anywhere else in the world. On land, we can come face to face with extremely poisonous snakes and spiders. And what about the saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus )? In itself it is quite terrifying because it holds the title of being the largest crocodile in the world and the largest reptile on the planet with an average of 70 years of life and a weight of between 400 and 500 kilos as an adult.

Australia also has killer snails and even deadly bees. But can’t you imagine that many of the creepy-looking animals are actually totally harmless? Today we will review a few of this type. You’ll be surprised.

Some of these animals are scary because of their enormous size, while others have sharp teeth or fangs that will scare you. However, all of these animals are mostly harmless to humans, as long as we don’t catch them by surprise. Your alert instinct is as active or more than ours.

There are plenty of lovable crawling, swimming and soaring creatures all over the world, but there are also quite a few creepy-looking rare species lurking in the shadows. We don’t guarantee that you won’t end up having nightmares about them …
