Am putting off the housework by watching a documentary on venomous creatures. They're talking about Australia's reputation of dangerous animals and how that reputation is enhanced by our snakes. In the list of most toxic snakes, the top 12 all live in Oz. That makes me feel oddly proud.

Hmmm, maybe I should do a snake handler's course the next time they run one at work.

ETA: And apparently, in Tasmania you can die from an ant bite. (Jumper ant, to be precise.) And don't forget - the male platypus has venomous stingers behind his hind legs that can cause a person intense pain for months.

How on earth did the early settlers survive long enough to breed???
