Hey Everyone! 😃
Welcome to the 8th Fascinating Friday! I hope Y’All are having an awesome day! I am very excited for today’s post which is about some of the animals in Australia. This country is truly incredible and has some awesome and scary creatures! Viewing some of these amazing photos will show you a few of the reasons why. Are you ready?
Here we go! 🚀
This is a picture of a jellyfish that crashed on the rocky shore and died. Think of how scary it would be to be swimming around with that thing in the water!
Enormous, human-friendly Australian insects! 😱
Terrifying giant crab exploring garbage can! 😱 🦀
Crocodile with Shark in its mouth! 🐊 🦈 😯
Giant lizard on the exterior of a house! 🦎
Man retrieving a sheep on his scooter! 😯 😂
The snakes in Australia are absolutely INSANE!! 🐍
Who wouldn’t want to take home a prize crocodile in the back of their truck? 🐊
Meet the reef stonefish. It lives on reef bottoms camouflaged as a rock and is the most venomous known fish in the world. It can be lethal to humans. 😱
Then there’s the blue-ringed octopus. While it may look cool, it is known to hide out in the Australian tide pools and is also responsible for over 20 recorded deaths. On top of that, there is no known anti-venom for the powerful poison it possesses. Death can occur within two hours of getting stung.
Passengers, onboard a flight from Australia to Papua New Guinea were incredibly shocked to look out their cabin windows and see a 3-meter snake handing off the wing of the plane. ✈️
GIANT EARTHWORM!! 😯
This is the teeny-tiny jellyfish known as the Irukandji jellyfish. Their venom is 100 times as potent as a cobra and 1,000 times as potent as a tarantula. Yeah, not good whatsoever.
Check out this tube-building polychaete worm known as the Christmas Tree Worm that lives in tropical reefs and comes in a variety of bright colours!
WOW! I found some of that kind of terrifying! Australia has some cool, but also CREEPY creatures! Could you imagine coming home to having a lizard that big on your house? Or having a giant crab going through your trash cans? How about seeing one of those enormous worms or accidentally stepping on a blue-ringed octopus? Aah!! FREEKY. Even still, Australia is really cool, and I think it would be really fun to visit!
