Visit Sunny Australia - where nearly everything can kill you!

It's amazing what you get used to. No matter how many times we spray the mailbox, the redbacks keep coming back. Bit of a lucky dip when you put your hand in the mailbox............

Well, only fatal if they attack en masse, so please excuse the poetic license. However, as the whole nest will attack if provoked (as they can build nests anywhere, this isn't hard to do), the risk is very real....

I was attacked by a feral koala once. It was chasing a possum that was after a wombat. Bloody chaos.
