The “Land Down Under” or the “Land of Nopes”?

 

Australia is a dream-destination for scores of travelers. But most of us, are aware, that the Land Down Under, is not populated, just by friendly natives, koalas and kangaroos. On the contrary. It is a place with a justifiable reputation. Unforgiving natural hazards and both savage and creepy animals and insects that will make you want to scream (or leave Australia all together?).

Today we will focus on the latter. The “nopes” of Australia. And boy are they many! From lizards that should be classified as crocodiles to steroid infused kangaroos. And from exploding whales to massive earthworms.

…enjoy..? I guess…
