the others you can just wrap in some tin foil and eat

Yum... I love the crunchy legs

We live in the suburbs but can often make do with spiders and the odd snake, freshly caught in the backyard, nicely done on the barbie. Cuts the food bill by half!

Cockroaches dipped in chocolate are lovely too!



Beli is right about the temperature effect. Stick to the bottom half of the continent and you should be right mate.

Ah, spiders.

Do you think we just let anyone into the country?

Australia, Home to:

The only poisonous mammal in the world - The platypus
The top ten most deadly snakes in the the world - Here they are!
Sharks - Big MOFO's that will eat you.
The box Jelly Fish - Deadly
Sea Snakes - Poisonous
Spiders - Lots of nasty ones, especially the Funnel Web and Red Back (though if you get to hospital quickly enough you won't die).
There's a shell that if you stand on it, it can kill you.
The Blue ringed octopus - beautiful but deadly
Some spikey fish - forgotten name but they are the same
Antechinious - a nasty little marsupial mouse which has the most powerful bite for its size and can break the bones in you fingers if it latches on.
Crocodiles - big ones.
Gonna's - lizards that when frightened will run up you (they have claws like a bear....)
And lots of interesting insects





But chances are you will get run over by a bus before you have to wrestle any of these.










When are you coming?

I have lived in both country and city Australia in Queensland, and the spiders aren't that bad where I have been. I would be more worried about the snakes if I was you, they are a lot worse and there are a lot more poisenous species in Australia.
Snakes and I don't get on

...eewwwww. No offense, whatever tastes good to you, but...yeah. I think I'll skip that dish.

Boy, I would love to visit Australia, but with all that stuff there...(heh, snakes, eh? Better not bring my sister along, then...).

Wow.

Neither did I . You really do learn something new every day.
