    Hey Tone's,

    OZ is pretty rough and tumble, but everybody seems pretty chill.

    What would it take to be be banned form Aus? (out of Oceana)
    What would it take for a time-out? (sent to New Guinea)
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Good question delll, heres a list off the top of my head.

    Blue ring octopus, deadly
    Snakes, taipan, death adder, browns, tiger, most common deadly ones
    deadly jelly fish, very painfull
    Bees and european wasps
    Sharks, whites, bull and tigers
    Crocs, we have the recorded biggest in the world.
    Spiders, funnel web, red back and mouse
    Tics can kill long term in people allergic
    Cone shells, deadly
    stonefish deadly ,the most painfull
    Stingrays, if your unlucky enough, just ask steve irwin. and very painfull

    All of these baring a croc and coneshell are within 1km from where i live in sydney.

    Id say Bees would kill the most through allergic reactions

    Ferrets are the most mischievous little bastages I have even had the displeasure of living with. They'd sneak up on us and bite our feet then run away "laughing" in there own way. They would also fall asleep in an underwear dresser drawer or in the broiler. Pains in the azzes they are!

    Mini pigs are cool though. Very smart. They'll fetch sticks like a dog. In fact, they are very much like a dog.

    First of all limpa, i talk about bikes on here all the time, im from coast to coast like butter on toast.
    secondly, i dont spend all day on here, but i happen to be able to work 12 hours a week and make well above the average wage, and be lucky enough to own real estate that give me more income, so im lucky enough to be in a position that im no slave to the grind, im a man of leisure mate..
    Thirdly, biking is a very small part of my life, i came to this forum to talk bikes but found a great bunch of guys here and thats whats kept me here, not the bikes, talking about bikes all the time is pretty boring if you ask me.

    cheers limpa

    AFAIK, the Americas host the deadliest bees (killer bees) - Africanized honeybees.
    Regular bees/wasps can surely kill people if they are allergic, but they are something that is a total non-issue IMO.
    What say you?
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    ok, i might be wrong on this, but i thought many people died every year as a result of being allergic to bee stings, and we also have the european wasp here which can be deadly..
    Im probably wrong then delll.......that could be a first

    Those who are allergic to bee stings should have Epi-pins at there disposal at all times. Anaphylactic shock is a horrible way to die.

    An allergic reaction is not because of the animal - normally an bee, hornet, etc is just an irritant - but not lethal.

    Killer bees attack hive-wide and kill that way

    What's up with the wasp? why are they deadly?

    sorry delll, i misjudged your original question and included allergic reactions, i'll have to do a bit of research to answer your questions regarding what animal of thing causes the most deaths in oz, i'll get back to you.

    As an Aussie I often laugh at the preconceptions others have of all the things that will kill you here. While there is plenty of animals that could kill you, the facts are way less interesting than the myths. No-one has died from a spider bite here in 40 years, snakes kill on average less than 2 people a year, blue ringed octopus only 3 recorded deaths ever, stonefish only one recorded death ever, cone shells have never recorded a death.

    I lived in Cairns (far north Queensland) for a few years, and crocodiles are a genuine concern as are jellyfish, you take a risk every time you go in the water. As for pure fear factor though, I think sharks have to be up there. There are beaches and rivers here around Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast teeming with them.

    Ah-haaa! You didn't mention the King Brown!!!

    Could this be a clue that having one as a pet wouldn't be so dangerous after all? You know where I can get one?
