I've actually never heard of such a spider.

Statically, the most deadly animals in Australia are actually horses and cows haha. 

Yeah big cats and wolves aren't really dangerous anywhere to humans. Even in Africa with all of the Lions, the bigger danger to humans are Hippos. But even then Snakes and insects far surpass any of those.

The top 4 is

1. Mosquitoes 830K human kills last year, avg annual toll is 2 million
2. Humans 400K homicides per year
3. Snakes 81K to 138K per year die from snake bites
4. Dogs 25K deaths (mostly by spreading rabies)

Sharks, avg 4 per year.
Lions, avg 250 per year.
Hippos, avg 500 per year.
Crocodiles, avg 1000 per year.

Stay away from mosquitoes and snakes! (and humans)

I'm surprised snakebites are that high when the death rate here from them is super low despite us having many of the world's most venomous ones.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Asia is the worst, but also has a few more people

While he was charged with "sexual assault with a concrete dildo",  it was all a misunderstanding.
