Did you know that the Box Jellyfish is regarded by many as the world's most deadly creature? Or that the Taipan carries enough venom to kill 12,000 guinea pigs?
It will hardly come as a surprise to most Australians to learn that we live in a land with more than its fair share of venomous creatures. Our country is host to the funnel-web, most deadly of all spiders, and many snakes that outstrip the cobra and rattlesnake in terms of venom toxicity.
'Dangerous Australians' will answer all your questions about venomous and equally dangers non-venomous wildlife. Every creature from those likely to cause only mild discomfort, to those that threaten life and limb, has been covered. This is the kind of inside information that no Australian can afford to live without.
