Quoted from gonzo73:
My favorite ridiculous animal in the Playerpuss, but Im terrified of visiting Australia, because I grew up watching Mad Max, the Earthling, Road Games, Picknick at Hanging Rock, on the beach, and Walkabout. In everyone of these films people travel into the country and horrible shit happens.
Jesus! in Walkabout the Father tries to gun down his kids, then blows his brains out. And this is in the first 4 minutes.
The Shire looks much more relaxing.
Don't forget about the drop bears, flying kangaroos, and very large cow snatching saltwater crocodiles
p.s. the last one is the actual tourist killer, maybe cos crocs are more placid where they come from?
The Platypus, verging on extinct... a mammal that lays eggs!... if you see one in the wild buy a lottery ticket! They are really very cute!
Also like snakes, they won't hurt you anyway, if you don't surprise them by sticking your finger up their bum or whatever. lol
