Australia is an undeniably beautiful land of extremes. From modern city nightlife spots to the rugged countryside, there’s something for everyone.

The country is also well known for a rich diversity of species and a home to thousands of animals, giant or small.

However, there’s a scary aspect of Australia that’s pretty damn terrifying, especially to vacationers and non-natives.

You’ve even probably heard that nearly everything in Australia is trying to kill you.

Apart from the cool kangaroos and cute koalas, people in Australia frequently encounter many dangerous and creepy creatures that sometimes show up in odd places. And would scare anyone unsuspecting or unprepared.

Though it’s among the most wondrous countries worldwide, once you see these pictures, you might want to reconsider your visit.
