59 Pictures That Will Show You Why Australia is so Unique
If you’re planning a vacation in the near future and are considering the-land-down-under as one of your possible destinations, you might first want to get the number of a good exterminator. If you think this is some kind of a joke, you’ve obviously never visited Australia. This beautiful country is home to some of the scariest and deadliest creatures in existence. So, if you have decided to visit this country and see all the beauty it has to offer, be prepared for all kinds of surprising creatures. Is that Dracula?
It’s no secret that Australia is the home of many species of giant bats, but this one must be the biggest bad boy on the block. He looks like he could be Count Dracula himself, or at least one of his descendants. Wouldn’t it be nice to take a picture with this real-life vampire in bat form? Or would that be too creepy?
Everyone loves a good sale
Imagine if you’re out shopping, minding your own business and this fellow decides to slither across the aisles as if it was no big deal. Well, it also doesn’t seem like a big deal to these people who captured the snake without a blink of an eye.
Maybe you should stay away from the waters
Boats are one of the primary modes of transportation in Australia, but maybe not one of the most glamorous ones. Here you can see a swarm of beetles that have taken control of the main sail and it doesn’t seem like they’re planning to leave any time soon.
A nice game of golf
If you’re golfing in Australia and for some reason, you can’t get that hole-in-one, maybe you should take a look at the hole. Just, don’t put your hand in there before looking, because you never know if something is curled up inside. Something like this would probably ruin everyone’s afternoon game.
Now, that’s terrifying
If you’re wondering what that is, it’s a giant jellyfish, and no, it’s not photoshoped. Maybe it doesn’t look so scary since it died when it crashed on the rocks, but for a while it was swimming in the Australian waters. It is a relief seeing it outside of water where it can’t hurt anyone, but you never know if there are more of them out there.
They’re probably too friendly
In most parts of the world, a dog is a man’s best friend. However, it looks like insects have taken that role in Australia, at least when it comes to this guy here. They may look people-friendly, but not many would dare and be this friendly with such huge insects.
What exactly is this?
It’s a bit hard to identify what this creature is: it looks like a giant crab, but it also may be a massive tarantula. It’s not so easy to put a finger on it. Whatever it is, it’s truly terrifying and probably the best exterminators would have trouble dealing with it.
You can’t miss it!
If you’ve ever wondered what’s one of the largest Australian creatures, that would be the saltwater crocodile. Here, you can see a group of tourists on an organized tour that managed to snap a picture of the giant creature. Still, it’s probably not too strange for Australia, where you can probably always expect the unexpected.
A perfectly normal picture
A lot of bizarre pictures are taken in Australia, but this one might be one of the strangest ones. Here, you can see an ostrich looking quite curiously at the camera, a lama who seems to be enjoying some attention and a collared sheep, accompanied by two humans. That is without doubt one crazy gathering.
Everyone has to eat something
Sharks are always in jeopardy in Australia, there’s no denying that. Everyone is scared of them and so they are constantly hunted. This dog was probably excited when he saw the carcass, as it was obviously a ready meal. It’s still disturbing to look at, so be careful not to stumble on something similar while walking on the beach.
