When it comes to animals that can kill you, Australia is in a league of its own. Australia is home to many of the most dangerous creatures on the planet including snakes, spiders, sharks, crocodiles and jellyfish. If you are unlucky enough to get bitten, eaten or stung by one of these animals you could be dead within minutes.
It is however rare for this to happen and for many of these creatures in the list below there are very good treatments available.
Australia is one of the most diverse and beautiful places on Earth and a huge part of what makes it so interesting is its fauna.
