Tell me about it! I think a lot of tourists come here and expect to see Koalas in every tree and roos bounding across urban pedestrian crossings (not to mention spiders under every toilet seat ). Its not quite like that, although in the outback locals try avoid driving at dawn and dusk as collisions with roos are extremely common. A mature roo can do huge damage to a vehicle not to mention killing the animal, which is much more sad.What is it with the rest of the world and our animals?
I can't say I've had that many male roos flash their bits at me (maybe they find you more appealing, Krin ) but I once witnessed a mating fight by a couple of mature reds. That was pretty awesome, not to mention scary. Don't forget, we also have deadly fish, jellyfish, and most importantly octopus.
Despite all this hideous danger constantly surrounding us, most of us manage to live pretty ordinary lives. After all, spiders, snakes and marsupials don't carry handguns.
