In Australia we have a lot of spiders, which is unfortunate becuase I don't really like them. Also something that is unfortunate, is that a few of them can kill you. Now, I know no one has died from a red back spider bite for a while now, but if you don't want to risk it, here is a picture, i want you to burn it into your memory! Don't touch them!
I must impress upon you, that even though it is often overcast and cloudy here, YOU WILL GET SUNBURN!!
Especially all you white, fair, blone and red haried europeans! We have a hole in the ozone layer right above Australia. Please make sure you put on a hat, a shirt and suncream.
I promise you, (from experience) it is not nice being hot and red all night and you can't have a warm shower coz it hurts, and then you peel.. oh it is yucky, then you get SKIN CANCER!
Take my word for it!!
Possum feeding is good fun, but if you're not carefull some of them may try to climb all over you and their claws are sharp! Ouch.
