Everybody knows Australia is home to some of the coolest wildlife on the planet. However, that doesn’t mean you want to get up-close and personal with any of the animals here.

Koala

These adorable guys look cute as buttons, don’t they? They’re also insanely vicious when they feel threatened and the males have a horrible tendency of violently violating the females. Not so cute and cuddly now, huh?

Kangaroo

It’s all fun and games until you get kicked by a kangaroo. Seriously, these guys can pack a wallop and leave you severely injured if you get on their bad side. They’re wild animals, so it doesn’t take much.

Funnel Web Spider

Some people have a fascination with spiders. We’re not sure why, but they do. This is one you definitely don’t want to mess with. The funnel web spider has enough venom to kill a human before he can even make it to the hospital.

Eastern Brown Snake

Snake lovers are right up there with spider lovers in terms of strangeness. Just don’t try to wrangle this one, or you might lose a limb.

Bull Shark

Everyone seems to be afraid of Great Whites ever since Jaws came out, but it’s the bull shark you need to watch out for. These guys are known for their vicious nature and won’t hesitate to make you a snack given the chance.

Platypus

This poor guy is often the butt of many jokes thanks to his silly, but cute, appearance. If he gets his venomous stinger near you there won’t be much to joke about. They won’t kill you, but the pain is almost unbearable.

Swissgear 1900 ScanSmart Backpack

Among the myriad concerns the everyday traveler may have when approaching any trip, safety and security are most likely the most important, but protecting yourself from both bodily harm and petty theft can distract you from the real reason for your travel: to escape daily life and immerse yourself in another culture. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in travel accessories that can perform multiple functions, like carrying your gear while also protecting it with state-of-the-art security features.

Under $100: Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles is a sunny city with beautiful beaches. One could argue L.A. is the “New York of the West,” as the city is culturally diverse and has a strong financial and cultural influence on the country as a whole. It is also a much-sought-after destination among travelers for its beaches and the fame associated with the city.
