Australia's natural predators
Australia's natural predators 
A lot of people are afraid of snakes and spiders, and for a very good reason. Australia has some of the most venomous arachnids and reptiles on earth. Venom in animals works as both a protection and a predatory mechanism. If a venomous creature feels threatened it will bite its attacker, rendering them unable to attack. Venomous creatures also use their venom to kill prey so that they can then eat it: this is particularly true for snakes and spiders who eat their prey very slowly.

Swimming in oceans and rivers can be a lot of fun, but there are also unseen dangers that lurk beneath the surface. In our oceans there are hundreds of different species of shark. Most of them will not hurt people but each year dozens of people are attacked by sharks in our oceans. In Northern Australia the saltwater crocodile has been known to attack unsuspecting swimmers, fishermen and even people camping near riverbanks. These monsters of our waterways are both terrifying and fascinating.
