We do have an unreasonable number of Redback spiders this year.
Uhhh... Redback spiders...
I saw someone compare them to black widows on some nature show. He actually handeled them both by hand. As far as I remember, then it was this Coyote Peterson that have this show, and you can find the episode on youtube. Those two spiders are so identical in so many ways, and what makes one of them more dangerous, are not how venomous they are, rather more how agressive one of them are in general. More or less equally deadly if one eventually gets bitten.
Here in Denmark, we do not have such things. Well... We have one of the most venomous spiders in the world, looking at the venom alone, yet it's fangs are so small that it can not penetrate anything else than flies. So. Not dangerous. The most dangerous animal we have, are our only venom-snake. Yet it's venom are no more dangerous than that of a vespidae (I think it is what people call yellowback or something) The most dangerous we have are the plant called deadly night shadow. Three berries, and an adult will drop dead without help. One berry, and a child drop dead. Else nothing here are dangerous. No big cats, no moose, no bear, no nothing. Danish nature is boring.
Wolfs have come back though.... Yet they tend to have ran away for a long time, before we stupid clumpsy danes, come marching through nature. One can say that they are too shy to be at any risk to humans here. We have tons of resources for them, lots of deer and such, and it rains a lot so they will always be able to find food and water.
Don't eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.
Those cakes make you sick....
