Scientists Show Us 11 Scary Creatures Living in Australia
Relax, this brittle star is not dangerous for people, but in some poses it does look like a face crab from horror movies. Some stars have big tentacles and the more of them they have, the scarier they look.
This scary fish doesn’t have a face, only a mouth and nostrils. But it lives so deep in the sea that it doesn’t need eyes anyway. By the way, the last time this fish was caught was in 1873.
The razor sharp teeth and dark eyes of this fish can scare anyone. However, there is no need to be scared — even if you go diving near the Australian shore, you won’t see this fish. It lives from 3000 ft to 8000 ft deep.
Even though this fish is famous for its funny appearance, it’s actually quite unique because it’s endemic to Australia. This means that it lives only in one place in the world. Unfortunately, it’s an endangered species now.
These peaceful-looking creatures will soon conquer the planet — there are more than 10.5 thousand species both in the water and on the land. Another weird fact is that some of them are hardly visible while others are very large.
Aside from the really creepy look, there is nothing scary about earthworms. Their length varies from 0.039 in to 9.8 ft. They are actually very useful for the environment because they can convert soil into humus which improves the fertility of the soil.

No need to worry about the crocodiles. In Australia, the snakes will take care of them.
