Yes, we do have a lot of venomous snakes and many are killers. There is also a particularly nasty spider called the Funnel Web spider. That one is definitely a killer unless treated. They are also very aggressive if confronted.
We also have a variety of snake that is frequently seen around the state and national capital cities. They will bore you to death with their inane chatter. This one is called the politician snake. Very common in certain areas.
