Australia’s Amazing Insects in Photos

Australia is known for it’s gorgeous beaches, the expansive outback, and warm people. But even more than that, Australia’s also known for some of the weirdest insects out there. And yes, a spider isn’t technically an insect… but ewww… it was so creepy we just had to include the photo.

  2. The bee and the Harlequin bug are really pretty. Are jumping spiders non-poisonous in Australia? We have them here and I’m rather fond of them, actually. I had one on my desk near the computer for a long time. My ex-MIL, who was from Korea, said they were good luck and they ate the harmful bugs that would kill her plants.

    We have a tarantula, too.

  4. Australia has this way of being beautiful and scary all at once… and it shows in these bug pictures. Now, I imagine, if I encountered any of them in person I would probably do a girlie scream that would make me lose major feminist cred and faint dead away. Yet I still would LOVE to visit Australia in person some day and test that theory.
