The dinghy brought us to the reef and after half an hour I was too tired so I decided to swim back through the open water back to the boat instead of waiting for the tender to pick me up. While swimming, I noticed a shadow around me the whole time but I thought that it was a school of fish in the dark water.
When I got out of the water and took my Stinger suit off I saw that it was a 10 foot 3 meters Tiger Shark. Tiger sharks are the most dangerous of all sharks in Australia.

They can ofter grow over 16 foot in length and can often be seen close to coasts. In the last 50 years 11 people died at a shark attack in Australian waters. Under the water you can find a lot of deadly animals in Australia. One of the deadliest is the Box Jellyfish. On his account go more deadly incidents than from Sharks, Snakes and Crocodiles together.
Since about 70 deaths have been recorded due to jellyfishes. During stinger season December to May especially in northern Australia it is mandatory to wear stinger suits when going swimming. People who had an encounter with a box jellyfish say that it feels more like an electrical shock than a burn. In an area in central Australia where a lot of travelers and tourists will not go you can find the Inland Taipan.
The snake which can reach a length of 8. While driving from the Uluru to Adelaide I stopped at the side of the road for a break and found an Inland Taipan next to my car. I decided that it was better to take a break somewhere else!

If you drive around Northern Queensland and Northern Territories you will most likely see some creeks and lakes with signs warning you of crocodiles. While wandering around Magnetic Island, which is famous for the koala population on the island, I spotted a Saltwater Crocodile sunbathing on a sand bank. Magnetic Island is not known for being a residence for crocodiles. But Salties have even been spotted in Brisbane.
Found in nearly all Australia, the Red back Spiders can easily kill a human. While living in the city center of Brisbane I encountered many of these black spiders with their name giving red dot on their back. A friend of mine was bitten by one while playing with the children in the garden but a quick ride to the hospital can easily safe somebody from death.
If you believe it or not but Cone shells can be pretty painful. When walking around the beach be careful picking them up, they sting you by pushing their tail out. They are to a certain degree poisonous. If you go camping at Fraser Island you will definitely encounter Dingos.
When hiking through the bush I was followed by two Dingos. When camping with infants take good care of them, on Fraser Island some children have been killed by them in the past.
Mostly spotted off the coast of South Australia but also on the east and west coast of Australia the Great White Shark is also one of the most dangerous animals in Oz. The last recorded great white shark attack was in February of this year when a Diver was killed by 2 great white sharks. If you like to dive be careful of the Blue Ring Octopus. It is one of the most toxic sea creatures in Australia and as small as a golf ball. Until today no antidote has been found for the powerful venom of this octopus.
In his distinctive Australian accent, he tells it like it is.
