Goliath bird eating spider is biggest in the world is from Brazil not Australia I know Australia has huntsman spider but the most dangerous spider in the world is the Brazilian wandering spider I know they have the Sydney funnel spider which roams in largest city in Australia so I guess it's because the spiders in Aussie live large cities while in Brazil it mainly in Amazon when no one lives.

I don't think we really do.

Maybe it's more expected in Brazil to be dangerous wildlife (everyone expects dangerous snakes spiders insects jaguar etc in the amazon) and overall it is a dangerous county in perception and reality.Australia is known for dangerous animals also but maybe they like to remind us about it more often.

Default Ah, to be in Oz again, now that spring has sprung in most of the West

Because the dangerous critters in Aussie had Rupert Murdoch's PR team on their side?

Their fabulous See Sydney & die ad campaign?

Spiders aren't a big issue in Australia.

Drop bears on the other hand...

Yes, they come around semi regularly when conditions are right.

PETA made headlines in Australia last week for suggesting that the mice shouldn't be killed, rather caught and released. And that killing them would be further evidence of "human supremacy".

That's right - there shouldn't be any human supremacy over nasty rodents or insects...
Such thinking is not politically correct ...lol
Rodents should not be denied their “right” to food because of the “dangerous notion of human supremacy”. They should be caught gently and released unharmed PETA suggested.

Thankfully, the comments caused Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack to see red.
“The real rats in this whole plague are the people who come out with bloody stupid ideas like this,” he said.“
Their thinking around this is reprehensible, when you have farmers struggling.
“You have these people who have never left the city and wouldn’t know if their backside was on fire, then all of a sudden they’re telling farmers what to do?
“The only good mouse is a dead mouse.”

Because Australia has more links with other developed countries, and more international migrants and students . So other countries people may know Australia more.
