I don’t mind the feeling of bugs crawling on me.

I can just tell you’re not Australian!
Makes sense, if you lived down here you’d probably be a little more wary considering bugs the size of your thumbnail can easily kill you here. lol
Yeah, the likelihood of me ever running into a bug that would leave more than an annoying, itchy welt are basically zero. Stay safe down there!
But everything in Australia wants to kill you.
Nah, realistically you mostly have to be scared of the really tiny stuff. Redbacks, white tails, funnel webs.
The biggest thing you’ll see that’s actually dangerous is a brown snake (which get fucking huge, but they are harmless.) you just gotta watch out for where you walk in long grass!
Also you’d probably have a bad time if you fell on an echidna but i’d actually be super impressed if somebody managed to do that.
We have about 32 animal related deaths a year on average, however a majority of those deaths are related to horses/cows/dogs and local animals make up a much smaller percentage.
here’s my source if you’re interested! https://www.ncis.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/NCIS-fact-sheet-Animal-related-deaths.pdf
I was just making a funny. Thanks for the in-depth response, though. BTW, I love your country!
I know you were joking ahaha!! Just like to provide info where i can!! it’s a pretty great place. :)
As a fellow Wisconsin resident.
I enjoy letting bugs crawl on me as long as I can see them.
