Whether you’ve visited Australia or not, there’s a good chance that you have an image of what it’s like in your mind – and that image is likely full of two things.
Animals that are adorable (like koalas and kangaroos), and all the rest of the wildlife, which is actively trying to kill you.

Ponds are fair game for everyone.
