The Cassowary (Casuarias casuarias), one of Australia’s most beautiful and deadly animals.

No, pretty much the opposite. [Here’s a map of Australia’s population distribution](http://home.iprimus.com.au/foo7/pop2g.jpg) — virtually everyone lives on the green temperate coasts. [Here’s a map of the most popular snake families’ distribution in Australia](http://i.imgur.com/LFuTb4u.jpg) which is almost the inverse; the deadly animals and the people live in completely separate areas. The desert interior of Australia is home to most of them and it’s also one of the least-populated areas of the world (Perth, WA, on the other side of the outback, is the most isolated city in the world). Here’s [Western Taipan distribution](http://www.qm.qld.gov.au/Find+out+about/Animals+of+Queensland/Reptiles/Snakes/Common+and+dangerous+species/~/media/Images/Find%20out%20about/Animals/Reptiles/Snakes/Common%20and%20dangerous%20species/oxyuranus-microlepidotus-map.jpg).

Here’s a fun list of Australian animal fatalities in the last 25 years (my lifetime):
Snakes: 10
Spiders: 0
Dingos: 1
Sharks: 31
Irukandji: 1
Box: 3
Crocodiles: 10

Australia actually has significantly below-average wildlife fatality. The ocean-going fatalities seem high, until you take into account that 82-91% of people (depending on state) live within 32 miles of the beach; when you compare Australian statistics to per-capita statistics for California and Florida coastal areas they’re about the same.

It’s all blown up by internet memes and hyped-up reality shows.
