Bigfoot is a bigwuss compared to your box jellyfish, inland taipan, cone shells, blue ringed octopus, etc., etc., etc.

Yeah, I see them occasionally on mountain bike rides. They ARE very cool - and very dangerous. Pretty heavy duty neurotoxic venom. Years ago a friend of mine was bitten by a little guy about 8" long (yes, he was trying to catch it ). Within 15 minutes his vision blurred and his lips started tingling. After 2-3 days in ICU he was released.

Maybe it's just me, but those sound like they could be some pretty nasty STDs.

Re: Only in the land of Oz...

We've got hungry mountain lions here. Joggers seem to be their favorite dish.

Another great site to visit.
