Photo Shows 'Seven Native Australian Animals' Together In One Garden
| Last updated
Australia is known for its diverse abundance of majestic wildlife. But while you might expect to find them dotted across the country's vast landscapes, one Aussie found a handful in a tiny patch of garden.
In the photo, an Australian green tree frog can be seen munching on a Carpentaria snake. That's the centrepiece.
Meanwhile, a deadly little redback spider can be seen hanging about above. But Facebook users spotted more camouflage creatures in the photo.
Lower down, there's what appears to be a wolf spider loitering under a leaf. Another said they could see a snail hiding among twigs and bark to the right hand side - though their eyes must be better than mine.
A couple of isopods (a kind of crustacean that includes the likes of woodlice) were also spotted, while another thought they'd found an eighth creature in the form of a stick insect - though they later conceded it was just 'dead grass'.
The exact number of species in the photo is unclear then, but one person claimed: "As a true blue Aussie I can see 12 things in this photo that could kill me."
Many others commented on the sheer Aussieness of the snap.
One person said: "'Straya' all in one shot.. legendary lol."
Another added: "This is the most Aussie backyard ever."
A third commented: "This is one of the most Australian things I've seen."
True enough, it is a very Aussie sight, but the most Australian thing you've ever seen?
Clearly, you haven't seen that bloke punch a kangaroo.
Or more recently, that guy who caught a cricket ball in his beer. The legend was at Hobart's Bellerive Oval during the Big Bash League match between the Melbourne Stars and Hurricanes in January.
English batsman Dawid Malan whacked a six in the 16th over and a kid tried his best to grab it.
As the camera zoomed in on the catcher, it soon became apparent that the boy missed his moment. But fear not, beer bloke was there to make the catch.
To celebrate the incredible moment, the man downed the drink and the crowd went wild.
People naturally loved it on social media too, with one person writing: "XXXX couldn't have dreamed of such a good ad."
Another added: "I can't believe how Aussie that is."
