There are so many different places across the world that it's normal to expect differences from place to place. Take Canada, for example. Sure, they're right above us, but it can get pretty cold when you go really far north, not to mention the fact that they barely have any deadly spiders and snakes up there.
Here in America, however, we've got all kinds of fun stuff, like rattlesnakes, black widows, and all of those other scary things. We've even got alligators and Florida!
Somewhere that makes America looks like child's play, however, is Australia. Have you ever seen the kind of stuff down there? I've never felt so good about being so far from a place. I mean, there's a reason everyone lives on the coast of that place.
