* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Textile_cone.JPG Cone Shell]] The reason why many kids don't go swimming without proper foot wear. The stinger has the ability to pierce through a thick layer protective clothing. Its stinger is also used like a freaking harpoon! There is ''no antivenin''.[[note]]And even if there ''were'' one, they wouldn't be able to administer it fast enough anyway.[[/note]]

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tasdevil_large.jpg Tasmanian Devil.]] Made famous by the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes character of the same name, but the fictional one bears no relation save the name and prodigious noise they make. As their name suggests, restricted to the island of Tasmania. The current population is threatened by [[BodyHorror Devil facial tumour disease]], essentially a contagious cancer.

As their name suggests, restricted to the island of Tasmania. The current population is threatened by [[BodyHorror Devil facial tumour disease]], essentially a contagious cancer.cancer which spreads due to the fact that Devils bite each others faces when fighting one another. They are however developing a resistance to it as a few individuals have been discovered that have at least a partial immunity to the disease.

* Indian mynah birds - brown feathers, yellow beaks. Aggressively territorial, these birds drive native birds out of their habitats by ganging up and chasing them. Distinct from Noisy Mynahs, which are grey, native, and a little calmer in disposition.

**** Look at some of the above examples (especially in the Insects and Reptiles category) and think about this a minute. . . someone managed to find an invasive species too poisonous ''[[UpToEleven for Australia!]]''

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sepia_apama The Australian Giant Cuttlefish]]: Reaches up to 50 cm in mantle length and weighing as much as 10.5 kg. Found in southern coastal waters from Brisbane to Shark Bay. Won't hurt you unless you're a small fish or crustacean. They're also masters of camouflage and colour change (more impressive when you consider that they're colourblind!).

Added DiffLines:

** Unlike most of the introduced/feral species on this list, Camels manage to fulfill an environmental niche without severely upsetting the native species. They tend to eat plants that native species won't touch and their soft-padded feet makes soil erosion less likely (Unlike the Brumbies below). It has even been suggested that they could be a replacement for the herbivorous megafauna that used to exist in Australia before they went extinct. However, their biggest issue is the fact that there isn't a naturally occurring predator to keep populations in check, hence the need for culling.
