We are about to pop out of the mangroves to the beach, but let me digress for a moment to talk about the hidden dangers of the tropical rainforest and sea. A crocodile might bite you. Jelly fish might sting you. A cassowary might kick you. (The Southern Cassowary is the second heaviest bird on earth) A snake might bite you (Coastal Taipan is the third most venomous land snake in the world) And if that is not enough even the plants bite. I say hidden because I saw none of these even though that plant is very common in other parts of Queensland.
