No you're right, LBF, I'm sorry if I came off the wrong way. I certainly would take the next flight to Aus if I could, the creepie crawlies wouldn't stop me. I'm sorry for perpetuating the myths. My cousin lives there now, actually, and she also confirmed what you said. Again, I'm sorry.
I guess moose kill more people in Newfoundland than any other mammal or living thing on the entire island. They're big, intimidating, they chase you down and they're quick!
Ugh, big moths and face fliers freak me out too. My co-worker was telling me how one of those large moths was resting on the chair at work and she didn't see it- but she touched it to move the chair and it fluttered in a panic on her hand- I laughed my ass off laughing.
