Hey guys, just a lil bit of clarification. I was holding onto the tree to get a good look at the blue tongue (which was over half a metre long). We're not normally afraid of her, she's come into our house (which I'll put a picture of in my profile). It's just that that day I was too near her hidey hole so she chased me. I was in the tree havin a little stare-down with her when I must have moved a little too high up because this possum comes out of no where right up into my face. Scared the shit out of me so I fuckin legged it inside. I'm also 16 so I don't have a heap of options about where I live lol

I don't think that Lizard was chasing you to hard if it wouldn't go up a tree to get you.....
There is absolutely no chance an Australian animal has rabies since rabies doesn't exist in Australia. Furthermore, blue tongues are docile harmless creatures; I have seen many had had them living in my garden and never had an issue. If OP was chased by a blue tongue, then he/she was probably harassing it and fully deserved the reaction. Possums, on the other hand, I wouldn't mess with. They have very sharp claws.
Unless you're being forced to live in Australia I'm not sure why this is an FML... You did know what you were getting into. Just be grateful it's not one of those spiders that are the size of your face that chased you up a tree.
