You don't need to worry much about anti-virus software for you Mac.

There has never been a single virus released in the wild that effects Mac OS X so no anti-virus is really needed.

Of course, it is theoretically possible that a Mac could get a virus but I've been been using Macs for 20 years and have NEVER gotten a virus.
