    I suppose if the Insurance wants to be a bit nit picky, they may notice (unless I'm mistaken) that the "Kangaroo" they show a pic of is in fact a rock Wallaby.
    Bloody weird just the same.

    Hahah, at last we've succeeded in introducing a species of animal to Europe after all those pests the English brought with them to Australia

    Nah mate, that's aussie conservation policy- let it be a pest in someone else's backyard. That way if it becomes rare where it belongs it can be repatriated.

    pity they don't take them ALL back.

    Top find! Geez I wonder what the repurcussions from introducing this new species will be in decades to come? Maybe it will be nothing more than an extra food source for other toothy critters in the forest.

    Maybe we can send some Redback spiders, funnelwebs & a few snakes to give them a real taste of Australiana

    The poor bloody thing was obviously confused. It was just sitting there waiting for the car to move back to the correct side of the road and pass, before it continued across.

    Farmer Dave,

    We have a few surplus possums over here. I note they aren't native to NZ. Would you like a few (more) million?

    I'll pass, but the hippies down the road say they would happily take then as the fur is worth $25 a kilo and plucking it with their machine beats working . Can't say I blame them really because it makes good socks.

    In regard to the original comment, I'm referring to a small (ratty) wallaby of some sort that was introduced to a certain island over here and became a pest; when the time came to get rid of it it was found to be endangered back at home and a number were re-exported.

    As if we don't have enough Kiwis living in Aus! Did they rent a flat in Bondi for them to live in?

    Neither do the French (IIRC) but they do have mousse in a bowl.
