Eucalyptus grove.

Given how well eucalyptus trees grow in Southern California, I expect that Jerry Brown is paying specially close attention to this development.

But knowing how crazy everything is Down Under, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if this only happens on Oz.

Where, incidentally, even some of the eucalyptus trees are venomous. The ones that aren't harbor drop bears.

Seals are harboured; drop bears require more substantial support.

Steve: Are you allowed to hunt drop bears in Australia?

Michael Lonie said...

No Paco, drop bears hunt you.

Steve, is there anything in Oz that isn't venomous?

Australian song to attract the tourists.

See, the trees here grow upside down.

I came upon an Eastern Brown Snake a few days ago. I was barefoot and he was inches away. But I like their temperament - he reared at me like a cobra (the do that I've found) but then politely moved over for me to pass.
"The eastern brown snake is considered to be the second most venomous terrestrial snake."

I'd met this guy before and he's always polite, I consider him a friend!

Bruce: You move in some dangerous company!
