Nothing like that happens in bloody freezing Melbourne either. Those crocs haven't survived from the dinosaur era because they're dumb, it's only us idiot hoomans who decide to live in the frozen tundra of Victoria. So all the backpacker-devouring is thousands of kilometres away, which leaves us Melburnians more time to contemplate the footy, cricket and beer....by the way we do have some wicked emmets here, big bastards caled "bullants" which are almost indestructible and can get real aggro.... also fireants, but again, like the canetoad and box jellyfish, they content themselves with living in the beaut climate of Queensland and Northern Territory.

So, they're venomous, slimy and unpleasant to encounter .....

Enjoy your emmet-free period then, we're just coming into ours, although the "attractions" in this area which draw the coach-loads are Fairy Penguins, and Giant Gippsland Earthworms which average 1 metre long, but can reach 8 metres ( I kid you not ).

You must be able to catch big fish with worms that size!

Yeah, well I don't think they've invented a hook big enough to thread the
bloody thing on yet....

I wouldn't have thought you'd have needed a hook. I mean, if I was swimming
in the sea when one of those buggers got in with me I'd sure as hell get out.
So, all you'd need is a few buckets to catch the fish in!

thanks for all that mate, I only wanted to find out what an emmet was but I've enjoyed chatting. Last but not least, and the subject has probably been done to death on your site already, but did those two blokes ever get that big wine cask balloon thingo airborne again or what? And why????

No, they didn't, adding yet another entry to Roll of Dishonour of glorious British failures.
