30/04/2009 (Day 3.120) - Drop Bear
I am tolerant of most Australian wildlife. We can live with roaches and ants in the kitchen, spiders in the shed, and snakes in the living-room. Even leeches and ticks in the bush. But drop bears are downright nasty, and I hate them. Having to be constantly on your guard when passing under any tree, in case one attacks, is very wearing indeed. And the worse thing? We're really not supposed to tell outsiders about them in case they frighten the tourists away. How bad is that?
Anyway, this site tells you more than you would ever want to know about Australia's least known danger.
A year ago today I was on the road.
And this is my 6000th picture on Flickr.
