While seeing any wild animal at an airport might sound unheard of, it apparently does happen in Australia, where Emu are notorious for being dangerous and aggressive creatures. Look closely at an emu’s face and it does seem like they’re waiting to mess you up when you least expect it. This emu appears to have waltzed into an airport to check how everyone’s doing today.
Is there some chaos to generate around here? This bird is ready for it. Just look how everyone was evacuated out of there and allowed the large bird to roam free! There’s no disputing which bird rules the roost in this town.
David and Goliath
First of all, what is that abomination? That was our instinctive reaction. And second of all, why is it climbing on that kid? Seriously, is taking a photo more important than the safety of your child? After a little research, we found out that this insect is aptly named the Goliath stick insect and is considered one of the largest species of stick insects in the country.
They are masters of disguise, with numerous ingenious methods of hiding themselves. Goliath stick insects prefer keeping to themselves but are not averse to hissing and throwing their wings open to ward off predators.
Typical Day in Australia
After 68mm of rainfall, all the rivers and lakes were flushed out, meaning all the animals went searching for higher ground where they wouldn't drown. Of course, that meant these cane toads could hitch a ride on a 3.5m python. Just another typical day in Australia it seems. This happened after a particularly violent storm in Kununurra, located in northwestern Australia.
Wildlife in the area scrambled to find safety after a dam’s waters began overflowing. Some people have called this the Outback Uber, which is brilliant. How generous of the python to concede, too. It gives survival of the fittest brand new meaning, and we’re here for it.
We Have AC
Sending your kids to a decent school might seem like an incredibly burdensome task; you have to find out about their priorities, how good the teachers are, and what kind of kids go there. But luckily this school knows what's important. So, you say your school has an engaging curriculum, excellent teachers, and world-class sports and arts facilities. But do you have air conditioning?
That’s the bigger question and a reasonable deal breaker for a place like Australia. At least their parents don't have to worry about their kids overheating or dehydrating while in history class, never mind how good the teachers are.
If you love farm animals, you might enjoy Australia. Imagine waking up and getting some fresh air, only to find a flock of sheep outside your door! Oh, and one wandering cow...They're probably waiting for breakfast and are scared you might forget. But how could you, they've been bleating since 6 in the morning!
Didn’t they tell you that farm life is about waking up before the crack of dawn? You must have missed the memo. G’day and get on it, mate! There’s work to be done. Next time, this lot won’t have a problem marching into the house and right up to the bedroom.
