|Yep, another Aussie export imported to NZ.
These Coots apparently recently transported themselves to New Zealand. It's about 1200 miles to Oz from here (or is it 1200kms?). It's one or the other!!
To be honest I don't think they killed off our Coots - I think the Maori natives must have eaten them all before the white man and the Ozzie coots arrived!!
Poor Aussie has so many NZ imports (in humans) we really don't mind swapping them for their coots.
So don't worry Steve - we are all gonna die but I don't think so just yet!!
Now go to sleep peacefully and don't have any nightmares. . .
