Your storys have made us smile, a great read.
We have Large grey Kangaroo's ,Deer, Dingo's,Fox and Goanna in our horse padock beside our house , you will see any of these at any time. Were only 15min from the beach but still in a rural setting. While my OH was out slashing the horse paddock he came across a funny site, a Crow was trying to drag an Goanna backwards through the long grass by his tail. Only problem is the goanna was about a metre long and the only thing getting dragged along was the Crow. In the end the Goanna was crawling off with his tail over his head to keep the crow from grabbing it. There is always some thing to see.
My OH said he would worry about the bear's, he watched" the great out door's" a John Candy movie.
