Indian Myna

What a pest

Indian Myna

The Indian Myna is another biological pest controller; like the Cane Toad, gone wrong. In Australia the Myna was recently voted the most unpopular feral animal. It competes aggressively with native wildlife for nesting hollows, which are in short supply over much of Australia, largely because of the clearing for agriculture.

The Myna like the Cane Toad and feral cats need to be removed from our continent, because their success means a reduction of our unique and beautiful indigenous fauna. Like so many other environmental issues, unfortunately it’s not on the horizon for the economists & lawyers running this country/planet… if they put just a fraction of what is spent on their lunches, lurks & perks, the extermination of these pests would be accomplished.

Orca Encounter Sea of Cortez

I wonder how we’d all act if we were held captive by Orca’s.

This relates in some ways to my recent series on Dungeons & Dragons. During an adventure/game you might decide in a particular situation to try and bluff it out. Whether or not you are successful depends to a certain extent on a roll of the dice… however; there’s always an ‘however’, if your trying to bluff a huge bad ass Dragon, there’s a good chance your going to get crispyfryed or chomped. These hounds could probably be fooled or Bluffed with a masking spell and a bit of luck with the dice.
