Catch of the day: Lungfish rescued from hotel carpark (or the story of one lucky fish)

We are having very heavy rain (again) in this area and Gympie has flooded for the 4th time in 12mths - all sorts of things get caught in the flood - even rare fish!!

This story appeared in this mornings newspaper with the picture!!


Just as we think we have seen everything!!

    Lungfish may look scarey; emus are scarey. 1 kick: DOA.

Thanks for the taste of Oceania.

One of my favorite parts of SP: folks from all over the world: AU, NZ, Guam, and probably a lot more than I have yet to sample.

Are emus eaten as are ostriches? :-|

    Yes I actually saw this story on the news tonight channel 7 here in Brisbane. Quite amazing! The weather here of late with all the rain etc... is awful.

Though I guess where I live I am lucky to be up fairly high so we don't get flooded.

I have had enough of the rain it can go now. emoticon

Take care emoticon

    What an amazing story. That's one big fish. I really
feel for the people of Gympie and around the Mary
River as well as the Burnett region. I just heard that it
will get lighter by Sunday, but there is another trough
on its way. I hope you are OK were you are. We are
expecting a very high tide and I wonder if there will be
any sand left on our beaches. Let's hope it eases up.
