Wow, just saw that superbird dive, that was awesome, and the speed it had trawling the bottom for fish!!

Oh, and don't talk down on Paddington Josh, that's uncalled for!! lol!

haha. He rocked.

That bird vid was pretty awesome alright. Man it went down there, and down there, and down there. And stayed down there, and stayed down there some more. Was pretty amazing watching it cruise around like that.

Pffff I wish I hadn't listened to that track of the couple being attacked by a bear. doh

Very disturbing. I hope it is a fake record, hoax, not an authentic record.

If it is not, please let me stay ignorant.


Oh, I love that diving bird. I wonder does she swim with her legs or simply fly with her wings under water?
The bird generates quite some speed under water.

It's snakes alive in Florida. Becoming quite a problem these pet Pythons that have been let go. Looks like they're there to stay now.

Yeah, the Burmese Pythons are now well established in Florida. I'm surprised that the US doesn't have tighter regulations on people keeping / breeding potentially invassive species privately. I read somewhere that it has been etsimated that there are more of these snakes living 'wild' in Florida, than there are in their native habitat (rather like the situation with ferral camels in Australia).
