Gallery of the day (Australian edition)

I'd include a picture of a dropbear but no one has successfully photoed one yet.

You know, the thing that always annoyed the hell out of me about crypto-zoology is not the fact that some people are searching for these implausible and/or silly things (they can do whatever they want in their free time after all), but the ridiculous amount of media circus they make out of it.
