We were talking about ways to go fishing last week. There were the usual fishtraps of different types, lines, spearing, poisons, trepang, and so on. My favourite, though, was dynamite. You take a little charge (“just a little one”), and stick it in a reef pool, and it blows all the fish out of the water.
And here’s the news from Darwin. A dog swallowed a cane toad whole. After 40 minutes in “Bella’s” stomach, “Spew” the toad was vomitted up and hopped away unscathed. Aah, north Australia.
