An Unnatural History of Australian Fauna and Flora
Australia is renowned for having many strange and exotic plants, animals, birds and insects. Alternative Science is constantly on the look-out for new living creatures which may be found here.

As new species are discovered, I shall attempt to faithfully record them for posterity, and to exhibit them on this page. Trust me, I am an artist.

Please scroll down to inspect the specimens.

(Further images will be added from time to time as such creations come to light.)

The Bundaberg Strangler captures its victims with its tendrils and holds them firmly in place. Then the petals enclose the victims before slowly dissolving them with powerful acidic juices. The lucky victims are those which are strangled to death before being dissolved.

When the Tender Tosserwary was first introduced to Australia from England in 1812 by Governor Macquarie, it was welcomed as a domesticated addition to the food supply of the early colonists. Its meat was sweet and delicate.

However, several Tosserwaries escaped into the wild and greatly increased in numbers. Today, there are many who consider the Tosserwary to be a back-stabbing pest.

The Black Swan is a native of Western Australia, and it has since migrated to the East Coast.

The eccentric behaviour of some Black Swans in Sydney's Centennial Park was first noticed in 1929, shortly after the Australian tour of Anna Pavlova's Ballet Company.

There is also a white dessert named after Madame Pavlova, and there is still a dispute on whether it was invented by an Australian or a New Zealander.
