Demon ducks of doom!!


Palaeontologists from the Uni of NSW recently found the remains of huge birds (reportedly related to "water foul" [sic]) they're calling "the demon ducks of doom". Hahaha. How cool is that?

Of course, other creatures - killer kangaroos!! - are getting the headlines. But that's just silly. Demon ducks are better.

Anyway, just between you and me, I've always been a bit wary of kangaroos:
