70% of all boats sold are used for fishing.

We have over 6000 species of flies, about 4000 species of ants, and there are about 350 species of termites in Australia.

The combined mass of all termites in the world is more than ten times the mass of all people.

Termites are also called white ants, but they're not ants, in fact not even closely related to ants.

Australia has the world's largest population of wild camels with one hump.

The shark one is absolutely wrong

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/703082.stm

Sharks do suffer from disease and cancers, its a myth. And as a result millions of sharks are killed yearly due to the thinking that products made from shark bits cure cancer, boost immune systems etc.

Shark fin soup is the prime example, and to watch asian fishermen land a shark , hack the fins off and then throw the living shark back overboard makes me want to weep.

The rest are interesting though :-)

Thanks Dutchy :thumb:

I'm no great fan of sharks and bitey things but to to chop the arms and legs off any creature and leave it a quad amputee would create a howl of cruelty from the masses but because its a shark nobody seems to give a shyte. :mad:

I'd love to chop the feet and hands off of the fisherman ................. but seems I'm not allowed :cry:

Sorry for the rant and hijack of your thread ............... but I just couldn't let that one go to the keeper :)

Cheers
