From the picture in your report Keith it looks like you have referred to Wikipedia for some info.

No doubt you saw the reference to the French derriere: Lodoicea callipyge Comm. ex J. St.-Hil., in which callipyge is from Greek words meaning 'beautiful buttocks' which helped with your suggested Tok Pisin renaming.

Now if we thought the 'drop bears' were bad elsewhere, just imagine living in the Seychelles? 30kg. Hmmm....

Keith thankyou for this informative and amusing read. I thought late Charles Gordon was right about asfrut considering the local legends account. ahahwh!
