Interesting comment Paul. But where do the deer and pigs come from? And we have a panther here on the central coast of NSW.

I wonder how the rat came to be on Manus since it is a placental mammal and is therefore not originally native to anything south of the Wallace Line that stretches through Indonesia?

Perhaps, along with the Dingo and its cousin, the New Guinea Singing dog, it was brought there by previous, seaborne invaders?

Flannery is working in a noble tradition. I particularly like the horsefly named after Beyonce.
