Australian bat lyssavirus (ABLV) is closely related to rabies virus. ABLV was detected in a bat found in the Melbourne suburb of Kew in July 2011. The discovery prompted health authorities to issue warnings to Melbourne residents not to touch the creatures.
ABLV was confirmed in two horses on Queensland's Darling Downs in May 2013. Both horses were euthanased when their condition deteriorated despite treatment and the attending veterinarian performed a post mortem examination obtaining samples that allowed for the laboratory diagnosis. The property was then quarantined. Three dogs and the four horses in closest contact received post exposure prophylaxis as did all nine in-contact people. The virus was isolated and identified as the insectivorous bat strain. These cases have prompted reconsideration of the potential spillover of ABLV into domestic animal species. Veterinarians are urged to consider ABLV as a differential diagnosis in cases of progressive generalized neurological disease.

There have been three confirmed cases of ABLV in humans, all of them fatal.
They also carry Hendra virus, which is lethal to horses, Nipah virus, and Menangle virus.
I stand corrected. Maybe only the fruit bats of South and Central America are free of these viruses.

They would be a different breed I guess.

Anyway there are bags of them around here if you would like some TM.

The worst case - 2 young urban naive locals used & abused

Nearly 16 years after the deaths of two teenage boys in the searing heat of the Gibson Desert - one having resorted to blowing his brains out with a rifle - their ordeal still haunts Australians.

It has been a long, hard road for Les and Sandra Annetts, whose son James, as a 16-year-old Griffith schoolboy, responded to an advertisement for jackaroos in the Kimberley in 1986 and left home for an adventure.

Many species of bats eat insects such as mosquitoes. A bat can eat its weight in mosquitoes each night. Unfortunately, bats have gone extinct in some areas with dire consequences for the humans attempting to live there.

We've got five fruit trees in our yard and we leave about a quarter of each tree free of netting so the bats can get to the fruit at night and Rosellas and White Cockies during the day. Doesn't take them long to strip their share of the tree bare.

Kevin here. I have just been reading, that unlike in America, Australia has no native cactus plants. They do have two species of "succulents", shrubs that resemble cacti, but they are not cacti. The land in many parts of Australia is actually ideal for growing cacti (cacti require arid land like many of the desert areas in the U.S.). There is however a fantastic cactus garden called :Cactus Country a 10 acre area that has over 3,000 species of cactus three hours north of Melbourne in a small country town called Strathmerton.

Cactus Country is owned by an American by the name of Jim Hall and he has been operating the garden for the last 25 years. Just about 10,000 visitors come to Cactus Country each year. I can't upload any photos because the website is protected. I was just wondering if any of the Australian members of VEF have ever visited Cactus Country and what do you think of it?

I wouldn't have a fucking clue but come to think of it the few times I've been to our deserts I don't think I recall seeing them either way if they're not native here you wouldn't go noticing stuff that ain't there

Many of the cactus plants in Cactus Country are almost 25 feet high. The park has a representative number of real cactus plants that an American wandering the deserts of the U.S would see. Here are some photos of the park I got from the internet. As you can see there are small trails that take visitors to the various plots of different kinds of cacti:

Default Probably through an ancient episode of Landliine' or the equivelant.

I don't know but I was told Queensland had a big problem with 'Prickly Pear', some time ago.

I just noticed on another link that it's another introduced pest.
