500k up for grabs - 24 Hour Contest (in Contests)

QBOddBird December 3 2007 4:12 PM EST

This Contest ends approximately 24 hours from now.

I need the weirdest pictures of animals from Australia. I would like a link to the website they came from.

No photoshopped animals. Real animals.

If you find a website about a bug that can roll up and look like a cow turd, AWESOME. That'll be great.
If you find one of the 500+ species of kangaroo that looks just too cool/cute, AWESOME. That'll be great too.

The top three get these prizes:

1st: 250k.
2nd: 150k.
3rd: 100k.

Get to it, this is an easy "Google/whatever other website you know and win!" type of contest!

Not really a Kangaroo, but cute nonetheless: Sugar Gliders

AdminG Beee December 3 2007 4:39 PM EST

Heh, this animal will even take the photographs for you :)

It's an Echidna btw.

AdminG Beee December 3 2007 4:43 PM EST

Of course, you could always go for a Sea-oala bear type thingy...

Weird Australian animal...

IndependenZ December 4 2007 4:55 PM EST

I have never read anything about multiple entries, so here's a few more:

Grey kangaroo with young

Another mother and child!

You must have heard of the tree kangaroo by now... but he remains cute!

Koala's are cute too

But a baby sloth is the cutest Aussie animal ever!

G_Beee just one 1st, 2nd, and third. No questions asked, rofl. The sloth, the Gibson? Hysterical.

Stupid thing didn't post my picture.. sorry.

QBOddBird December 5 2007 1:09 AM EST

Sorry Calynne, the contest ended Dec. 4th...

I will make my choices and hand out prizes tomorrow, when I get a chance to let my dialup suck it up and download all these pictures. ;'D

[LittleRed]Calynne December 5 2007 2:17 AM EST

Oh, I'm sorry. Next time, then. :)

SCORPIOUS December 5 2007 1:22 PM EST

Just so you know IndependenZ,but a sloth is NOT an australian animal

RichardRahl{Kill Gun} December 6 2007 11:10 AM EST

hahaha this is cooler

IndependenZ December 8 2007 6:27 AM EST

It's not? Oh.. I found it under 'Aussie animal' though. Ah well, at least he looks cute. And what do I know, lol, I have never been outside of Europe ;)

Talion December 12 2007 11:19 AM EST

So, who won this contest?

The tiny little hedgehog was CUTE.

The albino kangaroo was very unique!

But my decision was....

1st! ---- Blobfish. He is definitely the freakiest of the bunch. I've seen him before, but I never realized he was Australian! Money coming your way, whoever posted that.

2nd! ---- Sugar Gliders. Fell in love with them, and now I must have one as a pet. <3 Money coming your way soon, Shade.

3rd! ---- Must go to the platypus, as the spare parts of the animal world. Money coming your way soon!

Sorry I got to this late, and thanks for reminding me about it!
