500k up for grabs - 24 Hour Contest (in Contests)
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:
Get to it, this is an easy "Google/whatever other website you know and win!" type of contest!

It's an Echidna

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

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

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 ;)

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!
