A friend from Hawaii poked fun in his e-mail that "Yes, along with the Kokee Tree Frogs that keep you up in the night, thsoe damn Kangaroo's come down from the mountain, eat our crops, and use our fountain as our toilet."

Kangaroo's in Hawaii?? Is that true??

Well I've been to Hawaii and I didn't see any, but I saw several in Australia (no camels, though). So that proves it, there aren't any.

I notice it's achieved "Nudibranch of the Week" status - go Ceratosoma tenue!

Hawaii seems to be quite careful now about letting introduced animals escape - in Honolulu zoo they were only allowed to have one snake of each species, which had to be male, just in case any escaped. So the Rock Wallabies wouldn't get out these days...

There are lots and lots of camels in Australia - it's largely desert, so when the Afghans brought Camels here they did very well. - Hasn't anybody seen Mad Max 3 - starts with a camel train.

Maybe the Hawaiians took along some Kangaroos when they started cultivating the Australian Macadamia nut - yes its Australian, not Hawaiian natively - so there you go
