With the Wet season soon upon us, it's inevitable there'll be power outages during storms. How do you keep yourself entertained during these intermissions to your lifestyle? Simple. Venture outside while it's still wet and collect Cane Toads. Then stack them on top of each other. It will keep you and the kids amused for a least 30 minutes. Here's our instruction video on how to perform this tropical treat.
These gorgeous dogs look like perfect models, but according to amateur photographer Manuela Kulpa it can take up to 80 goes to capture one image. But we reckon it's worth it. How happy do these dogs look as they prepare to catch a treat?
