    Could it be the Megascolides, a giant earthworm found in Aus.
     
  2. Not all moles found in Oz live in soil, some can be found after coming home from work on a hot day, relaxing on the lounge with the aircon on full bore finishing the the last of your ice cold Coopers! (joke Joyce).

    I'd go moth/ beetle larvae ...it's pupated, hatched and flown the coop.

    Its probably a little big for a bug of any sort. The hole is a good 7cm wide.

    Your meaning was clear – I just having a joke (= why I only used that line).



    Time for some serious deductive work…


    • a wombat jealous of kangaroos, on a pogo stick;
    • the Ag Dept taking soil samples they forgot to mention;
    • a kangaroo with a broken leg that lost one crutch;
    • someone dropping billiard balls from a plane;
    • Telecom workers two houses away trying to thread a pipe with a kink in it;
    • Hubby trying out the new style sand pegs for the tent he hasn’t told you he bought.

    Not a lot of difference really. One effectively does it for money and the other for free. Either or fits the bill.


    Considered and disgarded. Anything from Russia, ASIO would have been all over like a rash. Besides, the TV crew from "Border Security" would have been there by now.

    Very remiss of me not to fully explain. I should have mentioned the pogo stick and crutch had lost their rubber stoppers, exerting, like the sand peg, a hollow tine effect. Where the hollow metal insert is none too sharp, it would remove a plug of soil without cutting all the grass. The momentum of the billiard balls would provide a high degree of compaction and the balls, of course, would be residing below unless the compacted soil was elastic.

    You always see the seagull at the beach with the missing foot. Maybe it was his peg leg that made the hole.

    But in all seriousness, I've been checking the hole daily and we've only had two periods of activity at the entrance. Both after a rain. I'm still thinking maybe a frog of some sort?

    Does this shed light on any new theories? Lol

    Jesssie Guest

    Ok... Scratch that... Upon closer inspection, I think the frog theory is out... I had a better look today and there seems two be a burrow system leading away from the second hole that has partially caved in from all the rain we got on Wednesday. And it has used that second hole as well this time as oppose to just the first main hole. This is getting frustrating Haha. That second hole looks like it might have been dug from the surface. And its not quite as big as the first one which looks as though it was dug from underneath. I may have to strap a night vision camera to a mouse and send it down there Hahaha.

    It is sounding more and more like a native rodent, such as Mitchell's hopping mouse. They dig an initial shaft down at a angle and throw the dirt out the top. Then a horizontal series of shafts and cavities are created. Vertical shafts are then dug upwards from the various horizontal sections. The original angled shaft is then back-filled with soil. All that might indicate its presenceis a pile of dirt around the filled-in entrance.

    PS. Glad you enjoyed the little injection of humour.
