That's a funny episode.... Then there's the episode where Bart shoots
a bird, and cares for its eggs until they hatch and become lizards
that multiply and replenish and eat all the pigeons...
}This reminds me of the Simpsons...
}It seems like a good idea at a macroscopic level, but when I think about
}it a bit more, it seems like the idea of bringing "alien" animals into
}Australia has generally done more harm than good.
}I haven't studied this subject, but a couple of books I've read in the
}last year have tended to point out that many extinctions in Australian
}wildlife were related to the introduction of foreign species which
}unbalanced the natural habitat.
}Isn't the idea of an African reserve in Australia a very similar mistake
}in the making?
}And on a completely Hollywood level, isn't it all a bit Jurassic Park
}Anyhow, something to think about...
