It’s October 1, 1980, in the early morning in Victorian farm country. The sounds of cattle aren't entirely out of place in the area of Rosedale, VIC and one farm hand on the White Acres cattle station decided to investigate a small disturbance to the herd at about 1 am. The tone of the animals was strange, loud and unusual. Something was messing with the herd, causing them distress.

When Europeans landed on the shores of Australia, a world of foreign animals and strange plants greeted their refined, English sensibilities. While the Americas had big cows and the bones of bigger elephants, Australia was home to jumping deer and teddy bears that drop from the trees to rip you apart. It took decades for the "duck-mole" to be discovered - and it took even longer for its strangest feature to be discovered.
