This shouldn’t be here…

To the bottom right of this image you can see a giant shrimp. The problem with this is that we are miles from the ocean and a good ten minute drive from the nearest river. 

How does it end up on a dirt road surrounded by pumpkin paddocks and sugar cane?


This isn’t the first time I have encountered something this strange. A few weeks back a coworker spotted a fish in the paddock as he was about to pick up a pumpkin. It couldn’t have been there for too long as it wasn’t too decayed. His confused face was a picture, the reactions were even better on the trailer from the packers. We placed the fish on the conveyor belt to be placed in a bin as we do with pumpkins, watching the guys about to pick it up before realising what it was was hilarious. 

Are birds picking them up and dropping them? Some of these fields have also flooded in the past, I don’t know if the floods were so bad that fish could swim from nearby rivers up here and get stranded once the waters subside, but it’s another possibility. 

Anyone know the reason or experienced this for themselves? 

Very strange!

  1. Sam – I think your bird theory is very plausible. I had heard from a friend about the rain of fish in South America. Known as the Lluvia de Peces or “Rain of Fish,” it is said to occur at least once and sometimes twice in a year in the small town of Yoro: during a massive rain storm, hundreds of small silver fish supposedly rain from the sky onto the streets of the small town. Maybe it was a weather thing? -Jill
