The visit was a learning opportunity for the Enrich students. Mr.Esler talked about possums, rabbits, Maori villages and lots more. These were significant in the Oreti Beach and Sandy Point areas.
My favourite part was the talk about… THE POSSUMS!!!
Apparently our possums only have one baby and there is one in 1000 chance for twins.
The European possums almost always has 8 babies!
Now onto more disgusting matters……
It has such a disgusting smell I can’t express it, so I made a little image for you:
About 1 in 30 people can’t smell Ambergris.
It is from the whale intestines and is used for perfume. It is worth a lot of money!
Well I hope you have enjoyed this.
