Doesn’t this look interesting?
At first I thought it was lobster. But upon further inspection, it looks a little different. Go ahead and look at it again.
It is a crayfish. Now where I live, crayfish are like large shrimp and people along the coast really enjoy their crayfish boils. Growing up I heard them called “crawdads.”
Where this one was enjoyed, one can find the largest and smallest crayfish in the world. I am going to give you a few clues to figure out the country in question.
- It is said that this country is one of the oldest countries on the planet, as well as one of the newest. Capiche?
- The citizens of this country have a unique colloquial language coined ‘strine’ by linguist Alastair Morrison.
- Although the landmass comprises nearly 3 million square miles, most human inhabitants live within 50 km of the coastline.
- Since 1945 more than 6 million people around the world have moved there.
- The development of penicillin for medicinal use is attributed to three people, among them a Noble laureate from the country in question.
- Popular foods in this country, so I have read, include Weet-Bix, Iced VoVo, Barbequed Snags, Pavlova, Tim Tams, and Vegemite.
