  1. Please don't read your text!
    You have a good prononciation, but we can still see your eyes looking away from the camera.
    From a subscriber that love your content!

  2. This, boys and girls, is why we shouldn't be messing with nature. In all seriousness though, we humans should be at top of that list.

  3. Gorse from the UK has taken over (that is, nothing else growing) LARGE areas of New Zealand.  Australia has them bad too, but not as much as N.Z.
    English/Scottish Broom (also from the Fabaceae Family) is bad too (not sure if that one is worse in N.Z. or Aus).

    Would've been good if you could've shown views on either side of one of Australia's rabbit-proof-fences (they are very high, and go a long way underground) – on one side you see lush pasture, on the other desert.

    It seems whenever we move a species from its natural habitat to some new one, it over-thrives and becomes a pest.  I blame women's-magazines-gardening and parents giving in to kids' wanting pets that they later get sick of and discard.

    The other problem is that some Politically-Correct "Greenies" (usually 'watermelons' – green on the outside, red on the inside) block us being able to have native animals as pets.  This is certainly the case in Australia.  The only argument I've seen them give is that "it is inappropriate".  (That's Ideology – not common sense.)

  4. Do you want to know about invasive species?, look for Australia on google ha ha ha, there you have an isolated country in that a lot of species have become a pest, some of the cases have been rats, dogs, and even nopals a plant native of mexico that here are used as food… among other thousan uses.

  5. Just so you know, the "Asian carp" that you have listed is a common carp. Silver and big headed carps are quite distinct. 

  6. $138 billion per year to fight bamboo shoots?! i thought it was too much so …. 
    as it turns out the US government does spend $138 billion per year to fight all non indigenous species including both plants and animals. Some 50,000  foreign species and the number is increasing. So i think what you said was misleading!. reference: http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/1999/01/environmental-and-economic-costs-associated-non-indigenous-species

  7. This is messed up I just don't understand why we have to kill them they will eventually die on there own God made animals so they could reproduce when l these invasive animals become extinct we're going to be sry and begging God to bring them back

  8. Keep in mind Zoosus is an alien outer space invasive species zoombee that has cause catastrophic havoc and zoo rotten zoocieties on this fragile ecosystem Earth!

  9. Funny how you never specifically addressed humans, yet you brought up their invasive behavior. And hell, your background is another great instance.

  10. A big problem with the invasive species debate is that only certain kinds of plants or insects are targeted.  The European honeybee is an invasive species under many definitions–it outcompetes native pollinators such as the bumble bee. Despite clear scientific evidence for its invasive quality, we keep honeybees and they produce honey and pollinate crops.  And you never hear any invasive species people complaining about Apis Melifera. In the same way, I’ve seen Poison Ivy routinely listed on “invasive species” lists, despite the fact that poison ivy is a native plant filling and important role in the ecosystem.  Wolves suffer a similar fate–wolves are native, but we’ve done our best to eradicate them in the ecosystem because they prey upon farmer’s herds. What counts as an invasive, then, depends on whether it aligns with economic interests and how convenient or inconvenient it is for humanity.

  11. Here's some Hip Hop from the perspective of the invasive species:

  12. Three more besides the rabbit and cane toad that are special problems in Australia – the world’s most ancient and least geologically unrepresentative extant continent:

    1) Foxes (Vulpes vulpes) were brought to Australia to engage in fox-hunting of – ironically – rabbits. Instead, foxes took to killing off the medium-sized marsupials of Australia, so much so that they play as large a role as human interference in giving Australia the worst record of mammal extinctions. Foxes have even invaded Tasmania where they pose a threat to species already virtually extinct on the mainland, and also pose a threat to unique primitive birds like the malleefowl and plains-wanderer.
    2) Rubber vine (Cryptostegia grandiflora) was introduced from southwest Madagascar as an ornamental plant when central Queensland was settled in the 1860s by miners. Unfortunately rubber vine is perfectly suited to the extremely erratic rainfall and runoff of Central Queensland. Indeed rubber vine cannot exist on reliable rainfall because it needs radically different annual totals to grow well and to seed well. Consequently, rubber vine has spread all over the semi-arid tropics of Queensland and is spreading to the Northern Territory. Like the cane toad, rubber vine is very poisonous – ten grams can kill a 400 kilogram horse and no native vertebrate is known to eat it successfully – but native vertebrates in Australia are much more aware of rubber vine’s noxiousness than they are with the cane toad.
    3) Feral pigs (Sus scrofa) were introduced as livestock but many have escaped and gone wild in most parts of Australia. Feral pigs are most common and damaging however in the relatively well-watered north. They damage land by their digging and heavy hooves (they have four complete toes vis-à-vis the two found in cattle and sheep). They are a major threat to small terrestrial marsupials and to ground-nesting birds, and are also a very important vector for the spread of dieback fungus that threatens native eucalyptus vegetation. Besides their ecological impact, feral pigs are also a threat to farming in Australia as they eat vegetable and fruit crops.

  13. You know what’s sad? Invasive garfish killed all the Karp in China and invasive Karp fish killed the water habitat in America. How… fucking weird.

  14. Wait a minute aren't we invasive species we kill the animal home and and we are on every continent and there are 7 billion people on earth like if you agree your opinion not mine 👍😜👨👩👴👵👶👨👶👴👶👩👶👴👶👩👶👴👶👩👶👩👶👴👵👴👶👴👶👴👶👴👩👶👩👵👴👶👨👱👮👮👱👮👮👱👲👱👳👳👷👸🤴👸🤴👸👼🤵🤵👰🤶🎅🕵️👰👼👸👳👸👩👸👶👳🤵👩👵👷🤵👴👶👳👸👶👳👳⛑️👳🤵⛑️👳👸👳👸👳👸👳👸👳👸👳👸👳🤵👳👸👳🤵👳👰👳🤶👨🤶👩🤶👩👳🎅👩🎅👩🤶👩🤶👩🤶👩🤶👩🤶🎅👩👳🎅👳👷👲👷👳👷👲👷👳👩🎅👩🎅👩🎅👶👶👵👴⛑️👶👱👱👱👱👶👶 that's how much of us in a block

  15. The despcription: “Invasive species are seen all over the globe, and some of them seem almost unstoppable”
    That perfectly describes humans.

  16. We have no right to point the finger at any species on this topic, the hypocrisy is just too much to stomach

  17. Smh…u didn't even show one picture of an Asian carp and only got one fact about them correct, that they can jump 10 feet in the air.
