These cute animals watch us go by on our way to the beach. The mama cow (you can tell because she has a propane tank for an udder!) has a 'spot' that looks like the north island. The little critter on the pole is a possum (ugly, imported thing that eats native birds and plants). I'm guessing the male of the house wanted the pig mailbox--bacon is considered a necessity here in NZ!

Australian possums were introduced to NZ for food and fur. Since there are no native mammals in NZ, they had no predators and have since become a huge problem.
