forestgump! Well done. :clap: :clap:

To add onto this, from somewhere earlier:

The Hairy-Leaved Monkey-Orange has co-opted Dung Beetles as gardeners!

The pulp of their seeds contains a compound that mimics a compound found in dung. The Dung Beetle smells this, and mistakes this seed for a piece of dung.

They incorporate this in to their dung ball, and go and bury it! Voila, the seed is planted in its own fertiliser!

Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire-proof
Under Oom Boom's radar, down by the sea, yeah

Koedoe, clearly Oom Boom is just trying to soften the blow of his erroneous ways when he indicated that my answer was incorrect. :tongue: :tongue:
