The only thing funnier than humans getting drunk, embarrassing thenselves is this breed of Australian parrots displaying classic drunken behaviour during the wet months. The cause for their lack of coordination, falling of tress and other bizzare behaviour patterns is most likely a berry but some scientists suspect that a virus might have a part of play in this.

Can you imagine thousands of tiniest penguins on the planet marching from the sea to land in something known as 'Penguine Parade'? Well, your imagination is Philip Island's reality. At about 30 cms, the 'Fairy Penguins' are the smallest of their kind. The creatures' eyes are extremely sensitive to light and hence all forms of photography is prohibited, making this phenomenon one for which you actually need to be present to witness.
