290km (approx)

On the drive back to Sydney this afternoon, we decided to (quite macabrely) keep a tally of the number of dead animals we saw on the side of the road. There seemed to be an awful lot on the way down and I wanted to quantify that.

Bird: 5
Kangaroo: 7
Wombat: 1
Fox: 4
Echidna: 1
Bunny/Possum: 3
Unidentifiable (ewww): 19

Very grim. 

We were travelling at speed, so you’d have to figure that we probably missed spotting a bunch more. And there were at least that many on the way down – definitely more kangaroos.

Dangerous place, the country.
