Environmentally Friendly Lawnmower Invented

 

Updated : May 11, 2009


British gardeners are increasingly buying wallabies as pets to trim their lawns.

Private orders for the marsupials have jumped in recent years as landowners seek new ways of keeping their grass neat, reports The Times.

Wallaby enthusiasts say the animal is a cuter, friendlier and more exotic alternative than sheep.

A pair of wallabies are not cheap, with males costing £150 and females around £650, in addition to food and bedding costs.

But Waveney Wildlife, Britain's biggest private supplier, reports a doubling in wallaby orders in five years, driven by growing interest from individuals.

Trevor Lay, who runs the centre in Bungay, Suffolk, now sells 35 a year and says he could find homes for three times as many.

"It's crazy. To be honest, if I had 100 I could easily get rid of them," he said.

Quintin Spratt, a breeder from near Diss in Norfolk, also told the newspaper that he had received a surge of inquiries from would-be owners.

Anyone looking to keep a wallaby should have enough land for them to roam, half an acre, and fences at least 5ft high to ensure they cannot jump for freedom.

VeryHappyPig says why not employ a Pig- we could eat and fertilise your grass at the same time!
