A familiar list from a non-familiar magazine

Today, Time magazine published a list of the Top 10 invasive species throughout the United States.

In spite of the radically different ecology of the US and Australia, there are some remarkable similarities between the two lists. I have coloured brown those species which have become pests in Australia:

  1. Asian Carp
  2. European Rabbit
  3. Cane Toad
  4. Kudzu
  5. Grey Squirrel
  6. Killer Bee
  7. Starling
  8. Northern Snakehead
  9. Zebra Mussel
  10. Burmese Python
