Actually the contestant got it correct!!! But the logic was hilarious. It was a multiple choice - something like Boomerangs, Cockatoos and Goannas. Selected Boomerangs "because they come back from the bush!!!"

that makes a lot of sense - on this side of the ditch we always assumed it was due to how often they come back to where they started from to relocate ;-)

Didn't Biddy post a screen shot of that quiz show question on her fb page about 3 weeks ago?
Ricky, I probably should know this, but does the Aust MTBO team have an official name?
