I have been through my extensive photographic collection and found a photograph I was able to take back in 2003. It is of a longdonkey.
Longdonkeys are often seen in the Northwest of Australia but are not often recognised. This is because they always face any observer.
I was able to capture this image by setting up my camera on a tripod and operating it remotely. Unfortunately it was raining at the time so the light was poor. It is such a bad photograph that I have never before shown it in public. The importance of the longhorse debate has led me to show this image.
Longdonkeys are not native to Australia. In fact the original imported pair came from the Central Asian Steppes. More precisely, at the risk of being a bore, at Kazakhstan. Their owner brought them to Australia in 1870 as he thought they could assist in the newly developing outback. Unfortunately they escaped and have since bred into a series of large herds which live on the fringes of the Australian deserts.
Their flesh is extremely stringy and so is not suitable as a pizza topping.
I believe raincoaster is attempting to put together an expedition to track down the longdonkey in its native habitat.
