Post interesting invasive species from your country.

Post interesting invasive species from your country. Here in Germany we have these parrots which just established themselves a couple of years ago. They seem to be sccessful despite the climate. I saw them near many different citys along the Rhine, so it seems like they've definetly spread and their population is growing. I don't think it's clear how exactly they got here, maybe they're escaped pets or zoo animals or something

    Quite the opposite of an invasive species since they were native here until the 1800s, but the wild turkeys have been doing some damage as they progress up north through new england. I wanna eat one.

    I've seen these dudes in Spain, Germany and South Africa. Seriously how are they able to become invasive to this extent when no other parrot is? There are multiple parrots native to the same area and only this one has managed to spread so far.

        At least one in the Eifel region

        And there was a herd of bennet kangaroos that got released from a pet zoo by "rowdies" some 15 years back. There are probably more, but I knew of the Bennet roos and stumbled upon the Eifel one just yesterday

    i think it was 2007, parrot like that escaped from some balcony in neiborhood, thing was like a fricking ufo, flying at amazing speed among the commieblocks, eating from every tree(im in a balkan shithole c**t theres owergrown bush and orchards everywhere), screaching in decibels, scaring off the pigeons and fighting with the crows
    Then winter came and it froze
    We even tried to figure out how to trap it so it would survive but frick it it died in the cold, was sad
    It was amazing to see the thing free, i never imagined it can fly that fricking fast, it was like some stupid metaphor for freedom or something, a fricking parrot gone feral

    nowdays it wouldnt freeze, the temperatures barely go under zero, funny how things changed in a decade

    another one from Germany are these big amphibious rodents that also started showing up just a couple of years ago, at least in the lakes of the big park area I know them from. They are the biggest rodents I've seen in the wild, I bet they are some of the largest period behind capybara and beavers. They also kinda look like beavers, just with rat tails.
    morons keep feeding them because they look cute, which made them super tame. They'll now come up to people and beg for food. Of course this is bad for the local ecosystem, which is why I think there already are plans about reducing their population

    European wall lizards in North America are pretty cool. There's a population quite close to me so I've been thinking of going over to catch some for my garden when temperatures are warmer.

    Austin, Texas has a huge population of Monk Parakeets -- which look a lot like the birds you posted. They got loose decades ago when a shipment of them to be sold as pets somehow fell off a truck or whatever. They sound very different than north american birds, so when you look and see a bright green bird its very startling. There, too, it freezes at times in winter and yet they survive.

      there are colonies of these guys in many major cities all around the world. they're so prevalent because they're one of the few parrot species that can survive in temperate climates with cold winters. unlike other parrots they build large communal nests to keep warm. so when pet monk parakeets escape they can survive and breed in places where other types of parrot would just die.

    >established themselves a couple of years ago
    They've been there for almost a decade now.
    >I don't think it's clear how exactly they got here
    It is, negligent pet owners released them outside and they survived thanks to the stable high temperatures of urban environments.

      Birds are affected by geographical barriesr like any other animal, the fact that they can live in two distant places doesn't mean that they can survive the travel between them.
      Also birds like the parrots OP posted rely on human infrastructure to survive outside of their natural range.
