I guess it would make all kinds of sense if I were some enviro-wako-lizard lover.
But I'm not.

I wonder What Steve Irwin would think about getting closer to your pet Goannas by feeding them your lastborns placenta?

BRISBANE, Australia Sep 25, 2006 (AP)— An Australian man who says "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin shaped his love for reptiles said Tuesday he plans to feed the placenta from his newborn son to his pet goannas to bring the family closer to lizards.

Wil Kemp, a reptile keeper at Rockhampton Zoo in northeastern Queensland state, said his second son was born on Sept. 5, the day after Irwin was killed by a stingray attack while filming on the Great Barrier Reef.

Kemp and his fiance Kahila Pepper gave the boy the first and second names Tai and Irwin the former after the taipan snake and the latter after the television star and conservationist.

Kemp said the couple planned to feed the placenta to their three pet goannas, which live in pits in the family's backyard, after a homecoming gathering on Sunday.

Of COURSE they're in OZ, I don't think even our dingbats would go that far.
