The reliant beanstalks fed England very well. Their value was without peer. Yet, the routinely ovulation cycles of the rabbits were of immense consequence.

The cute motherfluffers couldn't be eaten quickly enough; escaped their pens, and fell one of the beanstalks. The rabbit revolution littered the royal layout evoking immediate unitary action.

England began to orient itself, as the untimely reconstruction costs delayed the next tourney. A voluntary decision was made to export a penal colony of violent deviants to Australia, and the rabbits in relation.

With a few pregnant heifers, sows, hundreds of water liters, and thirteen bunnies, the syndicates set off.

Disrupting the native environment, the evil unleashed unto Australia wasn't mankind this time, but their hubristic livestock. Like a virulent disease they spread as they began to violate the landscape.

Australia's predators didn't halt their evolution, but propelled it forward. Eventually spawning beasts that should only exist in unreality, the "bunyips."

From box jellyfish to saltwater crocodiles to sawfish, the Aborigines had various evil spirits that claimed the name, let alone the form "bunyip."

Colonizing produced a more visceral, widespread, bunyip that took on many forms.

They struck in famine, destroying the crops and eroding the soil. They spread plagues to the native wildlife, like a tsunamic sea of death. They overate the natural vegetation, causing most of the herbivores to die out, collapsing the carnivores that relied upon them too.

Worst of all, Australia's predators predating upon them caused a subgroup of them to shift from prey to predator, much like the Epomis beetle did to carnivorous amphibians.

Their overconsumption having dwindled the surface vegetation, their food source quickly became aquatic plants and other animals. The easier absorption of meat's nutrients caused their brains to grow larger, adapting better hunting techniques, but it also caused their bodies to grow to larger sizes as well, eventually causing their reproduction to slow down. Giving enough time for the natural environment to bounce back from their previous bunny mayhem, yet still incapable of removing its new alpha predator.

When monsoons strike Australia's lagoons don't be a buffoon and think you're immune. Into the water if you slip, you might be a meal for a bunyip.

Thavien's Token: "This story is crafted in two parts. The first part for Heather Hubler's "'Unscramble' Challenge" is a 154 word microfiction. I hope that the cutoff point adequately suffices for Heather's challenge, as there are 21 words (yes, I know that liter has an extra 's,' so I figured I'd have to have an extra word that would meet for the challenge's qualifications.

Continuing off of "Bountiful Beans Benefit Bankrupt Bellies" I hope that this meets L.C. Schäfer’s “Fucked Up Fairytales - An Unofficial Challenge" qualifications. Does it count as a fairytale? In all honesty I have no idea. L.C. Schäfer will be the judge of that. FAAFO
