More..


European Scorpion....last count 1000 in kent (2001)

European Pond Terrapin

This species was brought into the UK as a pet and often released into the wild by owners as it grew larger. They will breed in the UK during a warm summer and it appears that there is now a self sustaining population in the wild. There are no proven problems from this species but little research has been carried out on their impact. This species was originally a UK native around 8,000 years ago.


Sand Lizard


Raft Spider...Biggest spider in europe


Ring Necked Parakeet

Last count 5000...southern England...and seen often in London


Signal Crayfish

will add to this soon

Big Cats??



There are several species of these non-indigenous cats living and breeding in the British Isles. The three largest members of this group are, BLACK LEOPARD, PUMA and LYNX.


Global distribution of Black Leopard


Global distribution of the Puma minus the UK

Lynx
Range: British Isles. Northern Asia, eastern Europe Spain and northern Scandinavia. The Canadian Lynx is found throughout Canada and parts of the US.

Attacks
Over the years, there are purported to have been nine verified attacks by big cats on human beings. The most recent attack, and most publicised was the attack, this year in Wales on Josh. Whilst playing in woods, he saw a black fury tail under a bush. He jumped round the bush thinking it was his own pet cat. It wasn’t. He was promptly confronted by a somewhat shocked Black Leopard. Fortunately for Josh the cat had no intent to kill. The cat reared up and swiped Joshs face. The claws of the cat were partly sheathed, and the swipe was more like the cat would give one of its cubs to disciplin it.

Sightings
Sightings in the year 2005 include:
Eastbourne, Glasgow, Shropshire, Enfield, Cumbria and Edinburgh.

Sightings in the year 2004 include:
Northumberland, Berwickshire, South Cumbria, Doncaster, Lincolnshire, Huddersfield, Sussex, Gwynedd, Worcestershire, Renfrewshire, Yorkshire, York, Selby, Rossshire, Black isles, Gloucestershire, Auldgirth, Norfolk, Telford, Norwich, St Mawgan, South Wales, Fife, St Fergus and Mid Wales.

Why have they never found any panther tracks/turds/dead bodies with all these sightings? I remember there were several near Telford round where I live a couple of years ago but nothing has ever been proven, I think some people have overactive imaginations.

Taken Selby, North Yorkshire

Keep in mind that there are no native animals with this footprint.


Taken in Battle Woods, Hastings

Over the years there have been cats killed :-
1989 - In Shropshire a Jungle Cat was fatally injured in a road crash
1988 - In Devon a Leopard Cat was shot
1988 - In Hampshire a Swamp Cat was killed crossing a road
1987 - On the Isle of Wight a Leopard Cat was shot

Other evidence:

No native animal is capable of this:
http://www.ukbigcats.co.uk/bigcatkills.asp

At least 4 leapards have been shot in the uK [2 in the Scottish Borders]:


Photograph taken in Kent:


This Leopard escaped in 2001 and has not been recovered:


Taken in Ulster:


The skull of a leopard found on Bodmin Moore:
