Debate has been sparked over the nature of a plank of wood spotted on an iceberg at the South Pole.
Spotted by wildlife watchers south of Commonwealth Bay the solitary piece of timber stands out like a sore thumb, speculation is rife over how it managed to get on to an iceberg in the middle of nowhere so far from civilization.
Wildlife watchers near Aurora Australis' bridge first thought it was a relaxing seal but it was soon apparent it was rectangular in shape. How it got to such a prominent position, instead of just floating around, is anyone's guess.
