The origins of road cones.

Road cones have been seen in Christchurch for a very long time. No one knows when they first appeared, however there are no known sightings of them before European settlement.
The natural habitat of the road cone is dry, gravely soil. They tend to be social and prefer to live in large colonies, however solitary cones are not uncommon.
The road cone's main predator is believed to be the UC student. In Christchurch, after the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, the number of predators declined. The amount of dry, sandy and gravely soils increased, leading to an explosion of the road cone population.
