No crocs in Tasmania, no mysterious aboriginals, either. We have a few
people of aboriginal descent, but with most of them you wouldn't know
unless they chose to tell you! Critters - yes! We have platypus in the
river and native hens in the paddocks, cockatoos and kookaburras in the
trees and wallabies and devils in the bush. Oh, and possums, ringies and
brushies, potaroos and bandicoots and such. Nothing really exotic, though. 

Tasmania is cool and green; supposed to be a bit like England. I wouldn't
know, since I've never been to the UK. 

BTW, if you get transferred to Tasmania, come and call on us! I can't keep
up with you and Jacob IQ-wise, but we could always talk DWJ!
