Thanks for all the challenges you have sent. Here is what we are going to try to do :
- We are going to jump into the coldest water in Australia in Lake St. Clair, Australia’s deepest lake
Name 10 wombats
Photo evidence of patting an animal (we have missed a couple of photo opportunities already with echidnas and pademelons
10 Tassie devils might be hard – but we’ll see what we can do
Find twenty plants
Earlier on this week in Tasmania we saw little penguins. Tasmania has been my favourite state so far because it has lots of wildlife. I haven’t seen a Tassie Devil yet but I have found footprints. Dad thinks he saw a feral cat. I got really surprised at the number of English animals that live here e.g. hedgehogs, blackbirds, sparrows, starlings. We have only seen squashed hedgehogs so far.
I have been enjoying all the lovely fires each evening because it is a bit colder down here and very windy. The sand is different here because the sand grains are bigger and the waves have been really rough on the west coast. They can get to 20m high in storms. I have found many crabs in the seaweed with algae on their shells. Most of the places we have visited have crystal clear seawater. I found loads of bones from animals like ringtail possums jawbones, pademelon hip bones and lots of other small bones.
