    My Australian trip report is published...

    Hello all,

    finally I managed it. The trip report about my holiday in Australia is published.
    Thank you for all your help with identifying reptiles and amphibians...

    Actually I am not yet sure with all the Australian animals, especially the birds...
    Perhaps you like to read the report and correct my mistakes?

    Unfortunatelly the text is in German...but the pictures are international :)

    Regards,
    Alexandra

    Not sure what kind of possum that is, but there are many different kinds. Maybe Lemuroid Ringtail Possum?

    Australien is Australian. Hope you did spell check before you got it published.

    Nice photos Alexandra, you got to see a lot of wildlife in your travels.

    Australien is German/Deutsch for Australia...

    I would not be so sure on that your dorsii comment Gus. Even though its a Wells name, it certainly appears valid, there seems to be a few people starting to use it now

    I hadn't ever heard of it and did a quick search and couldn't turn up much, so assumed it was an older out of date name. what would this be more commonly referred to as?
