Q: Will there be crocodiles in the streets?
A: Only during high water, like during the king tides in Cairns where one poor croc got run over by a car in the industrial area and during the floods in Katherine where an aerial photograph showed a crocodile in the middle of the main street in front of the supermarket swimming along.
Q: Do you have monkeys in Australia?
A: YES! Several zoos throughout Australia have monkeys! There are none in the wild, if you look at the world map and follow the islands of Indonesia along in you will notice that (if you have a good map) somehere to the east of Bali, there is a line on the map called the Wallace line. This is where Mr. Wallace, a Pommie biologist if I remember correctly, noted the changeover between Asian and Australian flora and fauna.

Q: Dear Webmaster down under,
A: Dear Fritz and Gretchen, the choice of the right pet depends on a few factors;
The crocodile will need water to swim, so you need to have a swimming pool or live near a lake. Your Aboriginal nanny will have to work seven days a week and watch the croc all the time, as the croc will grow and when it gets to about one and a half metre it can eat your son.
The koala will need to eat eucalyptus leaves, so you must have some of these trees in your garden, or in a nearby park where the Aboriginal nanny can walk the koala every day, but it must be kept on a leash as otherwise the koala can climb high up a tree and then when it gets stoned from eating the eucalyptus leaves it will fall asleep and not come down again for a few days.
If you get a big size kangaroo then your son can sit in the pouch and enjoy to ride around, but you will need a big house and a big garden to give the kangaroo enough space to jump around, the Aboriginal nanny can probably train the kangaroo to take your son to school and pick up again in the afternoon.
I hope this will help you to choose the right pet.
Q: I have just moved to Australia and am not sure if you can buy kangaroo teeth in the supermarket. what do you suggest?
A: Did you mean meat or teeth?
