Hey Jaymie train trip to the Dandenongs. Belgrave train.. get off at Upper Ferntree Gully, head east along the train track until you go into the national park. Possible lyrebirds, echidnas and wombats in there.

@ Mark.. It had just eaten my green frog that lived in the box..
I am moving up with my animals in the box.. First in was a cockroach, then a gecko then a little naked frog, then a big green frog and now a snake.. :) I dont.'t think she will stay so the postie should be save.. :)

It sure is keeping an eye on you. Doesn't look like it's eaten much of your mail.
