Not sure - is Bonorong an animal rehabilitation/sanctuary near Hobart? If it is, that is probably where we were! We just happened to see it as we were driving and stopped in, so I do not remember exactly where we were.

Did you go to Bonorong? I haven't been there in awhile. Despite their being only 20 minutes from where we live. I keep meaning to go see the baby devils.
