    I'm aware of those but was only counting species that are on-exhibit.
    When did they get the wallaby?

    They’ve had the wallaby for as long as I can remember visiting the zoo... over 10 years.

    Perhaps you didn't look hard enough then :p as there was at least one present for all of mine that year.

    No signage for it, at least. I would like to think I didn't miss it but it is completely possible I did.

    ...and also there should be a New Zealand category.

    Global, Australasia, Other, and New Zealand. Or you could just call that last category Chlidonias. Anybody with the user-name Chlidonias can win the last one.

    Ok so official changes:
    -Everyone is eligible to win all challenges but you can only count species you've seen within a region for that challenge.
    -We have a new separate challenge called the Chlidonias challenge and only he may win it :p

    You have no idea how tempted I was to make an account called "ChlidoniasUK" and register, just to prove you should have stuck to a New Zealand category and not been so egocentric as to try and get your own category! :p

    I was hoping you would and then I could ban you for sock-puppetry. The ultimate in snubs for Brum.

    If a girl made an account would it be "Chlidonimiss"?

    Don't boo me I name the winner.

    Only if she's from Scotland.

    If Brum's account gets banned then we'll be one Chlidoniless :(

    I was hoping you'd say, "no that'd be the ChlidoniNess" :oops:
