Subject: RE: Help name an Irish band
I've never laid eyes on a wombat, but understand it to be an Australian critter, a kind of marsupial. I think they are small harmless beasts that scurry about in the night, although for all I know there are wombats that grow as big as grizzly bears. The only marsupials we get around here are possums, a public nuisance that have been making their wicked way up from the US and sneaking into the few warm spots we have in the country.

The coolest critter in Australia has to be the flying fox.
