Wow... She is adventurous for sure, your Daughter and yes, we don’t really have deadly spiders and snakes in NJ as a rule.  Out West mostly, but not really right here, although they do exist here.

Wallaby

Saw those in Australia! :)

Bats

There are several kinds of bats in The Bronx Zoo: Hoary Bats, Fruit Bats, Tricolored, Eastern Red, Silver Haired, to name just a few. And if you check this link: https://bronxzoo.com/updates/the-bats-of-the-bronx

you can hear their different calls.

I did a search for Quolls and found this cute photo of one:

I never realized there were so many kinds of bats and that link is so interesting Carol.   I also never heard (or knew I did!) a bat sound, a few of them sound like birds!    Thanks for the fun info.

That's what I thought too. They did sound like birds. Those are just some of the bats that are in The Bronx.
