Thanks E. :thumbs_up:

Batmad will probably have an updated list, which I'm sure he will share once he reads this. :whistle:

Found some articles saying the same thing :thumbs_up:

A few months ago we had a mother with 3 babies living in the big tree on our driveway and somehow the babies must have fallen out and landed in the driveway and the mother came to fetch them and boy can they move on the ground! Not sure on the species but it may very well have been a free tail

Nice Q :clap:

i know i watched a programme on this but cant find the information now :doh:

Is it a type of device that bounces waves off of objects, like echolocation and then beeps louder the closer the person is to a solid object?
