Fun facts! Great!

Without looking it up and cheating, I'll guess 900 spider species.

I can imagine the early settlers drinking so much. There was not much to do back then, and if you read historys of the early settlers, they were often arrested for being drunk, men AND women.

I dont have a clue but given I fear them so I will say 2400 because it sure as hell seems like it!

I am absolutely not shocked that they drank that much!! Infact, have times really changed? Hah!

My guess.... 1500. I could google, but cant be bothered heh!

They had to drink heaps - the water was a killer - not much fresh stuff around - and paid in rum - plleaasse what does one expect ...

Spiders - well I'm going with 400 - and all of them live in Queensland bar the nasty trap doors which Sydney can have - hugs le
