tbh, i didn't do this all by myself. i was doing a wooden jigsaw with my daughter on the weekend of this and thought it could be interesting as a map here.

How would you incorporate bonuses into this map? I'm not really seeing a way to do so right now
what i was thinking is the larger animals could be territories much like states or provinces traditionally are. the kangaroo, wallaby, osterich and koala would contain 3 or 4 terits and most other animals 2 with the bush rat only 1 terit.
that would give about 36 terits and 15 bonus regions.

Issue being i wouldn't want to include an animal in any region where it wasn't found i.e. platypus in WA or NT
in a way that already happens here. the image of the koala is not in a map of africa and the image of the osterich is not in a map of south america. all the images are where there are found (broadly speaking), which is australia.
as for moving them around i am a rather terrible artist. that image in the 1st post took me 6 hours and i was following natty's GIMP Basics guide at the time. the way i see it is if one animal is moved then others will have to be too, and reshaped, or replaced - in order to get the australian coastline with no internal dead space. that is beyond my meager skills.
