... into the pacific .... some more animals...

Added some typical animals that could be used... a few chickens and a dog (Pegasus 1/48 plastics); seen here with some native huts that may be useable
 and some wild pigs ...
and finally something a bit more dangerous - a nice large lizard (Komdo dragon or the like) from Otherworld Miniatures
I need some more suitable native huts and the right sort of natives for Micronesia/Melanesia/Polynesia ....
