We had a lovely surprise visit from my brother and his two sons last week and what better place to take some teenage boys who live between the UK and the Bahamas but Australia Zoo.
Here I am being brave, yes, its a live wriggly cold but very soft to the touch baby crocodile! As you can tell by my face I did not enjoy the experience at all.
Here is Zac with the Cockatoo keeper.
I was fasintated by this snake skeleton, even though this snake is quite dead it still gave me the shivers just looking at it (remember my close encounter with a snake back in 2007.....when it was in my TV room? No? well read this)
This mother and baby wombat stole my heart...
We stood in line to feed this girl x I gave her some banana...it vanished very quickly!
We saw giant tortoises...
We saw and got to pat the Koalas, they are amazingly soft to the touch.
some crazy stupid people from our family (the visitors) decided it would be fun to hold a large snake.....what were they thinking????
I loved these red hot pokers (not sure of the real name) that were in the 'Africa' part of the Zoo.
the Rhino family were very muddy and very big!
Well, we had a wonderful day, we watched the croc show with Terri, Bindi and Robert were the presenters. I was exhausted when we got home as I am not used to being outside all day!
What a whirlwind few days with had with our visitors....now its back to normal (whatever that is!)
