Could this koala be more cuddly - or Australian!And after a feed of gum leaves, a snooze in a convenient tree. Koalas are known to frequently fall out of trees during a kip!
Here is a tawny frogmouth owl. Quite a creepy looking bird, with his triangular shaped eyes!
Below, the dingo - Australia's largest terrestrial predator, although this one looked pretty innocuous!Mary the wombat. Seems cuddly, loves chopped veg, but look at those claws!
My granddaughter had a happy time feeding wallabies, a duck who was keen to get in on the act, and even a kangaroo which stood considerably taller than her at full stretch!
Below, a bush-stone curlew, which looks quite different to our curlews at home.
Although obviously not a local, I have to include the orang-utan because he was my granddaughter's favourite at the zoo.
And finally, a kindly looking pelican!
