Our first Koala!

Fri 23rd December 2011

It was time to go and see our very first Koala. And aren’t they cute! They don’t do much, just sit around and sleep loads, but it was very cool all the same.

So we discovered that Koala’s don’t do much. The just sit in the trees and sleep and eat. What a relaxed life they lead!

They’re no where near a manly as an Eagle sitting on your arm. Just saying…

Not only did we get to see a Koala, but a baby one too! Bonus!

Teeneil was so great with all the birds, you can tell she’d been doing it for years. The Eagle even liked cuddles from her too!

Matt says...

See, even Wedge-tailed Eagle’s need a hug some times too!

Claire says...

 

You’re a big boy!

It was now Matt’s turn to hold the Eagle. He looks a bit in awe of it here, and so we were! It’s not everyday you get this close to such a powerful predator.

Matt says...

The photo is slightly out of focus as Claire was a little excited! He’s a huge bird, and weighs a tonne too! I want to keep him! If I had an eagle I could do many manly things, like growing a beard and jousting.

Wedge-tailed Eagle

Fri 23rd December 2011

Here I am holding a massive Wedge-tailed Eagle! We were allowed to hold him for a short while and bask in his magnificance.

Matt

Matt says...

That’s one huge bird! I want one! He can eat small unwanted children from around the area.

 
Claire

Claire says...

He was very heavy, I can’t imagine how tired the keepers must get holding these birds all day!

 

Shy Barn Owl

Fri 23rd December 2011

This pretty Barn Owl was very shy, not budging from its post in the cage. It was good to see a familiar species – one that we recognise from home!
