Mmmm that tickles!

Fri 23rd December 2011

This owl loved to be tickled – just like me! It’s favourite spot was just behind it’s head. It was funny to watch the reaction.

I think we’ve just found Claire’s bird equivalent. This is exactly what happens when you tickle Claire’s head! This was my favourite bird in the show, the Barking Owl. It’s easy to see where it gets its names, it really does make a lot of noise while flying!

Claire says...

Very sensible owl. Tickles behind the head are indeed very nice. I even spotted a bit of eye-rolling – he definitely had it down to a T.

 

Fly Osprey, fly

Fri 23rd December 2011

We peeped in on a few different species of birds, this beautiful one is a Osprey. Their wing spans are huge, it’s no wonder they create a stir in the birds shows.

Matt

Matt says...

That’s one impressive wing span! The talons on him don’t look to shabby either!

Cute Possum factor

Fri 23rd December 2011

Here’s Matt holding a black Possum. This one really liked him, not wanting to go back into its little house once we were done.

Matt

Matt says...

My turn with the sleepy Possum. Nope, I think he’s still asleep and hasn’t got a clue what’s going on!

Possum part two

Fri 23rd December 2011

The black Possum didn’t smell as much as the golden one, we’re not sure why. It was quite happy to sit there and be petted!

Matt

Matt says...

Claire will be popular with these Possums, waking them all up. I’d imagine they get as grumpy as she does when she doesn’t get enough sleep!

Little Possum

Fri 23rd December 2011

We went behind the scenes of the bird show to meet some of its stars. This little Golden Possum was very cute and liked cuddles!

Matt

Matt says...

This little guy looks a little dazed and confused, that’s because he’s just been woken up so Claire could cuddle him. He doesn’t seem to mind though. He’s just chilling out being a Possum.

 
Claire

Claire says...

I’ve never held a possum before. How very Australian!
