Ballarat, Australia - 21st February 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Everyone,

Today we went to the Ballarat Wildlife Park to see some Australian animals.

we saw two koalas snoozing up a tree  :D

this is the Tasmanian Devil - it got its name from the noise it makes ( screams) and when the early settlers in Tasmania heard these animals and saw just the red of the ears, they called them Devils. Their ears look life devils horns when the sun shines on them from behind.

then I met Tilly the koala - she has a baby in her pouch, at the moment it is tiny.

Later I met a grey kangaroo, but it was too busy eating the food mix we had for it!

these are red kangaroos - they a nervous of people so have to be in a fenced off enclosure.

This is Patrick the wombat - he was trying to sleep but didn't mind us dropping in for a photo - he is nocturnal so gets up at night.

over there is a giant tortoise - he really liked having his back hosed!
He isn't Australian but lives here at the park.
