Down Under in Australia - 26th February: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary: Part Two

Well before you start, you might want to make yourself a cup of tea or coffee, or whatever your choice of drink may be as this is rather a photo heavy post!

Continuing through the Wildlife Sanctuary brought us to the dingo enclosure...

I was watching the dingos...I think it may have been near their feeding time as they were quite active and inquisitive.

Something has caught this one's eye...

Oops, he has spotted me!

Several more photos of these amazing dogs.

I'm bored...

Well we eventually had to move on...as we wanted to watch the Aboriginal Dance display.

Playing a didgeridoo 

Making fire...

This guy did the singing and clapped the sticks together.

During the day we also went to see the crocodiles and watched their feeding time.

The crocodiles seemed to know just when it was time as they started moving before we even saw the keepers approach.

Ready and waiting!

Come and get it!

They do this to keep the crocodiles active to simulate catching prey.

Just look at those jaws...yikes!

Got it!

Phew!  That was exciting.

Time to investigate some rock pools

Chilling out by the waterfall

So lovely and peaceful

Now what do we have here?

Wow, look at this!  Rory will be amazed!

Wowee, I've seen a dragon!  Wait until I tell the lads at home....they will never believe me!

Hmm...this looks like a snake...

Look at the stripes on its body, just like the picture above.

It wasn't long before I discovered the baby crocodiles.

They were so cute, I wanted to take one home with me.

Hmmm...I wonder....

I think he would make a great pet!

I mean he isn't going to take up too much room in the garden surely?

Next we saw....

Oh no!  Watch out Mum!

I wouldn't want to meet any of these in the wild!

Glad they couldn't get out!

Let's move on to something a bit more friendly

Isn't this cute?

A lovely kingfisher

There were lots of lizards wandering around and we just had to take lots of photos of them.

A Tasmanian Devil sleeping...

Yup, more lizards...we just had to take these photos as we know Rory will want to see them.

Isn't he handsome?

I settle down to watch the bird display and what happens?  Some people came and sat in front of me!  How rude...I couldn't see and had to stand up!

This lady was so knowledgeable and told us all about the birds, it was so interesting.

This guy was really funny and tried to 'steal' the show!

Fabulous owls.

This bird was humongous!

Bright and colourful, I just loved the reds and blues of this bird.

Lastly to finish the day off you could feed the parakeets...

Mum's friend Tania enjoyed doing this while Mum took the photos!

The End....
