I don't have any pictures of the platypus and Tassie Devil worth sharing because they were constantly on the go and it was dark in the platypus house, but here are my other photos.
A critically endangered Orange-bellied parrot
This leggy fella is a curlew (also endangered)
A rather bedraggled Tawny Frogmouth
A more dignified Tawny Frogmouth
Some other bird I don't know the name of
Sooky young wombat who just wanted to hide
between her keeper's legs
Awe-inspiring massive Wedge-tailed Eagle, Australia's largest
bird of prey with a wing span up to two metres
Baby freshwater crococile
I spy with my snakey little eye...
We visited the animal hospital where a stick insect was among the patients. The vets actually operated on it and put it under using gas. When they were done, they used superglue to 'stitch' it up! I don't know how they knew it was sick or what was wrong with it, or how they worked out how much gas to use so they didn't kill it.
Oh, I also tasted some wine and chocolate.
