this is a Tasmanian Devil - they scream and growl and are really scarey out in the bush. The early settlers called them Devils because they could hear them and catch glimpses of their ears, which look red when the sun is behind them, and they sounded really frightening! The settlers weren't sure what they were at first!

Here are some more koalas - they were busy checking out their gum leaves - did you know if the gum leaves fall on the ground the koalas refuse to eat it!!? Pretty fussy huh!! :stare:

I met a kangaroo, it is a Western Gray - they are very friendly, especially as people feed them a seed and grain mixture, they come and look for it. I was tickled by its whiskers!! :D

another emu - it was eying off the food a kangaroo had - their eyes are a bit scarey Mum especially for a little koala and they have a big beak!! ;)

Up the back here is a red bellied black snake - Sue's husband saw one here in the back yard yesterday!! I think I will stay inside for a few days now!! ;) Sue is too!!

Oops, blurry photo - but here I met some outback koalas and told the all about being a TV - I am not sure they understood though. I was waiting for something special to happen.

More soon
Love and hugs
Binky
