Before we left Sydney though, our friends Luke and Lyne suggested we check out the Featherdale Wildlife Park. We managed to fit in a visit on the way to the airport yesterday and it was so much fun. I’m currently slightly obsessed with Australian wildlife as a result! 🙂 Here are just some of the awesome animals we got face to face with yesterday.
Not sure what sort of a bird this is but he sure is disapproving!
Tawny frogmouths are like a muppet version of a bird – soooo cute!
Kangaroo with attitude!
The Tasmanian devil!!
Unfortunately these little guys are facing serious threats and are in very real danger of going extinct in the near future due to many factors, including Devil Facial Tumour Disease. 😦
An Albino Wallaroo
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo
A Tiger Quoll. Apparently they are very shy and we got very lucky to see him!
A sleepy Shingle Back Skink
Dingos are so cute!
So is the Northern Spiny-Tailed Gecko
Little Penguins, the smallest penguins in the world
They’re monotremes – egg-laying mammals!
