An Aussie Afternoon

This afternoon we went to a friends place to see her native animals. J & D own a stock feed store not too far from us. It is on a huge property. J looks after injured native animals. Mum took along one of her friends whose parents are out here from China. The parents can't speak a word of English but really enjoyed themselves.


Blue kangaroo.

Red Kangaroo having a lovely scratch. Talk about great ab strength.
A red kangaroo and a grey kangaroo. The grey is called Delta and she likes to give hugs if you scratch her under the chin.
Two reds
Not sure what this kangaroo is but he was a real poser.
This is while he was eating and the next photo is just after he tried to eat the camera

A baby wallaby that is being hand reared.
This Sulphur Crested Cockatoo was a real attention seeker. If our attention went to one of the other animals he would thrash about upside down on a branch trying to get us to look. As soon as we looked at him he would quiet down, stand still and say "hello!"
He was the biggest poser for photos. He preferred to be on someones arm or shoulder and he was put in a tree he would break branches off it (including lemons).
