What! Take a Photo of Me?

Hello Dhaaarlings...


My recent adventure to the Melbourne Zoological Gardens was just delightful.

Everything was over priced particularly food and drinks as can be expected these days... I hadn't been to the zoo in over 25 years and was astounded by how much has changed... for the better i might add... from an animal welfare perspective. The enclosures are larger for the animals and a lot more natural with large areas of grass, soil and plantings of vegetation and waterways... but mor of that later...

For this post... I've decided to share with you some of the "more obscure" and "less famous" critters in captivity...

So here we go darlings...


As you can see... I tended to focus on little critters... 



More frogs...






A groovy green lizard...



A stealthy Chameleon... I assumed he was was alive... he didn't move his body at all... but I did see his eye madly wiggling about...






An upside down Sea Horse...



A schoal of Whiting and other salt water dwellers...



Two sad looking "Fairy" Penguins... Oops... I'm not mean't to call them "Fairy" Penguins any more... Apparently the homosexuals amongst them took offence and now wish to be known as "Little" Penguins.... 
Had I been a homosexual penguin looking for a "Less offensive" name... I think I would have gone with  "Cheerful" "Flamboyant" or even "Well Hung"  Penguin... Certainly not "Little"



An endangered "Corroboree" frog



Some Iguana



Some sort of Python... Lets call him "Monty"...



And an adveturous dare devil tortoise...


And an even bigger daredevil... what a show off!...


A snake... But I didn't hang about to catch it's name...


Another lizard of some sort...


Looking quite regal perched upon his royal log... 



The tortoise race seemed to take forever...


A cute little bulldozer... or rather a Wombat


Another lizard...






And finally... a festering Baboon's arse...

So there you have it... Many of the little known attractions at the Melbourne Zoological Gardens...

Next time I might show you some of the bigger creatures that I also managed to snap on my adventure... Just for your entertainment darlings...
