Joey and Todd Visit an Australian Wildlife Park


Joey and Todd are at an Australian Wildlife Park. They both want to see the Tasmanian devil, which is a small ferocious carnivorous marsupial from Tasmania.


They walk to the echidna enclosure and they are allowed in to have, a hands on encounter if they want to.  An echidna is a spine-covered monotreme mammal of Australia with a long snout and claws. It can also be called the spiny anteater.



The Koala bears are next.They eat eucalyptus leaves. It looks like they have eaten all the leaves in their enclosure. The zoo helper will change them into another enclosure later today.

                                      

The crocodiles are waiting to be fed.


Joey has his arms too far over. The zoo helper will not be pleased if he sees Joey reaching over so close.

Well one of the Zoo keepers comes has observed Joey reaching over and asks him to move back. The zoo keeper informs the boys that the crocodiles are due to be fed. I few minutes later another zoo keeper arrives with a bucket of fish for the crocodiles. The boys enjoy watching the crocodiles have their meal.

They walk to the wombat’s enclosure next. The wombats are awake and shuffling around looking for some food. They are due to be fed.

The Kangaroos are upright and jumping around.  Joey and Todd would love to enter the enclosure to be able to pat them.



The next area is where the birds hang out. If you stand still or sit still the Australian native birds will fly down and they can be petted.

The boys are informed before they leave the Australian Wildlife Park that renovations are planned and to come back and visit in a few months’ time.
