Koalas! Kangaroos! Kookaburra! Cockatoo! Get your Australian animals here!!
Back in October (oh why has it taken me so long to post??) we took a drive with Mario's CSIRO coworkers Shiri (from Israel) and Nadine (from Switzerland). Wildlife and breathtaking vistas abounded!
So, without further ado...
|Our good little car - made it the whole way and back

Then we were off to see some kangaroos!
|He wanted to jump with the kangaroos, but the sign said you could only golf with them.
|Aparently, kangaroos really like golfing
|Big awesome caterpiller
|No, that's not food!!

|Our first koala sighting!!
|He came down from his tree...
|walked over to another tree, scurried up it and promptly started GROWLING at us! It was the craziest sound ever! I'll try to upload some of the videos I took of the koalas, soon...
|We pet this one. He didn't seem to mind, but we were ready to run for it if he got upset!
|This Koala is holding a baby against its chest. It's kind of hard to see, but once you know it's there, isn't it just too cute for words?
