Melbourne Zoo – Tiger Tiger

Melbourne Zoo - Tiger Tiger

Surprisingly this isn’t the first appearance of a tiger here! The first was from the 2006 sand sculptingTiger Tiger.

Of all the animals in the Zoo the tigers and elephants seem the least comfortable. The tigers always seems to be nervously pacing the same track. After all a gilded cage is still a cage.

Kilsyth Kangaroo

A kangaroo is not exactly what you expect to find in suburbia. This kangaroo seems quite happy in the horse paddock that we can wee in the distance from our kitchen window, Zoe and I saw it a few weeks ago on a late afternoon walk, this time the light was better and it was closer to our side of the paddock.

Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo

Another lovely lunchtime surprise, a pair of yellow-tailed black-cockatoos beside one of the Rowville lakes. One of them was on a branch over the footpath and took off as I walked underneath – scaring the living daylights out of me. These are seriously big birds, especially when they are at head height!
