Koala Garden

Visit and Review Kuranda Koala Gardens

Hey I went here with my girlfriend and we got to hold a koala bear and pet kangaroos and wallabies, it was so awesome. To see the whole post check out my new self hosted wordpress blog (much cooler than this one) Lots of pictures and an entire Review of the Koala Gardens

 

What is the best place in Australia to hold a Koala Bear?

Tiger and Lions

Tigers and Lions

As promised I will continue the Zoo theme for the week. During my visit to the Melbourne zoo I got a few nice pictures of the Lions and Tigers. I had a clear shot of the Tiger, but I had to photograph the Lion through a chain link fence. I think the Pictures still came out pretty good though. I just had to zoom right in and focus and the fence nearly disappeared.

Tigers – Tiger Pictures

This is one of my favourite pictures that I took. He did a pretty good pose for me!


I put these coulagges together just to try something new. I think they look pretty cool. Any advice or feedback?


In this picture I was panning as the Tiger was running, I think it came out pretty good, what do you think?


Lions

The Lion was pretty far away and I have a basic zoom lens with no IS so I tried my best to get a good shot of this guy.



Well that is all for now. Let me know what you think of the pictures. Thanks!

Pigeons are Stupid

Stupid Pigeons

During my many travels in the streets I see a lot of pigeons. I like to watch them because they are dumb and they make me laugh. I do realize that others may be watching me watching the pigeons and they probably think I am stupid but at least I don’t throw my food in the air, and then have it get stuck to my back, and then wander around aimlessly looking for my food. Like this pigeon.

“Where’s the Tomatoe?, Where’s the Tomatoe?”

By the way I know Tomato is not spelt with an e at the end. But I think that is how a pigeon would probably spell it so shut up.

This is not the first time it has happened either. The day before I took this picture a large piece of meat had fallen off of some body’s sandwich. One pigeon was over joyed and began to peck at the meat and throw it into the air in a festive manner, only to have it land on his back. The pigeon was stunned at the disappearing meat trick and looked around everywhere for it, only to have another pigeon steal it right off of his back. Sorry no picture of a pigeon with meat on it’s back, but close your eyes for a second and imagine it. Thanks

Just in case the pigeons are secretly geniuses and are reading this blog right now (you never know) I would like to point out that people are not that bright either


That’s all for now.

Meerkats at the Melbourne Zoo

Meerkats at the Melbourne Zoo

Meer Cats, well it is actually spelt Meerkats which I just learned right now, and you probably did too! They are adorable little guys. When I went to the Melbourne Zoo I fell in Love with them! I took a bunch of pictures which I wanted to share.

MeerKats are a small mammal and a member of the Mongoose family.


A Group of Meerkats is called a group, mob, or clan. When I was at the zoo there were a few mobs of Meerkats and there is always one from each mob watching out for danger. The danger in this case was my girlfriend because there were no high-end fashion shops at the zoo, and she was on an angry rampage.

Birds of Prey (Owls, Hawks, and Eagles) are a natural predator of the Meerkat Is dat a Hawk!?….Nope just stupid bird….Hope he dont poop in ma eye!

How Meerkats spot danger.

When a predator is spotted, the meerkat performing as sentry (the lookout guy) gives a warning bark, and other members of the gang will run and hide in one of the many bolt holes they have spread across their territory. After they all scurry and hide the sentry meerkat is the first to reappear from the burrow and search for predators, constantly barking to keep the others underground. If there is no threat, the sentry meerkat stops signaling and the others feel safe to emerge.

I see u hidin in there SNAKE

Some of a Meerkats natural predators include Birds of Prey (like eagles and hawks and owls), Snakes and Jackals

LOOK OUT A COBRA

Made Ya Look!

Well that’s all for now, hope you enjoyed your meerkat lesson!

Next post: Giant Tortoises make a funny noise when they have sex….and I have the video to prove it!
