All of Australia is buzzing about the new star for Steve Irwin that is going to be installed in Hollywood next week. I was lucky to go to the zoo on March 5, but I was also unlucky because it was a very hot and humid day. The entrance fee is very expensive $59 for general admission and it was too hot to see everything. I really liked the videos on youtube that show what I missed seeing because of the heat. Google the Australian Zoo to watch the most recent video.
I was greeted by a free Australian lizard as I came in the door, he was obviously enjoying the heat and humidity.
I didn’t even take many pictures that day. But I felt a lot of sympathy for the mother Kangaroo caring for her oversized baby. Notice the baby is almost the size of the mother. In the first picture you can see his legs sticking out of her pouch, in the second he is standing beside her:
