feeding kangaroos
the joey was so cute getting in and out of it's mothers pouch
the dingos i've seen wild look a lot more scrawney, can't help but wonder if this one is is interbred with domestic dogs, not many 100% pure ones left.
they wild life park was my fave place,and giving u a change from beaches !![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Roxy, are those kangaroos full grown? I always pictured them a bit larger than that.

I think we are accustomed to seeing the red kangaroos in our zoos here. I seem to remember them being about as tall as humans.

Ok, I did a little research on Wikipedia, and the Kangaroo Island Kangaroo is apparently a subspecies of the western grey.

Hi, Rox!
The Dingo looks very well-fed and well-groomed,
doesn't it?
The tree kangaroo is news to me!
It looks like a fun place to visit.
Thanks!

Rox,
Good! I'm glad. It's fully explorable - or it was
when I was there. We were kids and we were in and out
and up and down the whole thing -
(which isn't especially large... at a dead run.) [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It's pretty-much as it has been for centuries... it's carved out
of the mountain and pretty-much solid rock - what remains of it.

As I recall it was much! more exciting than looking at the meteor crater.
which resembled nothing except a grown-over shallow impression
(a very LARGE! shallow impression, to be sure) but I was expecting ...
I dunno now... maybe part of a flying saucer or a huge chunk of meteor
lying at the bottom of a steep hole, maybe?
