Koala and More

Stacey and Rhett set us up with visits to some fun places when were were their guests.  This was a Christmas gift to remember.  The first gift was a day at Gorge Wildlife Park.  Warren and I finally got to hold a Koala.  With a big bag of peanuts in tow we spent our day seeing wallabies, several varieties of kangaroos, wombats, quoklas, penguins, alligators, pademelons, herons, ibis, egrets, camels, wombats, meerkats, cockatoos, wallaroos, and one lone Tasmanian Devil .   We saw the dingos and afterward we were sure they were capable of eating our babies.

 We were in hopes Sage would be big enough to hold a koala but as 
the ones they had to hold were rather large the handler deemed him too small.

He had no trouble making friends with any of the animals.
Both kids were old hands at feeding the wildlife.

Great shots Rebecca! We finally have a warmish day here in the Hills, no doubt you're still surrounded by lots of snow in Iowa.
