G-Day Mate!!! I've been in Australia for a little under a week and I'm having an awesome time! There is way too much to write about. This morning I visited the Billabong Wild Reserve. It was really cool!!! I was able to hold just about every animal. Below are some pictures and facts about the animals plus my next question. Remember the first student to answer the question correctly will get a prize. Leave your name in your response:)
Here is a picture of a koala with its Joey. The grossest fact I've heard all day is that a Joey will eat the mothers bowels so it can build up a tolerance for the eucalyptus leaves that it eats. How could something so cute do something so gross! Yuck!
Here's a picture of a wombat. This creature is similar to a koala however it uses its claws to burrow a hole in the ground and live there.
This live snake, the Inland Taipan, is considered the most dangerous snake in the world!! It has enough venom in one bite to kill 100 humans. It's one of the few animals I was not allowed to touch.
This animal looks and hops like a kangaroo, but it is smaller and has a different color. What is the name of this animal?
Ok, there is the question. I have so many more pictures of native wildlife that I can show when school starts. Remember, I'll put up between 1-3 posts a week, so keep checking back.
