Visit to World Largest Koala Sanctuary - Lone Pine, Brisbane Australia

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Blue-winged Kookaburra

Blue-winged Kookaburra is closely related to laughing Kookaburra, which is easily distinguished by metallic blue wing markings and high pitched trilling call.

Freshwater Crocodile

Crocodiles have 66 teeth which all may be replaced if lost.

Emu blocking the entrance

An emu- the male will sit on the eggs for 8 weeks until they hatch which during the period, the male hardly leaves the nest, not even to eat or drink. He loses a considerable amount of weight, relying only on the fat reserves that he built up before nesting.
