This non-genealogical morning was devoted to Australia’s unusual animals.
My first animal encounter (below) was with a joey – a baby kangaroo – named Blossom.
Sorry I didn’t get this one’s name (right).
There were lots of free-hopping wallabies, which are a smaller marsupial than kangaroos. Visitors can buy ice-cream cones filled with their feed.
Fairy penguins – the smallest variety – were enjoying the water today – except for these two!
