We're finally getting around to the kangaroo and koala photos I promised earlier. Last Saturday I visited the Australian Reptile Park on a tour organized by the university. I didn't expect much for the tour since for the past two weeks, it has rained almost every day. Luckily, Saturday was an exception and we had a great day in sunshine.

Now I'd like to note that you don't necessarily need to go to an animal park to see kangaroos, I have seen a few before (albeit from afar). But to get good photos, that's probably the easiest way. At first I assumed it to be something similar to a day at the Ranua wildlife park, which I don't find too inspiring. But instead, time passed so fast that I didn't even get to see everything I would've wanted.

The photos here include fauna such as Alligators, a Tasmanian Devil, a Blue-winged Kookaburra, a Galapagos Tortoise, an Eastern Bearded Dragon, several Kangaroos and an Indian Mynabird (a common bird that's regarded as a pest), Koalas, a Python, some form of a Gecko and a Chameleon and some others I don't even remember the names of.

The croc-like reptiles you see on this page are all American Alligators. I feel bad for missing the Australian Saltwater Crocodiles altogether, but I just didn't have enough time to check them out. I went past their pool at some point, but I understood they were out at the time for a feeding show and I didn't get there in time. Sucks.

The photos including me and the ones below were taken by a Swedish guy Adrian, who's also taking a semester at the university. He has a website at graphfruit.com (although it seems to be down at the moment of writing), where you can probably find a lot more of his photos. Thanks to Adrian for capturing me with the Python!
