Subject:Sydney Trip Pics: Creatures.
Time:01:52 am


I figured I'd try to post the last Sydney entry before 2007 ended, so here it is. This photo was taken at Featherdale. Most people hit Taronga Zoo because it's much closer, but Featherdale lets you get really close to the animals. In many cases, you can touch them; and in some cases, you can even mate with them. Here, a kangaroo and I enjoy post-coital ice cream cones.

The Royal Botanic Gardens is home to a large colony of fruit bats. These guys spend all day sleeping in the trees, dreaming of fructose and Vitamin C. At dusk, you can see them flying over the city, looking for innocent papayas and guava to prey upon.

Also in the Royal Botanic Gardens are giant eels. They live in a large pond that's so murky that you can't see them until they surface. And Good Lord, these creepy bastards are fucking huge. According to Paul, their diet includes baby ducklings. The groundskeepers tried to relocate the baby eels to another pond; but at night they could see the eels crawling across the lawns to return to this pond.

Kookaburras look like cartoon characters, because their heads are disproportionately large. But that doesn't explain why I'm making that face.

Koala bears are probably the world's most boring animals. They're either getting stoned off eucalyptus leaves, sleeping, or just sitting there, thinking about sleep. That's it. This one might have actually been dead. Who knows? I tried slapping him around and even put his hand in a glass of warm water. Nothing.
