Here are few more pictures from my trip to Australia. Starting in February I'll be posting about the idea of re-creation, as it applies to jobs, careers or building a business. But for now please enjoy these gorgeous creatures. Scroll to the end for the surprise wombat!
All of the animals pictured are rescue animals living at Wings Wild Life Park in Burnie, Tasmania. Once they go into captivity, they cannot survive back in the wild.
And yes, there is such a thing as a Tasmanian devil. They are sweet and cuddly. The guide told us a human bite has 150 pounds of pressure, and the Tasmanian devil has 3,000 pounds per bite. Don’t get between these devils and a piece of raw meat.
At this park kangaroos will eat from your hand. One had a baby, pictured below. Australians have the same issues with kangaroo overpopulation (and accidentally running into them on the road at night) as we do with deer in the U.S.
It's easy to see why Tasmanian devils and meerkats, members of the mongoose family, have inspired cartoonists.
The kookaburra is a carnivorous bird in the kingfisher family.
I thought this wombat was sitting on a rock, and then out came baby wombat!
