Ozzie Beauties

Over the holidays we ganged up with some family members and visited a nearby animal park, where we saw these beauties.

One big fat crocodile, one red-bellied black snake (the same ones as live under our pool) and a very friendly wallaby (so used to kids around that it didn't mind some patting from Boo Boo).

They had some nice reptile shows - the kids loved it. Beaver quietly stood on the side looking at it all, Possum sat on the fence (literally) and watched intently, but touched not a single animal. Their two cousins sat on the fence too, touching whatever they could, and volunteering to help a number of times (although to their big disappointment, they did not get chosen). I held up Boo Boo, who was very interested and keen to touch all the reptiles. One of the baby crocs was a bit aggro and kept biting the ranger's shoes - and Boo Boo pointed at her shoes and said "me!"

At the very end, only one of the children was game enough to pose for a photo with Fluffy. Any guesses which child, and what type of animal Fluffy was?

I'm guessing Boo Boo and that Fluffy is a snake.

Boo Boo posed with Fluffy the croc. That's my guess.
