Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary: Video

Brisbane: 26th August 2010

‘In this cage, ladies and gentlemen, we have the Oozlum Bird. When agitated, it flies around in ever-decreasing circles at ever-increasing velocity until it finally disappears … etc. etc.’

If you’ve waited a week to see the images of Barak, the platypus, here he is. That’s an advantage of video; any written description of a visit to a zoo or animal park tends, if you’re not very careful, to sound like a primary school kid’s essay on a visit to the zoo.

So, I shall say no more, and just invite you to sit back and enjoy.

    A great video, I had to smile when I saw the Kookaburra, we have a new baby kookaburra in our neighbourhood, and every morning he has a few words to say or I should say laughs. When I was growing up my Mum used to say to me the kookaburras are laughing again. 😀

    • Sorry I hit post before I was ready Duh!
      For anyone that is interested you can hear the sound of the Kookaburra here on one of our Government web sites.
