I must need help. I knew what most of those critters were even before all the pictures loaded. Australia has THE COOLEST lizards. One of these days I am going to visit Lizard Island, somewhere off the Auzzie coast.

By the way, you have cute possums. The possums here in the United States are horribly ugly. Think of a naked George Bush and multiply that by 100. Possums are STILL uglier.

I love Australian animals! So unique! And now I can finally say that I know what a Kookaburra after singing for 50 years:

“Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Merry, merry king of the bush is he,
Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh, Kookaburra,
Gay your life must be. “

Lazy Iguana ... yep, we sure do have cool lizards ... some of them are VERY fast, too. I've never been to Lizard Island, but have heard it is great. Let me tell you, some of our possums may look cute, but they can be right ornery critters !!!

Nick ... Glad I could finally help you with a Kookaburra ... you only had to ask !!! I can't believe you know that song ... we sing that as kids ... great fun !!

Take care, Meow

Thank goodness you explained what a galah was. It sounded vaguely pornographic.

INteresting, very interesting. I think I want to visit Australia someday, only the 24 hour flight kind of scares me... it must be so neat to live where Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are from. I have a major crush on Keith...yes I admit it ;).

Meow said...

Jeanette ... thanks. Evil Blogger wouldn't let me post the pics with the song the day before !!!

Saur ... hahahaha !!!

Kish ... mmmm, Keith Urban is a bit of a hunk, even though he has his problems at the moment !!

Take care, Meow
