We were lucky during our trip to Kangaroo Island to encounter many wildlife in its natural surrounding. Wildlife are everywhere in Kangaroo island. Watching the koalas on the tree at Koala Walk which is near to Flinders Chase National Park. There were also many young baby koalas in their mother cuddles on the tree.
My mother would really like to have this Cape Barren goose on her backyard. The Cape Barren goose is about the same size as a normal domestic goose but different characteristics, such as bright pink legs, grey plumage, black bill with a bright green core. Due to hunting, by the 1950s their number were so low (estimated 200 individuals that biologist feared they may be close to extinction. Various initiatives were put in place in an attempt to save this beautiful bird. Although the population of geese is now steady and increasing it still remains one of the rarest of the world's geese (Koala Walk information centre).
Tammar wallabies are everywhere on the island. Sadly, you always encounter a dead one while driving. Wallabies has a smaller and fine feature than the kangaroo. In the picture, tammar wallaby in front and Kangaroo Island kangaroo which has evolved differently fom the mainland is at the back of the wallaby. We saw many wallabies beside the road, be sure to be extra careful when driving at night because they are attracted to the light.
Due to island isolation, the echidnas in Kangaroo island also have evolved a bit differently from the mainland like the Kangaroo Island kangaroo. Echidnas are very shy animal.
Don't miss out watching the New Zealand Fur seals at the Admiral Arch basking in the sun.
I saw this little beatle walking on the sand at Little Sahara, remind me of 'The Mummy' movie.
The highlight was walking on the beach watching the Australian sea-lion playing and relaxing on the beach. They are simply adorable creatures. Although the male or bull looks like it has so any extra fat on him, he can run very fast so be careful and listen to your guide tour.
You can see emu along the unsealed road from farm.
This is my last post for Kangaroo Island. Thank you for joining the trip with me :).
