You may be pleased to know that I am just about out of images from my recent trip to Wilson's Prom. - although there will be some Prom Birds along later! While the scenery is great, its also a place where you can have some seriously good views of classic Australia wildlife.
Tidal River, which is the 'hub' of the Park has a large population of resident wombats, and in the winter its not that hard to find one trundling about. Common Wombats are the world largest hole dwelling herbivore, which is not the kind of fact you find on most blogs!
Wombats are rather chunky animals - with large animals being over a meter long and weighing in excess of 30 kg! (which is over 3 feet long and 60 pounds in old money!)
These are picture of a Swamp Wallaby - he (or she) seemed pretty relaxed about me taking her photograph in the winter sunshine. In the end he just sat down and disappeared from view.
You can find more shots from around the world (but probably not too many more marsupials) at Our World Tuesday. SM
