The famed Australian Zoo, of Steve Irwin the Crocadile Hunter, is in Brisbane near where our grandchildren live. Today, Sean, aged 4, asked if Poppy and Mimi would take him and his older sister, Samantha (5) to see the Crocs. "Crikey!," we couldn't refuse and am I glad we didn't! I have never spent a more enjoyable day in a zoo in my life. Here the wildlife are not caged, but roam free in the wild. Areas are fenced in for our protection, but the animals are in their habitat and are healthy. It was my first time seeing a kangaroo and koala up close and personal. The crocs? Those you stay f
Here is a koala bear eating eucalyptus leaves. They are just adorable.
Seans' shirt got lots of comments from passersby at the zoo today. I would love to hear his explanation!
This was not a live croc, but a slide the kids could have gone on if they had been an inch taller or 6 years old. Next time!
The "Crocadile Hunter" may not be with us any longer, but the crocs he rescued still are and they are part of the Animal Planet's Crocaseums' daily shows. You have to see it to believe it.

Sean really was in Roo Heaven when he learned he could pet them.
Thanks, Steve, for making our holiday with our grandchildren extra special!
