These are a few photos which are courtesy of my daughter who spent the day with our Canadian visitor at the local Zoo feeding the animals (a special tour under Zoo Keeper supervision). I didn't have the courage to do this. I think I would have fainted at the point they gave me the horse and deer and rats to feed the animals....the food they eat scares me more than the big cats......you get the picture (so no gory dinner pics on the blog). However, the animals really look kind of cute from this safe distance..and are very well looked after. I love the shy Koala who refused to show his sweet face. Aussies aren't usually that timid. Click on the images to see a larger version (if you are game, of course).
