Earlier this week we had the chance to play hooky from school and work and take a quick trip to the Australian Outback. Alright fine, we didn’t go to Australia, but close! We got a sneak peek at the new Conrad Prebys Australian Outback. Almost every Australian animal you can think of is there. Koalas, wombats, parma wallabies, the short-nosed echidna, fawn-breasted bowerbird, palm cockatoo, Gouldian finch, scarlet-chested parrot , and the kookaburra. WHEW!
Zookeeper Rick did an amazing job taking us on a tour of the new exhibit which opens to the public TODAY!!! So get down to the zoo this weekend! This exhibits makes this the largest population of Koala’s outside of Australia. They may not be cuddly, but those Koala’s are super cute!!!
