Marty is Still at Australia Zoo

This model of a crocodile is used to show how big a crocodile could have grown in the wild before humans started getting involved in their lives. It's a little bit scary to see how big they could get! Here I am with a real life croc. He came from a farm where he was not being treated well at all. Steve saved him, and brought him to Australia Zoo. He is not a fan of people after what he went through, but he has met his girlfriend here! They are a very devoted couple, which the lady thinks is sweet. It is lovely to know that he got his chance for a good life. He couldn't be released into the wild because he was born in captivity, but I think being in a place as well run as Australia Zoo is the next best thing.
Here I am with a python. That thing could cause big trouble for a racehorse, let alone a little mouse, so I'm sure thankful for the glass. (You can see the toll this trip is taking on my tail, here. I am losing my floof!).

This guy was a fascinating fellow. His name is Bruce, and he is a brolga. The lady thinks he looks like a dinosaur.
The lady made me post this one. Please don't hold me responsible. You can't take her anywhere. That afternoon, we drove to Surfers Paradise for afternoon tea with the man's Nan. We got to meet her handsome ginger and white kitty, Tiger. He was a happy friendly guy. We then drove down to Coffs Harbour for a very deep sleep.

Marty, that first photo was a little bit scairty, until we realized the alligator was just a pretend alligator! The lady is a little bit silly! hahaha!

Have you tried any hair products for your floof? We are happy that the croc has found his true love, what a sweet story. As for the lady, well, you're on your own with that one 8-)

Marty, we think it's very amazing that you have teleporting powers and managed your adventures at the zoo, plus a quick popover to our place for some playtime!

AAAAhhhhhh! CROCODILE! My Mommie taught me to stay far, far away from the alligators in the lake behind the house, and I am sure the same applies for crocodiles, too!

Marty, please take it easy and don't get too close to those vishus monster critters, ok? We want you in one piece and safe!
