AUSTRALIAN CLASSIC WILDLIFE INCLUDING:

The Grey Kangaroo to the right was photographed at South West Rocks on the New South Wales Coast.

The great Grey Kangaroo is also known as the Eastern Grey Kangaroo and inhabits the Eastern states of Australia. They are grey in colour with a lighter colour underside with a small head and large ears. Eastern Grey Kangaroos have a tail up to 4 feet in length which they balance on or use to prop themselves up when standing. Kangaroos are herbivores and feed mostly on grass, leaves, herbs some fruit and seeds. Many will accept food handouts from tourist visitors in wildlife parks who come to Australia to see them.

Kangaroos tame up very well in a free range zoo environment and are easy to approach. Grey kangaroos can hop or jump up to 10 meters at one bound using the powerful muscles located in their rump. The smaller front limbs are only used to grasp food or other objects. The Kangaroo’s main predators include dingos, pythons, and eagles but the most feared predator is man many are killed during culls or by road kill.

Kangaroos are also bred for food service as the meat is very high quality. Kangaroos live in small groups called mobs; mobs are lead by mature males, younger males and females. They feed mostly at night and can sleep during the day but they also can be very active in the daytime. Kangaroos are cautious when seen in the wild and may hop away from curious visitors to their domain if they feel threatened. Kangaroos can see smell and hear very well.

THE AUSTRALIAN SEA LIONGreeting Card - Sea Lion

The Australian Sea Lion is a rare and interesting animal and is listed as an endangered species with some colonies in decline. The current population is approx 13 000 animals. 80% of these are found along the coast of South Australia. Kangaroo Island has one of the largest colonies with more being found at Baird bay on the Ayr peninsula. At Kangaroo Island around 600-700 animals are viewed via guided tours or boardwalk access at Seal Bay Conservation Park. An Australian Sea Lion is an eared species and the most commonly accepted theory is that they evolved from a dog like creature. Dog like behaviour and personality is sometimes displayed and they have a high degree of intelligence.

There is a great deal of interest in Australian Sea Lions because females are pregnant for 17.6 months which is the longest gestation period for any seal species. In the breeding season males fight each other in competition for females. The average life span for seals at Seal Bay is around 20 years of age. A full grown male can weigh up to 350 kilograms and females around 100 kilograms. Pups are born with chocolate brown coloured coat which moults to a grey black and cream chest and then if a male, will develop a dark chest and a golden mane at about the age of nine years. Sea Lions can swim at speeds up to 30 kilometres an hour. They can dive quite deep to obtain food. They feed on squid, fish, lobsters, cuttlefish and crabs. Walking on all fours they can move efficiently on land.
