Lots of new fractal friends have been added to the Oz Wildlife Studio Shop. This time they are matted prints for your young child’s bedroom wall or to decorate the nursery with bright and eye-catching, educational wall art. Here’s a preview of some of the designs and of course, they can all be personalised with your own child’s name or personal wording.Pin It
This post caught my eye as I witness similar behaviour in my garden. These feisty little birds show no fear of much larger birds when it comes to feeding time. For this sulphur-crested cockatoo, spotted yesterday in Sydney’s Hyde Park, it came in the form of a noisy miner swooping in to knock him off his perch. Taronga Zoo bird expert Matthew Kettle said miners rarely hesitated to pester larger species invading their turf, particularly with nesting season so close. “They’re not really trying to harm the cockatoo, they’re just want to bug him to a point where he will leave,” Mr Kettle said.

Battered and bruised after a lonely night in the bush, these abandoned twin baby wallabies are born survivors. The helpless pair – weighing in at just 400g each and barely five months old – were yesterday recovering after being found at Killara, Sydney at the weekend.
