Wings Wildlife Center, Tasmania

This is the very last posting of a visit to an Australian wildlife rescue center.
I promise.
Thanks for putting up with my love of animals.

Young kangaroo mother with baby in her pouch.


A caretaker removed the young kangaroo so we could observe him
outside the pouch,
He was very unstable and felt very uncomfortable outside the pouch.



A symbol of Australia, the KOALA.






Tasmanian Devils 






My absolute favorite, the WOMBAT.
I apologize for the fuzzy image. (No pun intended.)
We were allowed to pet him, which made my day.
Coarse fur.
Durable armor on his derriere protects him from fast-moving predators.


The WOMBAT who came home with me.

dear Margaret,
Your pictures are great, thanks for sharing this lovely selection of critters portrait. I love Koalas, and it's a dream for me to see this adorable friend in person...I hope someday I can visit there, so wonderful country!
Hugs and a nice week to you!
Luna is sending purrs and love to you and Mandu.

Australia has some very unique animals (we have better animals in Africa though *wink*) That's baby kangaroo seems to be all legs. Would also love to see the Tasmanian Devil and the wombat

As a wildlife lover I really enjoyed this post and I have never seen such a cool shot of a Wombat. Fantastic!
