BEST VIEWED LARGER
A visit to the Australian Reptile Park outside Sydney yielded MANY photos of Australian Wildlife. Visitors are allowed to walk into various enclosures that house birds and other creatures.
THIS is the Flying Fox, otherwise known as a Fruit Bat. It was a hot afternoon when we visited, so they were sleeping off the heat.
This little critter woke up in time for a quick shot, but looks none too pleased at the disturbance.
Taken during my epic Australian Adventure, late November through mid-December, 2010.
