Rockhampton Zoo

We’re in Rockhampton, it’s famous for beef.

We went to the zoo, it’s free! It’s quite small and we only spent an hour there.

My favourite animal that we saw was the dingos, they look very much like a dog. In South Australia they can be kept as pets, but elsewhere in Australia they are viewed as vermin. The aboriginals used to train dingos to help them hunt.

This is a lace monitor lizard, it’s a scavenger and often found around picnic areas in Australia trying to find scraps of food.

We also saw a black swan, a python, a crocodile and a funny looking bird called a spoon billed bird.

We left the zoo because Mum and George were being eaten alive by mozzies! I was fine!
