Critters & Creatures

           Here is some of the wildlife we live with. All photos are taken on our land within metres of our liveable shed. We never tire of having natural wildlife at our door. We don’t encourage them, we don’t feed them, we all go about our day with respect for each other. However we do leave accessible water around for them. There are numerous moments when we don’t have the camera in hand, here are some we did manage to snap.

             We firmly believe that we have a right to choose who comes into our nest, just like most other beings, so we do reserve the right to relocate any intruders back outside, to find an alternative hunting ground or nest.

Randy the Roo - 2Mt Tall & definitely horny. On heat he was a bit aggressive to women!

We called this bloke “Randy Roo” – 2Mt Tall & definitely horny. He was a bit aggressive to human women – forward in fact, not at all shy. He was Very Big, Very Powerful, Very Fast!  He claimed the pile of woodchip to laze around on, and hung around for a few weeks.

Goanna - was coming inside the house! Only small - only 1200mm

This 120cm Goanna (4ft) was noticed entering the house! We scared it & it ran up a nearby tree, still a fairly small one. We have previously had a 2.5 metre visitor. The thing with a goanna is, that they can run much faster than we can, but they are very scared of humans.

Fast moving, it had a frog sticking out of it's mouth. 900mm long

Very fast moving, it had a frog sticking out of it’s mouth. 900mm long. It may have been a Taipan but I’m not sure.
