ThrowBack Thursday February is Kangaroo Month

ThrowBack Thursday  February is Kangaroo Month

We are stealing a bit of vacation time in Florida, just to escape some of the cold. We spent the day at Buch Gardens in Tampa and among the animals we saw were a bunch of lazy kangaroos.  We were there shortly after afternoon feeding time and the Z'ss just caught up to the animals.

The white fellow above is a white wallaby, or an albino, which is very rare.

This little guy decided the regular lunch hour was not enough and came back for seconds. 

And this Koala is the justification for the Throwback Thursday as it was 3 years ago in February when we took this photo at a zoo in Australia.

Great photos, Ed. Must have been a terrific trip.

I'm ready for a vacation but nothing in the works right now - perhaps this summer.

Jeff Dowler, CRS   We are still on the trip and will be back in the freeze by early March.  The trip down under was incredible.

Hi Ed Silva - What a fun adventure going to the zoo. But most importantly, getting out of the cold weather.  Thawing out at Busch Gardens is a great idea.

I have a friend who was born and raised in Australia.  She sent me a picture of a view from her family's front porch, that had about 7 or 8 kangaroos hanging out under a tree about 50 feet away.
