Dreaming 🌊🐋🦈

The end of another strange week has us feeling a little bit like this guy. Koalas can be found in the wild along the coastlines of Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria. They live high up in eucalyptus trees in native bushlands and forests, usually perched between the forks of the tree’s branches. They survive on a diet of eucalyptus leaves and can eat up to a kilogram a day! Impressive, considering eucalyptus is poisonous to most animals. And this slumbering state is pretty natural for a koala because eucalyptus leaves are so low in nutrients that they need a lot of sleep, up to 18 hours each day. 📸 @globalmeander snapped this slumber in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.

A male satin bowerbird, in all his blue glory. He was gathering materials for his bower, and I think my presence annoyed him somewhat. 😌 . . . #birds #satinbowerbird #bowerbird #birdsofaustralia #australianbirds #australianwildlife #ptilonorhynchusviolaceus #bluemountains #bluemountainsnsw #bluemountainsaustralia

Meet the Bilby . Twenty million years ago, the bilby branched off from the bandicoot family, creating a marsupial that looks like a combination of a piglet, a rabbit and a bandicoot. Today, the bilby enjoys iconic status as Australia's version of the Easter Bunny. Each April, chocolate bilbies populate store shelves Down Under in an effort to raise awareness for the native animal that has lost some 80 percent of its population in the past 200 years. . #bilby #bilbies #marsupial #animalfacts #biologist #wildlifelovers # #australianwildlife #thewildlifebiologist #wildlifeseekers #wildernessadventure #majestic_wildlife

Giant barred frog.  #mixophyesiteratus Stuck down at Coffs for my course last week, I stayed on a property in a nearby valley. I was hoping to spend the night chasing Saltuarius moritzii but ended up poking about in a creek lined with Camphor. While having a chat with the owner about frogs (though he kept trying to stray the conversation away for some reason?! ), he mentioned that he "had learned the language of many frogs," including the barred but, "had no luck in seducing them." And thus concluded they were not on his land. Without skipping a beat, I wandered over, immediately heard two males calling faintly under the leaf litter, and eyeshined this beast up high on the opposing embankment. Within 10mins I returned to flaunt the discovery. He was impressed, and I earned the respect and admiration of all the lands people for my superior frog seduction techniques. I had only seen little 3cm juveniles of these giants in the past, so it was nice to see a big iteratus that lives up to their name.

Koala, sadece Avustralya'da bulunan, otobur, ağaçta yaşayan, keseli memeli, çok minnoş ve sevimli bir hayvan. Yuvarlak kuyruksuz gövdesi, kabarık kulakları, iri burnu ve kafası ile gerçekten çok sevimliler. Aborjin dilinde, 'koala' nın anlamı 'su yok' demekmiş. 🐨 🌿 Fasulye büyüklüğünde kör ve kulaksız doğuyorlar. İlk 6 ay annesinin kesesinden hiç çıkmıyor, sonraki 3 ay sadece gece annesinin kesesine dönüyor, 10.aydan sonra annesinden bağımsız yaşayabiliyor, ömürleri 13-18 yıl. 🐨 🌿 Koalalar sadece okaliptüs yaprakları yiyerek yaşamaktalar, günde 1kg yaprak yiyebiliyorlar, yanaklarındaki torbalarda acıkınca yemek için yaprak saklamaktalar. Serinlemek için ağaçlara sarılıyorlarmış, insanlar gibi parmak izleri de var. 🐨 🌿 Sevimli oldukları kadar da tembeller, günde 20 saat civarı uymaktalar, bilim adamları bunu okaliptüs yapraklarının besin değerinin düşük olmasına, hareket için yeterli enerjiye sahip olamadıklarına bağlıyor. Genellikle su içmeyip, su ihtiyaçlarını yapraklardan karşılıyorlarmış, bizim gezdiğimiz alanda su kapları mevcuttu. 🐨 🌿 En büyük tehlikeleri Klamidya  adlı virüs, bu virüsler çoğalmak için başka hücrenin biyokimyasını kullanan küçük parazitik bakteriler. Çok fazla stres altında kaldıklarında bu virüs bulaşma yöntemi ile bedenlerine yerleşmekte, üreme sistemlerine, enfeksiyonlara ve körlüğe neden olmakta. 🐨 🌿 1920'lerde kürk ticareti için vurulmuşlar, şimdi ise tarım alanı yaratmak için okaliptüs ağaçlarının buldozerlerle yıkılması sonucu çok sayıda koala yıkılan ağaçların altında kalarak can vermiş. İnsanoğlunun bu gezegeni  sadece kendi yaşam alanı sanmasının acımasız vahşiliğinin sonucu bence. 🐨 🌿 Bu yıl ki orman yangınlarında 25.000'den fazla koalanın öldüğü tahmin edilmekte. Bu yangınlarda annesini kaybeden bir yavru koala, kendisine verilen oyuncak ayıyı annesi zannederek sarılmıştı, görüntüler gerçekten ağır duyguluydu. 🐨 🌿 Ben bu sevimli koalaları çok sevdim. 🐨 🌿 #tasmania #australia #discovertasmania #koala #koalas #koalabear #koalalove #bushfiresaustralia #australiafires #australianwildlife #koalasofinstagram #australianbushfires #savethekoalas #koalabears #australiananimals #climatechange #koalababy

Our neighbours intentionally send their fluffy dog out to bark at the birds. What i never understand is their committment to be bad behaviour, whats is sometimes funny is how the birds, particularly the brave alpha males interact with the dog. Sometimes intrigued and sometimes challenging. I find it interesting that they have a need to own and possess an animal while viewing our involvement with the birds with disregard and distain. We don’t possess these birds they are free to come and go and admittedly some are here for food but they are the first to leave when the supply stops. The ones who stay and have interactions.. well thats gold. They genuinely want to hang and often fall asleep they feel so safe with is. There is a trusted relationship that is incredibly rewarding that they will never know as their dog has the need to stay as a capture, he knows no freedom! #birdhaters !

The best type of cuddles 🐨💕 Lilly, Shelley and Maggie sharing their favourite toy 🥰 . . . 💕🐨🍃💕 If you find a joey alone please do not try and raise it yourself. You must hold a specialist permit for small joeys to care for them and they require specialist knowledge and the correct formulas. . . . Please look out for abandoned or orphaned koala joeys, and sick or injured koalas.
