We are living in and travelling through a country that has the most deathly animals: venomous snakes, spiders, crocodiles, sharks and jellyfish. How are we doing so far? Here is the result of a one week journey to the Sunshine coast.
We came here thinking koala’s and kangaroo’s could be seen behind every corner. As probably most other Europeans do. Well, they are either very good hiders, or we are very bad searchers. Since the only ones we have seen so far are the following:
So enough about what we did not see. Here is what we did see. There is a lot of wildlife in Australia, especially the bird life is very colourful and abundant.
The other animals which we saw on our trip along the Sunshine Coast, but that where too quick for our camera, are: dolphins, a turtle, a crab, a lizzard and finally also a possum. I had seen a possum before and got very excited about it, until I discovered that the possum is what the impala is in Southern Africa, but the rest of the family had not yet. Note: the kids were at least as excited as I was….
