Aussie Adventure [Part 2/12]

DAY 2: AUSTRALIA ZOO & EATSTREETS MARKET

We spent the day in Australia Zoo paying tribute to Steve Irvin the crocodile hunter.

Much of the day's event has been posted before.. But I'll repost some and more on the EatStreets Market happening every weekend in Brisbane..

Help! A life-size crocodile just had me!
(True story is that since Australia is isolated from the rest of the world, things evolved)

Can you spot the koala?

In later part of my trip, the Aussie tour guide/driver I was with on my Great Ocean Road tour told us that since Australia is isolated from the rest of the world for millions of years, things evolved into funny creatures..

Like.. kangaroo... koala... tasmanian devils... wombat... which are all native to Australia.. penguins swam north from Antarctica so it doesn't count..  along the way, the crocodiles which are direct descent of dinosaurs, have and could grown so much in size that the replicas found in Australia Zoo actually represents the actual size that one could find only in Australia!

Amazing isnt it!?
