On Friday 7 October Wild Action Zoo visited Braemar College, and enthralled our students.
They met a variety of animals including two skinks and two snakes from different areas in Australia, a goanna, a crocodile, an eastern long neck turtle, quoll, betting, wombat, green tree frog and a koala. Physiological and behavioural adaptations of each of these animals was discussed.
Did you know that the long neck turtle has developed its long neck so that it can turn itself the right way up when it is stranded on its back? Or that animals in the north of Australia are generally smaller and lighter in colour than their southern relatives?
