The rainbow lorikeet is aptly named. Its head is violet-blue, upper breast is orange red, the abdomen is dark blue margined with some red and the back is bright green.
In a cute video released by The Australian Reptile Park, Mammal keepers are seen participating in their daily pre-school feeding session where they sit down with each joey for their lunch together!
The perentie is Australia’s largest lizard reaching over 2.5 metres in length. It has a long neck and a stout, robust body ending in a long, tapering tail. The colour is yellow or cream with tawny brown rosettes edged in dark brown on their back and they have dark limbs with white spots.
The eastern blue tongue lizard is one of the most familiar reptiles in Australia. Large specimens may reach 60cm in total length. The legs are small and can often be overlooked, a situation which sometimes means the harmless bluetongue is mistaken for a snake.
