Sydney - Australian Museum : Dinosaurs!

Having seen them in countless movies (Jurassic Park, Night at the Museum), nothing beats 'em in real life!!!
Standing tall...
These creatures sure dwarf us humans, if we ever came across them...


Yup. Am sure anybody would be terrified of coming face to face with them!
The infamous T-Rex!
You probably can't even fill 10% of it's hungry body! And it'll go through you like... nevermind. Let's not think about that!
Guess which egg is a Dino egg and a chicken egg...
"Night at the Museum" coming to life?
And this is what the REAL Velociraptor looks like. Certainly not what Mr Spielberg would have you believe!


The End.

Sydney - Australian Musem : Gemstones!

Needless to say, this case had all the ladies drooling away... :)
I'll let the pictures do the talking... and make you very jealous in the process but it's certainly a very nice way of seeing all the different precious stones in 1 place.

Aren't they pretty?











Hmmm... I wonder whether this would have any effect on Superman?

The End.

Sydney - Taronga Zoo

It's been a really long time since we visited a zoo. And this one is located in Sydney's outskirts... So we took the ferry services that came free with our weekly ticket to cross over to the other side of the harbour.

And after a 5 mins walk...

One of the best things about the zoo is the view of the harbour from the opposite side...
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence #1
Peacock strutting away...
And who said you can walk in my way? Get out of my way!
Hmmmm... Now, where did I...
It's so hot...
Wallaby eyeing something?
Nope, just itching for a scratch.
Ooooh. BIG lizard to eat! Yum!
I don't like the way that crazy bird has been staring at me...
An explanation of the Wallaby.
Real? Nope. It's the only Platypus we could find that wasn't hiding as the are nocturnal creatures... pity.
No. They certainly don't resemble the Tasmanian Devil as depicted by Loony Tunes!
What's that?
Something's up ...
Oh... it's Koala feeding time. No wonder all those homo sapiens are so excited!

Koala: Why can't I eat in peace???
 View of the harbour from the opposite side... #2
This is definitely real, ok?
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence #2
Who's calling me?
I.. am ... your ... father. Search your feelings. You know it to be true...
Not that goats could care less... fathers, sons, daughters, mothers...
Wanna come into my humble abode?
Nah, I'll just stick out here.
Snow Leopard couldn't care at all and just wanted to enjoy the shade and hide from prying eyes.
Hey, can I come up there to where you are?
My son, how did you get to the other side?

The End.
