Tasmania’s Wild Creatures~

Dolerite Columns rise up to 980 feet from the sea in Cape Raoul Tasmania.

Dolphins fish,

and fly,

off the eastern coast.

Echidna encountered on the trail. Echidnas, like platypus, are the world’s only egg laying mammals or monotremes.

He buries his face in the ground to hide from us!

Endangered Tasmanian Devil stares at the camera lens at Bonorong Wildlife Rescue, Hospital & Sanctuary, in Brighton Tasmania.

Tasmanian Devils are carnivorous marsupials once endemic in Australia, but now wild only in Tasmania.

Sleepy wombat at Bonorong. Wombats are herbivorous marsupials native to Australia and Tasmania. They are one of the rarest land mammals in the world.

Cheers to you from stunning Tasmania and her wild creatures~

  1. So that’s what a Tasmanian devil looks like! He’s a cute little thing–but aren’t they known for powerful jaws? I think I’ll admire him from afar. I sure hope they can get them off the endangered list.

  2. Bonjour mon Ami, Amie CINDY

    Ce matin je passe sur ton blog avec
    Des paroles de douceur, qui en fera pour moi et toi des moments de bonheur

    Ce sont de simples écris et des mots trouvés, qui te mettra des étoiles dans les yeux
    Prenons ensemble le temps et la joie d avoir des matins heureux

    Qu’ils fait bon se réveiller au petit matin de suivre en joie son chemin
    D’avoir eu des rêves plein le cœur

    Ce matin pense à aimer et oublier , les blessures du passé
    Pense juste la magie de la beauté du jour d’avoir une belle vie pour toujours

    Je viens juste te souhaiter une bonne journée par ces quelques lignes

    Bisous avec toute mon amitié
    Bernard

    • Thank you so much Felicia! I am quiet and still and keep the camera plastered to my face. Animals are curious about the lens. Happy post Mother’s Day to you my friend დ

  3. Thank you, Cindy, for the info and photographs. It’s true that we learn something new every day – or almost! Although, recently, there has been a certain ‘sameness’ about my apartment…Take care. x

  4. Lovely critters. I’m finding some new birdies looking out my picture window – between the grey weather. I found out where two chipmunks are hiding… one by the back rock near the creek and another right in my front lawn!

    Hope you had a nice Mother’s Day. My hubby made me Egg-bread toast and I did get a call from one of my ‘chicks’.

    Oh and today I saw the geese had their gosling in tow! I even saw an white egret near a take out place where we were picking up dinner. (Near the pond by our local library.)

    ((Hugs))

  5. When I was a kid, Horniman’s Tea came with ‘wildlife mammals of the world’ cards, and a book to stick them in. They were numbered 1 – 50 and had info in tiny writing on the back. My first was an echidna which I’d never heard of & didn’t know how to pronounce. Now I know what one looks like in real life, not just a rubbish drawing! RH

    • What an awesome idea for the tea! You were better educated as child than I, as an adult. I photographed and watched him for quite awhile and had no idea what he was! I had to got back to my computer and google him to find out! დ

  6. Look at those dolphins! What grace and skill.

    As for the land critters, your photos make me want to pick up each one of those animals and scratch their ears. Your photos have given them personalities…or perhaps it’s more accurate to say you’ve been able to capture their personalities.

  7. Stunning photos, Cindy! The Tasmanian devils are fascinating creatures and so cute to look at. It’s good connecting with you and thank you for following Eugi’s Causerie.

  8. Wow! Great pics! Never thought i’d see a sight like those huge pillars. There’s something similar to that in Ireland – and their heritage sights – but not as big as those you took pictures of.
