October 06, much anticipated Roo Day!

Allan found out about the Kangaroo Farm before we left Ontario, his mandate was to get there before it closes for the season Thanksgiving weekend, and take a photo of him petting one.       Made it!  Love the “use common sense, we all know what 6 feet looks like.”

The entrance person tell us where to find the Sugar Gliders, we don’t even know that they are!

Come early their website advises….

At the entrance, they give you a bag of popcorn to feed.  These guys woke up!

From the first time Allan learned of this farm, he wanted to pat a kangaroo.  We thought they’d be a lot taller, Allan improvises!!More patting!  Roo Pat

         Allan is again disappointed, we didn’t see a gator 

                                Next up…Wallabies

Allan gets photos with the cuties… He was a little nervous petting her as she was with joey but it did go well.

Interesting fact:  All wallabies are marsupials or pouched mammals. Wallaby young are born tiny, helpless, and undeveloped. They immediately crawl into their mothers’ pouches where they continue to develop after birth—usually for a couple of months.

                                               I get the world’s largest rodentThey walk around single file with the one in the back touching the front ones bum.

Breakfast time!

Breakfast for bunnies 

       and for the skunk

Last stop, exotic birds & Sugar Gliders 

      Sugar Gliders

Interesting fact:  The sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass. The common name refers to its predilection for sugary foods such as sap and nectar and its ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel.

As they are nocturnal, the handler keeps him in the blue pouch taking him out just to show and back in he goes.

And that concludes our visit to   

Tonight’s dinner, Keto Pizza – yummy
