Dinosaurs come to Taronga – meet Alec, Dino Expert!!

I don’t know much about Dinosaurs but I have a mate that does! His name is Alec and he is 11 years old. He has loved dinosaurs and animals for ages – like lots of you! I have asked Alec to help my write some about dinosaurs here at Taronga.

Praying Mantis

Do you know what bugs I think are really cool and look almost like a little Dinosaurs? Praying Mantis!

Tiger Cubs love their Birthday presents!

At Taronga Zoo in Sydney, the three tigers cubs got the same thing! The keepers made toys and treats for them and I watched as Courtney, the carnivore keeper, placed the presents and a big box decorated like a birthday cake, in their enclosure! Lots of fun to watch the cubs getting into their gifts!

Get to know the Giraffe at Taronga Western Plains Zoo!

Every Giraffe has a different pattern of spots and markings on their skin and in their hair!
