    Wow! That was so neat to see all those pictures Keren and Alyssa. Thanks for sharing!! Australia definitely sounds like an awesome place to be! :) My brother badly wants to go there and swim in the coral reefs. He's hoping to go in a couple years.

    Did you take some of those pics yourself?

    Those are so cool!
    Keren or Alyssa, you should send me a Cockatoo, I've always wanted one, the ones over here are usually $600-$1000 ='(

    If you find a baby one, and 'domesticate' it for me? Lol.


    I looked Galah up on google, they are very pretty too, never heard of a Galah before though.

    I really like the Koala.

    Amos, its funny that you said that, cos I always wanted a galah and in the pet shops they are over $250, so instead I just figured I would catch a fledgling. Well, my galah (named Floyd cos he's pink, of course) was a fledgling when I got him and he had been hit by a car out the front of my house.

    Funny all this talk about wildlife, tonight I bowled over a roo for the freezer and a rabbit for the cats. Yum!
