Last time we were in Australia, we were fortunate enough to see some kangaroos in their natural habitat - hanging out in a field near the road. They weren't close enough to get good pictures, but it was still something I was happy I was able to experience. That same trip we went to a state part to see if we could find some koalas. We did, but they were so far up in the trees, they just looked like squirrel nests sitting up there.
Today we went to a sanctuary and were able to experience both animals up close and personal. This was amazing! Kangaroos coming right up and eating out of our hands or just wanting to have their ears scratched. The koalas are just like big stuffed animals - so cute and cuddly.
