Orangatang


 Mid afternoon and this Orangatang was found enjoying an ice-block treat, at Sydney's Taronga Zoo.





    Ooops, watch, you're losing some off the stick!

Lovely shot of the big fella. I tried to send you a comment re the meaning of feral... both your email addresses are now bouncing. Basically feral refers to introduced species that have escaped into the wild... so domestic pigeons, cats, foxes, Norwegian rats are feral but native animals are not feral in Australia... however where they have escaped in other countries (eg budgies in the US, wallabies in the UK) they qualify as feral.

Carole M. said...

thanks Maggie for your explanation on the word 'feral' relating to the Pigeon post on my other blog Snap Happy Birding. No idea why the email addy should bounce, but wonder had you tried using the comment form on either blog and this was happening?

Carletta said...

The hair, the face, his expression - you really caught the essence of this magnificent animal.
Loved your post Carole!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such a big guy and yet manages to look so cute and adorable as he devours that ice cream. Great photos.
