~ @Treepol

 

That's a fine image, which truly looks like a roadside sighting.

 

The detail you've captured in the subject is outstanding, especially the feet.

 

As yours truly has never seen any possum, in the wild or in a zoo, it's a revelation to me that their feet are as shown above.

 

Thank you for posting this for those of us with no direct familiarity with Australian wildlife.

Hi all,

 

A few recent photo's from the Shark bay area in Western Australia.

We were lucky enough to find a Thorny Devil lizard (Mountain devil).

Great countryside and many contrasting colours.

Hi @Hads

I think you have a Great Egret and the gull is a Northern Giant Petrel. 

Cheers

Elaine

@Hads @ElaineAust   Yes, a Great Egret and an immature Pacific Gull (perhaps 2nd year bird).

Recently back from the south of Queensland and saw a lot of wallabies some of which went for the added cuteness factor of a joey riding with them.

This Australian Fur Seal hauled out on a rock shelf near my place whilst I was doing some photography.

It spent 2 hours enjoying the sunshine before putting back to sea.

I spent a month in Africa Sept' - Oct' 2016 and did not see a snake.

Less than 24 hours after arriving home I'm riding my mountain bike and on a track near my home I find this.

Lowland Copperhead eating a frog. ~ A quick snap with my iPhone.

We were staying up in the Great Dividing Range (c100km inland from Brisbane) which is where most of the wallaby photos were taken. We also came across this Goanna (I think a Lace Monitor) which posed nicely whilst tree climbing:

A better view of the turtle - initially thought to be a loggerhead but then identified by my son as a green.

This echidna was digging for ants at the roadside as we drove through Nubeena, a small town on the Tasman Peninsula yesterday.
