Snakes really are beautiful creatures. Don't mind holding them myself.
Held a stunning olive python once - had the most exquisite face.
Terrific clear photo of this lovely one.
Cheers.

Also Blizzard, these creatures are majestic too. The lion looked a bit lonely frown Just needed a cuddle - yeh that would be a great idea on a 'starve' day crazy
Though I cringed a bit when you mentioned the lions have a starve day - don't they need to fed daily? Felt sorry for him.

I had a chat to the park workers re the starve day, apparently it keeps them much healthier as its a natural part of their existence. All of the animals looked very healthy at this zoo. Its a pretty big zoo for the amount of animals it has. I have heaps more vids and as time permits I will try and put a few more up.

I know this is not a photograph exactly for this forum section, but it is an image of a tiger I drew some time ago. She is done in pastel.
I'm on the look out at the moment for the odd image/pic which may be used as a subject base for my illustration.
Want to photograph some more subjects myself, but need a better camera. Has anyone got an idea, which I'm sure you have wink of a good camera, but not expensive?
Cheers wink

It more simulates wild conditions where the big cats will generally gorge themselves and then have several days without eating. Their bodies get quite ill if they don't have this seperation as the protein becomes excessive.

Thank you. I am not always so fond of our mob of roos. Times like when the BIG bucks come calling after the does and stand up at you when you are trying to work in the paddocks. Nor when they play chicken with you when towing the float. For some reason horses don't like you having to stand on the brakes. It has resulted in a lessening of the roo population before.

The roos can be pesky sometimes, I agree.
We had an interesting case, a few hundred metres from here once, when a big roo bounded across one of our main roads and into the passenger seat (through the windscreen) of a very surprised and ultimately freaked out bloke. They are very powerful creatures and such not to be tangled with sometimes crazy

Hi Matt, your image was far too large than the limit prescribed in the rules. If you still want to show the full version of any image, just use a link please.
Cheers.

Here's a couple I took recently. The bugs were on one of my gerberas, taken during a lull in the rain on Saturday, when the sun actually came out for a few minutes, lol! The other was taken at the Slade Point Lookout in Mackay.
