Ruffled around the collar..



The second large scale shade canopy, companion to the numbat here, in the Connect South project is the frilled neck lizard. What a super cool sight to see when you arrive at Mends Street Jetty from Elizabeth Quay.. an exciting start to the zoo experience. If you pull the above shot in you can see how tiny the meerkat mob are in comparison. The canopies are designed 'to resist windloads of up to 45 metres per second, regional wind speed only encountered every 500 years in Perth' .. fingers crossed :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  7. I remember the numbat so this goes really well with it! Meerkats are small wee creatures so the scale is nice!
