  • The African Leopard.
Scientific Name: Panthera pardus pardus

The most beautiful of the wild felids. Most leopards are light coloured and have dark spots on their fur. These spots are called “rosettes” because their shape is similar to that of a rose.  Leopards have rosette spots on the body and solid black spots on the legs, head and sides.  Unlike cheetahs, there are  no black facial stripes. There are also black leopards, whose spots are hard to see because their fur is so dark.

  • Did you know the Latin or scientific name given to European otters is Lutra lutra?. When both parts of a species name have the same word this is known as a tautonym. Other Scottish species that are tautonyms include corncrakes with the name Crex crex, red fox which is Vulpes vulpes and European badgers with the name Meles meles. ©Lorne Gill

  • Hello everyone! My name is ELVIS and I’ve been living here for about 10-days. As an older 5kg 10-month old joey, it took me a little while to settle in to my new life. I ran away and got lost once already, but I do love my bottle, so I decided to let the humans find me again so I could fill my tummy up. I love chest scratches and stealing snacks from other joeys. 
If you would like to learn more about me and be a part of my life growing up here, you can sponsor me for $25/month and I will write to you every month. Rae asked me to let you know my sponsorship is tax deductible. She said that’s something people like about money. I don’t understand that… can you eat it? Does it taste as yummy as everything else here does? Anyway… head to wild2free.org.au/sponsor-a-joey/ and pick me! Elvis! 🕺 🦘💙

  • SHAME FILE:
Name: Minnie
Sex: Female
Weight: 7.5kg
Age: 11m24days
Guilty of: Running Away From Home. After enjoying her midnight feed in the room, our perpetrator snuck out of the joey pen at 1am this morning while Rae was busy watching Morty. Shortly after, the sound of one smallish joey was heard hopping through the bush alone, seemingly having decided to run away from home. Hours later there was still no sign of her, which was a little more concerning at daylight when she hadn’t returned. Officer Mikey-Potato stumbled across the villain around 8am this morning, and bought her back to the station.
Punishment: Just look at her! She’s SO SO tired, she couldn’t play or eat with all her friends down the hill this morning. 😂💪💕🦘

  • The Sun Bear - also known as the Honey Bear due to its voracious appetite for honeycomb and honey.
It is the smallest of the bear species, each with unique chest markings.
It is now listed as ‘vulnerable’ after a 30% decline in numbers over the last 10 years mainly as a result of deforestation.
