This elegant beauty is Indah the komodo dragon! She’s yet to be a mother of dragons but we’re hoping one day that might change. Komodos are the largest lizard species in the world and although Indah is quite petite, we still think of her as a queen (khaleesi) – we bet you will too! Encounters are available to book with Indah and many other gorgeous animals if you’re planning a trip to the Zoo...

If you want to see Freddo today he’s easy to spot because he’ll probably be the one having a little dance with his keepers! Thanks for capturing this pic 'neeksandgaston' from Instagram!

Guess who’s leaping into Australia Zoo soon!? This yet-to-be-named cutie is currently taking some time off display to bond and hang out with his keepers but we're thrilled to announce that he'll be out saying g'day to guests in no time at all! Keep an eye on our social pages, as we'll need your help naming this little guy!
Rhinos are the second largest land mammal on Earth, which is why our gorgeous herd have plenty of space on our African Savannah to roam and graze throughout the day! In the wild, rhinos can spend up to half their day searching for vegetation and southern white rhinos are very good at it, with squared flat lips to help them pull up grass. You can imagine how much turf these guys go through!...

How gorgeous are saltwater crocodiles!? These guys are Australia’s apex predator and while their impressive set of pearly white teeth can cause damage to their prey, the real power they have is in those jaws! Saltwater crocodiles are ambush predators and strike out from the water’s edge using their closing jaw pressure of over 3,000psi to attack their prey! Thanks for the picture 'a4agarwal'...

How cool are echidnas!? Their beautiful spines come in all different shades of yellow and brown and are made up of the same stuff that makes our fingernails and hair, keratin! When they feel threatened, echidnas will burrow down and curl themselves into a ball using their spines as protection against predators. Thanks for the awesome picture BrisBen Photography!
