FABLE

Meet Fable, the second largest bird of Bunaboom Zoo. Only ostriches are bigger than the emu. Emus are the only birds with calf muscles. You can tell when she runs, that she really hustles. They don't have just one eyelid, emus have two. And, it's true, that the eggs that they lay can be really huge!

Fable is fantastic at telling a story, and her stories are never boring. If you would like to hear more, you are able. Sign up today for letters from Fable.

CAPTAIN

Meet Captain, the kangaroo of Bunaboom Zoo. Bouncing and jumping is what kangaroos do. A kangaroo hop is certainly unique, when he jumps he can leap as far as 30 feet!

Australia is where kangaroos come from. As a Zoo Ranger you can get to know one. To stay in the loop and keep up with what happens, sign up to get letters from the kangaroo, Captain.

VELVET

Meet Velvet, the cuddly koala of Bunaboom Zoo. She has a pouch just like that of a kangaroo. Koalas will feed on poisonous leaves - more than a pound daily, if you can believe. They never get sick, isn't that great? The poison doesn't hurt them, and they love the taste! 

Australia is the only place where, because they are rare, you can find in the wild a koala bear. If you want to hear more about this beautiful bear, Velvet would be more than happy to share.

THE PLATYPUS

PLATINUM

Meet Platinum, the platypus of Bunaboom Zoo. He has a bill like a duck and webbed feet, too. He scoops up bugs and worms with his mouth, no need for a bowl. And, he doesn't have teeth, so he swallows them whole. 

Platinum will collect anything he can find. He stacks and he stores things all of the time. Australia is where the platypus comes from. To learn more about one, you should ask Platinum.

DIGGS

Meet Diggs, the wombat of Bunaboom Zoo. He loves to run, and is pretty fast, too. Inside a burrow is where a wombat lives. A burrow is a hole in the ground that he digs. Diggs, like all wombats, is a herbivore, which means he eats plants, and nothing more.

​Australia is the best place to locate a wombat, in groups called a wisdom if you didn't already know that. You will learn things like this in letters from Diggs.

THE TASMANIAN DEVIL

DARE

Meet Dare, the Tasmanian devil of Bunaboom Zoo. She is a fearless daredevil when doing something new. She loves to do stunts, and that makes her risky. She loves to have fun, and that makes her frisky. Dare is nocturnal, so she sleeps while it's light, but then after dark, eats and plays all through the night.

She comes from a little place known as Tasmania - an island on the south side of Australia. She looks like a mix between a cat and bear, and if you want to know more, you will have to ask Dare.
