OUR ANIMALS

Some of our animals at the farm.

CLEO

An amazing fact is that some snakes lay eggs and some don't, and Cleo the 2.5 meter Cape York Carpet Python is actually looking for a partner which is going to be difficult. Why? Well, it seems her species lives in the tropical climate of northern Oz. Cleo is possibly the laziest snake here at the Funky Farm but she loves human company too.

    CRIKEY

Measuring in at 1 meter, 7 year old crikey is not even a quarter of his size as yet. Salt water crocodiles can get to 7 meters long and they are not a reptile you want to mess with. Salts are so smart, quick and quiet so it's best you always keep your wits about when in there territory. Crikey has been at the Funky Farm for almost 2 years and is a must-see when you visit.

   BOBCAT

Bobcat

Is our Tasmanian Pademelon . He is at times very friendly. You can interact with him, he loves a cuddle. Sam hand raised him and he was living in the bathroom until he would attack Chris when he got out of the shower and has since moved to a beautiful enclosure

WADE

Wade

Known to be quite playful is our common wombat. He is 2 years old , loves a cuddle and a run around with the dogs. He has to come inside at night as he doesn't like sleeping outside.

KEVIN

Also known as a goanna, Kevin is a lace monitor which are the second largest monitors in Australia growing to over 6 foot. There are about 30 different species of goannas, 25 of which are found here in Australia. Kevin loves to eat insects, small rodents and small eggs. Kevin has large claws and is always looking to get to higher ground when feeling threatened. However it's best to leave Kevin's family alone if you see them in your travels. He is currently living the life of luxury in our house and is not on display.

Leah

The gorgeous Leah is one of 3 Koalas here at the Funky Farm. She is in her teens and is the boss of our koalas.

She is most happy sitting up high on her branch eating her favourite silver stringy bark leaves.
