Kakdadu is FULL of wildlife. About 60 mammal species-marsupials and placental mammals-have been recorded in the Park. Kakadu’s many habitats support more than 280 species of birds, or about one-third of Australia’s bird species and to date, 117 species of reptiles have been recorded including the largest on the planet…the saltwater crocodile. Plus there are fish, frogs and insects!
We did an amazing sunset cruise on ‘Yellow Waters’ the huge billabongs in Kakadu and we saw so many birds and crocodiles. My fave bird is the tiny Red crested Jacana…a little bird that runs across the lily pads. They have the BIGGEST feet you have ever seen and the female birds run around mating with every big foot male they see and the moment they have laid their eggs they are off on the hunt again leaving dad to raise the chicks.
Here are some of DH’s photos…I really love the sunset:-)
