I couldn't find a thread focusing specifically on the unique animals found in Australia so here we go. Wild or captive is fine(if captive it would be good to be aknowledged). I'll start with a couple taken recently at a sanctuary called 'Tasmanian devil Unzoo'. It has some animals that are retirees from the Devil breeding program(which is designed to build up a population free from the deadly facial tumor disease) and its philosophy is to have as little in the way of enclosures or barriers as possible. A great philosophy and a great place.

Great shots, esp. the second Tasmanian devil where you can see the fangs so well.

Have you tried to put this a little bit more to low key so that it might look a little bit more dangerous?

Yep. I am currently working on the concept. Just have to get it right.

Working in a wildlife sanctuary gives me the opportunity to shoot lots of Aussie animals. Not strictly speaking 'wildlife anymore most of the ani.als here are rescued animals or animals like the Tasmanian Devils that are part of conservation and breeding programs. The two baby Devils are only a few months old and have been taken away from mum to give her a better chance with her other Joeys. And the Wombat was brought in after her mum was hit by a car and now helps us educate others about being more careful on the roads

Really nice and cute pics.

What FL was the wombat pic?
And did you shoot handheld or with remote?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Handheld at 10mm(on a 7d2) and a distance of a few inches. She does not care about personal space.

I have recently embarked on a long term project to document and shoot the wildlife(both native and exotic) in a recently declared 'land for wildlife' area on SE Tasmania. And to record any improvement or decline of the area. Very mich looking forward to the outcomes. This is my first shot from day 1. The wildlife is quite skittish in the area as it has been hunted in the past so it is full on with the Gillies suit and all.
