Things you don't see at home every day

Dead Kangaroos on the Side of the Roads

Unfortunately, we saw a lot of them. They are a real hazard for anybody driving at dawn or dusk, when they are more active. And most cars we saw in Western Australia have got big metal guards in front of the bumper, so kangaroos don't stand a chance really.

There are animal rescue centres that will take in baby kangaroos found alive in the pouch after their mothers were killed by cars.

And if you're in Alice Springs, injured wildlife can be dropped off at the Alice Springs Reptile Centre or Alice Springs Vet Clinic.

And for all reptiles, call the Snakephone (I kid you not) on 0407 983 276.
