While I was there I asked about the bats I dropped in to be tested for lyssavirus. Everything came back negative, so I'm a bit happy about that. No horrible diseases for me! I think it is fair to say woo hoo.
After the boobook I picked up the little kangaroo from his over-night carer and took him out to M., his new mum in Guerie, about 25km out of town. She'll be spending the next 8 months raising him.
M. tells me that we can't release Rexie in the middle of winter, but she has almost out-grown the cage I have her in. Sometime real soon I'll have to hand Rexie over to H. who has a larger echidna cage. I can hear Rexie now rattling the bars of her cage. She must be hungry.
