Pugsley Bob Release Day

Photos of Pugsley Bob's release in the remote sanctuary area of the zoo.

Bob And Mel


Dry eucalypt woodland of river red gums and white box. We found evidence of echidnas here, so we decided it would be Bob's new home.

Mel takes Puglsey Bob from her old home. Jodie the Zoovet (r) and Mel's friend Lesley watch. Lesley came along to be a second shoulder for Mel to cry on.

The green tubes on her spines are shrink-wrapped plastic markers so she can be identified.
