Dinosaurs, echidnas and bats, oh my
With the school holidays coming up, Taronga Zoo has brought some prehistoric guests back from dead. That's right, the Dinosaurs in the Wild display is now open and ready for business. They're free to see with your admission ticket and are only here for the summer holidays.

Not only that but Taronga Zoo is now home to a brand new echidna puggle, which is possibly one of the cutest baby animals I have ever laid eyes on. It's also the smallest puggle any of the nurses have ever seen.

[ADVERT]Keeping in touch with Halloween festivities, Taronga Zoo welcomes three ghost bats who prefer to live a nocturnal lifestyle. But don't let that worry you - the zookeepers have set up an exhibit with simulated moonlight to keep these bats active while you visit during the day. And here's a fun but slightly eerie fact for you: ghost bats are the only carnivorous bats in Australia and the largest carnivorous bats in the world!
