The wallabies escaped, but we have meerkats!


You looking at me?

Just outside Ra
msey is Curraghs Wildlife Park. Now, I have told you before of the escaped wallabies roaming the hillsides but not of the gorgeous baby meerkats. Yes, they are even cuter in the flesh and very entertaining. So far, no baby meerkats have escaped to go on a pub crawl in Ramsey, but I will keep a look out and produce photographic evidence if they do. On this island anything could happen, and usually does.



Island residents or the curious can check out the link below for info all about the Curraghs. http://www.gov.im/wildlife/news.xml

Just remember you can't take a baby animal home, as I keep being told!You can't stop a wallaby from following you though.........

I saw both these amazing creatures in South Africa but had no desire to take one home. Yet like the idea of one following you home and sure hope you take lots of photos from that adventure. ;)

One of the best places on the island to take the kids. The wallabies can be seen not to far outside the Curraghs if you look closely.

The kids favour the red panda. Cute photo. None of us have seen the escapees.

Love the idea that you can't stop a wallaby from following you home. :)

Meerkats do look very cute.

Nice to see you back. I am not sure about roaming wallabies but here in Leeds we do have meerkats, yeah! Interesting Google wanted to change meerkats to beermats.

These are some really cute creatures I haven't spotted in Africa and would have loved to.
