Went over to Black Jungle today to see what's in bloom. First we looked inside the store at the poison dart frogs, the gouldian finches, doves, quails, parakeets and then for a treat we met three baby toucans that Richard has to feed by hand every hour and a half during the day for 6 weeks!! Their eyes weren't even open! Talk about dinosaurs!! They also have a pet kookaburra.

Then to the orchids. Gongora scent was yummy! Dendrobium distichum.
