Wordless Wednesday- The wildlife of Fiji


a myna bird hanging out on our foot bath.

looks funny flicking on my camera between the 2 photos!!

a goat

octopus

yes that is a sea snake.

the only really cool thing I saw- the gecko!!
I was so excited at the thought of seeing some awesome wildlife in Fiji, sadly the cool stuff heard we were coming and hid!!  Seriously!!  Not an exotic bird or turtle in sight!!  Apparently turtles had been spotted on every snorkeling trip except the one the HOTH went on!! 

Luckily I saw the sea snake in the morning of the last full day we were there so we spent the afternoon in the pool.  I have never moved so fast in my life when that slithered behind me!!

The geckos were everywhere and pretty cool.

Next week in my trip down Fiji lane is some picturesque scenes from the island.

Linking up with My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday!!

  2. Thats a spiky looking otopus, and I wouldn't be going anywhere near the sea with snakes in it. It camouflages well doesn't it, sneaky snake.

  4. Funny story about a goat...When I was pregnant DP and I were going for a drive and I was staring out the window while he was talking about something boring obviously. He must have asked me a question because next minute he was saying 'did you hear me?'. My response 'Oh sorry I was distracted by the goats'. Now whenever we are driving and we see a goat he says of look goat, in a completely sarcastic tone.
