    This morning I visited Cleland Wildlife Park and I wanted to provide an update on a range of changes that have been made at the park since the last posts were made to its section of the forum.

    - The big news and the reason that prompted this mornings visit is that the park now has a thorny devil which has gone on display. It has been there for a few weeks and is eating well and healthy. The devil is located in the ocean to outback house in a mixed exhibit with crested dragon.

    - A butterfly exhibit was opened last year and is stocked with a range of local species. This is the former tawny frogmouth aviary which has been converted to house the butterflies.

    - A range of insects have gone on display in the first section of the ocean to outback house including spiders, stick insects, scorpions, beetles, etc.

    - A new frog exhibit has been built in the room in ocean to outback which formerly housed the mixed lizard exhibit. It has 6 tanks for a range of species including green tree, perons, southern brown tree frog and southern bell frog.

    - The former stick nest rat exhibit is now home to southern brown bandicoots.

    - The former fat tailed dunnart and pygmy possum exhibits are now home to a range of lizards. Both these species are no longer held.

    - A new bird aviary has been built near the tasmanian devil exhibit which is home to a range of cockatoos which are used in encounters.

    This is in reference to Peron's tree frog (Peron's Tree Frog), typically when talking about them I just refer to them as peron's but likely should have clarified for the post.
