Some sad news from our capital, Canberra, on the passing earlier in the month of Humbekhali.
Hummer, as he was known to his friends, died peacefully of old age.
He had been a fixture at the National Zoo and Aquarium for many years.
Sleep well, our friend. You will be missed.
On a lighter note the National Zoo has one of the best ever picnic areas ever : playground equipment, walking tracks, barbeque facilities, and lots of fun things to enchant Little People and us more cynical types.
Might be time to start planning another trip to the ‘Berra.
