Tasty King George Whiting
Catch of the Day 42cm whiting caught just an hour before in American River
Some people mistake them for Porcupines - but in Australia, we have egg-laying mammals called Echidnas. This one was photographed along a dirt road, rolled into a ball because he was scared of the passing car. Drive with care please - we love to protect our lovely wildlife. This is just one example of the very special native animals across Kangaroo Island.
Close to sunrise and sunset - please SLOW DOWN - because that's when our animals are most active.
Friends stick together! Enjoying another beautiful start to a day on American River, Kangaroo Island, just a short walk down from Sunrise on Falie to the water's edge.
