The Ultimate Aussie Bachelor

16 Jan 2015 14:47:40

The Ultimate Aussie Bachelor

Yes, it's almost February and 2015 is the year you stopped celebrating "Singles Appreciation Day" and started celebrating the day of L.O.V.E! So our animals want to know, won't you be my Valentine?

Introducing bachelor number one (drum roll please)... Rex the Saltwater Crocodile

Rex is the original bachelor. With a degree in 'lady wooing' this Sydney local has admirers all over the world. His laid back attitude perfectly contrasts his bulging muscles and tough exterior. Rex would describe his perfect date as sunbaking followed by a gourmet chicken lunch by the water at Darling Harbour.

Bachelor number two (double drum roll)... Bruce the koala

Bruce is our youngest bachelor and has learnt the majority of his "moves" from Rex. Bruce's best (and worst) quality is his ability to sleep all day as well as his ability to entertain children throughout the school holidays. Bruce's date night idea includes eating Eucalyptus leaves and staying in with the movie 'Australia' to sleep through.

And last but not least... Princess the Southern Cassowary (yes despite the name, he's a he)

Princess is our most beautiful bachelor. As his name suggests, Princess looks after his appearance and loves to keep his feathers clean and colourful. Princess's perfect woman would feed him meals at 12:30pm daily and describe herself as 'fierce'. Princess hopes his new 'bird' will enjoy spending time with the world's deadliest bird (himself) in the best attraction in Sydney.
