Kangaroo Island (or KI as it is called by Australians) is a small-ish island located 2 hours south of Adelaide that is famous for its wildlife: wallabies, seals, sea lions, penguins, and of course kangaroos.
Mrs. Selfish and I ended up spending 2 nights in Kangaroo Island, and surprisingly only saw one wild kangaroo (crossing the street, oddly enough). We did, however, see loads of crazy Australian Pelicans.
Unlike their North American cousins, Australian pelicans have some peculiar properties – for instance, apparently they can’t dive underwater, they just float. They can also contort their bills into all sorts of shapes.
