Uncle Interloper Down Under

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 3.16.57 PMMy good pal, Uncle Interloper had some amazing adventures when we went down to Australia. He’s been releasing videos of the fun he had.  He was attacked by an octopus at Queen Victoria Market, rode a roller coaster at Luna Park Sydneysaw some penguins eat their dinner at the Melbourne Sea Life Aquarium and he met a koala joey named Brooklyn (pictured) at Featherdale Wildlife Park.  See all these adventures, and more, over at his website www.UncleInterloper.com.
