Not only is the Kangaroo Conservation Center of Dawsonville, GA home to the largest population of kangaroos outside Australia, but it's also the dwelling place of the world's largest pigeon.
Here he is, in all of his pigeon glory: the Victoria Crowned Pigeon. He's got beady little red eyes, a blue mohawk, and he was so ridiculously huge that I wasn't able to capture his entire body in one photograph.
Not far from the Kangaroo Conservation center, here is a lizard I encountered going for a hike by Georgia's tallest waterfall. Lizards need exercise too. And harnesses.
