Diva down under! Mariah Carey and her twins Moroccan and Monroe explored a local wildlife conservatory in Australia on Tuesday, Nov. 3, which the singer comically revealed in several Instagram updates.

The songstress, currently on the Australian leg of The Elusive Chanteuse Show, visited the Cleland Wildlife Park in Adelaide, where she and her 2-year-old kids made a furry little friend. "Everyone needs Edmond the Koala in their lives!" Carey captioned a pic of her cuddling the friendly-looking marsupial.

The Grammy winner was joined by "dem babies" in another photo, with Moroccan adorably clutching his mom from behind while Monroe flanked her on the opposite side. Koalas weren't the only alluring indigenous animals witnessed by the family, though.

As seen in the Instagram video, Carey also hilariously confronted a mob of kangaroos. The clip shows the diva pointing to a throng of the two-legged native creatures roaming an open field. "Look at this! It's a fight!" she notes of the mob from afar. "Alright, which one of these needs a manager? Aside from me." (Carey parted ways with her longtime manager Jermaine Dupri this past August.)

The "#Beautiful" singer also spent time making friends with sea creatures this past weekend. "Mermaid + dolphins!!!" Carey captioned one shot of her swimming in the sea with the flippered mammals. In another, the chanteuse told fans she was "singing to the dolphins" below deck.

Noticeably absent from her trip down under was estranged husband Nick Cannon, although she alluded to her love life in one performance. The Emotions singer kicked off her Australian tour in Perth this past weekend, covering Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer's hit "No More Tears." The singer, who performed in the rain, belted the song's lyrics: "It's raining, it's pouring, my love life is boring me to tears, after all these years."

Us Weekly exclusively revealed in August that the couple have been separated for several months after eight years of marriage.
