Unlike his feathered friends, Featherdale's Ngukurr is faring pretty well with the heat actually.
It helps that the 4.5-metre Saltwater Crocodile is cold-blooded and has a body temperature similar to the surrounding air, land and water.
He also has his own cool pool.
"It's about 29 degrees which also his body temperature, so he's fine," Jason Hawton, the senior keeper at Featherdale Wildlife Park in Blacktown, said.
It was reaching 38 degrees when the Sun caught up with him this afternoon.
"That's the perfect temperature for him, so he won't move all day," Mr Hawton of Mt Druitt said.
We also noticed a Whistling Kite panting, but Mr Hawton said this was not uncommon.
"Most of the birds of prey can all handle the heat," he assured.
"Panting is just their way of cooling down."
Established on seven acres of land originally purchased by Charles and Marjorie Wigg in 1953, Featherdale started as a poultry farm.
Today the wildlife park boasts more than 300 species of Australia’s diverse wildlife, including emus, kangaroos and koalas.
