I'm back!

Tons of catch-up, but looking forward to it.

My assistant must have missed me; she sent me this.

Hoorah, you're back! And that is a pic of a very cuddly Tassie devil. Hang on... it's not your apartment's mouse, is it???

Did she send you the picture, or the critter? (Tasmanian Devil, isn't it?)

Melanie Avila said...

Your assistant tried to replace you?

Or was he/she illustrating his/her mood during your absence?

Welcome back!

P.S. Verification word (I swear to God): "pickdwi"

Is that a weasel? A dwarf black bear? A stunted wolverine?

Perhaps it's some kind of furry, clawed snake...

Behold, the sheer chutzpah (sp?) of the Tasmanian Devil. This one is a baby. They are born looking like that - ready to rip your face off. You know how some baby animals can walk within a few minutes of being born? Well, Tassie Devils are eating their first steak within hours of meeting the world.

They are carnivorous and will eat anything, including their handlers' hands. They make the most revolting noise that sounds like a chainsaw screaming for mercy.

Believe it or not, they get even uglier. A terrible facial cancer is wiping them out, which is very scary. There are breeding programs all over the 'mainland' to help keep the species going, because on the island of Tasmania, they're not looking too healthy.

Sorry for coming over all David Attenborough on you. Just about every baby animal in the world is cute, but in the Tasmanian Devil's case, Nature made an exception.
