How interesting, Tilt !

Actually I did think that your jackels had quite large ears for foxes, but they do look very similar !
I saw some wolves at a wildlife park recently - not an ideal place for them , but they had a large enclosure. Beautiful animals with very gentle intelligent faces. The snow leopards were amazing too.

Cute possums ! We don't have those in the UK.

Hello Tilt,

Call that a possum?

This is a possum!

We currently have one of these and a mischevious offspring who is living in our (now blocked off) open fire-place. As soon as the little fella is weaned, we are putting a possum box in the large tree in the yard and putting a grate over the chimney. The little fella has got into the house twice and caused chaos at about 1.00 a.m.

That picture was a baby. I am sure they get bigger in Oz but then so do your spiders and other creepy crawlies.

This can give you a good idea how large Americam (O)possums get

Aaargh ! So cruel to hold them by a leg or the tail ! I wonder if the humans would have liked to be dangled in such a painful and frightening way by a huge alien creature.

I've often wondered about the viability of a possum export operation.
You see here in NZ they're a 'pest' they just love to munch on all our endangered native bush.
In Australia on the other hand, they're a protected species.

Hi Mike,
Indeed they do like NZ. I like it there too!
But...
Do you really want to keep them??

Oh dear, I think I caused Tilt to change his avatar! Leave it to me and my glitter...
At least everyone knows now how to make his/her own smiley now though.

:hug: :rofl: :hug: :rofl:
:woohoo: :juggling: :woohoo:

For sure this post is only slightly annoying.

Hi Tilt,

Oh well, if it's an avatar you need then you've come to the right place.
But your new one is so cute, I have to advise you to keep it.

Best,
Laura

Oh, indeed. It is manly! Forget that cute remark. Such a creature certainly does things in a manly manner.
It's all kinds of other things like furry and stuff.

Hmmmmm, that smiley shows a foot where our mouths normally are...

Best,
Laura
