Crikey ... we haven't got many pictures of our critters but from now on Mum's going to take lots of critter pictures when we are doing our travelling around.
These are pet possums Mum had a while ago now. They were twins. You'll notice she didn't have a very good camera then. She still hasn't but the cameras have improved a lot, aye?? When I say pet possums I don't really mean pets. They lived in the courtyard and came down every night to be fed. You could pat them and pick them up and everything but they weren't pets. Not like me ... I'm a pet!!!!! And a very nice pet, I might add.Their names were Travis and Dwight.
What about this one!!!!!! Bit of an old soak, aye? Likes a wee drop. His name was Fergus and he was still very young when this photo was taken. Beautiful, aye? Mum didn't let him drink any so don't worry. Funny but Mum gave them all male names .... I somehow think there must have been some Sheilas there too.
Sorry! Can't see the critter here .... that's Harri heading down a wombat hole. Crikey .. be careful mate .... those wombats might be slow but I've heard they can move when they want to and they have awful big claws. Did you know they do square poops? Don't ask me why but they do. I've seen them. Truly ... Mum and Dad read that they did square poop so we went looking around the wombat holes and we found square poops everywhere. They do it on rocks and it's to mark their territory or something. It's square so it doesn't roll off the rocks. Google it. Mum will take a picture of one the next time we see one. Won't be till our next holiday. There's none around here. Wombats I mean ... not wombat poops ... crikey!!!!!
Never think to take piccies of these blokes. There's heaps of them around. This is what our leash free park looks like if you get there too late in the arvo. Needless to say ... we don't go there late in the arvo.I have a bit of a bad reputation around roos. Their poop isn't square. Very ordinary looking but mighty tasty.
Hmmmmmmmmm! Just outside the back door of a place Mum, Dad and Harri stayed once. When this bloke stood up he was HUGE!!!!!!!!! Mum LOVES Roos ... she had a pet wallaby when she was a little girl. That was a lonnnnngggggggggg time ago. Sorry, Mum! His name was Chum. Not VERY imaginative, aye?? Crikey ... Mum's pet wallaby was called Chum ... don't know what this bloke was called. Arnie Schwarzenegger by the look of him. My Secretary had to google that to find out how to spell it.
Ok gotta go now. Time to pick up the Grandkids AGAIN!!!! Little boys turn today ....does it EVER end!!!!
I have to say, that one possum had a very good name. MOL MOL!ReplyDelete

Square poops! That must be a very interesting back door those wombats must have in order to produce square poop.ReplyDelete

We loves all dah cute animals - we hash possums oFUR here too, but dey looks a bit different from yers. When Meowmy wash little, her family raised four little orphaned baby ones by hand, and den when dey wash about 6 months old dey took dem out in dah wild and let them go so dey could grow up in dah normal possum way. Those 'roos ish amazin' to ush - dah only place yew can see dose where we lives ish at dah zoo - we will have to post some of our local critters soon fur yew to see.ReplyDelete
