Quoting the ZooBorns article, Taronga Zoo keeper Evelyn Watson (those are her legs above) says “She’s really learning how to be a Wombat. Her paws are already toughening up and she’s quite happy digging about on her own.”

How Does Australia DO IT?

They’ve got Wommies. They’ve got Kangaroos. They’ve got Koalas. And of course, toss in yer odd Platypus, Dingo, Quoll, QUOKKA, and Taz Devil. Notice…we left a biggie OUT. Are you ready for…

Banjo The Yellow-Bellied Glider Joey??

Didn’t THINK so. (Runs away yelling, waving arms- “And they named him BANJO.”)

Poll: We’re Gonna Do WHAT?

ResQtes Of The Week (Friday Sydney Edition)

tumblr_nmadp8RH8o1up2b4zo1_1280Yesterday we featured some ResQte Photos from Aussie Patrick Jones– photos he takes for the RSPCA in NSW. In his email, he said he had some other posts recently, and to choose any that “struck our fancy.” All I can say is–THESE sure did! (But- no Quokkas or Wombats, sorry.) Comments on each photo (taken from his site) are in the hovers. That’s Billy The Kid up top.

The Adventures Of Eimear: Dateline, Perth

Clipboard01It is hard to keep up with Eimear. When last we saw her, she was hangin’ out in Bali with the monkeys.

Now she’s back home in Australia, and- well, what do they have a lot of in Australia? (Besides Wombats, Koalas, and Zombie Spiders the size of a 1972 Ford LTD Wagon. Right! -Kangaroos!)

As before, her travels are chronicled here, and her blog comments about each photo below are in the hovers.

“This is probably getting a bit ridiculous (I’ve got that Pokemon mentality with petting unusual animals – GOTTA PET ‘EM ALL) but today I petted some Kangaroos,” she tells us.

“They are so so so cute, a cross between a bunny and a cow, I think.” [A bunny….and a cow. A BUNNY…AND….A COW. Hmmmm. -Ed.]

“They chew on the grass like cows but they hop like bunnies and have bunny teeth. And they’re super soft.”

Wombat Wednesday: Interview With The Wombat

GDAY2CUTEOVERLOAD2PatC.O. presents an EXCLUSIVE interview with Patrick, Australia’s #1 Wombat!

Patrick- tell us about your daily routine. What’s your day like?

“Being the Godfather of the Wombats, I have to keep myself in great shape so I eat plenty of fresh greens and loads of carrots and eat my daily grains. I’m not too keen on exercise so I get pushed about in a wheelbarrow alot of the time.”

Who do you like to hang with?

“My neighbours are a fab family of Wombats which include a Mamma, a Dadda and a wee baby Wom. The kid often looks to me for Wombie Advice, which I always say ‘be nice to visitors…don’t bite! And dig really big holes so the keepers have something to do….we have to keep them in a job!'”

Big famous guy like you- bet you get tons of fan mail. Do you have a girlfriend?

“Being the Wombassador of Ballarat I have a busy schedule saying hi to visitors and often meeting VIP’S, which includes Nicholas Cage, Kirstie Alley, Jerry Lewis and most recently Phil Ligget. I have been on TV lots too, so I don’t have time for a girlfriend.”

Did you ever get to meet the late legendary Steve Irwin?

“I never personally met Steve Irwin, however my Dad, Greg Parker who owns the park knew him.”

Anything else you’d like to mention?

“I will be 30 in August and I am looking forward to the celebrations. Big Bucky Tooth kisses XOXOXO to all my fans! I’m off for a snooze now, as I have to keep up on my beauty sleep!”


Special thanks to Patrick’s pals Julia L. and Jared M.
