Meet The Dibblers

Before I saw this on ZooBorns, I thought that perhaps “Quokka” was the funniest animal name. But that was before..

The Perth Zoo bred some Dibblers and then “released them to a fenced area at Whiteman Park, giving them a chance to establish in the absence of foxes and cats, which have likely contributed to their decline in the wild.”

Why Aren’t There MORE Coatimundi’s On C.O.?

Really good question, since these guys are as QTE as they come. Derek M. provided us with a most excellent Sloth video yesterday- so today he’s back with “The Baby Coati Hunger Games: Costa Rica.” Roll ‘em, Derek.
