This female Brushtail Possum Joey was found orphaned and dehydrated in Sydney, Australia. 😦 Taronga Wildlife Hospital is working hard to get her healthy again! She will eventually be released back into the wild. Until that happens, this Roo Stuffy is a lot of fun, matey!
Judging from the multiple reactions of this little goober, I don’t think they mind a whole lot, am I right?
….called Edgar’s Mission. Ain’t it the truth.
Oh, and BTW…….
Jackie Sparrow is a flying fox who recently met actor Johnny Depp while he was filming in Australia! Adam Cox of Wakaleo Animal Channel sent us this terrific video, and images by Dean Morgan Photography/Rachael Wasiak.
Trish Wimberley from the Australian Bat Clinic (site appears to be wonky at the moment) introduced the pair while the latest “Pirates Of The Caribbean” film was shooting near her rescue center on the Gold Coast. Johnny expressed his love of bats and offered to sponsor the little one as it undergoes rehabilitation at the clinic, after losing contact with it’s mother during a heavy storm.
Donations can be made via their Facebook page! Remember: Never touch wild bats unless you are vaccinated and are trained to handle them. If you see a bat that needs assistance, call a local wildlife group as soon as possible.
How about some Sugar & Spice from Down Undah, c/o Aussie Photographer Extraordinaire Patrick J.? “Sugar and Spice are a brother and sister duo that arrived at our Sydney shelter earlier this week. Sugar (above) is the most confident of the two, and she was happy to sit and pose for the camera. Spice (below) is a little more timid, but he’s very affectionate and loves nothing more than to snuggle up against you. These two have been placed into foster care until they’re big enough to find their forever homes in a few weeks.”
That was the subject line of the email Sharon B-C (Western Australia) sent to us. And the answer is easy- not much! (Can’t flat say nothing else is cuter; Quokkas, ya know.)
“Maybe a Bebeh Bun displaying Rule #58? These photos were taken of some adorable baby bunnies at the Blue Hills Farmstay in Harvey, Western Australia. My son just LOVED them (understandably!) For your consideration for Bunday. Keep the cute coming!”
