“There have been a few violent storms and the parents just left the colony, leaving their babies starving to death. So a group of wildlife rehabilitators are rescuing them. They are an endangered species (grey-headed flying foxes).”

P1050228

“…It was quite an experience! We worked for 18 hours two days in a row so I’m tired! But it was all worth it because they are so darn cute (see pictures)!”

Spring is here, and our lawn’s got the dandelions to prove it.  Yaaay.
Never mind that, though; this CO Classic is prettier.

Today’s Contest: So Long, and Thanks for All The Prizes

Congratulations to yesterday’s winner of Pony Paradise: Gina B.

And finally, no National Pet Week would be complete without a salute to everyone’s favorite pet, the dolphin (what, doesn’t everybody have a 950,000-gallon swimming pool?).  Well, if you can’t have the real thing, you could win the next best thing, Dolphin Discovery, if you can correctly answer these four trivia questions.

  1. What movie thriller features assassins code-named “Alpha” and “Beta”?
  2. What brothers formed the core of the musical group Split Enz?
  3. What game commonly includes kickers, bumpers, plungers, and flippers?

People, please check out these fluffy little Tribble-like dudes. The Honduran White Bat! According to Wikipedia, Honduran White Bats have snow-white fur and a yellow nose and ears. These bats are tiny, only 37-47 mm long. They live in leaf tents in the rainforest, natch. I’d never seen these creatures before alert Cuteporter Terri H. informed us.
