And Now…A C.O. First!!

Wanna know what this raging little maniac is? My first thought was “Quokka.” Nope. When I right clicked on the image, it said:

Pademelon.

Hey, Wikipedia! Help us out!

Pademelons are small marsupials of the genus Thylogale. They are usually found in forests. Pademelons are one of the smallest of the macropods. The name is a corruption of “Badimaliyan,” from the “Dharuk Aboriginal language” of Port Jackson (Sydney region.) Pademelons, Wallabies, and Kangaroos are very alike in body structure, and the names just refer to the three different size groups.

And THAT, my friends, clears THAT up.

Poll: Manta Rays- Cute Or NOT Cute?

You have to admit, these daggone Go Pro cameras can go..well, anywhere, and produce some stunning video. Like this video on Manta Rays. Normally not considered one of the Classically Cuter Species- this FAVE FRAME got me to thinking- Cute..or NOT Cute? (And note the Side-eye, please.)

FAVE FRAME!

“Doesn’t Get ANY Cuter Than This Aardvark..”

1408791585868_wps_1_MANDATORY_BYLINE_PIC_BY_JThat was the headline of the Sharon B-C (Western Australia) email. She’s right, you know. And do you know how many aardvark posts we’ve had on C.O. lo these many years? Care to hazard a guess?

THREE!!!

Outrageous. Gotta bump that number up starting RIGHT NOW!

Ladies & Gentlemen- a C.O. foist! The C.O. debut of a little maniac known as a QUOLL. Cuteporter Stephen sent us an article from WAToday.com.au, and it says that these little dudes are endangered. Not good. Anyway, these guys were discovered in Kimberley, WA (Western Australia.) The article also says “A Bandicoot was also detected by camera on Buckle Head.”

[A Bandicoot…at Buckle Head! Such names. What a place. Must go. -Ed.]
