all these sad movies based on books coming out that i don’t care for but where’s my Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell? Where’s the Night Circus and the Half-Made World? Who do I call to beg for Zamonia?
TRIVIA TUESDAY - Did you know a black panther is typically a melanistic color variant of any Panthera species?
Black panthers in Asia and Africa are leopards and black panthers in the Americas are black jaguars.
There have been no confirmed reports of black or melanistic cougars/pumas/mountain lions to the best of our knowledge…
Boodie (Burrowing Bettong, Lesueur’s Rat Kangaroo)
The Boodie, scientifically named Bettongia lesueur (Diprotodontia - Potoroidae), is a small Australian marsupial. Like a little kangaroo, the Boodie has well developed, muscular hind limbs and short muscular forearms. The head is small with a pointed muzzle, short rounded ears and beady black eyes.
Boodies are listed as Near Threatened because its extent of occurrence is small and it is known from just 6-8 locations. It was formerly widespread in central, southern, and south-western parts of Australia, but the species was eradicated as a result of predation by introduced animals. However, it persists in insular populations on Bernier and Dorre Islands in Shark Bay (Western Australia) and on Barrow Island off the Pilbara coast. In 1992, after an absence of 50 years, the Boodie was successfully reintroduced to the Australian mainland.
