I think I just might become a vegetarian! I have been moving in that direction for awhile now -- and this summer the wild turkeys have arrived in our yard -- no Thanksgiving bird for me this year  question 


Resourceful possum! Seems to be a baby/young adult.

Bunnings is a national chain of hardware stores that also sells furniture, landscaping/gardening supplies, and has 'coffee corners' for light meals before or after your DIY class.

I first heard about these creatures being capable of taking down hummingbirds a couple of years ago,I couldn't believe it!

Mtierney, have you read about the living kitten with two faces? Wow!


gosh no, Joanne, there are so many oddities of nature on FB, I missed that. BTW, how is Peggy, she is not on MOL from what I see.

Peggyc is really busy! cheese She’s still singing, and doing pottery, and active on the Facebook MOL (I forget what it’s called).

Put it with the chooks!  

After all, weren't chooks originally lizards which evolved to become ... chooks?

They feed dead chooks to the crocogators in our reptile parks.  Is that case of eating your own?
