Endangered Animals

Okay, we may be late.  But better late than never, huh?
We want to support our friend Louis' Endangered Animals Post.
First, for Kismet, we will show you the Orange-bellied Parrot.  It's facing extinction...sigh....such a sweet little birdie, huh.

And the Eastern quoll.
(our friend Charlie already told you about the
northern hairy-nosed wombat.)

Look at this little creature ,
(cover your ears, Madi)
also called the native cat,

isn't it sweet?
Well, it is pretty much extinct
(can something be pretty much extinct?
It's a bit like  a terrible tragedy......)

Anyway, it only lives in Tasmania now.  The mainland quolls
are endangered....critically endangered.

Don't you think they deserve to live WITH us?
Even if they are just good for those troublesome tiles in Scrabble?
As are quokka, below, who are not endangered.

We do!

(Note:  Please EXCUSE, this post was written under the influence
of Semillon Cabernet Blanc.)


  1. The bird is pretty and we've notice over the pond has a lot of beautiful birds that this side of the pond couldn't match. But the native cat is the cutest kitty I've ever seen. Does it put off a stinky order like our native wild black and white cat?

    Aroo to you,

  2. Crikey ..... great post. You should write when under the influence of that Semillon Cabernet Blanc stuff more often, aye?? I sure wish all those blokes weren't endangered. They are mighty cute. Look at all those little quoll blokes. Mum wants to kiss their little white spots. What a weirdo, aye?

  3. What a beautiful parrot and we love the pretty spotted native kitty!

  4. oh you have such pawsome animals in down under... I mean apart from stumpy tails and that spaghetti-snakes :o)

  5. I want a quoll OMCS it is adorable and I love the polkadots!!
    We have never heard of or seen them. Hugs madi your bfff

  6. SQUAAAAAAAWK! We can't lose a bird who dresses like that.

  7. OMD OMC OMB KISMET's Comment... She IS right though.
    We have never heard of a Quoll before... SAD that they are nearly gone from the world...
    We love Louis D Armstrong's Idea of bringing these Animals Insects and Birds to light. We hope that Blogville's Effort helps each of them to be able to live FUREVER.

  8. Ahhhhh we loved those pictures. stella rose

  9. Love that spotted thing. Pretty cool

  10. Whoa! That bird has such beautiful colors! And oh, your native is an interesting critter, isn't it?!?

  11. Such a pretty bird and those quolls/native cats are very interesting. And Mom adds that they have helped her on many a WWF game:) Never too late to help the endangered.

    pees: Ma wants to know if there is anymore wine.....

  16. We do too! That is the cutest animal - and it's terrible that it's almost extinct.

  17. I have never seen any kitties quite these adorable creatures. How sad that they only live in Tasmania now. How can this be that such precious animals are disappearing? So very sad ...

  18. We like that little spotty quoll and thanks for the help on Scrabble. You guys have the neatest birds in Oz.

  19. Drinking on the job, oh my!
    We just went for the Rusty Patched Bumblebee which is endangered.
    Thanks for being a friend
