Dunnarts are the tiny warriors of the Australian outback
There are 10 species of Dunnart. This is the fat-tailed dunnart Sminthopsis crassicaudata
Although they're tiny and shy, they love fighting with deadly spiders!
Their favourite breakfast is a "juicy" scorpion, sting bitten off
They also love biting human fingers, the swines!
The dunnart breeding season is so intense ... lasting about 2 weeks ...
That afterwards the males die of exhaustion. A new generation replaces them!
Some idiot introduced the European Red Fox to Australia. This, and the common house cat, are hunting the poor little darlings almost to extinction.
WISHING Y'ALL A CHEERY WEEKEND.
IF IT CAN'T BE CHEERY THEN MAY IT BE PAINLESS.
IF NOT PAINLESS THEN MAY IT BE TOLERABLE.
TAKE CARE EVERYONE ;-)
