RAUL!!!!!!!

I have a new possum hanging around, an old grizzly one. It bit Dr foofer on the shoulder. But, once again, neosporin did the trick, I can't even see the bite anymore and those were two LARGE fang holes.

The little babies are so cute. Is that a pygmy marmoset?

Me too!!!!! The tiny mammals are so amazing to me. I remember reading somewhere that when possums are born they are about the size of grains of rice!

Oh dear! Poor Foof!

It sure would have been nice if the photographer had said what the species was. I am curious, too.

Neat-o! What is the round thing in the picture? A bead? A berry? How big is it?

We tried to put something in the picture for scale -- in a major hurry -- but then realized that the object we found (a seed of some kind) is itself not recognizable. Sorry! The grout between the tiles might have been a centimeter thick, to give you some sense of scale. It was tiny!

Would post a pic of my sister's chinchilla, but I fear she'd be giant in comparsion to these cuties. Man, and I thought that was a small animal.

Here is a good shot from the breakfast table. Aren't they cute? These are all former enemies of mine who fell prey to my shrink ray.

Brrrrrrrrrrp.

You should post it anyway. I'd like to see it.

[Haha...I expected that. ]



Had to reduce image quality a bit, though. But she's cute anyway, isn't she, isn't she?
