    RAUL!!!!!!! :cry:

    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. :bugeye:

    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! :bugeye:

    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. :rolleyes:

    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.

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

    I wonder if the "seed" in chroot's picture was a papaya seed.

    Yes, it's beautiful. It's just too sad that my country held almost 50% of the world chinchilla fur production some time ago. :frown:
