Tassie Devils!

Went to Australia Zoo yesterday with a bunch of furs. (Salutations and hugs to vivo for organising the event.)

I could angst about how I'm questioning whether I'm still a furry in spite of pulling that sob story earlier about not being able to socialise with non-furries, but that would be soooo boring. Let's talk about Tasmanian Devils instead. Along with quillblade who had the foresight to bring her camera, I ponied up for getting to meet two of their younger Tasmanian Devils. I got to hold Tula on a leash as you can see from the lj cut photo, which mainly involved me being led around by her. :) I got to admire her pouch and feel the vestigial fifth claw on her hind foot. I've seen Tasmian devils before of course but it was definitely worth it getting to see one up close!

No kidding. She does not look a thing like the Taz night light I have...

That must be a trick, then... just like the Rabbit of Caerbannog, which also looks cute and fluffy but really isn't. ^_~

Don't worry - Tassie devils can get pretty angry - Hell, their jaws can crush bone quite happily and when they get to something, there's rarely anything left, including the skeleton. They're like wombats but with black fur and an anger transplant.

Just don't piss one off. ^_^

Marko, you're as cute as the tasmanian devil. Thanks for the photo of that creature. I am so glad they don't live anywhere near me. Even on a leash.

Awww, so cute! You just made me realize that I'd never even actually seen a real one before! :)
