Yes, it's called boggling They crunch their teeth together happily which makes their eyes vibrate too and pop in and out. It's adorable

I got mauled by a possum on my run (it was babby and fell out of its tree due to being poo poo at everything and thought I was a tree and tried to climb my leg).

In some families this tradition regularly fails because no-one remembers to put Baby Jee in the crib at the right time, and his absence is only noticed 2 weeks later when everything is being put away again.

My mother fondly recounts when baby Jesus was eaten by the cat and replaced with a jelly baby every year afterwards.

One year my brother and I couldn't find ours and he was replaced with a freshly carved Baby Cheesus. He got very sweaty in the Queensland heat.

It's true, kangaroo joeys will just plop comfortably into bags and pouches you offer them. So easy to transport.

I have no idea how people have the courage to do this.

I would trust the gentle fingerlips of a cria with the ears of a goblincatte more than I'd trust a cat with a mouthful sized bird at least. It makes a lot more sense when you realise it's a slowed down video of a cat smacking a bird.

I'm assuming dingos make terrible pets, but they really are a cool looking dog.

They are very independent and smart and have a tendency to ignore you if they think their idea of what to do is better than yours, and also tend to be very shy which can make them bad around strangers. They also have a tendency, more so than other types of dog, to gently caress off and join wild dog packs or live with wild dingos. It's not like a pet dingo is going to eat your kids the second your back is turned but they can definitely be more difficult than other domestic dogs. It's not helped by the fact that people in Australia and even more so outside Australia just get one to look cool or (internationally) to brag about having a rare breed and get in over their heads with a temperamental, independent dog that just doesn't fit well with a suburban or city setting. Kind of like Maremma lady. Sometimes they hear "doesn't bark" and go "Oh awesome! I'll go ahead and stick one in an apartment!" Hilarity ensues. (Hilarity does not actually ensue.)

A lot of families I knew growing up had mutts that were part dingo and some that looked even more dingo-y than the actual wild dingos. Some were well-trained and smarter than any pure-bred show dog, some were poorly socialised bastards, some hosed off back into the bush at the first opportunity, some were just regular dogs. My parents' current RSPCA Kelpie cross is quite clearly part dingo, with sisters and brothers from the same litter who looked so obviously dingo-y that Dad picked her instead because if she went wandering on the neighbour's property she would be less likely to get shot.

They're hardly the worst Australian animal you could keep as a pet, but they're definitely in the "challenging: maybe don't" tier of domestic dogs. You're probably better off donating money to a dingo sanctuary and watching cool videos of them online than getting one as a family pet.

Sadly, the pure dingo subspecies is basically lost these days - the entire species has at least partly gotten mixed with domestic dog via ferals.

This too. Dingo breeding programmes realised a way ago that trying to establish a strong purebred dingo population is near impossible now and has been for quite some time. Wild dogs in most places on the mainland don't fit the traditional idea of a pure dingo simply because they have been breeding for so long with so many other types of dogs. Even what were thought to be totally pure strains in Fraser Island, the NT, etc are now seen as "probably not, but pretty close to pure".

Our Maremma would do the same when my brother and dad or my brother and uncle would play fight or arm wrestle etc. He would come rushing over and bodily shove one or the other out of the way or give them a firm swat. You kids better knock it off on my watch! <>

Even in English it's bastardised vintage French for "sleepy" and everyone decided -mous at the end would make more sense as -mouse for obvious reasons. Dormouse, the Sleepy Mouse Pokémon.

My parents' old Maremma was adopted from his old terrible family after he ran away multiple times and they recommended Dad "just put a bullet in him" after he called them up to report a found dog. He was a massive white wolfbeardog who was also terrified to death of thunder. He could hear storms an hour away and managed to squeeze through doggy doors meant for a border terrier to get inside and ripped the people doors off their hinges in the process. Especially impressive as he was usually also terrified of going inside houses or even into the laundry.

Poor baby would huddle in a corner making sad noises and trying to look as inconspicuous as a dog the size of a small pony could. He got lots of cuddles and pats.
