Giving Some Love To Awwdorable Endangered Numbats

There are so many amazing animals out there that we don't know about. Rare and special creatures that, as animal lovers, we wish we knew more about. One of them is the Numbat. Numbats are insectivorous marsupials, they're adorable, they're fluffy, they looks almost mythical, and there are only about 1000 of them left in the world. 

They're an endangered animal in need of help, and we think one of the best ways to help them is to spread awareness about them and show people pictures of how incredibly adorable they are. Because no one can withstand their cuteness. Another incredible way to help is to read up about them and consider donating at Project Numbat. But for now, let's take a look at how amazing they are

Australian Dentist Creates First Prosthetic Foot For Koala

This handsome Koala certainly lives up to his name -- Triumph. Meet the adorable koala Triumph, who was born with a foot missing. Triumph was taken into care back in 2017 after being spotted with his dying mother in New South Wales. 

Vets soon realized Triumph was missing a limp, due to an inexplicable birth defect. They could also tell that his missing limp would sometimes cause him pain. His rescuer and vet nurse, Marley Christian, from Friends of Koala, began to dress Triumph's stump in dolls' socks and little booties. They have discovered that when doing so, it helped relieve some of the sensitivity Triumph was feeling. 

Marley Christian searched the globe for someone to make a prosthetic, unfortunately, no one was willing to take on the task. "We were told it had not been done and it could not be done," Marley Christian told ABC

An American company that specialized in animal prosthetics decided to take Triumph's case, but sadly, they could not manufacture a design that would comfortably stay on. It wasn't until Marley Christian mentioned Triumph's case in passing to an Australian dentist, Lismore dental prosthetist Jon Doulman, who then volunteered to help build Triumph a prosthetic foot himself. 

And he succeeded.

Precious And Awwdorable Spotted-Tail Quolls

Have you ever heard of the spotted-tail tiger quoll? Well, if you haven't, you're about to fall in love with them. They are so cute and criminally underrated and deserving of love. These cutie patooties are the second largest extant carnivorous marsupial, which, in simple words, means that they're tiny. 

Of course, you know why that's important information - tiny animals are extra cute animals and you will extra love them for it. They're also endangered, so it's all the more important to bring attention to them and their situation, and what's a better way of bringing awareness about them than fawning over their cuteness

Take a look at this ruthless criminal.

A boy in Victoria, Australia named Sam Box came home Monday to find a koala attempting to drive away with his family's Land Rover.

He took a bunch of photos of the suspect before he fled the scene.

"I opened the door and he just got out and walked away," said the boy.

Koala sightings are fairly common in the area around their sheep farm, according to his father, but they're not usually trying to steal their car.

The only way to properly honor this thieving marsupial is to caption him in all his glory! We'll post the good ones.



Even if he could even reach the pedals with his stubby little legs, his driving would probably look something like this.

This wallaby and his human are enjoying a nice race around the house. That is until he decides he's in need of some cold refreshment.

Sometimes it gets a little chilly down under and the Koalas need to wear sweaters. But I always get a little confused about the seasons in Australia, because summer in the northern hemisphere is winter in the southern hemisphere, and vice versa? Do I have that right?

Squeeeeee! Knowing that Koalas are capable of flopping their ears when they're tickled just took them to the next level of squee! I could watch this all day... maybe I will.

I would like to propose a new cuddling maneuver called "Koalaing". It is very similar to "spooning" except instead of being back-to-front, you embrace each other front-to-front in a happy, squeeful, cuddly mess - just like Koalas do!
