Trash-Loving Screaming Animal Memes

Trash-loving? Screaming animals? You know what that means.... raccoons and possums! If you didn't know, now you know. When it comes to our trash-loving and screaming friends, we can't help but get excited. Raccoons and possums seem to have so much in common and nothing in common at the same time. One thing they do have in common is our love for them and their weird, very weird ways. 

Oh, plus, they have hilarious memes that are so heckin' relatable it's a tad bit frightening.

Almost Wiped Out By Bushfires, World's Smallest Possum Discovered

After the horrendous bushfires in Australia that burnt almost half of the island, killing a significant number of wild animals, we finally have some good news! As reported by ABC news, in the recovery efforts, the conservation group Kangaroo Island Land for Wildlife found a tiny creature that they feared might have been wiped out by the fires - the world's tiniest possum, the pygmy possum.

These tiny guys who weigh no more than 7 grams and who can easily sit on top of your finger are found in very few places in the world - that is, if you can find them at all. Their size not only makes them hard to study, it also makes them quite elusive little beings. 

Pat Hodgens, a Fauna ecologist, said that the little possums' discovery is really exciting, and we agree! "There's only really been 113 formal records of the species [ever on Kangaroo Island]," he told ABC news. "So certainly not very common and, obviously, the summer bushfires burnt through much of that habitat that species had, but we were certainly hopeful that we would find them."

Their conservation group is going "to try to do everything we can to protect them to ensure that they hang around during this pretty critical time". He added: "It's very important now because it is kind of like the last refuge for a lot of these species that really rely on very old long, unburned vegetation."

There are still many other rare species who have not been spotted after the fires, but this is wonderful news, and we wish Mr. Hodgens and all the other people doing amazing work luck with finding all the species they're looking for. And sometimes, in Australia, people manage to find species they weren't look for

Shee was in for even more of a shock when she found out the intruder hadn't been looking for valuables to steal...because it was actually a cute possum. turns out, the poor guy somehow found himself trapped inside her office and while trying to find a way out, trashed the place: "It wasn't until I went to check my computer on the far side of the room that I noticed a fluffy little face staring at me from behind the computer," Blakeman told BuzzFeed News. "And that's when I also noticed the toilet droppings and urine everywhere too. It all made sense." Not surprisingly, the little intruder became an instant meme.

Couple Captures A Possum Hitching A Ride On Their Puli Dog

Well, there's something you don't see every day! Sally and Jon Watkinson, from Melbourne, Australia, found a baby possum nested in their Puli dog's fur, after going out on a walk. The possum decided to hitch a lift on her dog's back, for unknown reasons, but it sure makes a bizarre and funny story to tell! 

In their viral Facebook post, they mentioned that their dog barely noticed the possum was there. It was totally cool, calm and collected and wasn't barking frantically or showing any other signs of annoyance.

Yet the strangest part of this story has yet to come... The couple went to the vet with their dog and possum attached and got that taken care of...but the exact same thing happened again the very next day! A new baby possum attached to their dog's back, and they wrote that the sight, "almost made the vet nurse fall off her chair." 

Pretty strange, huh?

The only difference was that the newest baby possum was a baby male and not a female like the one the day before.
