Sunda Flying Lemur (Sunda Colugo) via mymodernmet: Found throughout Southeast Asia, it is not a lemur nor does it fly, but rather it glides and leaps in trees. Because its gliding membrane connects from the neck, extending along the limbs to the tips of the fingers, toes and nails, this skillful climber is helpless on the ground. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunda_flying_lemur #Sunda_Flying_Lemur
Perth Zoo has managed to breed two baby echidnas (known as puggles). Only 24 puggles have been successfully born in captivity, and these new-borns represent the first successful breeding of zoo born echidnas. Breeding echnidnas is notoriously difficult so the information gathered from these infants as they grow will be vital in learning more about the reproduction of this species.
Raymond, a tiny koala joey was found abandoned beside a road west of Brisbane and is being nursed every three hours with a special bottle formula. It is believed that his mother had either been hit by a car or was too ill to care for him. When found he was thought to be too small at 260g to survive and had to be coaxed to feed. Koala joeys suffer intense grief when separated from their moms. The hope is to introduce him to the wild when he is mature. Photo by Jamie Hanson. news.com.au #Koala
