Day 6

Day 6- A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet

I love animals! Ok well not all of them. I don't like monkeys. The scare me, I'm not sure why. I've never liked them. When I go to the zoo I'd be happy to just steer clear of that whole section. That story about that chimpanzee turning on it's owner and ripping her face thanks. I'm not really a dog person either. Unless it's an old tired trained dog. They I like them just fine. :) But when they are puppies and all spazzy and crazy, ugh. Exhausting.

I watch animal planet on a regular basis. There was a special one time on these beauties:

Seriously. How cute are they? They are called Wombats, native to Australia. Go figure. They are in the marsupial family, along with Kangaroos and Koala bears. I love them. They look like real live teddy bears. Not sure what kind of pet they would make. Probably not a very good one, look at those little razor claws. I think they like to dig too, so it would probably dig up my carpet. But that is ok, they are so cute I just can't stand it.

It's a bummer they are not at any zoos around here. I'm not sure if they are even at a zoo anywhere. I would have never heard about them if I hadn't seen that special on animal planet. I hope to see one in real life one day. As if I needed another reason to want to go to Australia! :)

Hi there =]
I'm from Australia, and we have plenty of wombats in our zoos. They are actually very fast and can be quite aggressive. Don't let the sweet innocent face deceive you =]
