Yes, I can do that, but what rhymes with numbat? Wombat? Dingbat? This dingbat is taking her wombat to see the numbat?

It's OK. You can shorten myrmecobius fasciatus to Numbat.

Of course I do. Just like Heidi isn't really surreal. So what can I do to redeem myself in your all-knowing eyes? Repeat 100 times "She's taking a hiatus from myrmecobius fasciatus"? Would that work, my funny friend?

I hope you understand that I was pulling your leg, Gail.

What a load of horse (bleep)! You know better than that, Gail! ((I'm wagging my finger at you in a lecturing sort of way)) Shame, shame.

The closest relatives anteaters have are sloths, so how could one be a marsupial, and one not? The Numbat eats ants, but is not a true Anteater. Like the Tasmanian Tiger wasn't a true Tiger. Or Wolf.

Hi Heidi, feel free to disagree with me all you like; that's how I learn. I was thinking of the numbat (banded anteater) from Australia, which IS a marsupial. BUT, after a little research, which I should have done prior to posting, I learned that the numbat is not an anteater at all. The nerve! Is that what you were referring to? Can I go to the head of the class, or do I need to wear the dunce cap again? I await, with some trepidation, your esteemed response.

Sorry to disagree with you, strenuously, my friend, but Opossums are the ONLY non-Australian marsupials. Sloths and anteaters are the only members of the same order (Pilosa), so closely related.

Thanks for the info. BTW, sloths are not marsupials, but anteaters are.

So cute!

I can't tell what this is. A sloth? Anteater?

octomom

An animal I don't know! Do you know what it is?
