CS, it is an Australian Western Pygmy Possum.

It's so cute I can't believe it can survive with all the Aussie bad guys! There are spiders bigger than that thing roaming Australia!

Once our tweo old cats die, SO has informed me - no more pets. I don't like it but fair enough. He's had to put up with my arrogant, self serving felines for 15 years. He did grant 2 exemptions - I can have either a unicorn or dragon if I can find an example of either.

Maybe this could be a third exemption.

Wow ! I bet that hurt and he probably has one heck of a bite wound .

Reminds me of a story from the Russian/Napoleon war when a horse that
had been stabbed with a bayonet bit off a mans face leaving a grotesque
skeletal death mask .

( Sorry for the dreadful story but interesting no ) .

A man who kept his horse in the same stable as my horse thought it was cool to hold an apple or carrot in his mouth so his horse could take it from him. Lots of blood. Lots and lots of blood.
