The Australian Musuem has a section dedicated to Jon's new neighbours.

Drop Bear - Australian Museum

As you can see, he was very brave just getting close enough to photograph them, so let's not 'dis' him on his fear of spiders and lizards.

CK, could you explain the 6,000 years ago statement to thos eof us slow on the uptake? That looks like a dino print, and even in Utah where the clocks are set back at least 50 years, that's not enough for live dinos.

In case you wonder what happens through the night in the desert during a high windstorm...



Don't laugh, a picture composed somewhat like this was selected one of the 50 greatest photos in Arizona Highways this month...
