Australian Mammals that you didn’t know existed

You hear a lot about Kangaroos and Koalas and such, so I thought I’d post some animals that are unknown to lots of people, even some Aussies don’t realise we have them. Sadly most of these are on the endagered species list.

Also some fun facts added so you can have an idea of how awesome they are.


Considered Australia’s ‘native cat’ these guys are carnivorous marsupials and have the ability to bite through bone. 4 species; Eastern Quoll, Spotted-Tailed Quoll (or Tiger Quoll), Western Quoll (or chuditch) and Northern Quoll. ranging in size from 25cm to 75 cm long.


Cute little insect eaters, again a marsupial. Can move at speeds of around 13km/hr. Only about 10cm long.


Marsupial. Of which there are 5 species (and at least another 2 extinct); Eastern Bettong, Boodie, Woylie, Northern Bettong and Rufous Rat-Kangaroo (or Rufous Bettong). They seem to get along well with wombats, where I work they enter the wombat exhibits of a night to share their food.


Marsupial. There was once 2 species of Bilby, sadly the Lesser Bilby became extinct in the 1950s and the Greater Bilby is greatly endangered. In the same family as Bandicoots. Omnivores with backwards facing pouches (as they dig a lot this stops dirt getting in their pouch) Australian’s know these guys through the story of the Easter Bilby. Rabbits are considered a major reason for their decrease in numbers as they eat all the food and out-breed the Bilbies.


Marsupial. Aka the banded anteater or Walpurti. Mainly eats termites. Emblem of Western Australia. Up to 45cm long. One of the few marsupials that are diurnal (active of a day). Eats up to 20,000 termites each day. Estimated population of less than 1000.

Grey-Headed Flying Fox

Aka Fruit Bat. Placental mammal. Called a flying fox because they have a fox-like face and can fly.
Babies are called pups. Megabat. Wingspan of about 1m. May travel 50kms in one night for food. Eats pollen, nectar, sap and fruit. Long distance seed distributors and plant pollenators. Each colony plants around 30,000 trees a night. Without these guys we don’t have any of our lovely bush and ecosystem that we all rely on. Have very good eyesight and no echolocation.

Greater Stick-Nest Rat

Placental mammal. Up to 26cm long. Don’t have a ratty face. Were extinct on the mainland but through breeding programs have been re-introduced. Herbivores. Chew branches to length and weave them together to make a nest which can be up to 1m high and 1.5m wide.

Other unknown Australian Mammals you can look up:
Pygmy Possum
Feathertail Glider (smallest glider in the world)
Southern Ningaui
Greater Glider
Eastern False Pipistrelle

Sadly lots of these could go extinct within the next 20 years, and people haven’t even had the chance to really get to appreciate them yet.
**PS the Koala is also in danger of becoming extinct in the wild in the next 20years**

Warnings: swearing, tiny families differences, fight(? , ends in fluff 

Originally posted by collisionofdcandmarvel

You couldn’t believe your eyes, your father, aka, Batman vs Superman were going to beat their shit, again… but this time you knew exactly what happened, you knew it was going to be hilarious one day, but right now, you were scared.

To be honest, you were tired of this, you were tired of their fights, really, they were like 10. Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent could fight over a freaking cookie and turn the world upside down if they wanted, like if they just wanted to fight each other, oh and don’t talk about how your dad’s behavior after those fights, he was like the broken-hearted girl friend who didn’t want to talk to him. At first it amazed you that he was actually the Batman, but now you just wanted to slap their perfect faces.

Rain was soaking your clothes as your hands were holding a wild Damian ready to punch Jon’s face. Seriously God, why did you deserve all of these shit, today?!

Your gaze went straight to Kara in front of you, she was more than pissed, but she was enjoying every minute of this fight. Her hands were holding Jon tighter, you could easily said after seeing the holes under Jon’s shoes. Well, heck. You said to yourself.

“What? You can even hold your tiny mini-me?” Kara said with a smirk when Damian was trying to escape your arms.

“Oh hell you didn’t said that!” You and Damian said in one voice, both of your anger raised and for sure, your father and Clark were in the same page.

Three hours ago

“I don’t get it Bruce, why do I have to stay?!” you told Bruce as you walked behind him through the Manor.

“I can’t hold Damian, but you can” he said not turning around.

“I’m not a nana Bruce… and I know Dick it’s the ultimate babysister here” you told him with a chuckle.

“Y/N. Dick, Tim and Jason are busy, you are the only one around…” he told you while he searched for Alfred.

“Well… that’s not true, what about Cass, Steph and Barbara?” you asked him.

“Y/N he is your brother”


“And I need you this time, that’s it”

“What if I go with Damian to somewhere else while you deal with Super-family”

“You know what happens when I’m alone, with Clark, Y/N”

“So, there’s no other option, we are staying I liked it or not, right?” you told him with a scoff.

“And I think lady Y/N’s detective genes are blooming” Alfred said when he walked inside the room.

“Y/N go for Damian, see you both here in 10, we gotta prepare everything” Bruce said while turning to Alfred.

“Are you kidding me?! Look for Damian it’s like a living ‘Where’s Waldo?’ ” you said with a scoff.

“Tim found him in less than 10 minutes” Bruce said with a raised eyebrow and a smirk, it was your clue to ran in search for Damian, you had to break that record.

“Always works” Bruce said with a chuckle.

“Actually, no one has found Damian in less than 10 minutes” Alfred said with smile.

“She doesn’t have to know that” Bruce said with a tiny laugh.

“Why we have to go?!” Jon and Kara said in one voice as they look at Clark walking around.

“Aren’t you friends with Y/N and Damian?” Clark said with a raised eyebrow.

Both of the looked at each other as they thought for seconds.

“We are friends… for minutes without fighting” Kara said while rolling her eyes.

“Damian always fights dad, he’s my friend… but he always do that” Jon said with a sad smile.

“Well, that makes three of us.. okay look, I need both of you, you know how Bruce and I fight over tiny things, so maybe, if our family is with us, maybe, we can avoid a fight, again” Clark said with a sigh.

“So why you don’t go with Lois?” Kara asked with a raised eyebrow

“She has work to do, but she will be there later” Said Clark with a smile. 

“And what are we supposed to do?” Kara asked confused.

“Just, don’t fight, please” Clark said with a pleading face.

“After these, I want a giant ice cream” Jon said with a stern face.

“I agree with Jon, so we want a double giant ice cream” said Kara with a smile.

“Deal, but no fights” Clark said with a smile.

“Is that a plane?”

“Is that a bird?”

“Wait no?! That’s- Oh damn, I really wanted to be another thing, but you guys, are okay… I guess” Damian said after his eyes recognized the super family.

Bruce hit the back of his head with a face that clearly said ‘Damian, shut up’. So you chuckled after Damian’s face ‘You know it’s true, father’. God, you loved your family.

“I thought you were pretty robins, but you are just, flying rats” Jon said with a smirk.

Jon” Clark said in his dad’s voice. 

“What?! you know it’s true, you have said it yourself“ Jon said without thinking and the three of you looked at Clark shocked.

“Good to see you Bruce, shall we start?” Clark said trying to avoid the fight.

You looked at your dad and you saw his clenched jaw. He was trying not to start an argument.

“Yeah, come in” Bruce said trying to stay calm

The super family stepped inside the Major and your eyes locked with Kara’s. You gotta be fucking kidding me, you thought to yourself, of all the people in the world, she came. Your friendship with her was really strange, sometimes you could be best friends and go out laughing and other days you were actual fighting with her, just like your dad. It was strange, just that.

“It’s going to be the longest dinner of our lives” You told Damian after the super family walked in front of you, leaving you with Damian behind.

“Tt, father made a bet with me, sister” Damian told you with a playful smirk.

“oh, really? Today I won one, Tim is going to be pissed” you told him with another smirk.

“Father made a bet with me about the super brat fam” Damian said with a smirk, he knew you pretty well. Little jerk.

“What about it?” you asked him curious while you both start walking behind your guests.

Don’t punch them” Damian told you with a wide smile, damn. He knew you, and damn, you wanted to won that bet too, but it was actually difficult with Kara here.

“What’s the prize?” You asked Damian, maybe you could break that bet.

“We can have a new pet” He told you with another smile.

“Deal, no punching” you said with a smirk, you couldn’t let this pass, you wanted a pet. 

After an hour talking, finally Bruce and Clark were ending, peacefully. Well, in all that full hour many things were said between everyone, stupid things actually, you punched multiple times Damian’s leg when he was about to start a fight with Jon, and it was ridiculous, he wanted to fight the boy because he pet Titus or because he took the last cookie (well, you understand that part, Alfred cookies are a treasure).

In other hand, your father’s and Clark’s jaws were clenched, they might be talking peacefully, but they were more than pissed.

And well, Kara was playing with few sentences around you, and of course Damian kicked you many times under the table to not fight her, she was talking about how good she was, she could lift cars, she could fly, she didn’t need any of your toys to fight. You were more than ready to stab her with the fucking fork, until Bruce looked at you with a Bat glare.

So you tried to stay calm, your hand was clutching the cloth in your hands trying comfort your anger, you looked at Bruce hands and you chuckled, he was doing the same, you looked at Damian and he was doing the same thing, you wanted to laugh, this was a strong game for the Wayne’s.

Who will crack first?

“Well, for the record Bruce, by far this has been a pretty calm evening” said Clark with a smile.

“Are you saying that it’s weird that we stay calm?” Bruce said curious.

No, Dad please stop. You thought as you looked at your father with wide eyes.

“Well, calm isn’t the word that could define a ’Wayne’ ” Kara said as if it meant nothing, how wrong she was, she was reaching the point of no return.

“What word will be the best for a ’Wayne’ then?” you asked her with a raised eyebrow and Damian looked at you the same way you looked at Bruce before.

“Drama Queens” Damian heard Jon said under his breath.

“I’m sorry, what did you said farm boy?” Damian said with a curious look.

“I can be a farm boy, at least I’m not a flying creepy rat” Jon said with a scoff

Oh hell, they were getting there.

“There goes our calm evening” Clark said under his breath.

“Tell me if I’m wrong, but I could swear you are implying that my kids are breaking your 'calm evening’ ” Bruce said with anger in his voice.

“Bruce, I don’t mean that! But now this is nothing but calm!” Clark said with a scoff and both of his eyebrows went high until they reached his hairline.

“For the record Clark, your family was the one who started” Bruce said with a smirk

“Don’t you dare to blame us, Bat” Clark said with a scoff, but you knew he was getting pissed.

“But I dare, because you are in my house Clark, and all night your family had play with mine to get in our nerves” said Bruce with a glare.

“WE never start fights, Bruce” Clark said getting more pissed.

“Oh, really? guess what? your boy dug his grave when he called Damian 'flying rat’ and so far Y/N it’s not less than Kara” Bruce said and you and Damian looked at your father, you were more than proud.

“Really, Bruce? two can play the same game. Your family always fights mine, no matter what, over a cookie or death glare contest! We were here to discuss your problem with the Joker and the Scarecrow! not our families!” Clark said with a glare.

“My problem with those two it’s mine and not yours! we were here to discuss all the villain out there, alien” Bruce said with a smirk because, everyone knew, Clark hated that word.

“You want to fight Joker lover, bring it” Clark said as he raised up.

“Dad no…” you told Bruce before he raised, he looked at you and Damian, you were not going to crack over them.

“What Y/N, do you agree that your father loves the Joker?” Kara said and well, you crack there.

“You know Dad?, do your own business while I make mines” you said and Bruce and you stand up beside him.

“Tt, Sister” Damian told you while his hand grabbed your bicep “We can’t break the bet” he told you under his breath.

“Aren’t you old enough to deal with your own problems, demon?” Jon asked with a chuckle.

“Nevermind, sis” Damian told you as he glared at Jon.

“Master Bruce, I will not stand this again” Alfred said and everyone looked at him “Cleaning the Manor it’s exhausting, deal with your differences outside” He told everyone as he leaved the dinner room.

And so, that’s why you are outside the Manor, trying to hold Damian the longest time you can, you thought that maybe you could chill things, but no, your family has no chill, and more less when these super fam is trying to die. 

“Your sister can hold you forever!” Jon said with, literal, red eyes.

“You know what? he’s right” you told Damian and you free him.

In matter of seconds they were fighting each other on the ground, and soon you felt someone grabbing you by your hoodie, you looked at Kara and she had red eyes too.

“It doesn’t surprise me, you can’t fight like a human” you told her with a scoff.

“Let’s fight your way then, but no toys Y/N” she told you and soon her eyes were blue again.

You didn’t gave her time to react, you gave her a punch right in her face, oh she didn’t saw that coming, and it was glorious for you, finally you did what you craved.

“Bring it, Supergirl” you told her with a shitty grin

And it was her sign to start fighting against you. You can’t lie, fighting against someone like her was hard, really hard, this guys doesn’t get tired as a normal people, because of course, they’re not, but you were trying your best to act like them. Your father was right, this was your home, and you will not lose in it.

One hour of punching, kicking and screaming and still you were on your feet. Blood was coming from your lip, eyebrows, hairline and nose, you had some bruises and your body grew tired every passing second, but looking at Kara made you feel better, you really did a great job, I mean, she could be all fresh with some dust in her hair, but you really had an actual fight with her. Damian and Bruce were doing their best too, what could you say? you have been all your life training and -

What the fuck is happening?!” you heard Dick’s voice and you turned around.

You shouldn’t had done that, never give your back to your enemy. Kara launched herself to you, pinning you down and holy fuck, you must have pissed her off, because she was ready to make a big hole in your head.

Someone took her away from you, Dick of course and he tried to calm her, you sit on the ground, but seconds after you felt someone carrying you inside the Manor, but you didn’t fight any longer, you were tired, your were bleeding, you knew you were in Jason’s arms so, why fight?

Your eyes looked at Tim trying to hold Damian while the Super boy (that Jackass, but other story for another time), trying  to pull Jon away from Damian. It was pretty funny when you thought about it. Then your gaze drifted to your father, he was being pulled away by Alfred while Lois was trying to calm Clark.

“Care to explain?” Jason told you after he settle you on the couch, he went from some First Aid kit and return to clean your wounds.

“Hello my love, good to see you too… really need an explanation? We always fight” you told him with a chuckle.

“I know the fighting thing, but this time you all came too far” Jason told you before he started stitching up your eyebrow. “For the record, I love you too” he told you with a smile.

“Drake! Put me down!” you heard Damian’s voice coming closer.

Tim placed Damian beside you and you chuckled when you saw him, he had the deepest frown on his face, he was way too cute when he was mad.

“Who won?” you asked your brother with a half smile, Jason was still patching your wounds so you tried not to groan at the pain.

“You really need an answer, Sis? I always- ”

“That’s enough! We leave you for hours. HOURS and you already did a freaking war in the backyard! What’s wrong with you!?” Dick said walking inside the room.

You looked at Damian and you felt a little bad, you really made a chaos in hours just because some stupid words.

“Alfred I don’t need more scolding!” you heard your father’s voice.

Everyone looked at the door, Alfred came in, holding Bruce by his ear (you live for this moments), he placed Bruce beside Damian. The three of you were a bloody mess, Jason gave you a kiss on your forehead before he got up. Tim, Dick, Alfred and Jason were looking at the three family members on the couch.

“Master Bruce. I know you tend to fight with Mr. Kent, but this time you ALL went too far.” he said with with a tired voice. “it is your home, but they are your guest, sir. You can’t treat them like that. Clean up and apologize to them” Alfred said.

There wasn’t a single force on Earth that could fight Alfred, he was always right and so you all felt more guilty. You thought about your actions and you felt more and more bad with yourself, you really need it to apologize to the Supers.

Jason helped with your wounds while Dick helped Damian. Tim was with Bruce. Alfred went outside the room, he was going to apologize to the Clark’s family, but he stopped himself when he heard Lois doing that job.

Minutes later the three of you came out from the room, 'cleaner’ than before. And you looked at the family in front of you. You wanted to make a winning-dance, when you saw Kara’s face but you hold it, this wasn’t the time.

“I want to apologize for our behavior, Clark. We went too far” Bruce said and he looked at you and Damian, like 'Help me here, Batman never do apologies’

“You might be in our home, but that doesn’t give us the right to treat you like, well, like we did back there” You told them with a half smile.

You looked at your side, Damian was still not having any of these shit, so you nudged him with your elbow.

“Yeah, we are sorry, okay? we truly apologize” He told them with a serious tone, you were amazed by that, to be honest.

“Hey, we are in the same ground here, we didn’t have the right to said all those things or to get in your nerves” Clark said and Lois smiled at his husband.

Minutes passed from apologies and some few chats between the families. But they realized it was time to leave. The Bat family arrived to the room as Alfred said few scolding but ending with a speech about how proud he was with the ending of the troubles. Jason tangled his hand with yours as he kissed your temple.

“So, next time you are going to fight her?” Jason told you with a chuckle

“Well, I don’t know, I hope I do, it’s a really good chance to train” you told him with another chuckle.

“Well, as long as you don’t get close to that brat Super Boy, I’m fine with that” Jason told you with a smile.

“Jealous much, Todd?” you asked him with a smirk

“Me? I’m never jealous” he said with a scoff

“Tt so you don’t care I gave Y/N’s number to Jon? That Super Boy asked him for it” Damian said while sitting beside you.

“You did what, demon?!” Jason said with eyes wide open.

“What? you said you weren’t jealous” Damian said with a smirk, he leaned his head in your shoulder and you smiled.

“Please! Don’t fight right now! I really want to watch this show!” said Tim when he placed himself beside Jason.

“The only show you will see is how I kick the Demon’s ass” Jason said with a hiss.

“Touch him and you will regret it, Todd” you told him with a playful glare.

“How are the two of you so damn close?” Dick said when he returned with his 'Batman- Lego’ pijamas. He made a gesture to Damian to move so he could sit beside him.

“She’s my sister, Grayson” Damian said with a glare.

“We are your brothers, Damian” Dick said with a smile.

“Whatever! Don’t fight and everyone shut up now!” Tim said having enough of his family.

After all, it was the monthly sleep over for the Bat Family, you were all together watching (Y/F/TVS), nothing in the world could take this away from you. Soon, you and Damian felt asleep, you were more than tired, you don’t know how many time passed, but the only thing you knew was that now, you were in Jason’s arms, warm and safe.

“ JESUS FUCK IT BIT ME. “ with the kingsman

This is the story about the time Eggsy almost got rabies.

And by “almost got rabies”, I mean that time Eggsy had to spend six hours in the ER getting rabies vaccinations shot up into his left ass cheek.

The four of you had been assigned to a mission that involved infiltrating a rather decrepit mansion. As Merlin explained in the debrief, the house had been the home to a rather infamous drug lord who had supposedly been a part of a cult terrorizing East London with a series of Jack the Ripper-like murders. You, Roxy, Eggsy, and Harry had been put on the assignment and headed out that night to scope out the building and its grounds.

With Merlin chattering away in all of your ears, the four of you quickly scoped the perimeter. The house was run-down, clearly abandoned, and stood among overgrowth and graffiti’d walls. Flashlights cut through the heavy darkness surrounding the pack of you as you moved to enter the house.

“God, this place is fallin’ apart,” Eggsy mutters, eyes scanning the entrance to the run-down mansion. 

Harry speaks next, toeing a piece of plywood out of the way as he eases through the halls of the home, leading the group. “Indeed. However, if Merlin’s calculations are right, then the passage leading to the cult’s original meeting place should still be intact.”

“Harry, when have I ever steered y’ wrong?” Merlin quips, sipping his tea. The feeds from all of your glasses are reading out well, and Merlin is glad he’s not in the field with you four on this one. Talk about mildew and pests. 

Roxy snorts, mouth up turning into a smirk. “You two bicker like a married couple.”

You can almost hear Harry rolling his eyes.

The building smells like damp, rotting wood. It’s a bit worrisome, seeing as the ceiling is bowed with age and the door frames have started to crumble. Personal belongings of the previous owner have long since been stripped from the house, leaving faded wallpaper behind where photos and paintings used to be.

There is graffiti littering the place, but the most unsettling is the amount of FUCK ME SATAN 666 related ‘art’. 

“This place is a lil’ creepy, innit?” you say, flashlight sweep across the large den. Eggsy giggles, waggling his fingers.

“S’ Halloweeeeeeny, huh, Percival?” Eggsy grins, “Y’ spooked out yet, luv?”

“If you ever say ‘Halloweeny’ again, I’ll punch you in the mouth,” Roxy mumbles, “Now come on. Let’s find this entrance so we can get out of this place.”

Harry sweeps past the three of you, hand finding the notch in the fireplace, exposing the marble staircase diving below the den’s floor. He offers a bit of a smirk. Harry is a damn legend. “I couldn’t agree more, Lancelot.”

Eggsy doesn’t let the fact that you’re creeped out go, though, and shines his flashlight into the abysmal dark that the staircase leads to. Whispering in your ear, the cheeky bastard grins. “Looks a lil’ like th’ stairway t’ hell, huh?”

“Fuck off,” you manage and start off down the steps. All of your footsteps echo against the walls, and suddenly, there’s a lot of squeaking. You pause, hand up to stop the rest of them. Out of the darkness, a swarm of bats dart and you shriek. Ducking against the wall, you wait for it to pass. Once all is quiet,  you glance back at your three friends and sigh. Eggsy is giggling. “Bloody ‘ell, I’ve never heard someone scream like you just screamed, Percival. They’re jus’ bats, luv. Harmless lil’ flying rats.”

It’s not until you make it to the bottom of the staircase that Eggsy chimes in. Pointing to the low ceilings, he elbows you. There’s a group of bats nestled together, hanging upside down and clinging to the stalactites being formed from the ceiling. His finger moves to brush one of their wing’s.

“See? Look at ‘em. They’re cute.”

Moments later, Eggsy is screaming in pure terror. 


Roxy is scrambling to duck to the floor as the family of bats panic and swarm around a worried Harry who is desperately trying to pull the bat from Eggsy’s hand. You watch in complete exasperation as Merlin is screaming with laughter through your headsets.

“Karma’s a bitch, huh, Egghead?”
