if I could likespam this post like in the days of ye ol’ tumblr I would. GOD they would be literal infants! it would be terrifying for every other character! question though: would johnny know about the spider-man thing before getting married?
ACTUAL BABIES Sue thought the lowest moment of her life would be the time she let Victor take her to Baxter’s junior prom but no, it’s force field-sealing the windows and doors so her baby brother can’t go marry Spider-Man before he’s old enough to get a rental car. (I’m thinking it’d be a nah on the identity porn this time and he’d know, for simplicity’s sake.)
Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I’m sorry about that. I think I know what you’re feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you’ve been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road… they make us who we are. And if anyone’s destined for greatness, it’s you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we’ll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You’re my hero… and I love you!
There’s a baby boom at Devil Ark and for Dean Reid, who runs the Barrington Tops facility, that means plenty of sleepless nights. The Tasmanian devil breeding facility has welcomed 30 tiny joeys into the fold after they began emerging from their mums’ pouches in the past few weeks. Mr Reid is hand-raising two of tiny critters as the project’s future ambassadors and he’s on an around-the-clock bottle feeding program. ‘‘I feed them every four hours, so 6am, 12pm, 6pm and 10pm and then I’m getting up at 3am,” he said, adding that the joeys were about four months old. While it’s all food and naps for the youngsters, Mr Reid is bracing himself for their teenage years, having hand-raised devils before. “They’re really mischievous, they steal things. If I lose a remote or keys, I will find them stashed under the bed. They’re regular kleptomaniacs,” he said. Two joeys are selected every two years to be ambassadors for the Ark, meaning they bond with Mr Reid and are raised to be comfortable around people. They join the Ark team at fundraising and educational events to help raise awareness of its work. The public is invited to help name the male and female joeys, and suggestions can be made on the Devil Ark Facebook page. “We’re looking for something that has some meaning, an Aboriginal name, a town in Tasmania — it could be anything, sometimes the weirder, the better,” he said. Devil Ark is the largest, most successful conservation breeding program for the endangered Tasmanian devil and the joeys have bolstered its population to 184.
