About Those Squished-in Phone Displays

A couple of you have found that when you try to read my home page, or comments, on your phone (don’t expect me to remember what kind of phone: all we have here is a wall phone), the display is all squished off to one side and very hard to read.

I’ve sent a screen shot of the problem to Jill and she says she can fix it sometime during the next few days. Please be patient: she’s fixed a lot of things here, so far.

And now, per a request by Phoebe [trumpet fanfare]…

THE SPOTTED QUOLL

Quolls - Bush Heritage Australia

This cat-sized animal lives along the east coast of Australia in rainy, wooded habitats. Also known as the tiger cat or tiger quoll, it’s a predator that eats pretty much anything it can catch. Oddly enough, it has the second most powerful bite among all carnivorous mammals.

This marsupial is related to the Tasmanian Devil. Quolls are not as numerous as they used to be, and some conservation measures are in order. To me they somewhat resemble Thylacoleo, the extinct “marsupial lion,” which had some of the deadliest biting equipment known from the fossil record. Cryptozoologists think there might be a very few of those left, somewhere. But no one else does.

  1. It’s interesting that in the marsupial world, there are all sorts of animals. It seems to be a separate branch of the mammal family, with its own equivalents of felines, canines, grazers, etc.

    1. I forgot to mention the extinct Australian monitor lizard, Varanus priscus (aka Megalania), which *may* have been 20 feet long–twice as big as the Komodo dragon, the world’s largest living lizard.
