Easter Bilby

 

I went out bush yesterday now that the easter rush has died down, and I was lucky enough to find this little fellow. The Easter Bunny is getting a bit of a bad cred nowdays, and lots of money has gone into captive-breed-and-release programs for the rare Easter Bilby.

 

The program must be pretty successful because this is the dark-colouration morph which is normally impossible to find.

 

It was such a joy finding one of these in the wild, and I am glad to have had the chance to see it. I only hope that in years to come they will still be around for me to show my children.

 

Oh, in case anybody was wondering, it was delicious.
