Where do pademelons go when ...

... it's hot?

Here's Steptoe, the tatty old male pademelon relaxing in the shade of the eaves.




... it's raining

Steptoe again, sheltering in the carport late at night, with only his tail exposed to the elements

Who owns that place - you or him? I bet he thinks it's his!!

I think you're right. He's certainly been here longer than I have. It's only a matter of time before he works out how to open the door.

Just spotted 4 Tassie Pademelons a moment ago while checking the moth trap. Maybe I should have looked in the shed to see if there were any more :-)

They'll have probably broken into the house while you were at the trap.

Glad you have accepted the local attitude that the place belongs to them.

The older paddies are very laid back. I saw one of them sitting in the excavation a scrubfowl had made in its mound ready for the eggs. It was just the right size for a pademelon's backside.
