The Chacoan peccary is the largest in the peccary species. There are thought to be either three or four living peccary species.

Do not confuse peccaries with pigs as they are not the same. Peccaries originate in the Americas while pigs are from Africa, Europe and Asia.

Have you every heard of a bilby? These Australian marsupials dwell in the desert. They are unfortunately endangered due to habitat loss. Bilbies’ characteristic long ears help them cool down. According to the Australian Government Department of Environment, bilbies dig extensive tunnels with their strong forelimbs, and a single bilby can have up to twelve burrows within its home.

For New Year’s, Blue Bear and I will be going to an aquarium that apparently features walruses! We’ve never seen any before and are definitely looking forward to it.

We hope you guys have special New Year plans as well.

Did you know that male walruses can weigh as much as 2 000 kg?
