Penguin here.

Have you ever heard of a bilby? A bilby is another kind of marsupial native to Australia. They are also known as rabbit-eared bandicoots. According to Wikipedia’s bilby article, these cuties are burrowers that build extensive tunnel systems in order to protect themselves from predators and heat.
Look at those ears! This bilby is soooooo adorable! I just want to cuddle with our bilby pal!

Blue Bear here with Penguin,

Yesterday, I was hanging out at my place and my sister (probably thinking of the video game series “Crash Bandicoot”), asked me if I had posted a bandicoot up on the site yet. I hadn’t, and in fact, I didn’t really know what a bandicoot looked like to begin with. Penguin and I decided, later that evening, to look it up. It turns out they’re small marsupials that are very adorable and fuzzy. This one in particular is what I’d call a “bandi-cute“, because he’s so adorable! His ears are ridiculously long and silly looking, and he looks as though he’s not quite sure where to go, or what he wants to do. By the way, did you notice that Crash Bandicoot looks NOTHING like a bandicoot from real life? Penguin thinks Crash looks more like a Tasmanian Devil… speaking of which… maybe we’ll be seeing one of those soon! Anyway, here’s the picture of our cute bandicoot with big ears!
