Penguin here.

Pade-what, you ask? Pademelon! Like wallabies and kangaroos, pademelons are from the family Macropodidae and according to Wikipedia’s Pademelon article, they are the smallest member of that family.
I’m not exactly sure what is going on in this picture, but it seems to me like Mommy Pademelon is examining a flower for consumption while her little joey is patiently (and comfortably) waiting in her pouch. Whatever the case, this picture is adorable and I’m proud to say that I learned about a new animal today!

Yeah, I'll just wait here while you grab us some food.
