Puggles

I just discovered that platypus young are called puggles too, just like echidna young.

It must be a monotreme thing.

Batted

No longer batless.

I was handed a black, dripping beastie. The lady had found the bat clinging to the chlorine dispenser in the pool. When I picked him up a ew hours later he was still sopping wet. An hour in a warm bat tent dried him out nicely.

He's another young broadnosed bat; the same species as the utter bastard from the other pool and Florence. Except he's very quiet. I don't know who much water he drank, so I'll keep him a few days to see how things go. He ate a dozen meal worms, which is good.
