we have a bird in Australia called a willie-wag-tail and another one called a pee-wee and i used to get really upset when i asked my mum what their “real names were” because i thought they were fucking made up by her to make fun of me when i said them
They live with a bird that looks like the willie-wag-tail and they think the name sounds made up? That thing looks like it came from a cartoon.
This is why Australian wildlife is all named the way it is. You look at it and you just can’t take it seriously enough to sit there and solemnly mull over dignified names.
This is also probably why 90% of Australian wildlife is venomous. It’s got to earn respect somehow.
For the past two days, this little dinosaur has been hitchhiking on my side mirror.
And every time I go back to my car, he’s just chilling on top of the mirror, ready to go.
The dude’s hella confused though. He sees himself in the mirror and tries to attract himself to himself
And sometimes it looks like he fell off …
What an amazing thing to have living in your side-view mirror. I only ever get spiders.
