Tau Kē Tēnei Wiki: Clouded Leopard Cubs

Two very cute cubs were born to Lowry Park Zoo’s (Tampa, Florida) clouded leopard couple, Malee and Yim, on 29 February. However, Malee stopped feeding her cubs after the first day so zoo staff have stepped up to the task. The cubs are a male and female and the zoo says they are “stable.” They are receiving 24 hour care in the zoo’s veterinary hospital, including four-hourly bottle... read more

Tau Kē Tēnei Wiki: The Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth

Once again my Tau Kē (very cool) of the week comes via Amy Carparelli.

Tau Kē Tēnei Wiki: An Atheist Christmas

I celebrate Christmas. Not Christ’s mass, but all the other stuff. I have a big Christmas tree with lights and decorations, other decorations around the house, and my front windows all have lights in them to delight passers by. New Zealand pretty much closes down over the Christmas/New Year break. We have a couple of days public holiday at Christmas, and two more at New Year, which are usually... read more
