I used to see these guys all the time when I was living in Santa Barbara. The otters were slowly expanding their range south after fur hunters nearly drove them extinct in the 19th century. Still, they're smart little things and you could see them tie seaweed around their legs so they could take a nap but not float away with the tide plus they'd put a flat stone on their belly and then use it to break open clams and abalones. The babies are cute little things and they aren't afraid of people at all. They've been known to swim right up to surfers just to check them out.

The mountain pygmy-possum is tiny - about 40g, about the weight of a chocolate bar.

On the other hand, Mrs. Redback finds it hard to acquire a fanbase:



Redback bites occur frequently, particularly over the summer months. More than 250 cases receive antivenom each year, with several milder envenomations probably going unreported. Only the female bite is dangerous. They can cause serious illness and have caused deaths. However, since Redback Spiders rarely leave their webs, humans are not likely to be bitten unless a body part such as a hand is put directly into the web, and because of their small jaws many bites are ineffective. The venom acts directly on the nerves, resulting in release and subsequent depletion of neurotransmitters.

Common early symptoms are pain (which can become severe), sweating (always including local sweating at bite site), muscular weakness, nausea and vomiting. Antivenom is available. No deaths have occurred since its introduction.

No, they aren't on my hard drive.

Some I did have on my hard drive in Australia because relatives and friends over here liked getting them in e-mails and e-cards.

0.01 London buses long, or about 230 thousand times lighter than an African elephant.

How much do they weight on Jupiter?

Immortal Wombat
19-09-2005, 19:29:45
On the surface of Jupiter, it would weigh 2.54 (http://www.exploratorium.edu/ronh/weight/) times as much as on Earth. 60.7g.

More likely a smooth tailed possum, poor thing.

Wombats are beefy creatures, like a badger that's swallowed a beach ball. Many when they die turn over on their backs with all four legs in the air. It's a sad and humorous sight, simultaneously.

At Marine Ices in Chalk Farm:

One of north Londonís favourite institutions, Marine Ices was producing the best Italian ice cream in London way before that delicious food became so sexy. There are lots of varieties, including cassata, bombes and sundaes as well as single scoops. They do serve solid Italian fare, but itís the ice cream that is famous. You can also stand at the window and get ice creams to take away, particularly popular on warm weekends when the nearby Camden Lock shopping area gets a bit too crowded.

Tsk, tsk...

That could have been an attempt at a hundred-nil on your part, but it is rather improbable that he was trying to hundred-nil you by answering your question.

Oh, and you'd be full of shit. Jupiter most likely has solids at it's core that would serve as a 'surface'.

for sure a gas bubble in the void has a surface too?
