Cute creature department

The envelope the magazine came in had a very cute stamp.

On the back was an explanation. The picture shows a long-footed potoroo, which was only discovered in the late 1960s in the forests of East Gippsland, Victoria. Since then it has been found in small pockets elsewhere, but like many small marsupials, it is highly susceptible to introduced predators. Its pricipal food is a truffle like fungus. I am not making this up.
