Sly Rambo escapes again, the Tassie tiger in colour, and the hairy-nosed wombat bounces back


Rambo the fox continues to taunt conservationists in northwest NSW… Since his profile last month, the cunning fox has had yet another lucky escape. If he wasn’t such a predator, he’d be a cult hero.

The hairy-nosed wombat has officially stepped back from the brink of extinction with its population jumping to more than 300. Good on you, Fatso.

And to mark yesterday’s National Threatened Species Day, footage of Benjamin, the last-remaining Tasmanian tiger, was released in colour for the first time. And on yesterday’s typo in Squiz The Day, we’re happy to report Tassie devils are still alive and kicking [insert hand to head emoji…].
