Rumble Front 2


(The Redgum Yowie)

As the leader of the Yowie Pack, Rumble is an excitable, rough and tumble character. Cousin to the red kangaroo, Rumble is always ready to make a stand in defence of desert and plain. Inclined to be impatient, Rumble’s bark is far worse than its bite, and underneath there is a heart of gold.

Squish Front 3


(The Fiddlewood Yowie)

Part playful platypus, Squish is as bubbly as a babbling brook, sparkling as a waterfall and contented as a slow flowing river. Protector of our waterways, Squish is always happy and energetic – the jester of the Yowie Pack and friend to all.

Some people call them a Sea Parrot, because of the colors on their beaks
Males and Females will meet at the same place every year for mating
Because of a flexibly-hinged jaw, serrated inner mouth and strong tongue, Puffins can hold around a dozen fish at a time

(Drepanis coccinea)

Off the rocky coasts of Hawaii, this bright bird uses its beak to feast on nectar, seeds, fruits, and insects; pollinating plants and controlling insect populations.

The white fur on the honey badger’s back is called the mantle
When born, baby honey badgers stay with their mothers for 12-16 months
