Mammal

I got a response to a "Mammal" prompt from September of 2012, but it does not absolve me of posting for this year's "Mammal" prompt!

Three mammals, of the primate variety...



Placental the sister of her brother marsupial
Their cousin called monotreme
Dead uncle allotheria

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog
The fox, the ox
Giraffe and shrew
Echidna, caribou


(Never have figured out why They Might Be Giants added the Koala Bear to the list of mammals when they obviously know the difference between mammals and marsupials, but....)

Comments

Great response to the prompt! :o)
I love this! And marsupials are mammals, so it's OK for the koala to be there.
That's good to know. Since they're mentioned specifically in the song as brother to the placental mammal....

I think they were just listing the three forms of mammal reproduction, since monotremes (ie: the platypus) are a complete anomaly, being egg layers.
What a neat photo.

I know - I hadn't realised we'd done them so recently - I thought it was longer ago, until after I'd posted the bird prompt...
Hey, it's okay with me. We have LOTS of mammals to take pictures of! :)
All three of those mammals are cute.
*counting*... I think I actually spy about 16 mammals in that shot. :)
Well, if you want to get TECHNICAL... :D

Those are cute monkeys:-)
Especially the one in the middle. ;)
What a fun response to the prompt!
