I want to see an anomalous armadillo.
I've seen possums. More than enough.

Better than my hail story.


So if hail is ice falling, what if fire and brimstone rains down?
Would that be a hell storm?

Perhaps it's raining armadillos and nobody noticed

Are you in Australia? That's where possums (Phalangeridae) are.
In the US we have opossum (Didelphimorphia).
(For real they are very different creatures)

There's a whole family of them right outside here that dig in the garbage. Also I've seen a raccoon and a few weeks ago when Harvey blew through here I saw a skunk, it came not 2 or 3 feet away from me - I just froze and didn't move. Thankfully the skunk didn't seem to notice me and just kept walking along.

You can fight an opossum or a raccoon and kick it but you cannot do that to a skunk, lol.

Nah. I saw them in Oregon. So I guess they're opossum. But nobody says opossum. In Oregon. Unless it's like; "Oh! Possum!"

Possums are the only marsupial found in North America, north of Mexico. That's something. Fun fact, there's a population of possums on an island off the coast of Georgia that is believed to have been separated for its mainland cousins for maybe thousands of years. In that time, it has evolved to have a 50% greater lifespan than mainland possums (which are of course famously short lived for an animal of their size).

Funner fact. There is a subspecies of wallaby in Kalihi valley. Hawaiian marsupials.

Highly anomalous.

This is the type you saw specifically than:
Virginia opossum

It's the only marsupial north of Mexico.

The Common opossum is central and south America.

The possum and cuscuses are Oceanic. That link shows all 28 known species.

The ones we are used to up here (Virginian) look very different than all those other ones, though they are vaguely similar.

Aha!

In the United States, it is typically referred to simply as a possum.

Kinda mean, and ugly.

Oh wow, I never knew about that.
They look so funny, lol.

I've been to Kalihi, that's an odd place for them to be though.
Surely they are found elsewhere on the island?
That's a little confusing, since it's mostly an urban area.

Yeah wiki isn't a great source all the time.

Upper Kalihi, near the spine of the Koolau range, is pretty dense forest.

I did not know that. I'm guessing they're recent transplants? Escapees or something?

I think I can beat that though. There's a population of hippos in South America that escaped from Pablo Escobar's abandoned private zoo.

There were 4 originally and now there's estimated to be about 50.

Yeah. Private zoo escapees from the start of the previous century. Or maybe they swam.

I herd about the hippos.

Of course, them Aussie camels...somewhat anomalous.

Correction:
God made them live 50% longer when he put them there 6000 years ago.

Wait, your name is antediluvian, how do I work in the flood story if all the land animals had to get on the boat 4500 years ago?

I guess the opossum got off the boat, somehow wandered back to North America, then branched off to the island and just lives happier (which looks like it lives longer but really it's just not suicidal like the mainland ones are) ?

Ok I can't make up my mind.
lmfao

Hmmm, that's one heck of an invasive species.

But really if you think about it, after the flood and Noah and all that, everything's an invasive species now that Atlantis sunk.

Ok I'm laughing pretty loud, it's almost 3am I need to be quiet.

Ok let me get this straight...

So it rained camels in Australia, several thousand miles away from their origin location...

Ok, so the hippos got into South America because it rained Pablo Escobars in Columbia one day...

See this makes sense. When everything just falls out of the sky randomly, I can explain anything now.
