Diprotodon

I was at the Australian Museum a few weeks ago with a friend.
It had been a few years since I was last there and I believe it had been a while for my friend.

Whilst we were wandering around, we came across a recreation of Diprotodon optatum (I recently found out that it’s not just Diprotodon).

I have seen it before, but I forgot about it.

I decided to take this “dramatic” shot of it as I thought it would make a good photo.

When I look at it now, I feel it is a little too dramatic and kind of funny.

From what I’ve read, wombats and koalas are relatives of the Diprotodon, which makes sense as it was (based purely on appearance) a giant wombat crossed with a koala.

It is the largest known marsupial to have live and is also one of many Australian megafauna.

This is my thirty-seventh photo I’ve used for Leanne Cole‘s “Monochrome Madness“.

I recommend checking out what other people are submitting and also giving it a go.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

I'm some guy that does stuff. The standards. Creating amazing effigies, scaling mountains using my feet only and replacing the very fabric of reality. Serious time! I enjoy writing. I make music in some of my spare time. Currently working somewhat full time and studying as well. Also working on self-improvement. Hoping to one day fill the internet with enough insane ramblings to impress a cannibal rat ship. I have a page called MS Paint Masterpieces that you may be interested in checking out.
