I didn't even know the little rodents were carnivores.

I stand corrected. Honestly thought they were squirrel relatives until this very hour. And it appears they are omnivores.

The discovery, Distel adds, sheds light on the evolution of symbiotic relationships between sulphur-oxidising organisms and other creatures, and backs up the possibility that sunken wood might have played a role in how such species ended up in locations such as deep sea hydrothermal vents. To me it was almost like finding a dinosaur something that was pretty much only known by fossils, he said.

This is rather silly IMO, because the reason Mad Cow spread was carcasses being used to make cow feed, not rotting carcasses out in fields. It is the Job of the Buzzards to clean up carcasses to inhibit the spread of disease. This is why they piss and shit on their own feet, to sanitize them after jumping around in diseased guts.

I think the head poking out of the tree trunk is the eclectic Eclectus parrot



a bit like hornbills, the bright red female locks herself in a hollow tree for 11 months of the year and waits for the menfolk to feed her

Quote:
Female eclectus, on the other hand, almost never leave their nest tree once they have found a suitable hole to nest in, so they remain dependent upon their mates to forage for them while they remain with their tree, defending it against all challengers. Because there is fewer than one nest hollow per square kilometre of rainforest, female eclectus parrots have sometimes been observed fighting to the death over this rare and precious resource. Because they can easily see each other, the females brilliant scarlet colouring serves as a visual warning to potential interlopers that a particular tree is occupied. Predatory birds can also see the females contrasting plumage, especially because she often positions herself prominently on top of her nest tree, but she quickly retreats into the safety of her nest hollow when threatened.

Because of the rarity of nest hollows, eclectus parrots have evolved a fascinating mating system. Limited nesting opportunities prevents this species from establishing a monogamous pairing, which is common amongst parrots, and it also prevents a classical polyandrous mating system where the female competes for and mates with several males who have their own nests. Instead, the rarity of nest hollows causes eclectus parrots to maximise their reproductive output by evolving cooperative polyandry. This is where the female mates with two or more males and all of them remain together to raise the chicks. The resident female, who cannot leave her nest tree for fear of losing possession of it, is dependent upon being fed by a number of males  Heinsohn has observed as many as seven males at one nest tree. Are these extra males related to each other or to the resident female? Originally, it was thought that they were related or that they might be offspring from previous nests that had not yet dispersed. But molecular data reveal that neither scenario is the case.
