Marauding Marsupials

I would beg to differ with Mr. NZ Bear in his Ecosystem heirachy that Marauding Marsupials are afforded a higher place on the evolutionary blogogeny than Adorable Little Rodents. I seem to recall that it was the placental mammals such as little homeothermic rodents that account for the fact that Marsupials survive in any great degree only on island refuges (such as Australia) where rats and their kin did not get the upper hand. Nevertheless, I will be happy among the pouched mammals on Mr. Bear's evolutionary ladder, and happy to announce the new and improved stats on his fine site. For those who have publically accessible SiteMeter code on their weblogs, NZB now provides a ranking according to number of visitors, an additional way of humbling lower organisms with whom I keep company. The few. The Chosen. The Fragments Readers.

ummm, possums, anyone?

evolution isn't a chain of progress, with some species more "advanced" than others. so different creatures for different levels of web.fame is kind of a bogus concept from the get-go.

Anita said what I was going to say. More succinctly, probably. :)
