WE NEED TO talk about a special boy called Tal’ngay Dha’run the cutest little sky puppy flying fox in the world right now.
Rescuedlate last year in the small town of Canungra on the Gold Coast, Tal’ngay was suffering from severe sunburn when staff from the Australian Bat Clinic noticed him on the ground.
Leucism is a pigment disorder that’s similar to albinism in that it causes a loss of pigmentation, resulting in beautifully pale individuals like Omo, the leucistic giraffe , and this wonderful Texas rat snake.
But unlike albinism, which blocks the body from producing any melanin the pigment that gives our hair, skin, and eyes their colour leucism is just a partial loss of pigment.
That means leucistic animals retain some of their regular colour, like this ridiculously handsome peacock, and the white lion below, which still has pigment in his eyes and lips:
When it comes to our little bat friend, his leucism has given him mostly white fur and translucent wings, except for the lovely big black splotches that give him a cow print effect:

And check out his adorable mismatched ears:
Tal’ngay is a grey headed flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus), the largest species of bat in Australia, which usually sports dark grey fur, pitch black wings, and a bright red neck collar.
Because Tal’ngay isn’t protected by the dark colours of his peers, he’d either be picked off by predators or sunburnt to death in the wild, so the Australian Bat Clinic decided to keep him as a permanent resident.
Once they were confident that he would survive his sunburns, the staff crowd sourced his name,
and chose Tal’ngay Dha’run in recognition of the indigenous Yugambeh Tribe of the local area:
“There are two words ‘Tal’ngai’, which means ‘white’, and ‘Dha’run’, which means ‘Wing’. It is pronounced Talingi Darrun with the emphasis on the T, and the ING and the I in the first name, and the D in the second name.”
This match felt like the culmination of a months worth of growing apathy around Stamford Bridge.1. Drink up”Probably drinking lots of fluids is the most important thing,” Dr Hazell explains, “because although then you’ll probably be getting up to pee all the time you’re probably going to do that anyway it should be a bit less sore because the urine is more dilute, then it’s a bit less uncomfortable.” Drink water, and avoid sugary or acidic juices and soft drinks.”Feels great, feels great,” said Sherba.Just a few weeks later on April 18, Fox wrote. “Dear folks, well today is Sunday and we have the day off. I didn’t get to go to church because of the mumps quarantine. Yesterday we went to the rifle range. I was right next to our platoon sergeant. He made expert rifleman. He is really tough. If we ever go across I want to be with him. It will be at least a year before we get across and by that time I think the war will be over. From Camp Hood we will more than likely go to another camp. I think we will get nearer home then. The Tank Destroyers are the ones that stopped the Germans in North Africa. After this war the tanks will be obsolete, because we have so many ways of stopping them. Boy there’s enough Tank Destroyers in our camp alone to wipe out all the German and Jap tanks. Don’t worry though; I don’t think I will ever see any action. If we do it will just be mopping up. Rich tried to put his parent’s minds at ease in a letter dated April 21, 1943. “Dear Folks, I received your letter yesterday but haven’t had a chance to answer. We were out on night problems last night and we go out again tonight. I can say this, I was very glad to hear that Bobby was a prisoner. If he were not captured I would be worried about him fighting the japs. Fox family. Don’t believe all that stuff you hear about the Japs mistreating prisoners. The officers here tell us that they do not mistreat you because we will do the same to their prisoners. He and I will both be home in a little while. The sergeant said he would be glad to receive a notice like that. Love, Rich.”Newark schools helps kids tackle stressAnd if you think you have the flu, do not come to the emergency room; call your primary care doctor first. The ERs are packed with sick people,
