This is Q in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge
Up until today the Quoll was just another entry in the long list of animals you can have at SandboxFarm to me. Then I looked them up.
OMIGOD they are so cute they should be ILLEGAL. However, since they are also considered apex predators, and are relatives of the Tasmanian Devil I suspect they really hate it when people go – OMG CUUUUTE – and tend to bite. Below are the thumbnails of the two new Quoll coloring pages. For the purist, these are Tiger Quolls – identifiable by the spots on their tails.
As always click on the thumbnails or the links to go to the coloring pages.

The little Ocelot breaks every rule about the spotted wild cats I’ve been drawing lately. They have solid spots – AND rosettes – AND some rosettes have dots in the center – AND to top it all off, their spots seem to neatly arrange themselves into, well, more or less stripes. Ocelots are about the same size as a large housecat – and like our domestic cats they apparently do not think rules should apply to them

This isn’t the only art I’ve done today, check out “Ocean on my Window” over at Foovay’s Cauldron.
If I keep going as I have been with one to four coloring pages today until the end of April, there is a very good possibility I’m going to have to change all my headings to say “Over FIVE HUNDRED original coloring pages”. Cool!
This is J in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge
I thought for J I’d choose between the “J” animals at SandboxFarm since the players there were some of my first and best users of Color-Your-Own.com. I had Jackal, Jaguar, Jerboa, and Jellyfish to choose from. I looked a jellyfish but they have this ethereal beauty that I think would have to be captured in something like velvet painting – neon colors on black – LOL. Jerboas were cute, but the cutest was the Long Eared Jerboa, and we don’t have that one on SandboxFarm. I can, however, remedy that next time I buy tokens I’ve already done Jaguars. So that left Jackals.
And then I went looking at Jackals and found myself enchanted. They have that same wry, humorous “I am SO up to something” look that our delightfully obnoxious coyotes have here in the southwest. I’m hooked. I hope you like them, too.

Yep, I’m plugging my favorite game a lot. It needs some new blood. I think the problem may be that it is marketed to children as mmorpg when it is really more of an adults sim game. You should try it
Two free printable leopard coloring pages on the heels of this horrific news story, about a rare leopard that was captured, beaten, tortured, and then burned alive by angry villagers – as forest officials looked on.
If you are wondering why all the big cats – yes, there is a Squidoo lens in all of this – soon, soon. More big kitties to go. As always you can click on the thumbnails or here are the links for larger printable sizes;
Later today or tomorrow – something lighter for the weekend – a LOT lighter
Inspired by this article about the efforts to conserve the Jaguar in Costa Rica as well as the articles a few months ago about the death of the last KNOWN jaguar in the United States (who was in Arizona) I created these this Jaguar Headstudy Coloring Page and another Coloring Page of a Laying Down Jaguar. You can click here or on the thumbnails for the full size images. I plan to do another “action” sort of montage of jaguars, as well as some clip art and Zazzle products – so be sure and check back in the next few days for those, as well as some more big cat coloring pages, including leopards, black panthers, cheetahs, snow leopards and clouded leopards.
I’m going to get back to those Irish subjects, and Easter as well – I haven’t forgotten. Gotten sidetracked maybe, but not forgotten
Are you Polar Bear Aware?
Arctic Polar Bear Cub Coloring Page
These magnificent animals are in serious danger of disappearing as their environment vanishes and they come into conflict with humans. They are just one symptom of the disappearance of the Arctic ice caused by global warming. I hope you enjoy thisArctic Polar Bear Cub Coloring Page
