The Rufous Bettong

#doodlewashMay2022: Scale. The bettongs are kangaroo rats – small in scale next to kangaroos, but the largest of the kangaroo rats.

Did you know the rufous bettongs scientific name (Aepyprymnus rufescens) means “reddish high-rump”? Despite their reddish name, they range in color from reddish brown to pale gray.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
