Superpower: Cordiality and courage

As Guardian of the Marshlands, Swamps and Backwaters, Crag defies expectations with his heart of gold as a reminder to look beyond a rough surface to what is inside. While it might be hard to get past his crocodile looks, once Crag flashes his smile, he reveals his gift of congeniality, teaching others not to judge a book by its cover.

Albert's Lyrebird

Albert’s Lyrebird

(Menura alberti)

Superpower: Mimicry

Found in the subtropical rainforests of Australia, this bird is shy and more likely to be heard than seen, with a distinctive cry and melodious, territorial song.

  • It mimics other birds and animals in the forests they inhabit but is also known to mimic mechanical sounds such as a camera shutter or car alarm.

Often hidden in forests, marshes and ponds in eastern China, the Chinhai Spiny Newt is a stout salamander with a flattened body and head, and 12 knob-like, porous glands.

  • When attacked, the tips of their sharp, elongated ribs project through their large glands injecting painful, poisonous secretions into the mouth of the would-be predator.
  • They lead a secretive, terrestrial life outside of the breeding season, being inactive during the day, slow moving when active and are in hibernation from November to March.
Dingo

Dingo

(Canis lupus dingo)

Superpower: Freaky flexibility

While similar to dogs, the Australian Dingo is more agile with flexible joints and the ability to jump, climb and dig exceptionally well, making them excellent escape artists.

Superpower: Stinking

The European Wolverine is the largest member of the weasel family, found in the high mountains near the timberline or tundra in northern Eurasia and North America.

  • When they eat the toxic New Guinea beetle, they end up with neurotoxins that live in their skin and feathers.
  • The birds are not born with the poison but do pass it on to their young.
  • Their bright red or orange belly along with a strong odor they can emit, also help ward off predators.
Mutable Rain Frog

Mutable Rain Frog

(Pristimantis mutabilis)

Superpower: Hypersensitive hairs

Found in trees in India and Sri Lanka, this tarantula is the only species of its genus to start life lavender and grow into adulthood with iridescent blue hues.

  • They have fine hairs called trichobothria that are sensitive to movement, smell and taste, helping it to find prey and escape predators.

  • Their eyes have reflective tissue and protection for their eyes’ photoreceptors.
  • Their noses and antlers have many tiny blood vessels to prevent them from freezing.
Ruby Eyed Green Pitviper

Ruby-eyed Green Pitviper

(Cryptelytrops rubeus)

Superpower: Infrared vision

Little is known about this recently discovered (2011) viper found in forests within Vietnam and Cambodia

  • Pit organs in vipers’ faces have a membrane that detects infrared radiation from warm bodies, allowing them to “see” infrared and form thermal profiles of their prey.
  • They have especially long, hinged fangs that are hollow and rotate. Their venom travels down their hollow fangs and gets injected into their prey.
Rusty Patched Bumble Bee

Rusty Patched Bumble Bee

(Bombus affnis)

Superpower: Magnetism

Found in the Midwest and Northeastern U.S., this bee species is a large, fuzzy bee whose workers have a rusty colored patch on the second abdomen segment.

  • Flapping their wings creates a positive electrical charge on their hairy bodies which attracts the negatively charged pollen they transfer from flower to flower.
  • Their wings flap back and forth, not up and down, creating a mini hurricane.
Southern Bent Winged Bat

Southern Bent-Winged Bat

(Miniopterus orianae bassanii)

Superpower: Ultrasonic calling & hearing

This special bat is a micro-bat that roosts in caves near the coastal cliffs in southern Australia, using the same flight path nightly to forage for insects.

  • Bats' calls are ultrasonic which humans can’t hear unless we use special bat detectors.
Spotted Hyena

Spotted Hyena

(Crocuta crocuta)

Sunflower Seastar

Sunflower Sea Star

(Pycnopodia helianthoides)

  • They are a voracious predator traveling up to 40 inches per minute, capturing even large prey by disconnecting their skeleton to open their mouth wide.
Walrus

Walrus

(Odobenus rosmarus)

Superpower: Self-inflating flotation

The Odobenus rosmarus, Latin for "tooth-walking sea-horse," is found living in herds in the Artic where blubber protects them from freezing temperatures.

  • Two air sacs in their neck inflate to create buoyancy like a life preserver and hold the air-breathing mammal’s head above water while it sleeps.
  • The sacs are also used for communication including a bell-like sound called “chiming” as well as a booming sound males make when arguing or attracting females.

Kids Unboxing Yowie Surprise Inside Chocolates: Colors of the Animal Kingdom!

Yowie (chocolate)

Chocolate

Yowies and an example of an included toy

Yowie is a confectionery and publishing brand originating in Australia in 1995 by Cadbury and Kidcorp. It was one of the top selling chocolates in Australia in the late 1990s and early 2000s, selling over a million units a week. After a break of nearly a decade, Yowie relaunched in 2014 for US markets.[1]

History[edit]

Yowie began as the brainchild of English-born advertising man, illustrator and author Geoff Pike and South African-Australian advertising director and novelist Bryce Courtenay. After serving in the navy, Pike jumped ship in Australia, finding work as a jackaroo on remote cattle stations. He became enchanted by Australia’s outback and its unique wildlife, and devoted his free time to nursing injured and orphaned animals back to health.

Many decades later, after a successful career in advertising, Pike drew on these early bush experiences and his love of wild places to create the Yowie Kingdom, a fictional magical realm free of the destructive influence of humanity, where threatened wildlife finds a safe haven.

Inspired by Australian folklore, Pike borrowed the mythical man-like creature the Yowie, reputed to roam the Australian bush. To watch over the fictional Yowie Kingdom and its animals and plants, Pike created six Yowie characters, each related to a well-known Australian animal, and each one guardian of key wild habitats:

Additional characters included animal companions for each of the six Yowie and Balthizar the Bunyip, ruler of the Yowie Kingdom. To represent the threats facing the world’s natural habitats and threatened species, Pike created the Grumkin, careless creatures constantly seeking to destroy the harmony of the Yowie Kingdom. The Grumkins were: Munch (careless building, enemy of Rumble), Blob (pollution, enemy of Crag), Ooz (also pollution, enemy of Squish), Spark (careless firelighting, enemy of Nap), Slob (littering, enemy of Ditty) and Chomp the Tiger Toothed Tree Chomper (deforestation, enemy of Boof).

Continuing with the development of the Yowie concept and characters, Pike enlisted the aid of long-time friend, fellow advertising man and best-selling author Bryce Courtenay. They hit upon the idea of a confectionery product as a vehicle for Yowie, and in 1994 pitched the concept to confectionery giant Cadbury.

After three years developing the characters and the manufacturing process, in 1997 Cadbury launched Yowie as a foil-wrapped character-shaped milk chocolate shell containing a plastic capsule. Within the capsule was a multi-part collectable model of a native Australian or New Zealand animal, together with a leaflet featuring information, a photo of the animal and assembly instructions for the collectable. The first series featured 50 animals, plus figurines of each of the six Yowie characters.[2]

Cadbury Yowie was selling over one million units weekly and in its first year sold 2.5 Yowies for every man, woman and child in Australia.[3] The brand won multiple industry awards in Australia and internationally, including Best Global Supermarket Product and Best Global Confectionery Product at the 1997 Sial international food industry awards in Paris.[citation needed]

A Yowie collector scene soon emerged with collector clubs forming across Australia and New Zealand and websites devoted to displaying and swapping Yowie collectables.

Cadbury Yowie was also released in Singapore, Japan and the UK.

Publishing and merchandising[edit]

To coincide with the release of Cadbury Yowie, a series of Yowie books was released, telling the stories of the Yowie characters as they protect their domains from the threat of the Grumkin. Written by Geoff Pike and Bryce Courtenay and illustrated by award-winning artists Christopher Minos and Helen Steele, the series sold more than 2 million copies, topping the Australian best-seller lists for children’s books.[citation needed]

Numerous lines of Yowie merchandise were produced, including soft toys, clothing, games, activity books, and Yowie music CDs.

Further Yowie series[edit]

Following the success of the first series of Yowie collectables, a second series was released in 1998, this time featuring 50 new animals.

The third series of Yowie, released in early 1999, was composed of 50 figurines and 6 limited edition mini Grumkins. This series remained the most common of all the series, extending into 2002, with further scattered releases until the series ended in 2005.

The fourth series was released in late 1999 and featured ‘Yowie World’ collectables, with animals from beyond Australia and New Zealand, as well as 6 limited edition crystal Yowies, 6 ‘Yowie playmates’ and a Lord Balthizzar figurine. It remained the second-most popular series, extending until 2005.

Yowie and the Lost Kingdoms[edit]

In 2000, Yowie teamed up with the Australian Museum to create Yowie and the Lost Kingdoms, the series of collectables featuring extinct animals from around the world and across the geological ages, including dinosaurs and other reptiles as well as extinct Australian megafauna. The Lost Kingdoms series was based on illustrations by Dr Anne Musser of the Australian Museum and masterminded by the director of the museum Dr Michael Archer. The museum presented an exhibition of fossils and reconstructions linking to the series. Additionally, the packaging got overhauled so that the wrappers of the Lost Kingdoms Yowies could be distinguished by the sign and shovel being held in their paws.

Series A had 50 prehistoric figurines and 6 limited edition skulls. It was later replaced by Series B, released in 2001, which had 30 figurines and 6 limited edition glow-in-the-dark dinosaurs. In 2002 the third and final series, Series C, was released, with 30 figurines and 6 limited edition dazzling dinosaurs.

Yowie Adventures[edit]

In 2001, Yowie Adventures was released, based around comic-strip stories in which the Yowie and their friends save endangered animals from the onslaught of the Grumkin. The series had 30 figurines, and was often regarded as the rarest series, considering supplies seemed limited. It is the most highly sought-after series of all Yowies.[citation needed] The series consisted of 6 animals, 6 enemies, 6 "yurts", 6 helpers and 6 transports. The series was updated in 2002 with a second release with 30 figurines, similar to the previous series, except more animals appeared in this series and the Yowie and helpers were replaced with Grumkins and helpers.

Yowie Forgotten Friends[edit]

In 2003 and 2004, Yowie Forgotten Friends was released. Featuring recently extinct animals, the series highlighted the increasing levels of species extinction and the importance of protecting threatened wildlife and habitats. The Forgotten Friends Series A comprised 30 figurines, with six glow-in-the-dark Yowie. In 2004, Series B of the Forgotten Friends range was released, this time with five limited edition glow-in-the-dark Grumkins. Spark was left out as it was regarded as a bad message to children.

Yowie relaunch[edit]

Production of Cadbury Yowie was discontinued in 2005 following a dispute between Cadbury and the Yowie creators. In 2012 a new company, Yowie Group, was formed to relaunch the brand. A series of 24 solid one-piece collectables, including 18 animals and six Yowie character models, was designed and manufactured. The one-piece format enabled far more lifelike collectables as well as improved product safety.

The first series features the following animals:

  • African Grass Owl
  • Alpaca
  • American Bison
  • Brown Bear
  • Caracal
  • Common Clownfish
  • Emperor Penguin
  • European Rabbit
  • Fennec Fox
  • Galapagos Tortoise
  • Giant Anteater
  • Giant Panda
  • Gray Wolf
  • North American Beaver
  • Platypus
  • Polar Bear
  • Red Kangaroo
  • Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat

Production of the chocolate and final assembly was taken over by Whetstone Chocolates, based in Florida.

In July 2014, the first new Yowie products went on sale in the US.

Yowie products returned to Australian retail shelves in April 2017.[4]

In 2018, Yowie had an animated series Yowasis narrated by Mel Gibson. It ran for seven episodes.

Whose shop is this? Creative director and tastemaker Shannon Maldonado's tiny Queen Village shop has an outsized presence thanks to its impeccably-curated and colorful collection of gifts, art objects and housewares. Her design cred is dead serious, but—as evidenced by the selection, collaborations, and her own laid back demeanor—the brand doesn’t take itself too seriously.  What can we find here, or what should we look for? Maldonado sells a wide range of products with common threads: beautiful designs in vivid hues: curvilinear candles and catchall trays from Barcelona’s Octaevo, avant-garde vases from New York design studio Chen & Kai, Cold Picnic bath mats, and Dusen Dusen textiles. Black-owned businesses are also spotlighted. If money’s no object, what goes in the cart? A delicate-but-bold Sophie Lou Jacobsen vase ($210), which doubles as artwork with or without the flowers. The entirety of Maldonado’s latest capsule collection of color-saturated sweats and tees, inspired by the brands she loved growing up—Gap, Esprit, Benetton. (Prices range from $45 to $85 per piece.) And … what if we’re on a budget? A soft crew shirt in Washed Lime from Maldonado’s new YOWIE Everyday collection for $45 and a black splatter mug for $8—Maldonado’s inventory constantly changes, but these enamelware vessels have been a mainstay since she started the brand in 2016. Who else shops here? Design buffs, Instagram influencers, anyone who appreciates beauty in everyday objects. Maldonado and Yowie have a reputation for being a paragon of cool in Philly, and those in the know flock to this shop.

And if on the street and in the store we spoke in Russian, then entering the room, we immediately switched to our native language. And the most amazing thing, driving it into emotion, then into cognitive dissonance, turned out to be that Toria also fully owned it.

She spoke fluently, practically without an accent, but with a reprimand of the area where her husband was from, and understood. Absolutely everything, no matter what was discussed: from everyday issues to political, from sports terms to sexual terms.
