My sons a little toerag
he’ll be the death of me
He thinks he
's tough and plays so rough
he climbs up every tree

When he isn’t raiding bee hives
he thinks he’s Turpin's friend
and holds up all my neighbours
when will his terror end

BFM's are thought to be a lesser known west European relative of the Himalayan yeti, although their colouring and habits also give some credence to the theory that they may be related to Pandas.  

An endangered species they are now restricted  to a small corner of England where they live out a happy existence in one of the remaining parts of what used to be Sherwood forest. As adults these are inquisitive, friendly animals, incredibly placid and loving in nature however young BFM's are far more boisterous and are very prone to mischief making - much to the concern of their parents.  

BFM's are vegetarian living on a diet of fruits, nuts and herbs although all ages have a pronounced passion for honey. Males differ from females only by the black markings on their paws, although older males do have a tendency to loose their longer head tresses. Slow to mature BFM's mate for life and procreation occurs once in three years producing litters of no more than two offspring. They are not nocturnal although the young ones are so lively they keep you up half the night and then refuse to get up until around lunch time - much the same as our own offspring.
