Built-in, ready to go

Some peeps are reeeeally lucky—they’re born with snorgle action built-in. Tapirs and Aardvaaaarks have it MADE. They barely breathe in, and it’s INSTA-SNORG. Look at this lil’ guy!

    Snorgle indeed!!!!! Haute snauze!

  2. Hey, I was just wondering if I should send that in! LoL!

  3. BTW, Meg: Please check out the pictures I sent you! I would really appreciate it!

  4. LOL. rule 7 in full effect!
    (Rule of Cuteness #7: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute)

    i think there should be a built-in-snorgle section. there’s been a couple of them lately 🙂

  5. comical ear-and-limb-to-body ratio!!!

  6. rainbow says:

    OMG!!!!!! i am falling down dead from the cuteness.

  7. Oh! The ears! The toes! The teeny shoulders! The SNOUT! *swoon*

  8. I don’t see a mouth
    Does the nose absorb food?
    I’m not passing judgement
    Don’t want to be rude;
    These are called aardvarks
    They eat how they please
    And all I’m saying is:
    Take care when they sneeze!

  9. punkpie says:

    LOL, more proof that God has a sense of humor!

  10. cool elephant, rabbit, pig thing!

  11. Ahn. I want to be snorgled by an aardvark.

  12. Total Rule number seven right there. D’aw!

  13. There must be a new Rule of Cuteness dictated by this photo: growing into your limbs!

  14. Pointy ears!!!

  15. AARDVARKS!!! (I’m not yelling, juat being emphatic.) Swoon.

    Some months back, I put a photo of a baby African aardvark (name o’ Gracie) on the CuteTracker. And finally, here comes the payoff!

    A thousand thousand thanks, Meg.

    e 22222see

  16. Oh, BTW, can we have a “snorle/snorgling” category? Some days I just need a virutal snorgle or two, and I bet I’v got company…

  17. Li’l Aardvark Dude is a li’l aardvark dudette named Paatsy. <3

  18. Oh, and E. Collison, the mama aardvark in this picture IS Gracie!

  19. DavidBoBavid says:

    look at those ears!!! omg.. they must be nibbled!

  20. me likeys. they are so surreal, like movie props!

  21. the little aardvark dude is smiling!! SMILING!! ::collapses in pile of cute-coma-itude::

  22. I think everyone should travel with his personal doppelganger.

  23. “Oh, and E. Collison, the mama aardvark in this picture IS Gracie!”

    Could they be related? Enquiring minds want to know.

  24. Just to try & clarify… “snorg” and “snorgle” are really verbs:

    …though it looks like a noun variation is trying to emerge here, meaning something like “trunk” (like on the front end of an elephant) or “proboscis” (Jimmy Durante) apparently.

  25. Methinks they be like bunnypigs.

  26. or piggyrabbits?

  27. wooshie-woo….

  28. I think ‘Earth-pig’ is the preferred nomenclature, though you should inquire with Cerebus to be sure.

  29. SO CUTE!!! love the ears!!!

  30. The ears! The eeeeeeears…

  31. English Chick says:

    My Lord thats cute. Big wiggly noses!!

    Im in heaven <3

  32. E. Collison:

    “One of the newest additions to the Brookfield Zoo, a female aardvark named Paatsy, right, sticks close to her mother, Gracie, during mealtime Thursday, May 25, 2006, at the zoo in Brookfield, Ill. It will still be several more weeks before Paatsy, born March 30, makes her debut before zoo visitors.”

    Sandy, that thang…part rabbit? Naw,please take another look 🙂

  34. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    Okay Sandy…I too took another look…
    If by part rabbit you mean those ears…I agree with ya! 🙂 Whoa! Massive…very rabbit like
    but that rabbit would be from King Kongville. LOL!

  35. Dustbunny says:

    Aaardvark is one of the funniest animal names, IMO. Along with yak, wildebeest and gnu. Aardvark…aardvark…I just like saying that : )

  36. Piggybuns, perhaps?

    I like the word “aardvark,” myself. And I’ve got a huge soft spot for anteaters…

  37. Dustbunny says:

    Speaking of anteaters, what are these 2 eating? Is it *ant*ipasto or the main course…erm…antree??

  38. i know these aardvarks are gurlz, but i can’t help hearing the jackie mason voice from “the ant & the aardvark” cartoon from the 70’s when i look at this picture!

  39. I want one!!! I have plenty of ants in my back yard too. He’s got ears like my chihuahua! 😛

  40. Barton, you’re right. Aardvark means “earth pig” in-I think Afrikaans. (They like their double a’s there. Aardvark, Aardwolf, Afrikaans- Notice a connection?) But I hate aarvarks. I hate them. They’re smelly, ugly, and did I mention ugly? I think I did. Anteaters are so much better-at least they have noticeable fur. Am I the only person here that hates aardvarks? Grrr!
