This is some serious snorfing action


Snorf. [Camera tips over due to vacuum]


Photograph by Sean Crane of a young bearded piglet in Tanjung Puting National Park in Borneo, Indonesia. They have some serious snorting going on over there. I can almost feel the wind rushing in that direction. Fabulousness brought to you by National Geographic, natch!

    Yikes! I can’t decide if this photo is cute or disturbing. Maybe it’s cutesturbing…

  2. This piglet nose how to get good publicity.

  3. This is a preview of NOSEVEMBER, no?

  10. I vote cute on the little snorfmeister, but I LOVE the word “cutesturbing” and I thank AuntieMame for coining it!

  11. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    That’s what she said. 😀

  14. Getting a jump on Nosevember?

  15. His nostrils are bigger than his eyes!!

  16. I suddenly feel the need to vacuum.

  17. Awesome pic. 🙂

  18. Either that little piggy has been lying up a storm or someone attached a vacuum hose to that poor little bearded pig’s face.

    (Btw, I’m with Jenn: Awesome pic.)

  19. What an INCREDIBLE pic!! Huge props.

  20. I would beep that nose, but I worry about getting sucked into that thing and ending up in Narnia somehow.

  21. Now THIS is a schnozzle worthy of its name ❤
    Ahh, sweetness *dies*

  22. Ahn, a pink, probing, prehensile snouty, perfect for kissing [shifty eyes….]

  23. Cutesturbing – excellent!

    I tried to beep, but got sucked in.

  24. MissKitty says:

    wow… now THAT is a schnozzle.
    *golf clap*

  25. Desdemona says:

    OK, now you’ve done it — this is the second one this week from Nat.Geo. You are forcing me to bookmark them in my cute-files!

  26. Boy, if this is on ‘Tocktober, Nosember will be really great!?

  27. Smooch!!! I just wanna keeess that snorffly pink nose.

  28. chet, ruby, and miaoux's mommeh says:

    ooh, ohh, what’s the name of the 2 stripey babies in the background, anyone?

    I lurve this piggy’s snozzette, and his little eyes!

  29. Mamamclain says:

    The wall-eyed look and the loooooooooooong nose… very interesting, but very cute concept.

  30. divinebluesky says:

    holey cannolli, what a snout!

  31. Von Zeppelin says:

    His secret identity is mild mannered reporter Philbert Desanex.

  32. I wonder if he knows any Schnozzle Durante numbers
    “Inka dinka doo
    adinka dee
    adinka doo”

  33. E-Yew, you wanna smooch that schnozzle, Cath??

  34. Marianne H says:

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha omg that just keeled me over laughing. CUUUUUUUTE!

  35. MC Squared says:

    It reminds me of Wonder Warthog.

  36. Von Zeppelin says:

    MC Squared, I modestly refer you to my post # 31 above. Most of these CO folks are too genteel to have read those cartoons back in the day. You want to come to my place, have a few beers, and look at some comics?

  37. MC Squared says:

    I forgot about his alter ego, Philbert Desanex. I just remember his nose freaked me out. I seem to remember something about rubber weevils.

  38. I second, third, fourth or whatever the cutesturbing tag but did anyone notice the Nightmare tag?

    Um, was it there before or am I just slow to notice it? *shifty eyes*

  39. Gert Deli says:

    What is that a mixture of a pig and an anteater or something

  40. rubber duck says:


    Pig snouts are one of the cutest things in the world, but never saw one THIS size!

    Here’s another shot of the same piggy. That’s a curious little fellow! 🙂
