Spiny Stocking Stuffers

The Perfect Stocking Stuffer! Fits right in!

Deb K. reports from Down Undah: “I saw some really cute photos on the internet of some gorgeous ‘puggles’ at Perth Zoo. I think the Australian native echidnas give hedgehogs a run for their money!”

“The photo where the puggle Babbin has his little tongue out is so so cute I had to share!”

  1. This is not a real animal, it is a cartoon.

  2. Woah! That’s an impressive tongue!

    I know what you mean, skippymom. 😛

  4. Cutest tongue EVAR.

  5. Here’s a fun thing to do with the first picture. Pretend that the scale is reading 390 pounds and imagine how big this guy would be.

  6. That reminds me. I really must shave my legs soon.

  7. Pretty sure Gene Simmons has trademarked that tongue.

  8. That tongue just made me giggle & want to know what it would feel like on MY hand.
    But then I giggle when my hand gets licks from my cats. “it TICKLES !!!!”

  9. Babbin’s momma looks like she belongs in an ’80s hairband. Too qte!

  14. I want to be first in line to snuggle the puggle!

    Puggles are everywhere right now, it seems! This one is particularly insanely adorable — that tongue is ridiculous! 🙂

  21. I’ll just leave this here:

  22. ahhh! what does that thing grow up to be?!?!?!

  23. Alice Shortcake says:

    ‘Tis a brand spanking new echidna.

  24. Don’t forget to put your name on that lunch box!

  25. I call matchingks in the first pic and then I guess I’ll phone in ded for the rest, including the video. My only question is… why am I not that woman feeding and cleaning that puggle??? The injustice just never ends!

  26. WIN!!!!

    “I’m forever blowing bubbles, milky bubbles in the air…”
