Do Our Tails Make Our ‘Tocks Look Big?

A trifecta of tiny tailed ‘tock titans:



“Peeg ‘tocks, from Dropstone Farms, Orting, Washington. He’s certainly having a good time wallowing in his mud soup! ” -Susan H.
“Taciturn pachyderm at Woodland Zoo, Seattle, WA. Despite much coaxing and cajoling from onlookers, (s)he was having nothing to do with any of us.”  -Addicted follower, Margaret M.
“This lovely okapi lives at the London Zoo. A shy creature that originates from the Congo , was discovered in 1901.” -Helen  O. “PS Your site is my happiest addiction! Thank you for the overload of cute you share!!!”



  1. Mary (the first) says:

    I’ll state the obvious, okapis look like a mix of zebra and .. some kind of deer, I guess. Quite lovely, anyway.

  2. Okapi butt! Okapi butt! *singsong*

  3. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I like big butts and I cannot lie??

  4. Smartypants says:

    Yes – reminds me of that Zonkey (zebra-donkey) that was all over Teh Interwebs a few months ago.

  5. The ephelant looks as if he needs a little chiroprac-tock-tic work on his tail.

  6. Zebra pants!

  7. OKAPI for the win! They are small stripey giraffes — no, really!! If you could see the side or front view, you’d see they have that funky shoulder thing and the gorgeous long, complex head shape of a giraffe. And the long blue tongue, too. But since they are rain forest critters, they need the ‘follow me’ stripes to not lose each other in the dim.
    Yes, they are my favorite animal. Because they are awesome AND a great Scrabble word.
