    Isn’t that last picture from the Opening Ceremonies at Sochi?

  2. Dog Lover says:


    I can’t possibly be objective since – next to puppehs – orangs are my most favoritest animal in the whole world. And a bebbeh orang? It doesn’t get any cuter than that.

  3. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    Orangs are definitely my favorite primate.

  4. I will think of that first pic whenever someone talks about clutching their pearls.

    I want to know the story behind the second pic.

  5. EVerybody was kung fu fighting…….those bugs are fast as lightning…….
    Good example of praying mantis school of martial arts

  6. Smartypants says:

    So mantises are the cheerleaders of the insect world? Who knew?

  7. AWW 😀 I just LOVE the picture of the kitty and the lion 😀

  8. Clairdelune says:

    The adorabuhl bebbeh orang looks amazingly HUMAN. Impossible to deny the relationship.

  9. Clairdelune says:

    Me too, love the way the kitty is rubbing his face on the lion to claim him as HIS territory… and the lion seems to enjoy it!

  10. I just want to know just where in mommy’s fur that little guy is popping out from? I can’t make out any appendages.

  11. That’s not real, is it?
