“I was in Barbados last week on vacation and found this awesome pouty-mouthed crab on Bathsheba beach. Just look at his little surly face! I thought this would be a great addition to Cute Overload. I shot these photos, so you can credit me, Raena C.!”

Trisha H. promises her Japanese Chin, Yoshi, really is a happy dog! “Yoshi is a rescue that we could not imagine life without. When I took this picture, he had just finished chasing cows, so he’s a bit dirty. His hobbies include violently licking furniture, being confused, snuggling with his shih tzu sister, and looking at Cute Overload! I believe this photo is Cute Overload worthy! My furbabies and I love Cute Overload, keep doing what you do!” (OK, OK, since you mentioned Cute Overload three times!)

Master of the Cuteniverse

Some say, the white lion is like the spirit of the jungle. Iconic. Uncommon. Nebulous.

Meanwhile, has anybody seen the Pillsbury Doughboy lately? Hmmm.

This emerald hummingbird gem recently needed a little boost to get through the day.

Fresh air, flowers and a helping hand perked the flying jewel right up.

Amanda H. tells us, “This was on a rainy day in Estes Park, Colorado. I got up close to take a few pictures, and the little guy wasn’t fazed, so I held my hand out – he landed right on me! He must have been cold so we were best friends for just a few minutes.

How Spineless of Us

It has come to our attention that there is a serious shortage of posts featuring baby blobby cephalopods hitching rides on hermit crabs. So here you go.

Snailio Makes Itself Perfectly Clear

I don’t mean to be a pane but it’s not easy being transparent.

I’m fed up with birds crashing into me.

THIS JUST IN: Dimbi’s Debut

Or, as the Parc Zoologique & Botanique de Mulhouse in France would say, “Voila!”, which literally means, jeepers creepers where’d ya get those peepers?
Dimbi, the blue-eyed black lemur, a critically endangered species (boo, hiss), was born on March 8 (yay!) and just recently made his first public appearance.
See for yourself!

Worry Not!

We should very much like to take a moment now to discuss our views on fixing the world and all its problems. Right then, let’s get down to business, shall we? We’ll start with, oh my gosh look at that, a meezer in a sunbeam!
