While part of the USA midwest is dealing with SNOW (checks calendar, it’s only May) it’s been a TAD on the warm side in the San Francisco Bay Area. These guys at the SF Zoo are soaking up the solars and don’t seem to mind the temp one bit. [Say like Cliff Claven:] “Ah, little SPF 15’ll do the trick.”

“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!)

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

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

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.
