EATING TINY PIZZA!!! (Check here for the Burrito Version!)
Personally, I always go for “Wombat.” It’s just funny. But there’s another candidate brought to our attention by Tracey M. “So devilishly cute, makes me think it was born in Japan. But no, it was at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. Four hooves will fit on a Canadian dollar – ahn.” Who’s she talkin’ ’bout?
Say it out loud. Do it right now. We’ll wait.
Doesn’t it make you smile? Of course. So what’s the better name, Klipspringer or Wombat? Take the Poll! BTW, this very Klipspringer needs its own name!
So that’s one of our candidates, and LOOK OUT ’cause here comes the other.
Earlier in the week, we told ya about the new Red Panda that’s moved into the SF Zoo. They had a media day yesterday and revealed his name, “Tenzing.” Check out these fantastic photos from The Furrtographer!
U ask, “Tenzing?”
…who scaled Mount Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953.
Gettin’ a little TOO up close and personal.
Let’s mosey down to Denton, Texas- just north of Big D, y’all- and check in at BUN CENTRAL, where Amy M. took these videos.
“Diana Leggett runs WildRescue Inc in Denton, Texas. She has 100+ rabbits of all ages and breeds up for adoption. She rescues them from terrible situations and makes sure that each and every bun is loved, gets the medical attention they need and are all spayed/neutered.”
“She also takes in orphaned baby Cottontails and keeps them safe and fed until they are strong enough to be released back into the wild. She does it on a shoestring budget with a handful of volunteers. Here’s a blurb from the WildRescue website, “There are far more domestic rabbits coming into DFW area shelters then there are people wanting to adopt. Our goal is to find them fur-ever loving families, but until we do, they have the Sanctuary.”
Nevah knew that birdehs could have mohawks. In Providence Rhode Island, they can!

But, ya’ll keep coming back and telling us you can handle it…
(Ha, ha, ha! You say it like you believe it!)

[Used to be a Nike™ guy, but these come in “Extra Wide” sizes, which means I got more room to move around. I wish the Hoomin had used Odor Eaters, though.]
