Oh, the Hugged Manatee!

This little orphan isn’t a huge manatee, but she will be, thanks to the round-the-clock care of Sea World, which has rescued 23 manatees in 2010. The park hopes to return her to the wild once she’s big enough.

Nice work, Nick G. and everyone at Sea World.

Update: Scroll down for video! Thanks, X-girl!

GREETINGS, SCALELESS IMBECILE!

I AM STAN, FEARLESS LEADER OF ALL SNAKES ON A PLANE IN A HOODIE!

Ehn!

That is One Unique Fingerprint

If you think this is weird, you should see the piglet squid he has on his thumb.

You just can’t shake that sucker, Patrick W. And Happy Birthday!

In Frog We Trust.

Look, I don’t like to brag, but my pad is better than yours.

Frogpole’s a dime a dozen, Amy J.

Meecro-Peeg!

People, this video is *not* to be missed. Enter “Carnitas” the Wonder Piglet! He will grow to be about 15 pounds total and isn’t for eatin’.

Barbarella F., your commentary is what we’d all sound like watching this. Great video.

Well, Somebody Forgot to Moisturize

“Goodness, honey, (slurp) you’re just as dry as a (slurp) little ol’ piece of sandpaper, (slurp) I do de-clay-yuh! Are you (slurp) wearing enough sunscreen, dearie?”

Tonguetastic Christina S. shot this one.

Just Five More Minutes, Rick

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the alarm clock from Hell. Obviously, this kitty would never run around and desert you — he can’t even RickRoll out of bed.

Let’s play Capybara-Wombat-Squirrel-monk

Sometimes photos of animals come into CO that are surely cute but a little – shall we say – less obvious to decipher.

Now, we know what this little guy is, but do you?

Guessing the correct animal gets you bragging rights only. “Little Baby Boy” (actual name) is staying with Danny W.

Uh, Could I Have My Pen Back?

Listen, sorry to bother you while you’re eating, but I was filling out your feeding chart just now, and my pen seems to have fallen into your mixed greens. And that was kind of my favorite lime green Flair felt-tip, probably wouldn’t agree with you anyway, so if you’ll hold still for a moment, I’ll just reach in and…

You know, on second thought, you go ahead. Really, that’s fine.
