Do You Cutedoku?

Hey CO Peeps, a Sudoku just for you! Every 2×2 block must have one kitten, bunny, pup and hedgie. Same for every row and column.   Solve it in the comments! How hard can it be?

Mutual of Overload’s Wild Kingdom

In the brutal world of Nature’s savage pay-per-view cage match, even the cutest creatures must fight for dominance. Here, we see a ferocious “bull” duckling defending his mate from an unwelcome interloper. Again and again, the two males will butt heads until one retreats to look for aspirin.

Invaders From the Planet Electrolux!

I was trapped—cornered by hideous space beasts the likes of which I’d never seen before. Just then, I heard the ear-splitting whine of their atomic anti-matter death ray. Raising my hands in surrender, I could only pray they took prisoners.

Figaro Checks His E-mail

This is so typical! Management moved the presentation up a week, and of course they waited until the last minute to tell me. Guess I’d better hop to it!

I’m going to need you to go ahead and come in on Bunday, Toms Bauģis. More Figaro

Welcome back to everybody’s favorite game show! Last time, just over 6,000 votes and a little over 50% of you guessed correctly, a grey langur. Nice work, viewers! Let’s see how you do this week.

Tic Toc. Tic Toc. BUZZZZZZ! Time’s up.

Let’s get a hint from this week’s special guest: “I like to be awake in the night. It’s such a fun time to hunt! I like to eat meat and don’t really care about anything else. I’m an important animal to some groups of native peoples. I am a great dancer and I love to play all night.”

Have you got it? Scroll down for the answer!

If you guessed a. a ferret, then you were correct! Thank you so much for playing WHAT! IS! THAT? Let’s thank our sponsor, Kimberly T. at the US Fish and Wildlife Service, for their excellent work in increasing wild populations of black footed ferrets.

April Fool!

The Huffington Post has steered us to many of the cute videos you’ve squeed to on C.O., and we’ve wanted to thank them in the worst way — and we think you’ll agree, that spoof page was it. Seriously, we can’t get e-nuff of April Fool’s Day, and hope you enjoyed this year’s prank. Thanks to Meg, Pyrit and Crazy Pants for adding jokes and pics, and Arianna Huffington for not suing. Until next year…

Hungry Happy Harry Hippo Holds Handsome Honker Hilariously

Hard to believe anyone would reject this cuddly blorper, but that’s just what Harry the Pygmy Hippo’s mother did, so keepers at a wildlife sanctuary in South Africa raised him by hand ’round the clock. Looks like he has an effective way of telling you when it’s time for a feeding, too.
