The proud first-time Mama is named Sorrel. What will the cubs’ names beeee?! (singsong)

Sorrel is being the best new Mama ever, but we think all red panda Mamas should check out How to pick up a baby Red Panda in 5 easy steps!

The cubs are still in seclusion until this fall. But zoo visitors can view Sorrel and her cubs on a video monitor.

Gorgeous ruby red tropical blooms that scream for attention? Oh please. Wally is the headline act.

Even a fluffy black Eminence on a neon tapestry is getting upstaged by Wally!

It’s OK, all you hot pink and fuchsia flowers, ain’t no shame in being outdone by Wally.

“We adopted Wally, the Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot, when he was 23 years old and had had two previous owners.  He will live well into his sixties and I have promised him a forever home. He has settled into our family of 2 dogs, 2 cats, a cockatiel, a tortoise and a Bearded Dragon. I love to place Wally in colorful settings around the back yard and take his photo.” -LuvFurArt.com artist, Kris B.

What The Fish?

We weren’t sure at first but, no this is not an oriental silk fish painting, nor the contents of a really groovy petri dish experiment.

These are Sailfin Sculpins! They’re cute! And they are on exhibit now at the Kelp Forest touch pool at the always awesome Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Happiest little bottom dwellers ever. (shifty-eyes)

Quoting MSN News: “This incredible creature, believed to be a typical house gecko common in the Philippines, is one of the world’s smallest reptiles. The lizard was captured by teen photographer Corin Lenisco, who decided to keep it as a pet.”

“Here’s Toto again (named after the movie, not the band ;-),) with her best friends, Girly Girl (weenie dog) and Shelby (schnauzer.) They love having sleepovers where they can shred toys, eat wet food (their favorite,) and bark at the pit bull pups (through the fence) next door.” -Jessica H.

A Crow’s Tail

Cuteporter Annie K. found this on The Corvid Blog. The blog says their rather sneaky behavior of creeping up and giving their prey’s tail a good yank is just part of who they are…the little finks. Are you the guys who wake me up in my backyard every morning?
