Tiny Dormouse Snores

The fine folks over at Boing Boing have reminded moi that the ever-snoozing and ever-prosh dormouse is hibernatin’ and therefore snoring up a storm these days. Will you please check out this redonk snoring action:

Did You Know™ that the dormouse sleep three quarters of the year in a nest? (That’s insta-dorabuhls). They weigh 15 to 30 grams, and they’re English, so you know when they talk, it’s absolutely charming.

First still image by Terry Whitaker, Dormice photographer extraordinaire. Second photo from Smart Images UK.

Tock to the Butts

So this is the ferrets idea of hangin’ out together.

“These are two of my four ferrets, Jack and Leo, enjoying, well ummm, drinking from their new indoor pool!!!” -Kate S.

Ford Trux: Built Polar Bear Tuff

Just ask Steve Kazlowski, the photographer who took these photos waaaay up in the Alaskan wilderness, and has been doing so for 15 years. He’ll tell ya- his truck can take it. (He’s in the photos, too- did he have a camera on a tripod? Or an assistant?) And remember the old joke- whadya give a huge polar bear to eat? Anything he wants!











Hats off to Mail Online, natch.

Oh Wow, You Shouldn’t Have.

Really, an expensive, upmarket twist tie made by Gucci, for me? Gads. (Bats it under the ‘fridge in 3, 2, 1…)

“Little Chief is at it again. I asked Chief to keep an eye on this bug. He didn’t let me down.” -Photo by: Joshy
