Can it be spring already?
Can it be spring already?
The US Department of Interior’s social media team is EN FUEGO. Yesterday, we got this from their Twitter account- today, Maureen (“They have so many wonderful pictures!”) P. grabbed this from their Instagram. “A Monk Seal watches a Bebeh Turtle crawl on the beach at Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.”
Today’s Groundhog Day! Earlier this morning, a bunch of guys in black top hats dragged Punxsutawney Phil outta his safe, warm tree stump. You know how it goes: if His Blorpness saw his shadow, it’s six more weeks of winter. Otherwise, it’s an early spring. The result? Hang on to your snow shovels.

AMC is showing Groundhog Day today: 10am, 12:30pm, 3:00pm and 5:30pm.
There’s a lot going on today, if you happen to be in the area of Gobbler’s Knob. (Just east of Punxsutawney.)

Check out Bebeh Beaver Hazel, doing her best Teddy Bear Nomming impression! (No sounds from Hazel, though.) And we thank the many Cuteporters who sent this in!
[Hey there! Haven’t seen you here on the beach before. You mind if I come on over for a quickie Snorgle? Hmrprh, Mmmrph, er, um, Ooomph. Whew. Need to drop a few.]

Ever wondered how a Blorpy Ham Ham can stuff all that…er, STUFF into his/her cheeks? The Beeb takes us inside…(say in a deep voice in a huge echo chamber:)

Got a different Big J this time around, People. His name is Jasper! Lisa K. reports, “Dear Cute Overload, Long time fan, first time sender-inner. The Furball in the attached is Jasper, displaying Rules Of Cuteness #17 and #19. Photos by my niece, Chloe L. Thank you!”
You will not believe what happens at the 1:23 mark- but don’t cheat, start from the beginning. (FYI, the problem is not in your set- no sound on this one.)
Anyway, this is from photographer Kristina J. “In December of 2013, I had the joy of having a juvenile elephant seal snuggle with me in the sub-Antarctic region of South Georgia Island,” she writes in her email. “This was one of the cutest and happiest experiences of a fantastic trip to the Antarctic, and I would love to share it with your fans (which I am a huge fan!)”
