And Mom says, “Honey, I don’t care what they do in the movies, you can’t have a tattoo!”
“This is Larkyn demonstrating the newest trend for fashion-forward nature-gals! A nose lizard!” -Joy

Caterpillar Penguins Await You!

Yes, Peeps. Step right up and see an anatomical wonder. Here, in this very post, a magical marvelous surprise that will entrance and intrigue and delight you beyond measure! It’s a lepidoptera oddity! It’s the caterpillar that wears peculiar perpendicular penguin pajamas!

“Look closely! It’s a caterpillar that looks like it has little penguins on his back! Found this pic while browsing reddit.” -Edward D.

Last Friday, we had a Grasshopper Haiku and forgot to include this little maniac. Our apologies.



“Check out this little fellow sitting on my hand and arm. I found him on the neighbor’s swing set when my daughter was there playing. After I held him for a moment I released him to continue his life on the dogwood tree.” -Cuteporter Andrea D., who used a Nikon D3000 for these super shots.

Hot. Pink. Slugs.

Only in Australia. Of course! Have a look and have a listen:

Snailio Makes Itself Perfectly Clear

I don’t mean to be a pane but it’s not easy being transparent.

And telling the kids to go play baseball somewhere else.

It’s clear I’ll just have to see through another day.

Oh, Bummer, Man.

The #1 reason hippies don’t go camping nowadays is the fear of going into the woods and finding an 18′ tall hermit crab lurking beside their campsite.

Sender-Inner Abi M. shares, “In a break from the normal underwater photograph, Jason Isley has added miniature figurines to create cute scenes with underwater critters.” Very cool! Like wow!
