Freshly-borned Capuchin is a skosh grumpy

This one-day-old baby Capuchin monkeh is all:

"It is ENTIRELY too bright out here! Turn out the lights! Get me a sleep mask, SOMETHING! OMG PEOPLE!"

Work That Mistletoe, Sister!

All right, ladies!  The Yuletide season is upon us, and that means plenty of holiday parties with cute guys, dark hallways — and lots and lots of mistletoe!  Keep your lips lively this Christmas with these time-honored mistle-tips:

  • Be casual.  Don’t stand directly under the mistletoe; that looks desperate.  Stand just enough to one side so that you look like you just happen to be there.
  • Adopt a mysterious, far-away gaze, as if you were standing alone on a moonlit shore, yearning for your lover on the far horizon.
  • Purse your lips ever so slightly — not too much to be obvious, but enough to encourage him to make that first move.

CORRECT TECHNIQUE:

Take me now, and we will fly as one to a realm of bliss and enchantment.

INCORRECT TECHNIQUE:

HHHHEEEEEYYY, SUGAR BUNS -- WANNA SUCK FACE?

Thanks to the oh-so-kissable Ash for the instructional photos.

OMG

NO WAY.

We got the same two-toned haircut.

As if we didn’t love Google enough already, it recently teamed up with Life Magazine to provide millions of historic photographs online, including plenty of vintage Qte. Here’s a taste:

Chimp and/or kitten: 'Can I keep her, Mom?'

Being adorable just plain tuckers me out.

I am the Master, and he is the Blaster!

Dispute the Cute™

In this episode of "Dispute the Cute" we take a look at the newly rediscovered tiny primate; the Pygmy Tarsier.
Let’s break it down:

Top 3 Pros
Suction-cup hands
Miniscule earses
Overall pocket-pet size

Top 3 Cons

We’re talking some seriously bulbous eye action
alien-esque eye-to-schnozzle ratio
Appears to be nocturnal which means he could bite your nose clean off after dark

Be the Banana

Relax, young apprentice.  Clear your mind of worldly cares.  Listen to the soothing wind chimes as you earth the energy within your body and become one with the environment around you.  Concentrate on the banana.  Feel your life energy reach out to it, lifting it off the ground … yesssss, that’s it … goooood …

Yeah, well, if we don't cover peeling in our next lesson, I want a refund.

I couldn’t make this up if I tried, People.

Coxcu

Yay!

Best. Babysitter. EVAR.

When hurricane Hannah separated two ultra-prosh white tigers from their mother, Anjana came to the ResQte.  Anjana, a chimp at TIGERSin South Carolina, became surrogate mom and playmate to the cubs, even helping with bottle feeding, according to The Sun (and don’t miss the slideshow).  But here’s the truly amazing part:  Anjana does this all the time, having raised leopard and lion cubs.
