Meet The Dibblers

Before I saw this on ZooBorns, I thought that perhaps “Quokka” was the funniest animal name. But that was before..

The Dibbler.

Or, in the case of this first photo, a Stack O’ Dibblers. ZB says The Dibbler is “an endangered carnivorous marsupial.”

The Perth Zoo bred some Dibblers and then “released them to a fenced area at Whiteman Park, giving them a chance to establish in the absence of foxes and cats, which have likely contributed to their decline in the wild.”

Hi Mr. Nudibranch (The Sequel)

tumblr_ne48hsOlw61r31v2no1_1280Harken back to March of 2013- we introduced you to Mr. Nudibranch! Now, in December of 2014- thanks to Carly of The Featured Creature, we’ve got Mr. Nudibranch (The Sequel.) She says this is actually a “Leaf Sheep Nudibranch.” Well, of course I knew that. Learn more right here. The above photo is by Lynn Wu.

Heeere I Come to Make a Salaaaaad!

By day, mild-mannered Hugh Manatee glides unnoticed among the krill, sturgeon, and trout going about their business in Aquaburg. But whenever sea life is threatened by injustice, whenever a shrimp cries out in terror, whenever bacon and tomato feel lonely and incomplete, Hugh Manatee becomes… The Lettuce Avenger!

Yeah Yeah Yeah PANGOLIN BEBEH!

Don’t know what’s more outrageous about this video. The teeny bebeh peepers that aren’t open yet, the little grabby hands, or the needle nose with EXTEND-A-TONGUE FLEXIBLE FLEEKING ACTION®.

I want one. My birthday was yesterday, and I didn’t get one.

The Squid gets the nod heah.

What the… I just don’t… I mean… I can’t even begin to… (thud)
