Captain Bat Sparrow

And now for something completely batty: Johnny Depp, as Captain Jack Sparrow, feeding a bat. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, on a break from filming in Australia, visited the Australian Bat Clinic to meet the premature-born flying fox he adopted last May.

So Take The Photo, Willya???

“(STILL) Need….More…Quolls”

We needed more Quolls back on April 17th. Nothing’s changed—we still need ’em.

Quolls are marsupials, related to the Taz Devil.

The Boing Boing story says few of these live in the wild anymore, and they’re fierce predators. So, bottom line- Cute. But be careful if you find yourself in the Outback with one.

Hey There, Fellow Bunnies!

So You Wanna Join the Spacing Guild, Eh?

Ya got moxie, kid — I like that. Yep, start ’em early, that’s what I say. It’s a great career if you can stick it out. You’re gonna want to start hitting the spice now, of course, and enroll in space-folding lessons…

Gorilla Your Dreams

Hello, ladies. It is I, Shabani. It is said that Shabani is handsome. Very handsome. Women come to see Shabani at the zoo where Shabani lives. The piercing, thoughtful gaze of Shabani flutters their hearts. Or rustles their jimmies. One of those. Shabani is not sure.

But the women know Shabani is not just handsome. Shabani is kind. Shabani cares for his children. Shabani loves children. They are delicious.

Shabani is a 18 year old male gorilla at Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Garden. The "handsome" gorilla is super popular with young ladies and families. Zoo officials tell CNN that he got the stardom after the netizens started to tweeting and FBing about his handsome photo used for its spring festival posters in April.

Alas, the women, they cannot know Shabani’s heart. Shabani is a riddle, wrapped in an enigma, stuffed into a banana only Shabani can peel. Shabani is distant. Lonely. Shabani can only refer to himself in the third person. That is how lonely he is.

If You See the Cabana Boy, I’d Like an Ouzo

Meet Argyro, a Mediterranean monk seal who’s made herself right at home on the beach at Samos Island in Greece. According to Reddit and this article (which is Greek to us), Argyro crawled up one day and flopped into a beach chair, which has now been, ahem, sealed off just for her use.
