The Eternal Struggle of Camel Versus Bucket

In the remote plains of Wazoolooland, we come upon an all-too-familiar scene:  A fierce camel locked in mortal combat with the small but wily plastic bucket.

For the bucket, its only chance is to raise its defenses and hope to tire his adversary …

GOOOOOOAAAL

Alas, even the bucket’s tough protective shell is no match for the camel’s ruthless onslaught …

… and with one final bite, the struggle is over.

CHOMP!!

Victorious, the mighty camel cries out his call of triumph.

THIS...IS...SPARTAAAAAAA!

We’ll be back with more of "Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom" after these messages.

Yes, sir, Gelosia … that’s your "Baby." ( More photos here )

Do You Mind?!

"We were right in the middle of … um … playing leapfrog!  Um, wait … no, I was giving her a back massage!  Yeah, that’s the ticket … ahmm, would you believe we’re practicing for the football team?  Hup one, hup two!"

HI, MOM!

Scandalous, Tami S.

Let the necking…begin!

"Charles—it was love at first sight when I saw your beautiful, long neck…"

"Nadine—you’re the one with the vertebra that WON’T QUIT"

Lil’ Hoser

Check out this tiny hoser over at the Oregon zoo. According to Sender-Inner Lauren I., they’re naming the little guy today! We’ll be sure to check back. I’d like to suggest: “José”.

Unless it’s a girl, then maybe “Phannie” or something?!

Make sure that’s organic, mmmkay?

For a red panda I don’t ask for a lot. Really.

I must have organic pears, apples and grapes.

I insist on hand-feeding [Beady-eye intense look]

I also need my two-toned look kept fierce (Clairol Hydrience Hibiscus Dark Red Hair Color # 32), at LEAST once a month

Thaaaaanks.

And let me know when the hot tub is ready. [Scampers back up a tree]

Awesome red panda shots, Jessica R.:D Check out all her shots here. This was all made possible by the Wellington Zoo.

At the Hide-and-Seek Training Academy

Well, the 2008 Olympics may be a memory, but the hopefuls for 2012 are already getting a head start in the rigorous training for this demanding and often time-consuming event:

...three thousand, six hundred and twenty-SEVEN, three thousand, six hundred and twenty-EIGHT...

And here’s Diego El Kabonngg of Portugal, demonstrating the advanced eye-covering technique that swept him to the silver in 2000:

... five million, seven hundred thousand, two hundred and NINE, ...

Ready or not, here we come, Paula E! (top photo)

YOU ARE KIDDING ME

Gasp!

[Leaves fall out of mouf]

NO WAY she is dating that alpaca in paddock two. NO WAY.

We think paddock 2 is chock full of hotties too, Marie N.

Bunz and Frenchie’s Daring Caper

"All right, Frenchie — the coast is clear.  Time to make our move."

Some Lalo Schifrin music would be nice here.

"The old dame keeps the jewels in the penthouse apartment.  All you gotta do is (whisper, whisper)"

Huzza guzza whuzza fluzza...

"Right, boss — here I go!"

BOIINNNGGGG!

"Oh, and I forgot to tell you — the jewels are in a lead-lined safe with a quintuple-combination lock guarded by a laser-targeted motion sensor, fourteen armed guards, three rottweilers, and a delusional attack lizard.  So good luck!"

I'm behind you all the way, pal!

We lose more frogs that way, Janine F.

Jurassic Dork

Skillfully shrouded within the dense prehistoric jungle, the deadly velociraptor stalks his prey.  A soulless killing machine, he is as cunning as he is ruthless.  Patiently he waits as his unsuspecting quarry draws closer, and then, without warning … HE STRIKES!

Give it up, pal, you are SOOO dinner!

We all need our dreams, Karen G.

what Rule #14  is, (how dare you forget it!)
