Larry Gets Buffaloed

“Are you gonna let that ram over there blow his own horn like he owns the place? Who does that conch-head think he is?”

“Yeah! I dare ya to challenge that petting-zoo inmate to a head-butting contest! That’ll show him!”


Father’s Day Salute To The Seahorse

Let’s all give it up for the male seahorse. He’s the only species on the planet in which the male carries the babies.

Oh yeah, AND he can get knocked up again within 24 hours of giving birf. Schweet.


Happy Father’s Day, little Dude. Plaintive was photographed by Cynner_SF.

Oh, So U Want A Desert Rain Frog Ring Tone, Eh?

[This one is an Encore Presentaysh from early 2013. However, Cuteporter Amanda V. wrote in and insisted we do the right thing and run it again. And so we shall. Guaranteed to start the work week off on the right note. -Ed.]

“I have been in love with Mr. Blorpy the Cape Rain Frog since you guys posted him back in 2009, but I had NO IDEA that there were other flavors of Rain Frogs until yesterday when a friend sent me this video of a DESERT Rain Frog and my head positively exploded. The Blorp and Squee are unbounded. Do what is right and share this with the world.”

You got it!

As a new bonus, we’ve also included a handy ringtone for your phone. Click it to preview, or right click on this link to save (or control-click for Mac).

(Oh, you’d like a FIVE MINUTE LOOP of this? Sure, sure.)

Subj: Issues with your work performance

It has come to our attention that your output is over 50 percent below average for your shift, and that since you joined us, there has been a dramatic increase in product loss. This last may be attributed to the fact that you are a sea lion, something you failed to disclose during your interview. While we at Forbush Fish Market would normally embrace such diversity, this deception coupled with the aforementioned performance issues leave us no choice but to terminate your employment.


You Are Now Under a Bebeh Pygmy Hippo’s Power

The eyes say it all. You wish to be her slave. You may apply through her agent, diary keeper, personal shopper and towel boy.

Strictly only the best for her will do, including daily fresh cut flowers, personal masseur, direct dial access to Emeril Lagasse and all blue M&Ms will be removed from her candy bowl.

Her management will take no responsibility for diva tantrums.

THIS JUST IN: Stack O’ Flapjacks: The Video!

Last month, we showed you this Cute Little Dude, but there wasn’t any video.


Happy to say that is NOT a problem now. Monterey Bay Aquarium just released this moments ago.

P.S. The video says “You may know it better as the inspiration for the animated character Pearl in “Finding Nemo.”

Monday Mornings

Oh yeah the first workday of the week is totally the same for the animuhls.

They know exactly what it’s like.

Except, um, it isn’t work really, it is more like sleep.

And it is hard sleep! And…well, otherwise pretty much the same as work.


Pretty sure. Not totally sure.

‘Cause Mondays are the same for them. Same as every other day.

Your CO Cute Word of the Day

Who woulda thunk it? Bebeh porcupines are actually called Porcupettes. Sounds like a Meg worrrd (singsong). The things you learn on CO. File this one under Lingo You Need To Know.

What’s So Great about Being a Zonkey?

Besides being redonk? The best thing about being half donkey and half zebra is, you get to be your own side-kick!

“Saw this extremely rare zonkey baby on the news this morning!” -Holly H. via YouTube.
