You Otter Be In Pictures

And now here’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Modern Otter magazine’s annual swimsuit edition.  This year, legendary Portuguese photographer Salão do Invernos leads his models and crew to the exotic beaches of Yorkeys Knob, Australia.

Ahhh, ees perfect spot!
oh dear, originally uploaded by flurokitty.

Here we get a rare glimpse of Salão’s unusual "over the shoulder" shooting technique.

You are no doubt amazed by my raw talent, yes?

In a tense moment, creative differences erupt between the photographer and crew.

I am the photographer!  I OUTRANK YOU!

Later, Salão suffers another setback when he discovers he forgot to put batteries in the camera.

Well, so much for my Pulitzer!

Answer: A Drunken Safari

Question: What do you get when you take African animals, delicious fruits, and good ole fermentation?

Whoever did the sound effects for this movie is a GEEEEENNNIUS! [singsong] Jaimie R., hic!

This might also be a good time to remind you of another redonk Safari over in Kenya (thanks Megan D.)

Sunday Snork

According to Sender-Inner Cammie C., all the other giraffes at the zoo were happily snorfing down pellets while this gal snorked a pole.

Mmmm, salty McTimberssons! Snork snork snork.

Giraffe leeps are so great—check out the bendy-back action.

SNORK-HANCE!

Snorked

Cammie C., and everyone out there, have you snorked today?

With a little nom

with a little nom, we can lay it down

Can’t you feel this website exploding? [Sing in Sir Paul McCartney voice]

How to have a lazy Sunday in 8 easy steps

STEP 1:  Be a wolverine.
Wolverine_1

STEP 2:  Know that you are a badass predator.  Choose to chill.
Wolverine_2

STEP 3:  Be a leopard.
Amur_up

STEP 4:  You are the elitest of the elite.  You are the eyeblink of death.  You are death from above.  You come from Mongol-flocking Siberia.  Let the camera-clutching tourists squeal and flail and gibber.  They are tender and delicious.  You can afford to chill.

STEP 5:  Be a tiger.
Tiger1

STEP 6: <snort>
STEP 6a: Leopards.  Afraid of water.  Honestly.  Come, I will show you the Way of Chill.
STEP 6a1: Come closer.
Tiger2

STEP 7:  Be a bear.  Better be two bears, in fact.  Be TWO RIGGA-DAM’ GRIZZLY BEARS, pilgrim!
Grizzlies

STEP 8:  You know the drill.
frisky_Grizzlies

Thanks to the Minnesota Zoo and their new Minnesota Trail and Grizzly Coast exhibits!  They’ve really been working on the place; even the run-through fountains in the play area are back.  Sadly, they didn’t have any grizzly cubs for us to take pictures of, which was too bad because that would’ve been just about THE ULTIMATE Cute Overload post.  They’re working on it, though.

THIS JUST IN: Tiny Velvety Platypi

Check these morsels out. They’ve got a combination of velvety Sharpei rolls, evil webbed otter paws, and perfectly machined drilled nostril holes.

Snork-snork [double nostril-hole sniffing sound]

Let’s dip them in chocolate and call it the "Pudgy ‘n’ Velvety" bar, then smoosh it in our faces, OK Sasha F.?

Blood-Thirsty Hounds Appreciate Cuteness Too

UK’s Mail Online is reporting a pack of blood-thirsty hounds decided to spare the life of Mr. FawnPants here. In fact, the fawn, known as "Bam Bam" trots along happily with the 60-dog pack and huntsman on their daily walk.

The fawn fits in perfectly as he is the same size as the hounds, and seems to enjoy hanging out with the pack, much to the complete surprise of onlookers!

Apparently, Bam Bam’s Momma abandonned him right near the huntsman’s house, most likely scared off by the dogs. Since then, Bam Bam has received his daily milk and seems quite content.

Bam Bam will be rehomed in a deer sanctuary next year. More pics and more on this story here.

Ralph Makes a Break for It

9:47 PM: 

"Ah HAH!  The others are sleeping — now is my perfect opportunity to scale these walls to FREEDOM!"

11:19 PM: 

"YES!  Almost halfway to the top now, and then it’s goodbye to this provincial life — and hello to adventure!"

2:31 AM: 

"This box is no place for a wayfaring vagabond such as I!  Just a few inches more, and the open road awaits!"

Friday: 

"The casinos of Monte Carlo! (ehn!) The vibrant culture of London and New York! (ungh!) The pristine sands of Cabo San Lucas!"

2012: 'Ah, I can taste the mojitos now...'
