Hey Neil, this is how you shoot a raccoon

Not literally shoot—I mean photograph.

Hugo award-winning snorglable author and panda feeder Neil Gaiman has been trying to get our attention for MONTHS and finally did it with his recent raccoon photo shoot.

This isn’t that shoot by the way.

Miracles of Science!

OSLO — Scientists at the Grubermann Institute for Hypnosis have announced that they have successfully hypnotized a subject into believing that he is a bowling pin. "The hard part," notes lead researcher Pyetr Van Fnyrrd, "was getting him to wobble realistically before falling over." The team hopes to apply concepts learned to its next project: Hypnotizing a family of four into thinking it is a set of steel-belted radial tires.

Oh, please be a gutterball, PLEASE be a gutterball...

Better keep him away from hedgehogs, Johanna S.

I just watched 8 hours of ferret cam to get these pics

We all know that ferrets are just kneesocks with eyes. So when this little mini endangered black-footed sock was born over at the National Zoo, of course they had to create a Ferret Cam for all of us to enjoy. I think he looks more worm-like than sock-like. You?

Can you see his little sock-face under her right paw?

2

And now, the baby face right next to his Momma’s (he doesn’t have dark markings yet)

3

Now, all noodle-like, flopping around

Kinda mini-polar-bear-ish here:

Way to un-endanger-em, Sender-Inner Tara W. and the National Zoo’s Conservation and Research Center!

This Is For Your Own Protection

Meet Tai and Pip, twin red pandas at the Edmonton Valley Zoo in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. As a safety precaution, we’re only going to show you their heads, because the rest of them have been deemed by the C.O. Public Safety Advisory Committee to be too cute for safe public consumption.

If we were to show you their soft, fuzzy, oh-so-snorglable bellies, or the delicate downy fur on their bushy, bushy tails, your brains would melt into a pool of butterscotch pudding and ooze out your ears, which would really put a crimp in your plans for the weekend. Also, brain is notoriously hard to clean out of clothing, especially synthetics. We’re only thinking of you, people.

You want the cute? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE CUTE!

Just send us the dry cleaning bill, Nicole M.

Meanwhile, at Camp Wannasnorgleya…

"Ralph?  Ralph, you awake?"

"Cut it out, you’ll wake up the counselor!"

"Hey, you wanna know why I wasn’t in wood shop today? You wanna know, huh? Do ya? Huh?"

"Lemmie alone, Shermy, I’m sleeping."

"It’s because I totally scored with Sue-Ann Glupenpooter, that’s why."

"You lie, Shermy."

"Am not! We went out behind the boat house, and she let me get to third base!"

"Oh, for your information, Shermy, Bruce from cabin 12 told me that he overheard Becky and Janelle talking about how Weird Linda told them that Sue-Ann thinks you’re a total loser spaz butthead. So shut up and go to sleep."

(pause)

"All right — second base."

"Good night, Shermy."

Yeah, we’re not buying it either, Philip K.

Rescute: A baby deer named Jet

The good folks over at the Iron Mountain Jewelry store had quite a surprise recently. On the way to work one recent morning, they found a fawn on the side of the road, it’s Momma just killed. The baby had just been borned. So, rather than leave him, they took him in and researched the finest way to bring up McFawnersons.

Which includes delectabuhl meelks:

Finally, a zoo that understands the evil power of otters

People, the Minnesota Zoo gets it. Finally a reputable establishment that understands the evil, evil powers that otters have over just about every other living creature! They simply cannot be stopped.
