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"


And then they stared at their lake reflections fer hours, Jennifer B.

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



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, ...

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!"


"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.

Rule 14 Alert and the Frog Boss

Mr. Slippery just showed up to remind you to finish your T.P.S reports. Well are they done yet? Are they? He’s trying to run a business here!


Yes Mr. Slippery, they’ll be on your desk tomorrow morning by 8AM! [Salutes awkwardly]. Here’s a reminder of

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

Ssssh, I gotta tell you…

Shhhhhhh! Come closer!

[Looks around to see if anyone is listening, claws grip tightly to branch]

I must… tell you something! Ssssshhhh!

Look into my beady eyes!




complete me!


Ahn, thanks, Lil’ KoalaPants!

Hey, Baby—how YOU Dune?

Know then, that is is the year 10191. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange.  The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice softens hands while you do dishes.  The spice exists on only one desolate, dry planet in the entire universe, guarded by the fearsome giant sand-llamas.
