I Am… Viscacha!

On the plains and mountains of Peru, there you will find Viscacha. My cousin is the Chinchilla, but he has the ears that are stumpy, not tall and proud like Viscacha. But neither is Viscacha the bunny rabbit, for their tails are like, how you say, the puff powder, not long and curly like Viscacha.

When Viscacha is threatened, I emit a fearsome roar!

There are some who say that to sniff the fur of Viscacha produces the visions of beauty in the mind. But this is the nonsense.

My Little Pachyderm

House hippo, tiny rhino, mini pony, lap-sized giraffe; all have become super popular of late. Now, the first-ever sighted adult dwarf elephant in Sri Lanka is getting his own trendy tiny trunkster action too.

But do you recall, the most aimless reindeer of all?

So, Santa’s extra-back-up-stand-by reindeer, Sven and Ole, were very busy at their flying practice when Sven says to Ole, this is one foggy Christmas Eve! And Ole says, do you think we mist it?

Double Vision Always Seems to get the Best of You

A sudden change in your vision could be an early warning sign of a craving for jelly donuts, two monster sized chocolate bars, a box of dates, some sand dunes and a tent or two.

How did the Spider Monkey get its name?

Oh look, here’s one now. Let’s ask. So what are you, a spider or a monkey? One or the other, you can’t have it both ways!

My name is a combination of the word spider, which is Latin for AAAAIIIIEEEEE! [Psycho music], and the word Monkey, which is a made-up word that is cute to say.

Hula Skirt Monkey would have been nice. That Carl Linnaeus sure has a lot to answer for.
