Favorite Australian animals 1

Today we’ll have some Australian animal favorites in honor of Steve Irwin. Like Mr. Rule Numero Seven here.


G’Day, Aliza D.

Everyone loved the Crocodile Hunter

It’s very sad to report that conservationist Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin was killed during a filming expedition in the Great Barrier Reef today. Whenever I saw Steve on T.V., his passion was stunning and admirable—I’m so sorry to hear he’s gone. As you can see, everyone loved the Croc Hunter…his adventures are legendary. As soon as there is a live link to "The Crikey Fund", I’ll link it.






"That was close!"


That was quite an adventure, Karen K. [Who sent these photos back in March!]

Tiiiiny Geckage!

[Sing title in your best Don Ho voice] Katie M. saw this Bebeh Gecks in Maui, Hawaii. Where’s his tiny grass skirt?


Oh we’re going… to the Hooky-Lau (sp?) Mahalo, Katie M.

Rule #27: Shifty Eyes are cute

You don’t have to be furry to be cute. Case in point, Sir Shifts-a-lot here, with this completely flexible eyeballage and ability to balance on BLADES O’ GRASS.

Hells to the yes, teeny tailio!


Brillo submishe, Jenny S. One of my favorites.

Fuzzy bee-tocks

Can you just SEE this bee animated? He’s got a super-heavy back end, and he droops and floats, droops and floats and the he finally lands on the flower, and he’s all; "Do my ‘tocks look big?"

And the fact they both take time out for groomin’:


Once again, Tanja Askani RULEZ.

Bambi and Thumpare

Fabuloso photographer Tanja Askani strikes again with her ‘Bambi and Thumper’ series. Two canoodling wildlife sweethearts, snorgling away.

Check out Teh Thumpster, he’s all: "Whaaa? What ees thees tenative snorgling?" and Bambi’s all "Eeeear-licious…"


Later, in Narnia, they rendez-vous AGAIN!


[Sounds of Springtime music] la la la la la la, and they’re back at it!Image007_4 

Way to submit ‘em, Cheryl E.! ;)

I daresay! What do you mean tea’s not ready?

[outrageous English accent] Why, why—I ordered it hours ago! Where the devil is it? I daresay you simply cannot get good help these days. Haruppphmph, pish posh and all that.


Ted C’s Galapagos seal is the most regal, elegant little Dude.


Look, sometimes, a Pup and his Ferret just wanna cuddle. Is that SO WRONG!?


No. the answer is no, Becca F.

Lil’ Winkie

Karen A writes:

"Last night I walked to the bathroom, turned on the light (thank GOD i turned on the light) rounded the corner and saw…well, I didn’t know what it was. I saw an ear and gray/black fur and that’s as far as I could go. I called linda saying something like "um…lINDA! there is SOMETHING as big as a SMALL rabbit in our toilet. YES! I’M SERIOUS! hurry up, I’m gonna cry." It ended up being a opossum. When Linda got him out he was all shivery and baby and then i called him lil’ winkie. We put him in a carrier with towels and left him outside hoping that he’d make it until the morning. It’s funny how he went from disgusting, horrid creature to pitiful, little baby. He is fine today, Linda’s going to take him to the Prairie Park Nature Center."


She continues: "The worst part of the whole experience is the what if’s that keeprunning through my head. What if I didn’t turn on the light? I hardlyever turn on the light at night to pee. What if I went to pee and itbrushed against my butt? Or if i was wiping and it touched my hand?Karen think’s that I would have thought I had a opossum baby, which ispossible. Then we would have to name him Jesus and it would be amiracle to be investigated by the church. Seriously, and where the helldid he come from? There are no openings anywhere in the house (wechecked because i was convinced that his big, mean, momma was under thebed) so the only conclusion that we can come to is that he crawled upthe pipe. ugahhblaghhshivercreepyfreakout."


Karen A.—too funny.
