Double take

Hippopup_1At first glance, it’s really hard to see the lil’ Hippo pup. Then you’re all: "Aie!!! Holy Mother to Baby Nostril Ratio!1!"

Rule of Cuteness #21: Eye Capsules

OK, People, give this a chance here. Eye "capsules", as seen on the baby Wombat on the bottom photo, are cute.

Sure, this wombat could rip your heart out with his nails faster than you could say ‘shrimp on the—" but his eye capsules are still cute.

Camelion

Steve: Yeah? my perch is way scarier—check it—no grips! And our two-pronged hands aren’t helpin’! At least I can show the camera my sweeeeet hiney!

Tortu_4I have received one billion trillion emails on the following topic, so it’s finally time to post it. Yes, you’ve all read it, bit GUESS WHAT? you’re going to READ IT AGAIN.

I submit to you, thanks to a million billion Cute O readers, the True Story of a Remarkable Friendship. The story of Owen and Mzee, a baby hippo and turtle who befriended each other in Kenya. It’s an uplifting story [music starting] of a tsunami that hit back in 2004, [wildlife sounds] where these two homeless ani-pals were moved to Hallard Park, an animal sanctuary in Kenya. [Macaws cawwing]
Baroo
"Owen", aka "The Baby Hipster" was one of the animals who moved in. It was here he met "Mzee", a 130 year-old tortoise. [Three’s Company Music] The two have been inseparable ever since! The hijiinx!

And now, there’s even a book about it.

Hip hip….

Owen

Hooray!

Thanks, Melanie T. and the bajillions of others who sent the story in.

Thanks Beth, for the David Bradley pic.

Rule #17: Have tiny ears

We all know that cheek puff is anerable. Duh!

But we have yet to document ear size. Obvy, the following otter is modeling ideal cute ear size, which is pretty much equivalent to a non-existant ear. So basically, less ear is better. I’m just sayin’.

CHEEK PUFF ALERT!

What’s an otter doing in a bed of straw, Amy L.? (I mean besides making evil plans)

A-ha! eyes at the level of the nose AGAIN!

See!!! what did I tell you about eyes at nose level, People!? Here it is, proven AGAIN, this time in Tokyo. See, once again, the Japanese kick our butts with Cuteness. BTW, I’d like to see him try and slurp something up.
