Built-in, ready to go

Some peeps are reeeeally lucky—they’re born with snorgle action built-in. Tapirs and Aardvaaaarks have it MADE. They barely breathe in, and it’s INSTA-SNORG. Look at this lil’ guy!

Ferret Pretzel Central!

Someone is trying to nap and someone is outta there! It’s Ferret Pretzel Central, with your hosts Lupin (LOO-PIN) and Jigen (GEE-JIN). Obvy, Lupin is going to roll in salt to complete his ferret pretzel duties.


You’re right, Trish C., not enough ferrets on the site.

“Snorgle” is my middle name

This, People, is a tapir, a sweet lil’ pig-like guy that’s born with stripes and a nose meant for snorgling. He’s ready to go!


Ladies and gentlemen, start your snorgles.


Thank you, Anthony, L.

Teeny tiny torte

Teeny Tiny Tortie McTortlesons here is an Egyptian Tortoise born at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. He’s one of the tiniest, most endageredest tortoises in the world! He also has NINE siblings. Imagine THAT dinner table.


Pass the mashed potatoes, Adam G.!


…Or is it a Wall-ette? [wallaby?] Methinks it matters not! It’s prosh regardless!




Hmm, gynormous feets and curled up paws. <singsong> Someone’s following rule 10 AND Rule 20! Thanks for sending in, Mila R.!

“Flo, we’re gonna need a smaller bottle.”

Mr. raccoon-pants here might need an eye-dropper for a while. TEENY not-ringed-yet TAIL ALERT!


Gracias, ShizGirl :)

Extremely alert reader Nancy M. just sent this photo in of her cat "Dr. Moritz van Taco, MD" checking out the raccoon bébé post. Hee!

Three evil otters

Obviously, these Dudes are making very evil plans. Using every tool in their arsenal, their teeny ears and plump cheek puff, they will soon be running SeaWorld Park. Better ply them with delicious fishes early on—it’s best for your own survival.


Moist, webbed thanks to the Sea World.

Grubbie Mc Grubbersons

[Baby elephant theme song]

Alas, it’s another day in the life of Grubbie McGrubbersons, the soon-to-be-Hawk-moth grub. He’s all: "mmmmmmm, delicious green stems!" [touches stem with ‘paw’]


Who knew grubs had BEF? Delectable, Stephanie S.!

Pocket McPockersons

Lil’ Fox Junior here was born at Mississippi State University, at their Wildlife Center. Why is it that it seems (not sure) all baby mammals start with blue eyes—then the blue eyes may or may not change color? Is this true?

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!"

Snorting, watery props to Wayne H. ;)
