If He Can Sink This, He’ll Be Two Shots Off The Lead….

..with only three holes to go. No question the Iguana has had an up and down third round here at the Puerto Rico Open…but if he can hole this putt he’ll be right back in contention. (Hush over the crowd.) And here we go…….

Hope You Had a Happy, Heavenly, 4th Birthday, Gary.

This is the incredible, Gary the capybara, who lived large and in charge with his devoted hoomins and many furry friends in Texas.

2010_05_02_001_sCaplinGPHoedown
His hoomins made a big deal over big ol’ Gary but they didn’t make a big deal about his big underlying health issues, quietly tending to his medical needs and taking him to specialists many miles away to care for him. And Gary was doing really well, and lived longer than they thought he might, nearly almost making it to his 4th birthday, yesterday, March 10.

Gary became their heart and soul and now, he lives on in their heart and soul, and in ours too.

Full memorial to Gary on Capybara Madness. Hold on to your heart, it is quite a story.

Would you say this itsy bitsy bumblebee bat is also the smallest mammal in the world? Then you would be correct!

Yes, that’s right, “bumblebee bat”. See for yourself!

You have to hear how Liz affectionately describes Zella, whose name means, “dark, mischievous and mysterious”. And she’s very mischievous, all the time!

“Just saw this on Facebook, OMG, I can´t take it. The expression. I just melted away there…. ” -Barbarella aka The Mad Cat Lady .
This is the text that went with it: Who else would melt into a puddle if a clouded leopard looked at them like this? Ganda is 8 months old, and in this picture she’s cuddling up with her trainer at the San Diego Zoo. Photo by Deric Wagner.

Due to items carelessly left behind by interstellar researchers, the highly impressionable Craycray people of the planet Oopsidas-E developed a cult that worshipped office supplies.

We Pick Eddie the Otter to Win!

Don’t look now but March Madness is starting early! OK, suffice it to say, I don’t even know what March Madness is except it has a basketball and a hoop. Does it involve otters? Because Eddie the Otter is a Hoophead!

“He can swim with the ball, take aim and even do slam dunks – and rarely misses a shot.”

To top it all off, Eddie the otter is 16 years old! That is the Golden Age for otters. Ever since being rescued off the California coast as an abandoned pup, Eddie has been taken care of at the The Oregon Zoo. Training Eddie to play basketball is more than fun, it is helping Eddie exercise away the otter-itis in his otter elbows.

Eddie’s starting a March Madness office “pool”. You in?

A kangaroo’s dream come true!!!

In the 1950s, Mr. George Nissen, inventor of the trampoline, jumped on a trampoline with a kangaroo in Central Park, New York.

300h (1)
As a publicity stunt to introduce the trampoline, Nissen hired a kangaroo for a photoshoot in Central Park, New York. The stunt was a success. He started bouncing at one end of the trampoline to get the kangaroo bouncing at the other. Then Nissen timed his jumps so he and the kangaroo would be in mid-air together for the photos.
