Well, It Has To Be A Squnk

(Squirrel + Skunk = Squnk. Isn’t that the right spelling? Who knows, we’re makin’ this stuff up as we go.)

Ever seen anyone like thees? This little girl/guy was spotted in San Jose CA., and she’s/he’s called a “Piebald” sqwerl. Ah, let’s trot out The Big W for that one.

A Piebald or Pied Animal is one that has a spotting pattern of large unpigmented, usually white, areas of hair, feathers, or scales and normally pigmented patches, generally black. The colour of the animal’s skin underneath its coat is also pigmented under the dark patches and unpigmented under the white patches. Animals with this pattern may include horses, dogs, birds, cats, pigs, and cattle, as well as snakes such as the ball python. [+ SQUIRRELS. -Ed.]

A Caterpillar That Looks Like…Hello Kitty?

[THIS IS A CUTE OVERLOAD MAXIMUM REDONK ALERT! REPEAT: THIS IS A CUTE OVERLOAD MAXIMUM REDONK ALERT!]

This one was spotted on DesignTaxi.com and The Featured Creature, then tracked to a few sites with languages that Ihavenoideawhattheyaresaying. This will eventually become a Chinese Bush Brown butterfly.

(My wife says there’s also a Grumpy Cat vibe here, and I think she’s right.)

Poll: Cute Or Ugly?

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society* has decided that this creature, the aptly-named “Blobfish,” is the Ugliest Creature In The World.

(*Editorial Disclaimer: I happen to think there is NO such thing as an Ugly Animuhl- they are all beautiful in their own way. Even….spiders.)

What do YOU think? Cute…or Ugly?

Ever heard of an Olinguito? Neither has anyone else! NBC News Science says: “The Olinguito, described as a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear, is the first new carnivorous mammal identified in the Western Hemisphere in 35 years, and it’s considered one of the cutest scientific finds in recent memory.” More from the guys who discovered this little knucklehead right heah!
