    This is Bat-Llama, who was recently strutting his ass at the Indiana State Fair (somebody buy me a funnel cake). This picture leaves me with so many unanswered questions. Mostly about the kind of life his owner leads. I guarantee the craziest cat lady in the world has got no... / Continue →

    Because this is the internet and somebody had some free time on their hands, here's a video of goats performing the Game of Thrones theme. I'm not really feeling that great this morning so it was a little hard for me to watch. I made it to the first long note before I had sto... / Continue →

    This is a video of Festo's latest robotic creation, a kangaroo (previously: a bird and brain-sucking jellyfish). Why build a robotic kangaroo? That's just it -- there isn't a good reason. Not a single one. You know how kangaroos are notorious boxers? Well it's not their pu... / Continue →

    This is DeviantARTist leafeon-ex's dog cosplaying in the Umbreon costume she made her. Man, I would love for a wild one of those to appear. As long as it didn't try to bite me. If it tried to bite me I'm not sure what I'd do, but I suspect it would involve getting bitten. S... / Continue →

    This is a Caribbean Pygmy Octopus that recently hatched at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Florida. It's so teensy! If this were a Disney movie, it would think that pencil eraser is its mother. This is not a Disney movie though, this is real life. There are no ha... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    These are pictures of a river otter attacking an American alligator at the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in Florida. Apparently the otter killed and ate the gator, disproving everyone who thought otters are precious little angels that would make great pets. Those thi... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like the Grinch's homemade reindeer, a reindeer in Norway poses with its reflective painted antlers, or 'bling sticks' as they like to refer to them. Herders in Norway have recently started painting their reindeer's antlers and fur with reflectiv... / Continue →

    This is a brief video of a raccoon popping bubble wrap. Or trying to eat it. I think he's just trying to eat it. Wouldn't it be cool if bubble wrap bubbles were all filled with different scents and when you popped them you got to smell them? Because I would start manufactur... / Continue →

    These are shots of the Goleta, California home of a man who dropped $35,000 renovating the house to better suit his 18 cats. I mean, cool, but if I'm dropping $35,000 on home renovations for cats you better believe it's to build them their own apartment in the back yard. Cust... / Continue →

    This is the video of James Nolastname and his father rescuing two deer stranded in the middle of Albert Lea Lake in Minnesota. How the deer managed to get that far out in the first place is beyond me. Apparently the father/son team managed to rescue three deer that day. And,... / Continue →

    This is a video of a goldfish in a little aquarium on wheels who can steer the thing by swimming in different directions (which is captured by a webcam). It's basically exactly like Finding Nemo, provided you've never seen the movie and thought it was about a fish who owned a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a crow (a member of the Corvus genus, which includes ravens) solving a complex 8-step puzzle in order to grab himself a treat. Apparently members of the Corvus genus are particularly smart, which I already knew because of that Edgar Allen Poe poem where the ... / Continue →
