Humans will never be as funny as animals are... which is a good thing?

Since our last post in this category almost 2 months ago (time certainly goes by quickly), the various ugly/funny/cute/hungry etc. animal faces have accumulated enough to make a good new post. I dare you to find more silly, more unforgettable bunch... and if you liked them - go support your local zoo, the animals will thank you for it.

Some photos were taken by submitters, some hunted down from the web or through emails, without definite attribution info. For such pictures we ask the viewers to let us know who the original photographers are, so that we could include this info.

We traditionally start with the Cute Section:

These are baby red pandas, born recently in the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The pandas are doing well and just passed the 1 month mark and are currently in the process of being named.

Some elephants are very good at escape (see more info here):




Just like an elephant in the last picture, some BEARS are up to mischief, too:

MYSTERY ANIMAL:

Is it a bird or a moth?

UPDATE

Yes, it's a moth. A "Hummingbird Hawk Moth" - Macroglossum stellatarum (see here), very hard to catch on camera.



Here is a link to another short video, thanks Jack Callan.

See you all in the next part 7! Send us your cool animal images.

The bird / insect animal is a Hummingbird Hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum). A colibri (hummingbird) looks quite different - and certainly has no antennae. ;)

the one with the elephant falling out of the monorail is a fake, though. it happened, but nobody took a picture of it.

That last one is a moth, family Sphingidae. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawk_moth)

Love your site!

Could you be so kind to call them a Chimpanzee and a Gorilla instead of "monkeys"? Although they are related, therre IS a difference between Monkeys and Apes. Thank you!

Um, the first photo in your two of hippos is actually a rhinoceros. Not sure what type though. :)
