Traditionally, we start with cutest ones:

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

the thing identified as a hyena is a xoloitzcuintle dog, aka the mexican hairless. they're kinda fun little monsters.

Blogger alvarhillo said...

Really funny. The second picture is Gizmo. I send you another funny elephant.

Blogger Musback said...

I think i spotted the homeless elephant on adsoftheworld before... not shure

I think that the three tigers in the water trough may be by Phil Parker (a.k.a TigerToy) -- I recall seeing it in one or more art shows at Chicago area SF cons (DucKon, Windycon or Capricon) with other photographs from the same exotic animal refuge

Blogger Unknown said...

The three tigers in the tub is in fact my photo. I took it back in 2002; the tigers live at Exotic Feline Rescue Center an hour west of Indianapolis, where I'm a volunteer.

The pic has been all over the Internet for years.

(Thanks, RonO!)

I included the credit.

The uuuugly creature is, in fact, a typical wild turkey. If you've seen drawings of those turkeys, they have this fleshly appendage that usually hangs to one side of their beaks; it's a display thing. They expand and contract depending on the male turkey's... well... anyway, this one seems to have expanded all over uuuugly's beak, giving him the appearance of something bizarre and alien.

There's a local lady who does wild turkey races at fairs. It is the most freakin' hilarious thing you can imagine, because turkeys are Dumb.

Someeone gave me a tip to watch this site and I love it!

The "prayer bear" caption is the usual stance of a Polar Bear as it is about to pounce/grab a Seagull or (unlikely but has happened in rare cases) a human. The Polar bear will then do a death roll (similar to what a Nile croc does) and will break its victims neck.

Will, your comment made my day! very interesting.
