That last one looks like a bad Photoshop.

yea... I got rid of it

The "pet" is a Moloch, a lizzard that lives in the dessert. The wings are photoshopped in.

The squirrel keyboard one...reminds me of when my nephew was about three years old and I had to look after him. He would always try and copy me and "mash" my keyboard while I was doing stuff. I found a spare unplugged keyboard and put it in front of him. Loved it, both of us happy. What a great story (not).

That last photo is of Prairie Dogs not squirrels.

Marmots actually..

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Definitely NOT a marmot, Maurice. They're prarie dogs, for sure.

Blogger MauriceH said...

Technically we are both right:
Class: Mammalia
Order: Rodentia
Suborder: Sciuromorpha
Family: Sciuridae
Tribe: Marmotini

Prairie Dogs ARE members of the marmot tribe, and we are quibbling over the genus:
Genus: Cynomys, versus:
Genus: Marmota
I still think they are genus marmota in that picture
They look to be too big to be prairie dogs.
BTW, I live in Alberta, where we see both, not to mention Richardson's Ground Squirrels, often confused with prairie dogs as well.
In any case, they are rodents..

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Haha fair enough Maurice.

But I'm also familiar will all of those (I'm from Colorado), and prarie dogs live in the fields by my house. My vote is prairie dogs.

But I do see the arguement for marmot. They look pretty large in that picture. Although... not THAT large. ;)

I still spelled prairie wrong. I coulda sworn I threw that 'i' in there both times. Oh well.
