Natural Hilarity Reaches a New High

Animals can not act for camera, so capturing weird and funny animal expressions requires a lot of skill and patience - but when it happens, it becomes pure comedy gold. See for example this shot: I bet you did not know that polar bears love to swim and talk on a cell phone at the same time! -

But this one is real - not a turtle, but something definitely similar?
UPDATE: It's a Cantor's giant turtle form Cambodia.

The "great fake" seems very unlikely to be a fake... that's just what opossums look like.

The flat turtle is a Cantor's giant turtle form Cambodia.

the fake isn't fake--it's called a Solenodon, and they live in Cuba and Haiti:

Your "monkey emoting" looks strangely like an ape.

Great collection.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Not just any ape, Anonymous @ 6:27 -- that's Snowflake, aka Copito de Nieve, an albino gorilla.

Tali - thank you. Updated.

The Soledonon criature reminds me of those garbage rats from Jim Henson's Fraggle rock.

Blogger Sigivald said...

The "rat vodka" is claimed to be mouse wine, used as a medicinal. Sources variously claim it to be Korean or Chinese, or that the entire thing may be a practical joke; at least one bottle (in a video) is evidently a soju bottle, and nobody sells mouse soju.

The Magic Kitten is reminiscent of late Louis Wain cats.

Blogger Avi Abrams said...

Sabina - that's exactly what I thought it was :)
Sigivald - this link is the definition of psychedelic cats...

I think you got the "Baby Bison" pic mixed up. I think this is the bison: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ucumari/455466354/in/set-72157600052294517/

And the photo you have are mountain goat/sheep lambs belonging to this creature: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ucumari/448407969/in/set-72157600052294517/

I was struck by how much that 'fierce owl' looks like Gimli [the dwarf] from Lord of The Rings...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

wow, that red tailed hawk giving a piggyback ride to a red shouldered lark is amazing!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

An interesting fact about the Solenoid is it's the only mammal that injects rattlesnake like venom through it's fangs. Nasty little critter.

Anonymous houndbound said...
