A duck checking out some rabbits

There is a park near where I live.

At the park there is an aviary.

At the aviary there is this duck.

A Spider on a Frog on a Turtle

I’ve missed a lot while I was gone. Apparently this has been everywhere, but I hadn’t seen it. I’ll share it with you just incase you somehow missed it too.

These people say they found them like that. It is the best thing.

Thanks Mirick from the Something Awful Forums!

The Tapir’s Capybara Pillow

Last week Emi posted a picture of a malaysian tapir being kept awake by otters. Today I found a picture of a new world tapir actually being assisted in its sleep by a different kind of semi-aquatic mammal!

I’m not sure why the capybara is allowing the tapir to use it as a pillow. Does anybody know if these two species have a special kind of bond? That’d be neat! The idea that these two individuals just have a special bond is pretty cool too!

Pesky otters

This is another picture from Point Defiance. I could go into detail on how the Asia exhibit works, but pretty much the day we were there the river otters and tapir enclosures were connected.

There were only two of us FWers that got to see this, but we got a kick out of it!

a warthog and also a vulture

There was a short lived blog that’s still very popular on StumbleUpon called Let’s Be Friends. I like their theme, but I’m partial to ugly animal friendships.

big baby bird

I’m supposedly a grown man, but this kind of thing always makes me squeal.

From the description on the photo’s Flickr page:

    Beemer is a blue-fronted Amazon. I got him from Bob Wheeler when he was 2 weeks old and raised him as a birthday present for my husband Jeff. Rowdy is a Pacific parrotlet. From the first time he saw Beemer, he somehow recognized that this creature towering over him was a baby, and began trying valiantly to feed him. Here he’s preening Beemer’s baby feathers.

I just think this is so great.
