Not-so-old coot

A person on The Amazing Regret Index and a person on the Something Awful forums both independently said “coots are uglorable” sometime in the past week. I haven’t heard anybody else mention any animals, so why not post a coot.

This coot chick appears to be resting its head on its mother. I will probably be posting a couple more of these soon, there are a few great pictures of coots.

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.

Barn owl

Barn owls seem so dreamlike to me. Their faces look like those of an ancient mythical creature. What is it?
