Kenny The Tiger


Of course Kenny the tiger did not have Downs syndrome, his deformities were due to inbreeding. He was an interesting looking cat though. Unfortunately, Kenny's lifespan was significantly shortened as well, he only lived for 10 years. So to the breeders, in the words of Kyle and Stan on South Park, "They killed Kenny!" "You bastards!"

Unfortunate Allergy

image
Some women, aproximately 12%, are allergic to their partner's semen. Even worse, some men are allergic to their own semen. The allergy causes some nasty reactions in both cases unfortunately.

Free Ride

An amazing picture of a weasel riding on a woodpecker in flight. Flying for free and no TSA, lucky beast!

The Hairy Water Tortoise of China

image

I cannot figure out if this is a legitimate species, or a freak. This article seems to imply it was a common tortoise with vegetation affixed to its back.

Sexy Pig Statue

image

This is not an anthropomorphic Miss Piggy in her ballgown and gloves. It's a barnyard-realistic pig dressed for the bedroom. Make of it what you will.

Buy yours here.

Bite The Hand That Eats You

image
A chef was killed by a bite from the disembodied head of an Indonesian spitting cobra. He had decapitated it 20 minutes earlier in preparation of a local dish. They say not to bite the hand that feeds you, the hand that eats you is another thing apparently.
