Looking around the web, there are hundreds of articles, pictures, and videos of animals. Whether they be interesting, fun, or amazing, here is the thread to share your favourites. Iíll start you off with this article from Colchester zoo about the birth of a baby Aardvark. Apparently, its about the size of a banana, and its skin is so soft it definitely isnít aard enough!

These animals posts are very much the way to my heart, DS.

Here's a page I'm constantly returning to for just one more look.

Holy crap, that page is full of ridiculously cute things. I think the picture of the little birdies is my favorite. It's just so artistic-looking, on top of being ridiculously cute!

Oh, Lovely Kairos!

Yes, I think I have to agree on the birds, taaroko. Number 2 Ė the cat down the cleavage made me laugh, and I think Meme has incredibly sad eyes.

Kairos, I totally get sucked into cute overload too! I can't get enough of the furry little kittens and puppies, I just want to scoop them up and cuddle with them.

I have a total weakness for Siberian Huskies. With their fluffy fur and blue eyes...I just love them.

I was talking to a friend at work today, and quite out of the blue she said to me, "<KAIROS!> HAVE YOU SEEN THE SLOW LORIS?"

My answer of course was "YES! HOLY CRAP! YOU'VE SEEN IT TOO?!"

Then we watched this video together. On a loop.

So, forum members....HAVE YOU SEEN THE SLOW LORIS?

He's adorable! And he reminds me of my cat...!

This video always makes me smile. Especially the bit just before the endÖ

Because I'm as ignorant as a real tabula rasa on upload or down load of vid, pic manips or even userpics, due to so little time available, not to mention learning all the additional software, I tune into what others have done and this site has captions to pictures and even has connections to the "cute" of whatever is your interest.

my mom is pretty hooked on this eagle sitting on its hatchlings webcam. A lot of nothing happens but you sometimes see the hatchings or hatchings. It is oddly hypnotic....

From Staying Alive Real Poems for Unreal Times


Because I love Mother Goose, who knows and loves best Buffy and her Angel, I offer this in the way to say I love you for loving them and their place in you.


Wild Geese

You don't have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clearn blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Mary Oliver

Hugs!
