New Life Goal: Cuddle A Baby Walrus

This little guy is a 4-6-week-old walrus calf who was separated from his family and rescued by fishermen from an Alaskan lagoon. He’s currently being cared for at a marine rehabilitation center, where he’s giving (and getting) plenty of snuggles from the staff. Suddenly I am very aware of the lack of baby walrus in my life. Also, can I make a confession? This is my first time using the word “Squee” (I’m more of a “Beeeep!” girl myself), so I had to ask Jessica how many e’s are in a typical “Squee.” “As many as it needs,” she said, and after assessing this photo, declared, “Yup, that’s gonna be a four-e ‘squee.’” So wise, that one.

Oh, squee of squees! Joy rippled through the panda-verse yesterday: a mommy panda in the San Diego Zoo gave birth to a BABY PANDA!!!! Bai Yun gave birth to her sixth cub, which, if you know anything about how resistant pandas are to having sex, is a huge accomplishment. The newborn baby panda, whose gender will be unknown for several months, joins Bai Lun, daddy Gao Gao, and three-year-old brother Yun Zee. Her four other babies have been sent to China, obviously misdirected on their way to my house. Right now the panda young’un, which zookeepers jokingly call a “butter stick” due to its tiny size, is all pink, hairless, and nasty-looking. But you can bet that as soon as there are pics, I’ll be on it like white on rice … I mean, panda fur. [Los Angeles Times] [Photo: Getty]

I saw this Craigslist ad looking for a falconer to bring “an aggressive flying killing machine” to a 30th birthday posted on Facebook. I’m not sure if it’s for a party held by my old colleague who posted it on Facebook, or someone else, but it doesn’t matter: I want this Craigslist author to be my boyfriend. You know why? He knows what he wants. He wants someone with a “badass bird of prey, a “cool leather bird glove” and a “tiny bird helmet that the bird wears.” So few people know what they want in the world but this man is decisive.

And also, he will “understand if you weren’t comfortable letting a stranger hold an aggressive flying killing machine in my apartment.” But he hopes you are. This means he is flexible. That is also a quality we see too little of these days.

This sounds like it is going to be a bitchin’ party. I hope all his 30th birthday dreams come true. Find me, Falcon Boy. Seek me out! I’ll bring the dead mice. [Craigslist]

This Is How Leopard Slugs Have Sex

The Penis Fish
These are fish! Watch »

Just thought you’d like to know about the crazy way the leopard slugs do it. Those blue things are their penises, which emerge from their heads. So they always do it upside down. Oh, and why do they both have penises, you ask? Because slugs are hermaphrodites. After the jump, a more thorough explanation of the slug ritual. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

The Guinea Pig Olympics Are Almost As Riveting As The Real Thing
