Apolitical Beastie Roundup

I know I ought to be writing about the Middle East, but I just don't have the heart for it, and I don't have any helpful suggestions just now. So instead, here are some cool, cute, amazing, and/or just plain weird animals for your enjoyment. Have a nice day.

  • Yet another cute echidna photo. Awwwww....
  • Rosy-lipped batfish I wonder what the creationists would make of this beastie?
  • King-of-Salmon (note: not a salmon)
  • Three new species of mouse lemur
  • From Cute Overload: Baby Turtle! Awwww....
  • More turtles, this time with a local connection.
  • In other reptile news: All Your Snakes Are Belong To Us!!!
  • In even more kinda-reptilian-ish creature news, Exclamation Mark has a piece up about "It! The Terror from Beyond Space".
  • In the not-yet-a-monster-movie department, Japanese researchers are working on a robotic giant squid. Why does Japan always get all the coolest gadgets, and we don't?
  • From the amazing and definitely not cute department: I don't know what sort of animal Floyd Landis is, but I sure wouldn't want to be in his way. Still, as someone who spent the last few years rooting against ol' whatsisname from Texas and his whole marketing juggernaut, it's nice to have a "normal", likeable person win for once. Chapeau, Floyd!
