Cuban Tree Frog, Florida

Photograph by James Snyder

This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in my backyard in southern Florida.  How and why he ate this light is a mystery.  It should be noted that at the time I was taking this photo, I thought this frog was dead, having cooked himself from the inside.  I’m happy to say I was wrong.  After a few shots he adjusted his position.  So after I was finished shooting him, I pulled the light out of his mouth and he was fine.  Actually, I might be crazy but I don’t thin he was very happy when I took his light away.

Seized Horses Cared For After Owner's Arrest

From the article:

When asked for proper documentation to bring horses across state lines, he gave them a “Letter of Commitment to Jesus,” police said.

Maybe it’s just because I used to work for the Division of Animal Health at the state Department of Agriculture—which is responsible for issuing permits to allow animals to cross the state line—but I thought that was hilarious.

From the Bookie Wookie review of Rudyard Kipling’s Just-So Stories comes this illustration of the three main characters in “The Beginning of the Armadillos,” which to my knowledge is a true and accurate portrayal of how armadillos came to be. (And which you should definitely read if you haven’t already, because the part where these three characters (a hedgehog, a tortoise, and a jaguar, if you couldn’t tell) are conversing by the Amazon River is hilarious.)

Why did this show up when I searched for the #armadillo tag? Not that it isn’t cute and all, but come on.
