Penguin here.

Harp seals, a.k.a saddleback seals, actually dwell in the northernmost parts of the Atlantic ocean, and parts of the Arctic ocean.

I love this goofy picture. It looks like the adult seal was probably playing peekaboo with the pup. Or otherwise that they were having a philosophical conversations of sorts. What do you think was going on?

According to Wikipedia’s Muskox article, musk oxen live in herds numbering 12-24 in the winter and 8-20 in the summer. Musk oxen from Arctic areas in Canada, the United States, and Greenland, and though they have the word ‘oxen’ in their name, they are actually more closely related to sheep and goats rather than oxen.

There were two things that inspired me to choose a snow hare for my post today. Well… three if you count how adorable they are as one of the inspirations, but that’s a given for anything we post on this site.

The first is the fact that we had a crazy snow storm here yesterday, and the entire world was pure white coldness. It looked very pretty, though it was very inconvenient for many folks trying to get around the city.

The second reason was that there is an extremely cute mini game in the new Professor Layton game, which I got as a gift for Christmas this year, involving a chubby little bunny who’s learning how to act in plays – It’s very cute, and very fun. You teach the little guy to do cute actions and he performs them and it’s all very adorable.

Anyway, enough about the Layton bunny. Check this guy out, with his fully fluffed and snow white coat, prepared for a cold and snowy winter day, just like the one we had yesterday where I live:

Bring it on, Winter. I've got this!

Things have been very snowy, and very chilly around here lately. So, being surrounded by the wintery weather, we couldn’t help but think of some Arctic animals and figured we’d do an Arctic animal special here on ACAD.

Our first animal is the Arctic fox. To be precies: arctic fox pups! Aren’t these little foxes just the sweetest ever? I want to hug them so badly!

These guys are incredibly cute, hanging out under their little mini Christmas tree. What do you think you would ask for if you were a hamster? Penguin would ask for lots of sunflower seeds, because when Penguin was young(er) and had hamsters as pets, they would pick them out of their food and ignore most of the rest. I think I’d ask for a carrot, because I know for a fact that I would look very cute while eating it, and it might net me even more yummy and fun rewards. I would be quite a strategic little fuzzball.

Hi everyone. Aren’t these two little sweeties far too cute for words? I think so. Their noses are incredibly pink, their whiskers very goofy, and they’re so sleepy… I hope these little mice help boost your holiday spirit.

We were trying to think of what kinds of animals might be celebrating the holidays, and one of the ideas that came to us happened to be a cute, floppy eared, and friendly bunny. Looking it up, we found that bunnies seem to like wearing cute Christmas hats. Well, we can’t argue with that, especially when the hat helps to point out the size of their ears by not properly fitting over both!

It's the traditional holiday ear-flopping!
