I was so happy to stumble upon this awesome post today. Just look how adorable this sonoran pronghorn fawn is! This little guy has goofy colouration too. I bet you couldn’t guess what he would possibly look like all grown-up, which is why I’m also going to post a picture of an adult too.

By the way, an interesting tidbit I also learned was that pronghorns are the second fastest land mammals on Earth; after the cheetah, that is.

I found this picture of a baby seal pup and I could not help but share it with you guys. It’s so super cute! Doesn’t he look so sweet?
By the way, seals are pinnipeds (aquatic fin-footed carnivorous mammals) which is a superfamily including the likes of walruses, eared seals (such as sea lions), and earless seals. You should read about this and more here in Wikipedia’s pinniped article.

Part of our usual winter woes is catching a cold (just like Blue Bear, my sister, and I did). But catching a cold isn’t all that bad when you have a cute kleenex box like this one to keep you company:

This is my sister’s kleenex box. A special thanks to her for taking a picture of it to share with us!

Now, here’s a picture of a goofy king penguin chick:

I love this little sleepy koala. Isn’t he just the cutest? He’s so soft and fuzzy that he almost looks like a plush toy!

I noticed that it is very often that you find pictures of sleeping koalas and I now know the reason why. According to Wikipedia’s Koala article, koala bears have a low metabolic rate for a mammal (just like sloths and wombats) and so they actually rest and stay motionless for 16 to 18 hours a day.

To kick off the new year koala style, the next few posts will be about one of our favorite animals: the koala bear.

When I first saw this picture, I couldn’t help but gush at how absolutely adorable this little koala buddy is. Seriously, just look at the fuzz on those ears! How badly do you want to cuddle with him? He’s irresistibly cute.

Just look at those fuzzy ears!
