In this rare photo of a robin being spontaneously generated suggests that the egg did not, in fact, come first.
Giant freshwater prawns aren’t all that impressed with modern HDTV’s.
You forgot to depress the lever, didn’t you?
When put into Park, the pelican’s bill is locked in place, preventing accidental slippage. Before changing gears, it is imperative to depress the lever and safely unlock the bill. Otherwise, the bill can become damaged.
When forced to fight, the American turkey can deploy it’s razor-sharp feathers to help convince predators to pursue easier prey.
Western banded geckos are a common choice for beginner lizard climbers. This is largely due to the easy footholds, the relatively low slope and the easily accessible resting cave that can serve as a basecamp.
It’s hard to get a mate as a bird. You must keep your feathers in perfect order, defend your territory, and have a perfect song. You must excel in your conformity.

I was a little too slow with the camera and just missed the big pillow fight. It’s a shame, really. It would have been a fantastic photo.
Pelicans prefer white meat.
A-frame cheetahs are inexpensive to build and provide both stability and speed of construction.

Those that fought, fell beneath the onslaught of spines and ever marching roots. The bullets did not stop them, flesh healing over into hardened knots, protecting them againt further violation. They were impervious to drought, to heat. And, as the humans made their planet ever warmer, eventually the next generation of triffids ruled over all.
As dusk falls, and the last gleam of the setting sun casts itself over the desert, cactus wrens tell their hatchlings bedtime stories and hope that the rains will fall before they fledge.
This snake’s scales overlap everywhere but on the head. This keeps costs low when trying to find the source of a leak.
Wikipedia says “The gray fox appeared during the mid Pliocene epoch 3.6 million years ago.” That must have been quite the surprise to the Irish elk.
And probably, to the foxes as well.
Not having exterior ears on which to hook the elastic, snakes must wear their party masks on their sides.
“Mmm, marmalade. Yep, pretty sure that was marmalade.”
