"Are they looking? No? Good, good. They won't miss this tire anyway." I like to believe that these two baby cubs set up an elaborate Ocean's 11-style heist to steal this truck's tire just so they could play with it.
I've never realized what a naturally concerned look puffins always have on their faces. This friend is clearly offering to carry some fish for their fellow puffin, but he clearly did a lot of hard work to get those fish and doesn't want to give any of them up.
"So then I said, "If you love fish so much, why won't you marry it?"
"Dude, your breath is not good."
You could be the largest, most majestic ape in the jungle and still get extremely bored sometimes. He doesn't feel like eating, he doesn't feel like sleeping, he doesn't feel like swinging from trees. What else is there to do as a gorilla?
While I don't think this sea turtle is actually giving us the finger, it sure looks like it. That's for all the plastic straws and other pollutants we dump in the ocean for wildlife to deal with.
I would pay 50 acorns to sit in a field and watch this little chipmunk sing his heart out. This is, in fact, my new goal in life — to attend a chipmunk concert.
This poor polar bear can't even with human-caused global climate change. There used to be ice for him to play and live on, and now, it's all melting. Let's do better for this polar bear, people!
When you get in the bath but you don't realize that it's been blasting boiling hot water for ten minutes... This little monkey was definitely caught by surprise.
Talk to the talons because the parrot don't wanna hear ya. It really does get old when you're friend does nothing but say, "Polly want a cracker" all day long. You don't even have any crackers.
You know when you hear a funny joke and your mom is like, "What's the joke?" and you start telling it and then slowly you both realize that it's way too inappropriate for a child to tell their mother? Yeah, I think that's what happened here.
Imagine being a baby elephant still getting used to your giant ears and your long trunk! I bet every elephant falls on their face at least once while they're growing up.
I cannot get over the very human-looking teeth that this fish has. It looks like he's welcoming you into his home,saying, "Howdy, thanks for stopping by! You can put your shoes right there next to the anemone, and then come on into the reef for some wine and cheese!"
Ah yes. I also remember having "the talk" with my parents. Pretty sure that's what my face looked like too.
Can you imagine being a bug and have those eyes, which take up about half of your body? You'd be able to see everything, which is probably good because there are probably a lot of creatures out there trying to eat you.
Aaaaaand he's stuck. Raccoons really are the most ridiculous little animals. They are probably the least graceful of the wild animals. But they're also the most adorable.
