This isn't scary but one of them is a duck - sort of...

Orphaned squirrel monkey Loki clings to his toy duck at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia, Thursday, Jan. 19, 2006. Loki, who lost his mother shortly after birth eight weeks ago, has been hand raised by zoo staff and will be introduced to the rest of the Squirrel Monkey's when once he is weaned and learns to regulate his body temperature.

Okay, everyone together now.... aaaaaaaaw!

What, when you get older you're supposed to ingest less liquids and not be all red-faced and sweaty? Why do they only allow beer to grownups then eh? Eh?

rob - Dude?

misty - The monkey's okay, but the duck! Oh, the duck!

gw - I don't think so, but Paul had plans last spring for a badgkey. Read his April 28, 2005 post at He doesn't say if he's managed to create one, though.

My God. Is there anything Google can't find?

Oh can I remain sarcastic and cynical in the face of such overt cuteness....

Now the badger is up for some competition as far as cuteness goes :)

Come to think of it...isn't Loki the Norse god of evil, enemy of the The Mighty Thor?

No, really...
