For those of you old enough to have seen the cartoon...every time you see that picture, you'll now hear either

"I don't drink tea...I drink COFFEE! HEEEEEE!"
or "I want a whole LOTTA lumps!"


you're welcome.

cryinoutloud: GungFu: WTF is this shiat?

The first one is a platypus. It's for reals. And the second one is a jackalope, but they only live on our walls, despite what some people have heard.



A beaver with a duck bill? Bullshiat. Next you'll be telling me it lays eggs.

I know a friend who breeds rabbits and some have horns. I think they are real. They're called antelabbits, though.

All these lousy taxidermy photos reminded me of this movie (new window).

Pestifer: The thing looks a lot like a heraldic lion. Thank god those farkers were killed off in the 11th century.

Noon Blue Apples: GungFu: WTF is this shiat?

The second picture is a jackalope - not real
The first one is a platypus, and I assure you, it's real



Are you trying to con me? jackalope looks real. I googled the pic so it must be real.

Never seen a 'playpus' before, therefore, it's fake. People just stuck different bits of animals together. It's so unconvincing.

LOL. Here's a bad photoshop of a hedgehog with porcupine needles! It's REAL. Haha!

Looks for all the world like the lion was done up in the style of the old heraldic images. A lion passant, in this case.

A similar story is told about the lion sculptures flanking the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, London. The artist, Sir Edwin Landseer, had never seen a lion when he was commissioned to create them in 1867 so he was provided with the semi-dessicated corpse of one to use as his model. It didn't work out very well, so he ended up using his St. Bernard instead. The result is decidedly canine, especially the paws:

Enemabag Jones: I always like the 'experimental' taxidermy done around the 19th century.

They were making fish with fur, , monkeys that lived in the water and other animals that did not exist as high concept works of art, and just dares. Some were really, really well done.

Because of this the duck-billed platypus was rejected as a real animal.

/I forgot what this line of taxodermy was called.


Awesome. It was called AWESOME.
