Even More Cuteness, Part 3

Does anybody else need some cuteness this Friday? Yeah, me too. Five different kinds of cuteness, coming right up.

Four baby raccoons in a tree! (A group of raccoons is called a gaze.)

Fennec foxes. (A group of these would be called a leash, a skulk, or an earth.) The pets I want almost as much as hedgehogs and sugar gliders. Look at those ears!

Baby sloth in a box! For extra squeals, here's a video of baby sloths taking a bath! (A whole bunch of them together are a "bed" of sloths :)).

Koala taking a nap. (There's no name for a group of these, because they hang out by themselves.) Sooo cuddly.

And squirrel monkeys goofing off for the camera. (Hehe, a group of monkeys is called a troop of monkeys!)

Happy Friday!

    Q: What do you call a group of koalas?
    A: A surprise!

  2. Mum showed me the sloth bath time video. I want a sloth! I would hang it up to dry and feed it hibiscus flowers. I wonder how Scooter would like a sloth brother.

    Also, that koala looks a bit like Yoda in that photo.

    1. I think Scooter would get along with a sloth brother very well--as long as it knew who was boss. That bath time video makes me smile every time :)

  3. A gaze, huh? That's funny. Fennec foxes are so cute! They were the mascot for the interpreting class after mine.

    1. Oh really? That's awesome! I found out about them in college, and now I use a National Geographic article on them to teach my students outlining :)
