P. Z. Myers posts a felid

If P. Z. doesn’t stop doing this, I’ll be forced to start putting up cephalopods.  Right now I’ll blast him out of the water with this baby pygmy marmoset:

Like Kim Jong Il, I can threaten with big weapons: I already have a baby anteater video  . . .

    Now, I’m not a zoologist, but doesn’t seem to be a felid or a cephalopod or even a lepidopteran.

    Have you considered that perhaps this is part of my clever plan to compel everyone to post about cephalopods?

      Oh, I just understand why you said you felt “ashamed” in your blog… 🙂

    I never thought I’d see the day with atheists trying to out-cute each other.

    Can anyone tell me where to find the original picture, or a better quality one?

    Puts me in mind of this…

    Apparently there was a time when you really could buy a monkey from a comic book ad.

    I want one!. Much cuter than the small yappy type dog Mrs Kitchener wants to get.

    Aww!

    When I worked at the zoo (Woodland Park) I took care of a couple of baby Golden Lion Tamarins for awhile (also took care of their parents at various times). Yup they’re thumb size all right. Smelly little bastards though.
