Squirrel-Skunk love child braves taunts of other forest creatures simply to “collect nuts like all the other squirrels do.”

November 10, 2008

The squirrel in the photograph above resides near Sauble Beach in the South Bruce Penninsula of Canada. Local homeowners were surprised by squirrel’s unusually coloring. So they snapped some pics of the squirrel at the park.

The newspaper running this story, The Record, suggests that this is a piebald squirrel

— the term piebald applies to any animal displaying depigmented white fur.

The condition is genetically tied in to the development of the animal’s nervous system. According to some sources, it’s most common in horses but does affect other species.

Your Daily Chum readers are far too savvy to fall for such an obvious lie. Let’s face it, the squirrel is the byproduct of an ages-old situation. Let me explain.

So very sad.

Bad houseguest: Raccoon comes over and destroys man’s kitchen wall.

Some NSFW language as the gentleman isn’t so happy to see the raccoon has ate several large holes in his drywall.

Whales bide time before bloody revolution by blowing bubble rings. Foolish humans…….we’ll see who’s laughing soon enough.

The beluga whale above resides at the Hamadas aquarium, near Tokyo, Japan. Scuba divers taught the whales to blow bubble rings. I’m guessing these whales are doing it to appease the aquarium staff, and lull them into a false sense of confidence. Then, when the moment is right, the belugas will crush their land-dwelling oppressors. The tanks will flow with the blood of the two-legged tyrants! Belugas are nobody’s bitches….Delphinapterus leucas bows before no human!

When will the animal kingdom become more tolerant? From Ananova

Piglet with monkey’s face

Villagers were shocked after a monkey-like piglet was born in China.

Curious locals flocked to the home of owner Feng Changlin after news of the piglet spread in Fengzhang village, Xiping township.

“It’s hideous. No one will be willing to buy it, and it scares the family to even look at it!” Feng told Oriental Today.

He says the piglet looks just like a monkey, with two thin lips, a small nose and two big eyes. Its rear legs are also much longer than its forelegs, causing it to jump instead of walk.

Feng’s wife said the monkey-faced piglet was one of five newborns of a sow which the family had raised for nine years.

“My God, it was so scary. I didn’t known what it was. I was really frightened,” she said.

“But our son likes to play with it, and he stopped us from getting rid of it. He even feeds it milk.”

Neighbours have suggested the couple keep the piglet to see how it looks as it matures.

Leeches-they’re not just for dinner anymore

Nope, they have assorted medical benefits, too. Leeches aren’t necessarily used for vanity proceedures like fish pedicures, but for serious medical procedures helping reattached fingers heal quicker. **Not for the squeamish**

Apparently, some types of catfish can walk around on land as long as they stay moist.  Bizarre sounding, and even more bizarre looking.  Check out the video here.
