La la la snakes photo discussion

Ha ha ha ha ha! Peese shut mouf, woomun. That is Larry the croc from Pearls Before Swine, created by Stephen Pastis. He is the most hilarious character.

That chinchilla is so awesome! Look at him! With his little hands! If anyone out there has a chinchilla, please comment saying so.

That rabbit is freaky. Look at his ears! Look at his tail! I just don't like rabbits as much as other people do. But I would never murder one.

That snake is so shiny, like, how does he get so shiny? Like, shiny shiny?

What do YOU think of these photos? comment our opinions.

Momdude is home today. She is fine. But the cat Ray Charles is being bad and refuses to interact with anyone. All he ever does all day is be depressed without reason to be so depressed. Sometimes he reminds me of Larry the croc, but other times he does not.

la la la snakes.

iris, i think ray charles is just depressed because he missed your mother. maybe now that she's home he will get back to normal.

that snake is very shiny. i think it's because of all the sunscreen and lotions snakes wear all the time. man, snakes are soooo vain.

My cousin's doggy was upset for a few days after she came home from the hospital. I think the hospital smells take a few days to go away, and it confuses pets a bit. Ray Charles will be fine!

I hope you keep posting here, Iris uber Alles. Love your posts!

I'm glad Momdude is home, too. I hope she feels a little better every day. Perhaps Ray Charles is showing he doesn't like his routine disturbed.

The snake looks shiny because he has scales; each one reflects light. Think of sequins on a shirt or dress and you get the same effect. Each scale is at a slightly different angle from the other scale. Also, the scales are of a reflective material. You can probably figure out for yourself why that is, and how it helps the snake.

I like the word "chinchilla"...CHINCHILLA!!!! What a great name for an animal. Chinchillas are so lucky.

My friend and her husband have two chinchillas. They can't take regular baths so they give themselves dust baths (the chinchillas, not my friend and her husband. That would just be weird). It's pretty cute when they do. They also can't get fleas cause of that thick fur you were talking about, which is funny, cause the cats that live in the same house ALWAYS seem to have fleas.

Also, my mom had two chinchillas when she was little. She named them Samantha and Darren after Bewitched.
