Insects can be beautiful.
I’m guessing Photoshop was involved with this image, if not somebody needs to stop feeding the sheep so much helium.
I don’t like cats much. Okay, I had two cats that were awesome, but most cats are not my cup of tea. Why? Well, this comic by Jim Benton tells the tale very well. Cats are often mean for no reason. Dogs rule. Oh, yeah, Jim Benton is pretty cool too.
I happened across this artist’s site today. I believe the Internet community loves cats, so I thought I’d share some of Marja Hagborg cat drawings and paintings with the readers of Bizarre Bytes. You can visit her website by clicking the link below.
A Midsummer Cat
Love that the one cat has a goldfish in his drink.
Makes Sense to me.

A wasp looks like it is doing a daring trapeze act while being dangled from a blade of grass by four red ants. The insects lifted the wasp by his wings as they carried him back to their nest. Photographer Uda Dennie captured the team work outside his home in Batam Island, Indonesia. He said: “I love taking close-up photos of insects because it reveals things you rarely see. I went outside to look for insects and found these ants working together to carry the dead wasp back to their nest.”
One can only hope that this kitty cat does indeed land on his feet. As far as cat-related animated gifs go, this one is fairly hilarious and worthy of watching for at least 3 minutes straight. Seeing the back legs of this cat stretch out and shake makes it all worth while.
While participating in a herpetology study we stumbled across this female laying eggs in a nest. She was found in the Lambsuango Forest reserve and was immediately released after this photograph was taken.
While not your dragon of myth and legend, this miniature dragon does give you pause to think this might be how those legends started. Another image of the Indonesian dragon is below, this time without the impressive wingspan.
Buddy will always have a place in this home…as a dog now and one day as a throw rug. Stay, Buddy, stay!
Can you imagine a few things more cute and Awwwwww-inpiring than this? An armful of kittens would be a great therapy session, I think. I can just imagine the soft purring right now…listen, can you hear it too?
I don’t know what this cat is complaining about, it looks like he just got his hairy butt saved by a fireman. But he does have that WTF look that most ungrateful cats have after you just did something nice for them. Oh well, scared, wet and cold is probably the last three things any cat wants to be. But you must admit, this kitty is one shaggy looking mess.
As most people know, most octopuses have four sets of arms. Before you start biology and grammar raging, yes octopuses is a correct pluralization, yes they have sets, and yes they’re arms, not tentacles. Trust me, I checked wiki. This little guy, however, has nine arms. Unfortunately, he was not spared because of that fact, despite the rare condition only showing up every 20 years. The Japanese seafood shop he was found in only discovered this after having already boiled it. I hope your insatiable hunger for exotic and rare creatures of the world has been quelled at least temporarily, you life eating monsters.
Today’s modern furniture craftsmen could learn a thing or two from Seth Kinman. Kinman was a legendary grizzly trapper, musician, barkeep, hotel owner, furniture maker, and general Renaissance mountain man. As a mentor to Chuck Norris, he ate nails for breakfast without any milk and used rocks as toilet paper because bark was too soft. Oh, and here’s a chair he made out of freaking grizzly bears. As captioned, it was given to President Johnson in 1865; without a doubt the best gift he ever received. President Lincoln was also presented with a special chair made out of elk horns. Apparently no one told Kinman he could use wood to make furniture. The man himself is pictured below in all his rugged glory.
If you’re not impressed yet, check out the chair with its real special feature, a bear’s head popping out of the bottom. Read about his custom violin as well.
Quick, name all the animals you know that wear a hat. Admit it, the only ones you could come up with were Fozzy Bear and Smokey the Bear. See, that’s the problem; the bears have cornered the entire recognizable-animals-that-wear-a-hat market. Now it’s time for one of our arachnid friends, Chummy, to throw his hat in the ring (pun intended). Behold, and be amazed by its prettiness!

As if sharks weren’t scary enough, try to imagine one with only one eye in the middle of its head. Oh wait, you don’t have to, we have pictures. This little bugger, let’s call him “Louis,” not only has the rare condition of cyclopia, but is also albino. Mexican fisherman Enrique Lucero León was “lucky” enough to catch a pregnant dusky shark near the Gulf of California and find Louis, one of the unborn embryos. Local biologists have gotten permission from Enrique to study Louis and while he’s gotten offers from others to buy the shark, he refuses to part with it. I can’t imagine why, though; Louis is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen.
No, you can’t unsee this.
Louis next to his normal siblings.
Yes, he is smiling at you…with his lifeless doll’s eye.
National Geographic has the whole story here. Now excuse me while I go relieve myself of my lunch.
“Hmm, I better get these plant seeds out of this web so they can grow in the ground. I’ll just OH MY GOD!” is probably what the man filming this thought. Obviously he knew they were spiders because no one wants to watch seeds, but you get the idea. At first it looks like 200 cute little sleeping spiders, but then they turn into 200 ravenous man-eating death monsters. Once they’ve cleared the area, they turn back into a conglomerate of cuteness, waiting for their next strike. It’s too bad they already blew their cover.
“Goth vs Gay – Even in the animal kingdom it is a cold war.” Wait…what? I’m sure the gay bird and the goth bird will get along swimmingly at some point. My question is where is the emo bird.
Oh, wait. Here is is.
Like many things, I find this creepy and cool at the same time. The image is funny but you have to remember that it’s really just four dead flies lying on a piece of paper. Quite morbid, really. Magnus Muhr has a bunch more of these, but they’re also in another language so we can’t enjoy some of the captions he wrote. Check them out on acidcow.com.
I know you’ve seen this video and the dog itself is pretty weird, but the response to this video is even better.
You might recognize the track from Bruce Almighty when Steve is possessed by Jim Carrey to make a bunch of weird noises on a live news show. The results are hilarious. The strange thing is that it matches up almost perfectly with the dog…
Ever wanted a frog but was put off because you couldn’t pet its fur? Did you wish that pigs were more slimy? Problem solved. If you put aside the moral and ethical complications that come with a genetic splicing of two different species to create a freakish hybrid cute monster, this is the pet for you. The prog…the frig…well, we’re still working on the name.
