I feel a flip book coming on!!! [singsong]

Turtle Junior has been CAPTURED! Susan the Farmgirl found him while "gardening" [That's farmspeak for turtle-huntin']

Check him out, he's all: "Oh, Crikey. That's it—I'm taking my pin-prick nostrils, and we're outta here!"

King_of_the_world_1

"I'll just be on my—Ehn!—way!" [waves claws]

King_of_the_world_3

"If you'll just let me—ehn!—down" [looks down the eqivalent of 800 miles]

King_of_the_world_4

"Don't make me take your kneecapsoutEHN!"

King_of_the_world_5

"FortheloveofPeteEhnnnnnnnnn!"

King_of_the_world_2

Great job, sender-inner Angela S. ;)

The last picture makes me think of that scene in the movie "Titanic."

Turtles are so funny. I love how they hide at first, and then EHHHHHNNNN!!!! their way to freedom.

Oh! Eeeny turkle! The cutest. I've always loved turtles and tortoises. I love the stretchy necks, the serious expressions, and their adorable front legs, perfect for digging.

I think 'ehn' is the perfect word to describe him. He's just so determined to get away you just want to give him a pat and set him down.

Nan
 |  Jul 24, 2006 at 08:02 AM

hahaHAAAA! all that effort!! this 'ehn' series is on par with the snail, which was also just fantastic.

"Behold the turtle! It only gets somewhere by sticking its neck out!"

(apologies to anyone who actually knows the quote)

How cute and tiny! Look at the little scales on the legs. I agree he does look ticked off. EHN! Lemme Go!

Holly

That gives a whole new meaning to "You're so cute when you're mad."

Kris

My personal favorite "tiny but tough" example is Henry Hawk from Looney Toons.

...Cause he's a chicken hawk and he eats chickens see... Now are ya gonna come along peaceable like or is he gonna hafa muss ya up.

I sent in almost identical pics about a month ago! Oh well. As long as turtles get some love on C.O. it's all good ;-)

I think, based on this submission, perhaps we can identify another rule of cuteness: claws, sharp beaks, fangs, or other "dangerous" things are cute if they are on tiny creatures. The same is exemplified by Mr. Paddles and his plaintive but not at all threatening claw from a few days ago.

Also, I think that the ear to head ratio rule actually is best described by a U-shaped function, as opposed to a negative correlation. Which is to say that either a very small ear to head ratio or a very large ear to head ratio will = cuteness.

Y'know, this little guy/gal might actually be smaller than my turtle shaped keychain.. Each photo is so great, and the series.. priceless.
