You... Are... So... Beeyoooteefull...

Oi peeps, Theo here wit' a quick News Of Teh Qte™ update...

Orangu-tiger

Click the pic above for more photos, from BBC News.

Tigerang_mini I'm guessing that there's probably about three boatloads of folks who've sent this in to the regular CO submissions mailbox, but since I don't ever see that, I'll just say that RedZilla (and me Schmoop) pointed me in this direction. [grateful thanks]

<-- clicking THIS pic will get you a detailed writeup from CNN.com.

Tiger: "You look like you taste good - can I have a nibble?"

Orang: "Try it, stripy-butt, and I'll set the Bursar on you."*

*Unseen University reference - read books, people!!

I think that orang babies are the cutest babies of all, so I'm a bit biased, but that is too adorable for words!

...and I love kittehs of any kind...

Ah, evidence of the prehistoric connection between humans and kitties.

Jen Barnett
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:10 PM

Tony, I believe the comment would be:
Orang: "ook! OOOkkk! OOkkk!!!" followed by a banana toss. After all the Librarian was above speaking mere human language.

Just flipped through the other photos on BBC for this...I LURVE the one of the baby orangs trying to help bottlefeed on of the wee tiggers.

jenn
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:17 PM

In the article, I noticed the part about how they'll have to separate the little friends once the tigers get old enough to start thinking "hmmmm....I wonder what George there would taste like..."

you guys r silly

Toooooo cute! I saw this on the news today. I hope they can be friends forever...

Good call, Teho!

 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:23 PM

Teho, you picked my fave out of the BBC pics!

I have total orang hair in the morning, and sometimes my kitteh will try to lick-tame it for me. I like to think that this is what tiger is doing here for orang.

Theo can we please have TAI SHAN panda on here before he gets to big to fit on the screen. Prettypleasesugarcubesontop.

(NOTE -- updated the post a bit & added a new photo link)

Theo
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:34 PM

Oh, my god, this is by far the CUTEST THING I have EVER seen on CO!

Esther
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:36 PM

What do you mean interspecies snorgling?
That's my brother!

Good job puddy tat ain't lying on the Good Librarians banana stash..... it's all I'm saying peeps....

My farts smell delicious.

Dook
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:42 PM

OMG, the expression in the eyes says it all! I just had a serotonin overdose from so much cuteness.

China's Mom
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:42 PM

Oooh, I saw this picture in the Toronto Metro paper yesterday morning (freebie commuter rag). I was thinking what a perfect CO pic. What lovely synergy today to see it here!

Michelle
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:45 PM

once again, animals can teach people a thing or two, if we are willing to pay attention.

lovely story.

jen
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 12:56 PM

Tony James- Don't you mean "and I'll *go* bursar on you?" :P

shanchan
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:01 PM

we're just a movin' along
singin a song
side by siiide !!

redhed
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:02 PM

oook indeed.

& Tony J. - can't imagine setting the Bursar on anyone would do any good, unless he's crazy from too many dried frog pills. the only thing more dangerous than the Librarian is the Luggage.

[/geekiness]

cutest orang ever. can't blame him for cuddling with the kitteh. anybody else thinking about Koko and her kitten?

gisbert
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:02 PM

those orang eyes slay me!!!!!!!

Tor
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:02 PM

i think there's something wrong with my survival instincts; i'm afraid of orangutans, but i want to snorgle tigers.

anner
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:06 PM

I dunno, Anner. I think both creatures could potentially do an equal amount of damage.

DKN
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:11 PM

fuzzzeeee snorgleyyyy baaahhhhbeessss! Luvs 'em.

Claire
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:16 PM

OMG! That first photo KILLS me! They are looking at each other so adoringly.

Angela-Eloise
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:24 PM

Is that like some inverted Princess-Di-eyes going on there with the orangutan?

heidilynn
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:39 PM

Orang:
Tonight you're mine completely,
I'll love you 'til you try to eat me,
Just tell me now that I don't have to run,
Will you still love me tomorrow?

kayte
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:41 PM

Can somebody please tell me WHY THERE IS NO VIDEO OF THESE GUYS!

We need video, people.

Very, very cute!

Wendy
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:51 PM

This is so cute it almost makes me all teary-eyed! I think it's because they can't be friends forever and I just saw the fox & the hound last week.

Mary
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:52 PM

Attention Meg - don't think we don't read these things you say.

You NEVER see the regular submission box? What is up with that?

Carrie - Perturbed
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 01:54 PM

Thanks for mentioning that, Carrie-Perturbed. Now I know why nothing I send ever appears here. Meg, is there a secret submission box?

LIEvans
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 02:02 PM

Carrie, Leslie -- Theo posted this goodie, not Meg (see the line just under the top caption).

Pheas
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 02:05 PM

what a cute pair of freinds, that is !!!!!
interspecies snorgles going on here today

leah
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 02:11 PM

Carrie and Leslie -- the difference is, *I* am Theo. *MEG* (the site owner, founder, primary creative force, etc.) sees the submissions email. This mailbox is routinely stuffed to the gills & overflowing.

I'm the Moderator, she's the Fearless Leader. And both of us do Cute Overload in our scarce free time.

Theo
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 02:39 PM

Yes, I'm one of the boatloads of folks who sent it in, too. This is the cutest friggin' thing I have ever seen!!!!! I have had the pleasure of playing with tiger cubs and orangutan babies and they are both forces to be reckoned with!

Thanks for posting it!

Kathy
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 02:47 PM

My head just 'sploded from the cutieness... I'm getting flashbacks from "the Fox and the Hound", though.

**wanders out singing "when you're teh best of friends..." **

 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 03:08 PM

Apparently, Carrie doesn't read the captions.

I am relieved to read that these adorable buddies will be separated in due time.

I can't help but shake my head at the idiots who dressed up piglets like tigers and gave them to a tiger. Or the idiots who created this:
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/object/dip?o=1&f=/g/archive/2006/11/07/dip.DTL

I can't believe those nutjobs nutjobs trying to "show nature's harmony." Nature ain't sentimental, people! Remember that nutjob guy who died in that bear documentary, after he had "befriended" the bears?

I can't figure out how to do the link but there's a GORGEOUS photo in this same series of a baby piglet with its adoptive Mom ...

A two-year-old piglet approaches its adoptive mother Sai Mai, a six-year-old tiger, at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand's Chonburi Province, nearly 100 km (62 miles) east of Bangkok, February 16, 2007. Zoo staff outfitted the piglet in traditional Chinese wear, ahead of the Chinese Lunar New Year of the 'Year of the Pig', which starts on February 18 REUTERS/Adrees Latif (THAILAND)...

and in this photo, Mom is lying down and LICKING her baby piglet ...

Yeah, it's cute until the piglet stubs his toe and squeals, setting off his "mom"'s predator instinct. I'm just saying.

Arvay
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 03:56 PM

They're going to make the next super-cute species: TIKEYS!

Specklet
 |  Feb 28, 2007 at 03:57 PM

That picture will definitely brighten your day. I wish I was rich enough to own both!
