    1. I have it on good authority that his name is actually Gus.

  1. It’s a Tenrec of some sort.. spiny maybe? I saw it on NatGeoWild once … but can’t remember which kind it is.


    This is a lowland streaked tenrec. From this animal’s Wiki entry:

    It is a small animal, with a long snout and limbs, and a vestigial tail. Pelage black with yellow longitudinal stripes dorsally, light beneath; scattered quills, some barbed and detachable.

    The head and body are 4.8-6.5 inches in length. The weight is about 7 ounces.

    Also: you people are hilarious.
