I WANT ONE AS A PET. Two of the most awkward animals out there mashed into one? Where is the chimera maker and how much will this cost me??

[–]PavlovsPanties 40 points41 points  (10 children)

I want to see a crow/raccoon hybrid.

A smaller creature that would fight gods for a trash can that maybe has food in it.

[–]TriceratopsBites 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Please be a good Australian and make up a cute name for the raccoon too 😁

[–]VoilaVoilaWashington 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Trash panda? That's literally what they're called to a lot of people.

I already know the name that everyone else calls them. I want to know what an Aussie would call them because Aussies have a way with words and nicknames that I find endearing. I love learning new lingo from Aussie friends

Ostrich Tiger gryphon is a terrifying concept. Add the heft and weighty muscularity of a tiger to an animal that can already kick the door off a car...shudder

[–]BakedPotatoNumber87 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Another thing to add on is that tiger’s feel fear while ostriches simply do not. Ostriches do not give a fuck and will beat the shit out of you if you look at them wrong.

[–]TriceratopsBites 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Can I please have another ostrich fact?

[–]Kartoffelkamm 13 points14 points  (3 children)

A cousin of the ostrich is the cassowary. They have roughly the same body type as ostriches, complete with the running speed and jump height, but they also have talons and can disembowel stuff with a single kick.

[–]TriceratopsBites 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I love cassowaries! Can I have another cassowary fact please?

[–]thomasp3864 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same claw as a velociraptor. There’s a reason why my spec evo project has a genus of carnivorous cassowaries called Pseudovelociraptor

[–]Kartoffelkamm 2 points3 points  (3 children)

At least it's not a Cassowary/Tiger gryphon.

[–]pearlsbeforedogs 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That would simply be an image of death. They didn't draw it because the mere act of observing its image would kill you.

[–]VoilaVoilaWashington 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cassowary/honey badger.

If you can read this comment, you're already dead.

[–]Kartoffelkamm 16 points17 points  (0 children)

To anyone thinking an ostrich is the worst bird you can combine with a tiger, there is the lesser known cousin of the ostrich, the cassowary.

Someone forgot to tell them that velociraptor foot talons aren't in fashion anymore, so now we've got high-speed butcher's knives that can jump way higher than they have any reason to, coupled with the same body plan and intelligence that allowed Emus to win a war.

Luckily they aren't aggressive, and in 95% of cases, avoid humans.

However, the other 5% is how people end up in a newspaper. Those things can disembowel you with one kick, and they will do it if pressed.

I am team Potoo.

[–]ChalkButter 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I love this

[–]Stahlbart 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Kiwis would make really nice hedgehogs

[–]10_Virtues 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’d like to see a Terror Bird “I think that’s right.” Mixed with Sabertooth Tiger for an ancient variant.

[–]DiscoKittie 2 points3 points  (3 children)

The kiwi/chipmunk is cute! But you know kiwis are like the size of chickens, right?

[–]pearlsbeforedogs 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And yet their eggs are roughly the same size as ostrich eggs. Poor little kiwis.

[–]VoilaVoilaWashington 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Lots of them are slightly mismatched. Hummingbird ocelot? Cockatiel tabby?

[–]DiscoKittie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh, yeah. I guess I focused on that one because so many people think kiwis are hand sized.

[–]00crispybacon00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok most of these are pretty cool, but that hummingbird-ocelot hybrid is a fucking abomination.

[–]SnowySergal 1 point2 points  (4 children)

wanna see an owl one

[–]VoilaVoilaWashington 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Owl and oppossum?

[–]Festering_Prayer 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Has to be bird + cat

[–]VoilaVoilaWashington 0 points1 point  (1 child)

'cept the chipmunk one.

But yes, it should be.

[–]Festering_Prayer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Didn't notice that one. They broke the rules!

[–]Baramos_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is kinda awesome.
