fabulous llama is fabulous!

because everyone’s monday would be improved by…a fabulous llama!

snow in the south…

we don’t get too much snow in south africa, at least not many areas outside of the highest mountains ranges.  but the past two days has seen unprecedented snowfall in places that haven’t seen snow in 30 years!  i am hoping to go snow-hunting tomorrow…

this bewildered chap was photographed at the johannesburg zoo yesterday, showing an expression shared by most everyone as flakes began to fall…

i love critters

i must apolgise for my recent disappearance from the world of the sometimes zoo.  this year is proving to be one of the most challenging yet (and yes, i am well aware it is only february!).

now anyone who visits this little blog regularly (and many thanks to those who do), will know of my love for all critters: feathered, scaley, squishy, furry, microscopic or monstrous.  so i thought what better way to return on a monday morning than with a collection of a few creatures…

elephant shrew

spanish moon moth

fruit bat

black bear

caterpillar

three-horned chameleon

amazing lego fox by artist david cole

paper fox project

anyone who checks in regularly with the sometimes zoo will know how much i adore foxes!  so imagine how enchanted i was when i came across the storybook project of sydney-based artist, jeremy kool.  i have got to get my hands on one of his prints!

the fox hat

love this painting by japanese illustrator, akitaka ito

apologies…with a fox

greetings everyone!  and firstly i must apologise for being possibly the worst blogger in the world.  i simply dropped off the radar and have neglected my posting something awful!  i have been moving house and you all know how crazy-silly the end of year gets.  so i thought i would return in true sometimeszoo style with one of my bestest-ever creatures….a fox!
