We've got a 2-tone squirrel in our area - I don't recall ever seeing one like it before. Any idea about how common they are?

See photo here - http://www.pronetisp.net/~jkosta/2_Tone_Squirrel_cropped.jpg

Sorry I couldn't get a better picture ...

Hmmm... never seen one of these before, it almost looks like a bunny with a squirrel tail.

It might just be some kind of a hybrid, maybe someone else here might know?

Looks pretty squirrely to me.

And I don't think a squirrel-bunny hybrid is actually biologically possible.
I wasn't really suggesting a bunny could breed with a squirrel biologically, I merely said the picture looked like a bunny with a squirrel tail. Apologies if I wasn't being clear enough, as we all know this can happen very easily over the interwebs.

Right, moving on to some other type of animal now...

I've been wanting to clean out my little "Zen" pond in the back of the yard for a while now because the water is just filthy, however, this rather large frog keeps on preventing me from doing it. Anyone know what kind of frog this is and what her/his natural "living habit" is?

Probably a good thing squirrels and bunnies can't interbreed. Coz that would be too cute!

Are you a-livin' in a ghost town?

That's Madness! Or at least one of the specials. I guess it is caught up in the rat race. It won't be a major news story on my radio, more of a three minute hero.

I've got a message for you, Rudy: perhaps it can't stand up for falling down, or maybe it had too much too young.

I don't want you to feel too much pressure, but on the other hand don't do nothing.

If you decide to name it after a South African president, please don't keep it as a pet, or you will face calls to free Nelson Mandela.

Don't let him give you a 'line' about getting kissed !

Maybe just mention to him about his large and tasty looking legs ...

Well, here he is again, staring at me... he makes the funniest sound when he's out of the water and you walk up on him, he'll go "baah!", and then ploop, back into the water he jumps.

He seems to reside in the pond year-round, so that is why I haven't been able to clean it. I don't want to disturb his residence.

 
That was a 'rigged' decision today. I am by no means a horse race expert*, but I have seen way worse (especially on a sloppy track). Plus, the horse that was 'impeded' didn't win even after the relegation. The horse who was DQed was by far the best horse too. Somebody made a big payday.

*I've probably been to 20-25 horse races in my life (several at Churchill Downs...I was stationed at Ft. Knox KY just down the road), but I have watched the triple crown for 30ish years. At lesser events its often like bumper cars, or bumper horses I guess.

EDIT 2: One of the NBC experts said that it was the right call because "it nearly caused a disastrous situation". Nearly?! I hope that other sports don't use that standard: "nearly pass interference...", "nearly a foul..." "nearly icing...", "nearly a home run...".
 
Ridiculous decision, and yet another reason why I tend not to watch too many races from the US. Absolutely no chance that would have got overturned here in the UK. The best horse won the race, yet got DQ’d? Shambolic.
 
Hopefully your new roomie doesn't eat or poop too much, and as far as your other reference - we are still talking about the haunting resemblance between Froome and a praying mantis, right?

Don't remember who the original poster who mentioned this was though, I'm afraid.

Really humble, polite and very well mannered. You could barely notice it's there.
We came to an agreement to repatriate it to jardiniere in no time.
On our farewell I advised it to keep away from women, beware of sparrows, pigeons, even magpies and crows (obviously knows its ways through the bat land).
But I think women will come to its head, anyway.

Yes, we're talking about the resemblance... literally.
