Where there are no people

Animal Land where there are no people was a children's book released in 1897, written by Sybil Corbet, who was four years old, and illustrated by her mother, Katharine Corbet. "Animal Land where there are no People is quite near, only you can't see it... They live by the North Pole and in the leafy places near. It is always light there, always day, they climb the poles and always play." [more inside]

Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

Maybe hamsters & hippos are better suited for your weight class-- don't worry, Super Duck Punch will allow to test your pugilistic skills against these combinations and more! Watch out for the giraffe-headed Hydra, though. Almost as tough as the Hydra-headed giraffe.

Won't someone think of the animals.

Gregory Colbert's Ashes and Snow has been linked to twice before on Metafilter. However, you can now view 10 minutes of his film as part of his Ted Talk--it's the most stunning nature footage I've ever seen. In the talk he also mentions a new concept he's developing called Animal Copyright, which I think is long overdue.

Aberdeen Bestiary Project

The Aberdeen Bestiary Project, beautiful scans of medieval art, and translations of the Latin translations of the Physiologus, a story-book of sorts, or an encyclopedia of nature.
