'Phisiologus dicit quod herinatius figuram habet porcelli lactentis. Hic deforis totus est spinosus. Sed tempore vindemiarum ingreditur in vineam, et ubi viderit uvam bonam, ascendit super vitem et exacinat uvam illam, ita ut cadant omnes racemi in terram. Deinde descendit et volutat se super illos ita ut omnes racemi figantur in spinis eius, et sic portat escam filiis suis.' -- By Obrazki nunu & Discarding Images (previously), based on this medieval bestiary.

Since the pullquote doesn't say it in English - this is a cute stopmotion animation in Latin with English subtitles.

There is one moment that is, unexpectedly, anything but cute and I'm not going to tell you which to make you watch and you can thank me later.

hat_eater, I watched the whole thing and I didn't see something that was "anything but cute." Are you talking about the credits?

The bestiary illustrator obviously had absolutely no idea what grape vines look like.

Hedgehogs. Why can't they just share the hedge?

Discarding Images yay! Thanks for posting and I too saw nothing that wasn't cute and am confused, hat_eater.

That was the best. I can now go to sleep happy.

The credits were cute! But at the 1:07 mark, the take of the hedgeden with the hedgepiglets squirming aimlessly inside... well it was definitely not my idea of cute.
