First came the delightful Dirds (Dog-birds), followed by the marvelous Meowls (Cat-owls), today the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids introduces us to another spectacularly surreal creature: Bears with Beaks.

From the Angry Eagoala and Panda Bearrot to the Sad Beargle and the Hungy Pelibear, these beaky bears are the product of the collective imagination and photoshop skills of a two-year-old subreddit called… wait for it… BearsWithBeaks. Thanksgiving just got a whole lot more interesting now that we know about the Wild Bearky.

Head over to BearsWithBeaks for many more examples of this hilarious, yet strangely touching hybrid species. Just don’t leave your fingers where they can nip them.

Oh Japan, you’ve done it again. Perhaps the only thing better than eating yummy slices of toast is eating toast shaped like an adorable teddy bear that cheerfully sits up to greet you right before you devour it.

Called the Ernest Bread Pop Up!, this delightful product is the work of Japanese company Tokyu Hands. It even comes with three interchangable facial expressions so you can customize your scrummy toast bear before you send him to your belly.

Check out these awesomely cute and sleepy pieces of topiary in the Jardin des Plantes de Nantes, a botanical garden located in Nantes, France. Created by French artist and children’s book author Claude Ponti, they’re part of the “Journey to Nantes" (Le Voyage à Nantes) art festival. These delightful topiary sculptures are just one stop on the festival’s 10-mile-long trail of public artwork on display throughout Nantes.

Photos by Molaire & Tentacules, Les petits nantais, Jean-Sebastian Evrard and Big City Life Nantes respectively. (The sleepy bird in the bottom image is from the 2013 festival.)

Before today it had never occurred to us that birds and bananas are at all similar. Now that we’ve seen this wonderfully weird and ridiculously cute series of parrot-banana hybrid Epoch Gashapon toys, we’re dying to see how other fruit and fauna pair up.

According to RocketNews24, these banana birdies are selling so well that the manufacturer has plans for a whole series of “parrot-foodstuff mash-ups.” The parrot-mushroom hybrids seen in the bottom image are coming out next.

The parrot-banana series actually includes a number of birds from the parrot family from little cockatoos to the splashy Macau.

Most guinea pigs spend their days simply being impossibly cute and eating as many vegetables and as much hay as they possibly can. Pulguinha the Steampunk Guinea Pig does all of those things while wearing an awesome pair of brass and leather wings. We hope she sometimes gets to hang out with a guinea pig wearing scale-mail armor as well.

Pulguinha’s fantastic harness was created by Silvia Ferreira’s SkyPirate Creations, Porto, Portugal-based makers of alternative clothing, leather and other crafts.

To see more of Pulguinha and the work of SkyPirate Creations, visit their Facebook page. Many of their Steampunk wares are available for purchase via Rebels Market, Storenvy and Etsy.

Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders was delighted to learn about the work of Buckinghamshire, England-based illustrator Chloe Giordano, who uses freehand embroidery to create incredibly small, yet finely detailed depictions of animals.

The final works of a sleeping fawn or mouse are scarcely larger than the size of a thimble, yet can take long periods of time to complete as she mixes myriad thread colors to achieve perfection for each piece.

In addition to wonderfully wee embroidered pieces like those pictured here, Giordano also creates 3D sculptures. You can keep up with all of Chloe Giordano’s artwork right here on Tumblr at karenin. She’s currently available for comission-based work as well.

Dutch artist Femke Hiemstra (previously featured here) has a new exhibition of her wonderful paintings, featuring anthropomorphized animals and objects, opening at the Roq la Rue Gallery in Seattle on Thursday August 7, 2014.

"The new works include painted and drawn stories about hypnotic wild boars, addicted ducks and Krampus on a weekday, just to name a few."

The awesome painting seen here is entitled Pooch Patrol and depicts two Scottie soldiers making the rounds inside weathered boots. It will also be part of the show, so if you’re in Seattle, this is clearly an event not to be missed.

The show runs through September 27, 2014 and also features the fantastic work of New York-based artist and illustrator Casey Weldon (previously featured here).

California-based artist Isaac Goodhart created this awesomely heartwarming pop culture mashup illustration that combines Shel Silverstein’s classic story The Giving Tree with Marvel Comics' Guardians of the Galaxy.
“The Giving Groot" replaces the selfless apple tree with Groot and the boy she loved with Rocket Raccoon and we desperately wish it was a real book.
