From the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids come Octopussy and Seahorse 2, two more wonderfully weird and tentacular paintings created by San Francisco-based artist Robert Bowen (previously featured here).
Both are currently available here as signed, limited edition prints.
It’s Tentacle Day on Geyser of Awesome!
Their extra eyes play tricks with our own eyes. We know it doesn’t stand to reason, but it seems like these kitties would have equally unusual meows to go with the extra pairs of eyes. Perhaps a second meow that begins right after the first one starts, so they’re just slightly out of sync.
These particular four-eyed kitty cats are currently on display at the Trifecta Gallery in Las Vegas, but only for one more week.
Redditor jaaba232 typed “Majestic Creatures” into Google’s image search and found this awesome hybrid of a tuxedo cat and an orca. The orca cat looks like a formidable predator.
Redditor metellius just started learning how to use Photoshop. They’ve used their new photo manipulation skillz to show us what an awesome creature you’d get if you crossed a pigeon with a horse. But what would you call it?

From the Department of Awesome Hybrid Animals comes the work of French artist Julien Salaud, who has made a name for himself by carefully combining parts of different animals to create taxidermic hybrids like the awesome Feathered Piranha, or Vieux Piraï Emplumé, seen here.
As awesome as the spectacle would be, let’s be thankful that piranha-birds don’t actually exist. Agressive, chompy fish flying through the air sound even scarier than killer bees.
It’s time for another visit to the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids: Redditor ATa10rightNOW discovered that this wonderful image is what you get when you search for “Seal Pup” via Google. Redditor coydog33 then chimed in to say that this “seal pup” was created by TheGoodLordAbove. It’s a photoshop miracle and it still needs a name. What would you name it?
We were delighted to discover that artist, illustrator, and all around awesome creative sort, Jeremy Fish has been pushing the boundaries of Cryptozoology with a new series of legendary creatures (soon to become screen prints). We keep trying to pick a favourite, but they’re all pretty great.
