The Utonagan is a breed of dog that resembles a wolf, but in fact is a mix of three breeds of domestic dog: Alaskan Malamute, German Shepherd, and Siberian Husky.
I WANT ONE
ME TOO OMG
I just really need this animal. Need. Not want.
Look at this majestic son of a dog.
People keep asking me what it’s like to be a newly discovered monkey and stuff.
It’s okay I guess.
I mean, it’s not like I was hiding or anything. I discovered myself a long time ago.
I was just sitting on this branch chewing on a stick and some sciency guy comes up to me all excited. He’s like, “YOU’RE A NEW MONKEY” and I’m like, “Naw, man… I’m like 8 years old.” Then he’s like, “I need to see your butt!”
I tried to tell him I wasn’t really comfortable with that. But he was all like, “It’s for science!”
That was a bit of a personal dilemma for me. I don’t want to hold back science… science is important. That’s how we got space ships and velcro. What if my butt is the key to unlocking the cure for restless leg syndrome or some shit? I don’t want to live my life wondering if my prudish upbringing prevented some poor kid from getting rid of his wonky legs at sleepy time.
So I was like, “Alright, man… I’ll show you the goods, but I don’t want to see this on the internet.”
I just needed this here.
“The butterfly is an extremely rare half-male, half-female bilateral Gynandromorph, which means that it appears to be male on one side but female on the other, according to the Guardian. Dual-sex animals are a rare occurrence in nature, but it’s especially rare for such a creature to be so uniformly bilateral. This butterflyappears perfectly split down the middle, with smoky black colors on its male side, but with visible flecks of blue, red and tortoiseshell on its female side. It also has one antenna longer than the other, a single male clasp on its abdomen, and its genitalia are also cut half and half — the male and female reproductive organs are fused right down the middle.”

Is it eating the penguin??
Most likely. Killer whales and leopard seals eat them.
Wait… did those other penguins push him? They look nonplussed! Is this some type of secret penguin ritual sacrifice!?!? MY WHOLE BRAIN IS CRYING!!!
