Here’s an Otocolobus manulnature’s Grumpy Cat — discovering a camera trap outside it’s den. Camera traps are used by biologists to lean about rare animals’ behavior, abundance, and health — just by setting up a solar-powered camera with a motion trigger. No physical trapping necessary.

O. manul (also known as Pallas’s cat) is about the size of a house cat, but you’ll notice has round pupils instead of slits. It lives in western China and the steppes of Central Asia.

You’d think that Pallas’s cat would rule the internet by now - but there aren’t too many photos of them because they are both rare and shy. The IUCN lists them as near-threatened. Just another reason to support species conservation!

Imagine the Simpsons, Mortal Kombat, McDonald’s, Mega Man, and Seinfeld as an old Taito game ⊟
You’d get something close to this set of adorable sprites by pixel master Paul Robertson (Mercenary Kings, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game). Robertson explains, “Bubble Bobble was the first game I ever played in the arcades and it pretty much decided what my career was going to be. So I thought I’d try out some Taito inspired characters. There’s 100 all up.” That Mayor McCheese tho.
