Please don't hurt me.
The Greater Galago, also known as the thick-tailed greater bush baby, is known for its thick fur, bushy tail, large ears, wide snout and remarkable jumping abilities.

It lives in woodland, forested savannah, plantations and bamboo thickets across Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and South Africa.

This nocturnal animal mostly feeds on tree exudates and fruit, but it also eats a small amount of animal prey including invertebrates, small birds, reptiles and mammals.

The Greater Galago tends to live in a small group and communicate both by calling to others and by marking its path with urine. Females maintain their territory and share them with their offspring. Males leave their mothers' territories after puberty but females remain, forming social groups consisting of closely related females and their young.

Like its celebrity look-a-like, the Greater Galago's large eyes and ears make it that much more adorable.

Can we hug? I feel like we should hug.
The American Badger, also known as the Taxidea Taxus, might be a well known mammal but it’s still exotic. It has a flat body with short legs and a triangular shaped face. Its body is covered with long hair in shades of black brown white and grey. Its face has a very distinctive pattern. It is black with white strips on the cheeks and a long white strip from the back of its head to the nose.

Aside from looking adorable, these mammals are built to dig. They move dirt faster than any other mammal, including a human with a shovel. They dig in pursuit of prey and then expand tunnels into sleeping burrows. They use these burrows and dens for hunting, sleeping, storing food and giving birth.

American badgers prefer dry, open country, and avoid forests and areas with rocky soil. Primarily found in the great plains of North America. They are the least social of the badger species, preferring a solitary existence.

They feed primarily on small rodents such as squirrels, pocket gophers, kangaroo rats, prairie dogs and mice. Yum. When the rodent population is low, they will also eat scorpions, insects, snakes, lizards and birds. Even yummier. 

Like their celebrity look-a-likes, American Badgers are easy to spot due to their thick expensive fur coats.

I'm not a horse or a zebra dammit!
The Zorse is a cross between a zebra stallion and a horse mare. The zorse takes the color or dominant color gene of the mare and the zebra sire's stripes. While it is possible for this unique breeding match to happen in the wild, most of the time zorses are bred in zoo's or animal institutes. 

While their stripes might make them look different than a horse, they can still be trained to do the same things from trail riding to competing in shows. However, they scare easily and tend to run away from perceived danger more abruptly than a horse. They are also more defensive when they feel stressed or threatened. 

They are known to have almost 360 degree vision with the exception of a blind spot in front of their nose and directly behind them. The zorse's large pricked ears give it incredible hearing. 

Like their celebrity look-a-like, they have long noses and large nostrils that give them a keen sense of smell.

Can I have a haircut now, please?
The Komondor, also known as the giant mop dog, is known for its unusually dense, protective coat of heavy white cords. The breed was developed in Hungary to guard large herds of sheep and cattle on the plains. So their thick white coat helps them blend in with their flock and protects them from weather extremes. 

The coat of a puppy is relatively soft, but shows signs of corded-like curls. It can take up to two years for the cords to form completely and five years to reach the desired length.

The Komondor is characterized by its imposing strength, dignity, courageous demeanor and pleasing conformation. It is generally reserved and serious with strangers but demonstrative with those he loves and will defend them against any attack.

Their gait is light, leisurely and balanced. They take long strides and are very agile and light on their feet. Owners should be willing to provide daily exercise, obedience training and lots of grooming.

Like its celebrity look-a-like, the Komondor’s coat takes quite a bit of care and time to look presentable.
