Well, I could use your idea of some funny animals as I'm writing a novel.

Monkeys, ducks, parrots, hampsters, chickens, turtles... I don't know why, but they strike me as funny animals. If anyone willing to contribute to my list that would great.

I think any baby animals are funny!

Have a look at this, Logwood, it might inspire you: http://www.cuteoverload.com/

Edit: oh, and flamingos, if course

I think porcupines are cute.

EDIT: Gotta add though, they don't smell very nice.

I'm looking for the name of a parrot-like bird with a large beak, anyone got a clue?

Sorry, I was confusing the Spanish with the English (actually French) spelling.

If you want cute, try a Sugar Glider. Petaurus breviceps is a small 'gliding' possum. This is the kind of pet which is only awake during the first hour of so after you get home from work. They sleep the rest of the day.

If you want funny try ferrets. They get into exceptionally small places and hide [or get stuck] all the time. Actually just weasels with a nicer name. Oh, maybe I am thinking of ferret owners?
