I'll Be Your Teddy Bear

Hey bebeh,
I know you think my green wings are handsome. I know you're thinking I'm exotic and unique and you wish I could be by your side always. Did you know know I'm also all snuggly wuggly underneath? Check out my cute pink legs and fuzzy fluffy body. Sure the Lunesta might help you sleep but I'll keep you warm at night. Wanna snuggle?

Click the pics for a closer look.

Accomplishments in Gastropoda

These are a couple of my aquarium occupants. They are a happy family and very supportive of each others endeavors. Here, Sprinkle the Mystery Snail, climbs the fake fern for the first time. Swimmy the beta cheers him/her on. I'm not sure what was up Sam's butt that day.

eta: The kids named the fish and snail.

So Happy to Meet U

Though the cuteness of my previous posts may have been debatable you can't deny the adorable in the following pictures.
Cindy from Bug Safari sent me these shots of a smiling katydid. Well.. I suppose since I forgot to put my contact info in the blog she didn't technically send the me the pics but she did give me permission to post them. Seriously.. This bug is SMILING! Enjoy!

Thanks Cindy!

I had the chance to get a similar photo yesterday when a katydid travelled up our kitchen window. He was not in the mood to be photographed however and refused to pause for a good shot.

I have some crazy bugs living around and sometimes in my house. I have plenty of homegrown material for Adorabugs.
I frequently see these nutty millipedes crossing my driveway on their way from one patch of woods to the next. Why they cross, I just can't say.

Notice the cute head tilt as he politely asks for a sip of coffee. So sweet.

Now I've seen this all over the internet and in other blogs but I felt it had a home here. Though.. I'm not sure it's a bug. I really don't know what the frick it is but it sure is cute! However... if you're not lazy like me you can read up on it here at the National Geographic site!

Blair Stick Project

I took this one myself. What's lacking in cute he/she more than makes up for in pose!

For comparison...


This one is almost to hot for the blog but I'll post anyways.
Warning: For imago audiences only.

Why Adorabugs?

We all know that kittens, puppies and tiny tortoises draw the crowds. The enormous success of blogs such as Cute Overload and Kitten Wars have proven that people can't get enough of the cute. However, I feel one phylum of animalia have been sadly overlooked; Arthropoda. Though many loath these multi-legged creatures I suspect it's simply because they have never gotten close enough to see the true potential for cuteness. I hope to change that perception with this blog. Think of the cute bumble bee who couldn't be separated from your Coke. How about Jiminy Cricket? Even Cute Overload has posted an occasional cute insect. Remember the overreaching snail? “Ehn....” Alright, maybe snails aren't insects but I still think of them as bugs cause I can't help it. What about the baseball lovin' mantis?
I encourage all bug lovers to send me your bug pics and videos. Help me help adorabugs everywhere gain the respect they deserve as cutie pies!
