-There’s nothing to cheer up a dreary Hump Day like a sickeningly cute story about a hamster and a snake who are BFF in Tokyo, where animal life evidently unfolds according to the tenets of a Disney movie.

-In less heartwarming news, we may have learned nothing from SARS and the bird flu could do us all in, despite a pledge of almost 2 billion dollars.
–$12,500 worth of racist animal-shaped candies to be destroyed in Quebec.
-What would Hump Day be without some good camel coverage? Sadly, the camel population of Rajasthan appears to be dwindling.

-And would your morning really be complete without video footage of some moose being airlifted to Colorado?
