    The things he’s done to raccoons! *shivers*

    Hehe, practicing for squee is an awesome job to have.

      Alt Text: “This is not the worst thing Karishad’s been up to, such as hiring that contractor to chrome plate everything in the coon enclosure so they were surrounded by sparklies only to end up giving them all nervous breakdowns”

      • gaboris

        I thought that fox’s problem was that he couldn’t forget aboot technology, but I may be wrong. :D
        So did he have aby point in chromeing everything or was it just a “gag”? XD

  2. GameCobra

    Why do i suddenly feel like the Kangaroo with the g reen eyes is Rick Griffin?

    It mightbe the scarf >.>

    • theblackcateyes

      O like that kangaroo!!!!!

    • RegularBird

      I think it’s just the scarf, but the eyes DO stand out though.

    • Foxstar

      Rick’s a furret, not a roo though.

      • Frank

        I thought he was a chinchilla-like thing unrelated to Pokémon?

        • madmoney

          no on other comics he is a furret
          look on devent art

        • Rick Griffin

          The avatar I use for comments and the forums is different but people link me between them anyway

          • theblackcateyes

            Hey!!! Look, is Rick Griffin!!!!!

    • Salenstormwing

      Ah, the Kangaroos Quota is getting filled! Woot! *happy dance*

  3. KzT

    Returning to the Zoo! But in Color!


    • Argent Stonecutter

      The only thing that could have been more awesome than the zoo being back, would be the zoo being back during the great snowstorm. Kangaroos being rescued by snow leopards. Otters tobogganing and wondering what the fuss was about. Crazy foxes with wacky schemes. Bears sleeping through it all.

  4. theblackcateyes

    Ohh i forgot the zoo
    not now sure…

    • Frank

      And that’s what makes it even more awesome!

      • netherwolf

        Yeah,the zoo is back!

      • theblackcateyes

        I know!!!!

  5. IceKitsune

    lol I really would like to see more of the zoo characters.

    • theblackcateyes

      Me too, only the kangaros and the weird fox, they are so cools … and WEIRD!!!

    • Frank

      You know who’s missing? Shardul!

      …not that I can think of a way she would actually add to the joke

      • theblackcateyes


  6. lol party

    lol alligator clips

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Alligator Clips – you’re doing it wrong!

      • madmoney

        i thought he was going to tazz-n-grill

        • netherwolf

          crocoburgers xD

          • Espemon333

            Gaah. The puns are killing me!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            just accept the pun-ishment.

          • anon_omis

            can you say “rimshot”?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent
        • Espemon333

          Stop! I’m deathly allergic to wordplay!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            if you go into cardiac arrest, we can just use an epi-pun to restart your heart.

  7. Dissension

    Oh, Karishad, what potentially dangerous pun won’t you attempt?

  8. lightwolf21

    Oh, Karishad… X3 You and your wordplay. lol

  9. Tomfox

    Always the Foxes. Can’t turn your back on em, they’re full of mischief!

  10. Valerio

    Leave it to beaver…heh.

    • anon_omis

      I saw what you did there

  11. Ryufire

    If you want to keep your head Karishad don’t even try it! 0.o

    Ah nothing like Penguins of Madagascar scenario! Beaver is just like Skipper in this one :D

  12. theblackcateyes

    OH is true!!!

  13. leafy

    Ah yes… laying back is good practice too :D

    • huntersunday

      yes and popping your back on your friends makes it even better

  14. MKarrow

    Squeeeeee!!!!! Kangaroos :D

    Oh man, didn’t expect to see Karishad again. He’s just that much more awesome in color ;P

  15. Profesor Rod

    Sqeeeeee!!! Adorable pile of otters! 83333 <3

    • Dissension

      The otters are okay, but I really prefer that dashing fox and the kangaroos. x3

    • RegularBird

      How about both in the same scene?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Must… rub… fuzzy… tummy.

    • Salenstormwing

      You have to work to be that lazy. Mrrrr, snuggly lazy otters.

    • netherwolf

      they’r all adorable,even tha alligator is kinda cute.

  16. CalaverX11

    Racoons can only handle so much shiny.

    • Chip Uni

      But it was a HAPPY nervous breakdown!

  17. Shiranai

    Why are beavers labeled as the leader type?
    I mean sure they construct dams but is that the reason why beavers are the ones planning / organizing things?
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I just want to know why.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      You pretty much answerd your own question there, It’s characterisation you see.
      like raccoons being cast as sneaky thieves with a face mask
      (much like sly cooper)

      • Rocket Knight boy

        That or mister Griffin just randomly felt the need to make a beaver leader

  18. Firewolf

    LOL! We want more Roos in housepets XD

    • Firewolf

      oops, avatar fail..

  19. Dakaggo

    Gotta love the alligator clips the fox is attempting to use.

  20. Zen

    oh wait yeah thats a gator

  21. Argent Stonecutter

    “Little did Karishad know, it was actually a crocodile.”

    • Akinokaze

      Lucky for him they are crocodile clips ^_^

      • madmoney

        epic fail
        on foxs part
        foul for tying to help cute fox out of situation

  22. Lupus

    I want a zoo arc now >.>

  23. FurryNerd

    What IS he doing with those ‘gater clips?

    • Chip Uni

      Jump-start the alligator, of course.

      • anon_omis

        Well he is cold blooded XD

    • Valerio

      besides than thinking about his new hand prosthetics?

  24. Zearfox

    Oh, very punny Karishad, XD

  25. WingedWolfGirl

    Cute fox.
    Hope the croc doesn’t eat him.

    • netherwolf

      Only if the croc can survive the unexpected shock that the fox is planning

  26. overzen

    Yay! I like angry beavers! :D

  27. The Moon Howler

    rofl! Beaver bosses all the Zoo

    • netherwolf

      No wonder they work all day O.o

  28. madmoney

    carry on doing nothing

  29. Snowmon

    He makes a great example of a busy beaver. Three of my family members are the same way. (but that can be said about the rest of the zoo too.)

  30. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Alligators/Crocs out in the open in the middle of winter. :/

  31. Corodan

    The San Diego Zoo should be more like this. The tigers are threatening the obnoxious kid, someone’s having an intellectual conversation with our tortoises while the raccoon reaches for his wallet, etc.

    Would be a lot more fun.

    • KickahaOta

      Not to mention the interspecies Scrabble tournaments.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        “That’s not how you spell ‘cheap’”
        “It is when you’re a sparrow!”

  32. Naylorfan90

    Hehe, cute otters.

  33. Rocket Knight boy

    Well good to see the zoo animals again, maybe we could see a one off featuring rex? where has he been lol


    upon realisation of the pun in the second panel i respond accordingly

    (Begins to clap slowly)

    • anon_omis

      Who is Rex?

      • natranr

        He’s that Bulldog that looks like the one from Tom and Jerry. he likes to sing Xmas carols and bake cookies.

        • anon_omis

          Thanks! Now I remember!

  34. Deezy

    yay cute little otters!

  35. nukedude51

    this strip made me rofl


    A fox? in Housepets? Mind blown.

    • Teh Kitsune

      Well, some people DO keep foxes as pets

      • Rick Griffin

        . . . what do you think you’re doing using that for an avatar?

        • Frank

          …Being cute? Or a suck-up?

        • Teh Kitsune

          Meh you know, sorry Rick. I thought it would be funny you know? :3 But i see that you’re mad, so can I use this one? :D

          • Teh Kitsune

            Ummm wow…. gravatar fail… And ruined the nice sorry mood :/

            Anyway, can I use this one?

          • Rick Griffin

            I guess, though it bugs me to consider where you got stupid old pictures of mine

          • Teh Kitsune

            Twas just searching around on some random forums and someone posted it there with some of your other pictures.

            (P.S. This gravatar is also one of your old dragon pictures ;D)

          • Rick Griffin

            Yes, I know it is, because I drew it

          • Clairvoyant Legacy

            … *sigh*

      • JackDesert

        what in the world is that?
        some tribal clone of Rick’s critter?

  37. phantomBr

    LOL The alligator’s face is hilarious.
    I wonder what he’s going to do about that fox!!!

  38. darkgloomie

    Sleepy ottsel ftw!

    • Argent Stonecutter


      • anon_omis

        Isn’t that what Daxter is?

        • Argent Stonecutter


          • anon_omis

            Character from the game “Jak and Daxter”

        • Jennifer the Dark

          I thought Daxter was just some random furry thing :/

          • Dissension

            Let’s not talk about something completely unrelated to the comic.

    • Foxstar

      Those are just otters.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Fuzzy fuzzy otters.

      • darkgloomie

        darnit, sorry. Mind blown over a Jak&Daxter fanfic xD

        totally my bad.

        • darkgloomie

          btw anybody can tell me which one is Gambit and which Tarmac? I don’t think it’s ever been made clear…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            doesn’t really matter until they appear separately.

  39. Helth

    Is it me, or is this the first time we see a reptile?…other then the dragon.

  40. silverfang16

    And just think, only 40 exhibits to go! ^_^

  41. netherwolf

    What vacation time,all they have to do is stand in their cages and look adorable..I don’t think that that is hard,but maby it’s frustrating..after all,they’r being watched and squealed all day long.


  42. Tahoe

    Yup…. That’s Kari, lol.

  43. The Wolf Kin

    Oh how I do so love otters.

  44. anon_omis

    Can someone link me to other strips with the fox plz?

  45. natranr

    So next One-Off with King please?

    last time we saw him, he was being hugged to death.

  46. FerreTrip

    Karishard, I don’t think agitating an alligator is an amazing idea…

    I think the joke here might be how whenever you’re at the zoo, the animals are all bored and sleeping. X3;

  47. T-Squared


    Alligator clips. XD

  48. Oren Otter

    By the way, this zoo needs anteaters.
    Everything is better with anteaters.

  49. Argent Stonecutter
  50. Jennifer the Dark

    D’waaa! I love that fox~! Please tell me he’ll be mentioned later on-♫

  51. Firewolf

    Alt Text= OH MY GOSH LOL!

  52. CaptainPea

    everything is chrome in the future

    • natranr

      Chrome paint, just spray it on.

  53. anon_omis

    I’ve been asking that question all my life

  54. Authur


  55. Cruzor

    I didn’t know that the “Zoo’s” visitor season opened in March…I guess that the vistior will be wearing jackets still while squealing and gawking at the Zoo Animals…nothing like seeing people slightly chilled while making that “Aw they’re so cute” face…Careful folks your face might be lock in that face for awhile…cts (chuckles to self)…I guess my avatar would know first hand about the zoo-goers’ faces (being that it is a Bobcat/Wildcat)…Though I would have to drive about 2-51/2 hours to visit the nearest zoo…Besides I always did wonder how the Zoo Animals prepared for the Visitor/Busy season…

  56. KikuOtter

    Just made an account to say “SQUEEE!!! OTTERS!! ^_^”

    • Argent Stonecutter

      _FUZZY_ otters…

      • MKarrow

        Indeed. The fuzziness factor of the otter is sufficient enough to comment on when referring to said species.

  57. Jennifer the Dark

    *looks over all the comments* Nobody’s made the joke yet…
    That fox should really do a barrel roll.

    • MKarrow

      Gahhh should’ve seen that coming a mile away. Congratulations.

      • Silent Kitsune

        *Claps for you*

  58. Shady Kitsune

    Oh that Karishad, so kray-zeh! :P

  59. Hoheh

    Being cute. They’re doing it right.

  60. Foxye


  61. microbuss

    hehe animals do get lazy at zoos sometimes XD & if that beaver met a platypus he’d say ” You’re not related to me!” LOL

  62. gaboris

    (How I hate retyping everything. >.<") YAAAY finally I can see the page! I needed this after this night, thx Rick. :D
    Sooo mr. beaver here is a kind of leader or coach for the zoo? XD
    BTW WHAT on earth is Karishad doing? Electrocute the gator or use him as a battery? It's not the same thing. X)

  63. Z-Zman

    I always wished that Karishad was used more in these comics.

  64. Kurra

    Awwww, Karishad cameo, yay for him! *clapclap* 8>

  65. natranr

    I’m hoping for either one more one-off with King. or a new arc featuring the Zoo.

    Or Both.

    • Z-Zman

      i second that

  66. Medli

    Shocking green eyes, and no one thought of Tarot and the spirit dragon? ö.ö

    • Dissension

      There are lots of characters with green eyes that nobody associates with Tarot or the Spirit Dragon. Bino, for example.

  67. Z24

    Why the fox is connecting a battery to the croc? XD

    • Dissension

      Fer kicks!

    • Espemon333

      They’re Alligator Clips.

      • Z24

        Hardy Har

  68. Eskabar

    Wow, Rick’s gotten much better at drawing! The anatomical detail is impressive for a comic updated this often.

  69. Russiarules1

    I completely forgot about the animals at the zoo. There is maybe a new zoo arc coming soon, who knows? Only time can tell.

  70. LogicFox13

    the kangoroo looks like tarot tehd ragon wasnt it or sabrina one of those the green eys kinda shows that

  71. Argent Stonecutter
  72. Hoheh

    Somebody is trying to prank the wrong sharp-toothed reptile…

  73. kyle

    yeah nice
