Giant Hamster Roams the NY Subway!

(Photos by Victoria Belanger.)

Little Edie is riding a subway model made for the trial of a subway bomber. (Her owner is an evidence photographer from the Manhattan DA's office.)

(via Gothamist)

Elsewhere in the animal kingdom . . . a real, living ouroboros!

YAY first comment! These are definitely interesting pictures. But why make the 'subway' more to scale so that it looks more like the hamster is the size of a human, and not taller?

Oh dear. Snake suicide. D: There are faster, less gruesome ways than eating yourself, Reggie.

The evidence photographer should be careful where he puts his hamster. Adorable little devil could be planning a subway bombing of his own--they've furnished him with a hands-on planning model.

I have decided: the world is out to hurt me!!!!!! As i was innocently trying to sew a present for my younger cousin I was stabbed by a needle!!! and not the one that u poke through the fabric w/, the other one. I know: how awful! then, i tried using a thimble, and u know what happened? there was a HOLE in my thimble!!!!!! and i got poked AGAIN!!!!! so, i abandoned by thimble and was stoically striving for the greater good ( namely finishing the present)and the needle BROKE on me. AAAAAAAAAAAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! it is trying to hurt me.i must nurse my poor fingers now.

it's so obvious that the "subway" was a fake... like a hamster toy... like the race track toy i got for my hamster... until he died :(
