Prowling our way into another #mammalcrushmonday , Siberion Tiger edition. This majestic beast is the largest cat on the block, and can weigh up to 660 Ibs (not the kind you want curled up on your lap wow). Siberion tigers have the classic striped look of other tigers, but fewer and lighter to help in their snowy homes! have undergone some serious habitat fragmentation due to human activity, and are listed as endangered- although this listing USED to be critically endangered, so let’s hope we can keep the positive trend going! 🐯🌍

This is it. We will never have a cuter #mammalcrushmonday (keep checking up on us just in case tho). The Mountain Cottontail is a species of rabbit confined to mountain ranges in Canada and the US. This cutie of a critter generally lives in solitude due to food sparsity, always thinking about its next meal (relatable). ALSO a concern is being eaten by basically everything bigger than itself. Make like a cottontail and hop on over to our account for more mammals to love!
Brought to you by #mammalcrushmonday is the Walrus! There are various species of walrus subdivided by which ocean they’re swimming in - Arctic, Atlantic & Pacific! These buck-toothed beauties are a keystone species of arctic marine environments, keeping mollusc levels in check. They are also traditionally very important to Arctic indigenous peoples that have utilized all aspects of the animal as a resource. More recent industrial movements hunted walrus for blubber, ivory and meat, sinking Arctic walrus populations which are currently on the mend! Stay frosty walrus friends! 🌎 ps. Happy Family Day from your pals at CQ 💚💙
We used a random number generator to choose our Dairy Queen raffle winners, and the winners are the 15th team to comment! Congrats Melanie Jordyn and Megan Vahabi!!!!
