Editors’ Picks: Animals!

Feb 26, 2013

Snuggly, jungle wild, cutesy or slithering, there’s an animal for every style. We’ve collected a zoological cross-section of the Etsy marketplace, complete with giraffe rings, rabbit temporary tattoos, and pretend raccoon tails. (Though, truth be told, this list errs on the cat side of the spectrum — because, hey, cats are the Internet!)

And don’t worry: there will be a fantastical animal round-up for another day. Look forward to unicorns, jackalopes and Sasquatch!

    My brother owns a Chihuahua named "Bigs" that looks just like that little fella in the photo at the top.... I might just have to snag him up.
