It's said that animals can enjoy life more than humans because they never have to stop and answer the phone. The company called Petsmobility attempted to change that. In 2005 they developed the world's first cell phone for dogs - Petcell, attached to a dog's collar. You could easily call your dog (the call would be automatically answered) and give commands to your pet, or simply talk to it so that your dog does not feel alone. If the dog would bark (possible sign of danger - e.g. house or car burglary) a call to your number would initiate and you could hear what's happening and give your dog commands. It was a very handy thing to have for those dog owners who have to leave dogs on their own when they are at work or away for some other reason. The Petcell price was on the expensive side - about $400, and after 7 years of operations and $120 mln of investor capital, Petsmobility closed its doors in 2012, citing slow sales. Well, it was good while it lasted...
Photoshop animals using cell phones.
All types of animals (except humans) are allowed - e.g. birds,
insects, aquatic life, mammals, etc.

Did you ever wonder why there are no insects or spiders sized as big animals? The answer lies in their respiratory system and hemolymph (blood). In humans and other animals, body cells get oxygen through blood cells that capture oxygen from the lungs. Insects' blood (hemolymph) does not carry oxygen, and body cells get it directly from the air that is supplied by the complex system of little hollow tubes (called tracheas or windpipes). Since insects don't have lungs but only "passive" tracheas, such primitive "ventilation" system can only stay effective as the length of tracheas is short enough, otherwise the "deep down" cells will not be ventilated enough and will die of oxygen starvation. That is why those scary old Japanese movies with huge insects (gigantic moth shooting thunderbolts from its eyes, etc) fighting giant animals are physically impossible in real life.
If insects had some features of animals (lungs, etc.) huge size would not a a problem for them. So today, let's combine any insect(s) with any animal(s) any way you wish. (For the sake of this contest we'll consider spiders as insects, though formally belong to separate order Araneae).

The modern theory of evolution says that humans descended from animals - our ancestors were fishes, reptiles, and finally monkeys. From biology schoolbooks, we all remember the images of human embryo development and how at different stages the human embryo looks very similar to the embryos of different animals. Surprisingly, in our early stages, we look closest to rabbits. That may explain some human mating habits too.
Photoshop any animals with mouths, eyes, or noses changed for those of celebrities, similar to how it's done in the themepost (credit to macwithfries). Please list celebrities you are using either in the titles or creator's comments. Note that mixing black people and monkeys is against the FN rules.
Did you know that this spring NASA's cargo spaceship (SpaceX CRS-6) delivered 20 mice to the International Space Station? These mice are studied for the effects of gravity absence on mammals - such as muscle and bone loss, as well as tendon mass loss. Sure, astronauts experience the same gravity absence and they are studied too, but the lifespan of mice is much shorter thus the long term effects can be seen faster. Yet mice and rats share about 96% of their DNA with humans, so they make perfect lab subjects (thus the expression "lab rat").
Photoshop anything related to space exploration by animals. E.g. show how space exploration history would be different if animals explored space instead of humans, photoshop animal astronauts, etc. All animals - living, extinct, or even mythical are accepted for this contest (except for humans)!

Google Street uses panoramic technology to make photos. Unfortunately this technology does not work well on moving objects, often creating freaks like this half cat.
Create half animals by reducing their length and number of legs, similar to the themepost by lucianomorelli.
