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.
Those of us who have dogs or cats know that cutting our pets' hair is much more challenging than cutting humans' hair. Not only do cats and dogs have hair all over their bodies, their hair is also very thick, so any trimmers designed for human hair will quickly get blunt and go out of order. Grooming one's pet takes a lot of time and skills , so many owners turn to professionals for this task. Today we'll imagine if these "professionals" could be animals too.
Photoshop animals as both groomers/hairdressers and customers. You can use different kinds of animals (except humans) for groomers and customers, even those without hair (in this case please add at least a patch of hair on the customer's head). Many thanks to Sunshine for the themepost.
