Endangered species condoms

No, not condoms for endangered species – that wouldn’t exactly help their problem. These are condoms with endangered species on them.

Who would be behind such a crazy project? Biologists, of course! The Center for Biological Diversity are passing out these condoms to raise awareness about overpopulation and its effect on the environment.

…Ok, I seriously want these things. There are six to collect: a burying beetle, polar bear, snail darter, spotted owl, jaguar and rock frog. Must…collect…nerdy condoms…

    You should try and resize the image (just enter the maximum width in the image code). Otherwise, people, just copy its source and view it in new tab/window.

    But, I do wonder what the condom itself would look like. Not necessarily that I’d want one …

    Interesting rhyme of Tweedle with Beetle (come to think of it, interesting use of the word Tweedle). Do Americans really pronounce Beetle as "Beedle"?

    Ironic really, because contraception is the last thing these species need . . .

    well, you could always volunteer to be a distributor if you really want them.

    Yes. In most American dialects the hard "d" and hard "t" are identical. So "condom" would sound similar to "contom". Who knows what a contom is though.

    I'd almost not want to get them, though, because it'd be like having specially patterned tissues. You wouldn't want to use them!

    (Unless, as Sunioc suggests, you become a distributor, in which case, you'd have plenty.)

    This made my day! "Hump smarter, save the snail darter" = perfect.

    Oh I was hoping the condoms themselves would have pictures on. :(

    Hey, I love these! It would be awesome if the condoms themselves had the pictures. Though I think it’s only the box which is different from other condoms. Where can you get one of these from?

    Having the pictures on the condoms themselves would pave the way to some very corny bedroom jokes. Just throwing it out there.
