Giant two-headed naked mole rats are just wrong.
Wow – some of these are really scary! The giant squirrels! The giant Giant Panda! The rabid rabbit!
The squirrel in WWII-era London was pretty funny.

Aging Brits will doubtless be reminded of the ’70s “Goodies” episode “Kitten Kong”…
Maybe we should get PZ a forums account at SA.
Graham: If I recall, during the original thread that led to this week’s Phriday, a few people brought up Kitten Kong.
Third picture down on this page shows a cephalopod monster. Perhaps by ‘needs more squid’ you meant ‘needs more than just that one squid picture’?
I can’t offer squid, but I can offer a large reptile. Just check out Hank’s Travels at this site.
Oh no! A giant hyacinth macaw! You know they can crack Brazil nuts at their normal size (their beaks can exert a force of 2000 psi)….oh now you’ve done it, PZ! King ‘Caw has seen the Capitol, and it looks just like a giant nut!
I gotta say, as someone who shares living space with an African grey parrot, they don’t have to be giant-sized to wreak major havok.
