Super Important Breaking News

Thanks to a few recent generous donations, the World's Largest Zoo and Aquarium Shot Glass Collection is coming along quite nicely. I know you were all burning to know. Below is a picture of the fabulous collector's case I have stuffed most of them in. You will see it doubles as a shrine to lobsters.

Ann Littlewood is a one-time zoo keeper and now-time murder mystery writer whose stories take place in and around zoos. An awesome combination if you ask me. I'm very much looking forward to reading her upcoming book, Did Not Survive, but in the interim, I will wear my dog as a hat. As you can…

As many of you know, I collect zoo and aquarium shot glasses. I have the world's largest and probably only collection and it is my pride and joy. When I die, my children will most likely be left poor in "money" but rich in shot glasses. A legacy we can all be proud of. I have two additions to…
The world's largest zoo and aquarium shot glass collection just got one glass bigger. Someone call the Guinness Book! Growing up in Connecticut, The Mystic Aquarium was basically Benny and my Disney World. Special thanks to Eric Heupel of the awesome invertebrate blog, The Other 95%, for the…

Oh I'm bookmarking this! If I had known earlier, I would've gotten something from the Honolulu Aquarium or Zoo.

Gasp, nothing from Baltimore?! Also, that left lobster plushie is too cute.

It looks great! Too many sci-blogs are overdosing on election blogging. Zoo shot glasses are much more interesting!

This is definitely a good deal! The press hasn't stopped calling since this was posted. :)

I'll try to pick one up from the oregon zoo next time I'm around

Damn it, I would have totally gotten one from Sea World Orlando if I had remembered--I was just there in the beginning of August!

If I hit the Sanford zoo or Lowry park again in the next few months I'll send one your way--would you be averse to having one from Busch Gardens?

Jenbug - For sure. Busch Gardens is AZA so they're in the cool kids camp.

You have yet to aquire a VANCOUVER AQUARIUM shotglass, that's a shame. I may have to send one your way as I work there.

ALSO: I know you are very excited about your new site and i wanted to inform you that our Aquarium had a new baby beluga just a few months ago that they just named. I think it's high time i saw some Canadian Whale Calfs up in thurr.
