It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Omar Vizquel.
Just when we thought that we couldn’t possibly like Omar any more, we discover that the Giants shortstop has a freaking zoo in his backyard. Not only does Omar have a zoo with real animals, he also has animals that we’ve never even heard of:
Vizquel’s zoo includes chinchillas, llamas and wallaroos (a combination of a kangaroo and wallaby). The wallaroos were hopping around as the cameras rolled.
Wallaroos are “moderately large macropods” (we can’t think of a better portmanteau than “wallaroo”) and they just beg so many questions. Where in the world does our shortstop get exotic animals like these? Do the wallaroos ride the llamas at night? How do the chinchillas fit in?
Whatever the case may be, we are almost 100% certain that Pedro Feliz comes over drunk to play with the animales pequeños peludos.
[Confession: marsupials really freak us out. Like a lot. Look at that picture. They’re just not right. So scary.]
