Some say people look like their pets. We say pets look like people. Check out these pet-a-like pictures.
Peter Crouch – Praying Mantis
Though the resemblence is obvious – they’re both all limbs – the striker and the insect both also rely on quick reflexes and the ability to keep a firm hold on the ball or the prey, respectively.
Crouch could benefit, however, from some more of the mantis’s anatomical advantages. For example, some mantises can move their heads almost 300 degrees around (without moving the rest of their bodies), and their compound eyes g ive the m a very large field of vision.
Peter Serafinowicz – Woodchuck
The woodchuck (aka the groundhog, land-beaver and whistle-pig) is one of the largest rodents in the world, and Serafinowicz is one of the most famous British writer-actor-composer-comedian-voice artist-Twitterers in the world.
Like Serafinowicz, the woodchuck has many jobs, including chucking wood and predicting how long winter will last in New England.
In truth, they are relentless diggers. They can move around 320 kg (710) lbs of dirt when digging out a burrow, which can be up to 14 metres (46 ft)long and 1.5 metres (5 ft) underground.
Rupert Grint – Mombasa Golden Starburst Tarantula
The Golden Starburst Tarantula is a native of Eastern Africa and make a desirable pet for spider lovers. It is relatively common in Kenya and Mombasa where is can be found in rudimentary silk lined burrows. One of its favourite meals is cockroach. If Grint visited Kenya or Mombasa, we hope that one of these spiders doesn’t try and mate with his hair.
