The 20 Most Fascinating Nonhumans Of 2011

Last year we demanded that Barbara Walters’ monopoly over what’s “most fascinating” must end. We insisted that the scope of her annual list–the 10 most fascinating people of the year–is too narrow. So to celebrate all the fascinating nonhuman things from 2011–both the glorious and miserable–we created this list, which we will now reprise for 2011.

This collection includes foods, clothing and one weapon. It’s rich but we had to draw the line somewhere, so leave a comment with what you think is most fascinating nonhuman of 2011. Onwards with all the material objects and other things that don’t share our DNA.
