Google has some weird image on its search page tonight. It’s animated, and on the right it’s got a crystal clear waterfall flowing into a stream which winds through verdant parkland with fields of impossibly green grass and thick and sturdy trees. In the left foreground, there’s two chubby pandas chowing down on bamboo shoots, while to the right there’s a healthy and contented lion. When you mouse over it, it lifts up its head and lets out a friendly roar.

In mid-scene, some sort of plump brown bird is shown emerging from a tree canopy and flying away into the clear blue sky while at the very back there’s a huge mound of glacial ice with two penguins frollicking contentedly on it.

Here’s a link to the image here.

Usually when Google does something like that, when you mouse over the image you get a bit of background info on what the image commemorates: like the 300th anniversary of some famous scientist’s birth, for example, or the 150th anniversary of some discovery.

But when you scroll over this image, nothing pops up. So I don’t know what it’s supposed to represent.  Anyone have any ideas?
