The case of Louie the pig makes gender confusion in humans seem so trivial. The nine-month-old pot-bellied pig is so convinced he’s part of a dog pack he happily trots through tunnels, leaps over jumps and weaves between poles just like a dog.

These marine fish are called sea dragons, they are related to the seahorse and they are really cute. There are two types of the sea dragon: the leafy and the weedy sea dragons.

Mother nature has got a wicked sense of humor. She’s also fiercely protective of her creatures as famed wildlife photographer Alex Hyde discovered on his voyage into the world of animals that utilize camouflage for survival. The pictures are awesome and will have you wishing upon a silver star for the ability to blend in.

It's a good thing these trees didn't fall down or they'll be in trouble. Here are some felines who dug the leaves in these trees.
