Since many dogs have long fur, their owners feel ok about giving their pets a haircut. Sadly, some of these dogs just cannot say, “Hey, please, noooooo!” before they start looking so funny or get the worst haircut ever.

Patting a Tiger (20 pics)

Most zoos don’t allow visitors to see tigers eye to eye. But if you come to Thailand and visit a local tiger farm, you will be allowed not only to pat a tiger but also to hold this animal. Baby tigers look so sweet and innocent, and even grown tigers look tamed here. Still you can’t forget that they are superb predators.

Dogs are amazing friends. They can protect you, make you laugh, raise your mood… and ruin your house. Yes, these man’s best friends turn into furry monsters when you are not around them. Left alone, they can destroy many different things. But it is still too difficult to punish them, right?

 

The previous part of Furry Monsters also shows dogs having fun while you are not at home.

Malaysian Temple with Hundreds Poisonous Snakes (26 pics)

Posted in Animals 17 Jun 2010   / 9250 views

Such a snake temple is situated in Penang, Malaysia. You can find there many kinds of snakes and the majority of them are deadly. But it doesn’t stop people to come there as it seems that snakes don’t mind the presence of humans. The local legend says that the temple was built by a monk who gave shelter to several snakes first; then, snakes just kept coming over there.

Would you like to go there? I know for sure that I’ll never go there ;)

The dogs in these photos may just be dogs but they sure look like wild animals. I am sure that they are friendly, but at first glance you have to wonder if they are a cross between a dog and a wild animal ;)

However, they are amazing looking dogs.

The BP Oil Leak Disaster: Animals Are the First Victims! (26 pics)

Posted in Animals 8 Jun 2010   / 10034 views

Humans have this annoying habit of messing with Mother Nature wherever they go, whether it's volunteer or not, the result is the same: nature always suffers from human activity.
It's been more than a month and a half now since the
Explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig of the Gulf of Mexico and the oil leak has had more than plenty of time to reach the coasts of Louisiana and mess with nature.
Animals are obviously the first and very victims of the leak and we don't count all the seabirds, fish and other creatures caught in the dirty oil slick.
Very sad pictures of this drama await you inside the post...

How many dogs can live in a dog favela? Well, according to the photos in this post about 1600 (and some 200 cats). This one in the city of Caxias do Sul in Brazil is very humane and takes dogs in off the street to care for them. It is underfunded but they do the best they can and the dogs seem happy.

Positive Emotion of the Day - Pangolins (26 pics)

Posted in Animals 7 Jun 2010   / 6529 views

A pangolin is a very cute mammal which resembles a little an armadillo and can roll up into a ball as well.  They have large keratin scales covering their skin and are the only mammals with this adaptation.

The name "pangolin" derives from the Malay word pengguling which means "something that rolls up".

Aren’t they cute?
