Have you ever seen two animals being in love? I have. But they were animals of the same species. This case is special and unique. 3-year-old giraffe Bea and ostrich Wilma are always together. They live in Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay. And it seems to me that they don’t need anybody else to be happy.
I thought I knew a lot about different species of fish; however Anglerfishes are probably the most unusual creatures I have read about. This story is written and drawn in a funny way; however all the facts are true and very curious. Believe me, this is something you should know ;)

Great, funny and inspiring ads with dogs. I love them!
It’s sad so many chickens were killed to create this photo chain, but thanks to it you can learn more about chicken evolution from the very beginning. Remember, it’s the oldie of the day ;)
Here’s the little riddle of the day: can you say what this is?
This cat is so warmed by the sun that it doesn’t pay any attention to others. It is the laziest cat I have ever seen!
You surely don't wanna miss this!
This cat’s name is Scarlett. Since 1996, brave and courageous animals, who’ve done heroic acts to help humans or other animals are given the Scarlett Award for Animal Heroism, in Scarlett's honor.
And here’s her story.
Scarlett, was a feral cat living in Brooklyn, New York. On March 29, 1996, an abandoned Brooklyn garage in was on fire. Firefighters arrived on the scene fairly quickly, and during the fire one of the firemen - David Giannelli - noticed a cat, who repeatedly returned to the burning garage, pulling out one by one her kittens. The cat had already the burnt paws, ears, and face, her eyes were wet from the fire and she was chocking on smoke, but only after she pulled out from the fire the last of her babies and counted them by touching them with her nose to make sure that all of them were here, she lost consciousness.
More about Scarlett inside the post.
Penguins are such neat little animals. They look so formal in the little tuxedo like outfits. They are also very friendly to humans. As some of the close up photos in this post shows, they are also beautiful.
The Spectacled Bear (the Andean Bear) is the last remaining “short-faced” bear in the world. Its cubs are really adorable. You can see the Andean bear babies that were born in the National Zoo in January taking their first real outside walk in the end of April. Aren’t they cuties?

Enjoy this interesting compilation of transparent creatures that look simply amazing on these photos.
Goats love to pose for the camera. They seem to enjoy showing off their tongues, laughing and making hilarious faces!
Doggies shown here are probably loved by their owners. But they look so pitiful and hilarious, I can’t stop laughing :)
This cute baby fox got stuck in a watering can. Luckily, there were people around to rescue it.
WTF is this???
The answer is inside the post.
This guy was born lucky to survive such an unexpected chase by an elephant. Gigantic feet and huge tusks were after him, but the man managed to escape! It’s just unbelievable!
This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! It’s nothing like little kittens or newly born puppies. I find hedgehog babies much cuter. Take a look at these sweet little ones born at Hamor Hollow, a USDA-licensed breeder.
All these parrots are very unusual. They participated in the Bird Sports Meeting in China showing their personal best in weightlifting, skating, rolling, acrobatics and other sports.
There have been lots of protests and riots in Athens, Greece lately. There has also been one dog that has been consistently spotted at these riots for the past two years. It is the same dog in each photo and it makes one wonder why it continues to take part in the riots. It could be that its owner is one of the demonstrators but no one knows for sure.
After the little kitten hidden in a police car bumper, this time it is a baby seal that was stuck under a police car in Ocean Beach, California. He got out from the ocean, crawled for 50-60 yards on the grass area and got on the road. The police car that was passing by, stopped in the middle of the road so that any car couldn’t run the baby seal over. When the police car stopped, the animal got under it and had a nap for almost 4 hours.
Then the ‘Sea World Marine Animal Rescue’ team was called, they took out the baby seal and took him into the Sea World for 4-6 weeks until he gains a normal weight and force. Then they will free him into the wild.
Another “animal” happy ending :)))
I think that animals change this world for better. Their emotions always make my heart melt! They do such hilarious “faces” that I start smiling, laughing and getting many other positive emotions myself.
Can you imagine 1.8 million bats flying above your head? This can happen if you dare to come to the Monfort Bat Cave in Samal and scare off bats that made a home here. The cave with bats is located on a property owned by Norma Monfort who enjoys watching bats flying by at night. Her mission is to preserve this unique habitat that is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest colony of Geoffrey’s Rousette Fruit Bat in the world.
This snow monkey baby was born in Central Park Zoo in New York. His name is Oz. When he turned 11 months his family thought it was time for their child to learn how to swim. See how it all happened.
Funny animals giving a high five ;)
Edit: Thousands of gallons of oil were dumped into the Gulf of Mexico Gulf Coast. This disaster has affected many creatures so far, and will most likely affect many others. Sad consequences of human activity are illustrated after the jump.
Where do you think cats love to lay back and spread out? These cute animals love sinks, and you can spy on them inside this post.
Some time ago we posted the story about little kitten that was saved by one woman in Shanghai who brought him to her country.
This time the story takes place in Russia. One couple got this little kitty from the streets “all bruised, half-dead with plenty of fleas.”
Quiet working time of employees of the National Museum of American Indian was interrupted by a mother-duck, “traveling” in the streets with her 13 ducklings. The employees didn’t remain indifferent. When the mother came to the National Air and Space Museum, a guard gathered her kids in a bucket and carried them to the nearby pond, and the mother walked near him quacking angrily.
These strange sea species were found in Greenland waters. All the fish in the pictures look scary, and I will never go swimming in that region :)
Some photos of these dogs are very hilarious. Pay attention at the smile, it’s especially… mmm… cute? charming? And all the emotions are just amazing :)
An interesting BeetleCam project created by two brothers from the UK has helped them to take wonderful pictures of wild elephants, lions and other animals in Tanzania. Brothers Matthew and Williams Burrard-Lucas spent two weeks in savannah letting their camera roll on its wheels closer to the animals to make the best shots. They operated their device from a distance sitting in their car nearby. Elephants were ok with the moving “enemy”, but lions crushed the camera and threw it away. Luckily, it was possible to restore the memory card and make these photos available. Enjoy!
