Four years ago an African Grey Parrot named Nigel went missing from his home in Southern California where he lived with transplanted Brit Darren Chick.

Rainforest Creature Big Like Puppy, But No Webmaster

Enough With The Ice Buckets -- It's Time For Pies 4 Paws

Are you the kind of animal lover who would be willing to take a pie in the face to help raise awareness and funds for shelter and rescue pets across the country? Then you may be up for the Pies 4 Paws challenge. It is the animal answer to the Ice Bucket Challenge that raced across the country to raise money for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).

Polar Bears Ruin Halloween For Kids In Canadian Arctic Hamlet

Old and busted: the Grinch who stole Christmas. New hotness: the polar bears who stole Halloween!

Generally speaking, the terms “dove” and “pigeon” are used interchangeably.

How The KLM Airlines Dog Fooled The World

KLM, the Dutch airline, released a video last month that showed a handsome and dashing beagle running the airport on a mission to return lost items to their owners. It is a fun romp as he races past security, trains to keep in shape, and mingles with the passengers and airline employees. The adorable dog is welcomed everywhere he goes and brightens everyone's day. There's just one problem. . .

Smaug: Here There Be Dragons

Dragons have long been creatures of legend -- or have they? There are a number of reptilian creatures out there that may have contributed to the legends -- from dinosaur remains to lizards. In the case of cordylus giganteus, or smaug giganteus, it definitely has a strong resemblance to some depictions of a dragon, though it is much smaller. The "giant" part of its name refers to its size in relation to other members of cordylid family.

Rare Velvet Worm Named After Animated Characters From My Neighbor Totoro

What's been spreading virally lately? Besides Ebola, it's an odd-looking velvet worm dubbed Eoperipatus Totoro. Scientists who named the peripatetic creature were reminded not only of Totoro himself but also of the mythical, multi-legged Catbus.

Putin Uses Animals To Soften & Embolden His Image Globally

It’s a strange paradox to think of the Russian leader whose current image is that of a threatening totalitarian dictator could also be fond of a wide variety of animals, both domestic and wild.
