What animal looks like Batman, weighs more than a ton, can grow to 30 feet in width and is able to fly? While it could be mistaken for a prehistoric bird, we’re talking about a manta ray (aka “flying mobula”). And they’re often captured on film bursting out of the ocean ascending as high 9 feet in the air.

Knitting Nests For Injured And Abandoned Baby Animals

Wildlife Rescue Nests is a non-profit group created by Katie Deline-Ray in Ontario, Canada that provides free knitted and crocheted nests to wildlife rescue groups. These little nests and burrows help rescued and orphaned wildlife feel warm and safe while they heal and recover. It has earned her the nickname of "the crazy nest lady."

Windshield Wiper Vandalism Case Solved, Perps Won't Become Jailbirds

Tama, Japan's Feline Stationmaster, Says Sayonara

Sad news came out of Japan this week that Tama, the feline stationmaster for the Wakayama Electric Railway's Kishi station has passed away. The calico cat had taken up the post after it was noticed how much the little stray enjoyed meeting people who arrived at the station.

Same-Sex Unions In Animal Kingdom Set A Precedent 560 Million Years Ago

While it just took 9 judges (with a 5-4 vote) to deliberate on the historic decision allowing same-sex marriages in the United States, there’s been no need for such formality in the animal kingdom.

Give Your Koi A New View Of The World

Many landscape gardeners find that adding a healthy pond full of living fish is the ultimate focal point of a spectacular outdoor living space. The large fish -- like koi -- may not find living in a small water feature quite so exciting. You can consider adding floating dome that would allow your fish to have a larger view of the outside world -- and you.

Time To Check A Cat Out Of The "Library"

They call New Mexico the Land of Enchantment. For cat lovers it just got a little more enchanting. That is because there is a "library" in Las Cruces that has no books -- just cats. This is taking place at the Doña Ana County office building where county officials installed a kitty condo a few years ago.
