Girlhood & Animals, A Coming of Age Photo-Drama

Similar to the recent release of the full-length movie, Boyhood, Robin Schwartz’ photobook Amelia & the Animals, captures her daughter’s life from ages 3 to 14. However differing from the movie, this child is filmed over time interacting with a series of animals -- animals that most other children could only dream about engaging with.

Who Knew Animals Could Out Smart Humans?

The next time you see yourself paling in comparison to those who’ve won the Nobel Peace Prize or you've failed to find a cure for cancer, bear in mind in addition to being outdone by your fellow man, you may also be outflanked by a few super animals. Some of them have innate abilities that a lot of humans need college degrees to match up.

Goat Detained For Armed Robbery

This one has got to be filed under "strange but true." A few years ago a goat was arrested on suspicion of attempted armed robbery after two men tried to steal a Toyota 323. So how did a goat get mixed up in a caper like this? It is a wild tale full of mystery and magic -- and possibly a case of mistaken identity.

Kitten Rescued From Dire Situation

Cats can have a way of getting into many a strange and unexpected situation. This is certainly true of one kitten in Russia that somehow managed to get itself stuck in the spring of a Toyota Land Cruiser. The poor creature traveled 50 miles before the driver, Vitaliy Bouranin, stopped for gas and noticed that his undercarriage was meowing.

Strange But True: A Sturgeon Petting Zoo

Having a petting zoo for a fish is not the sort of thing you'd expect to find anywhere, let alone as far inland as Urbana, Ohio. It may sound strange (and it is) but true. A fish hatchery by the name of Freshwater Farms has set up a tank where several endangered White Sturgeons and several other species are kept for visitors to the hatchery to get to meet and get to know personally.

Dolphin Tale’s Aquarium Says NO To ‘Show Must Go On’

In the literal and figurative wake of the controversy that emerged at SeaWorld, and the subsequent film “Blackfish” that documented it, it’s not surprising that the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida decided to bring down the curtain on using dolphins for entertainment purposes.

PETA Denounces SeaWorld Verbally, But Invests Monetarily?

It’s seems incredulous that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) -- long respected as a champion for the rights of animals -- could reverse its position on SeaWorld within the same year. Yet that appears to be the case, much to the dismay of animal lovers the world-over, including one multi-award winning actress and singer.

Used Soviet Dog Spacesuit Going Up For Auction

Who wouldn't “Laika” a gently used dog spacesuit from the 1960 Sputnik-5 mission? This original and rare relic of the Space Race could be yours for just a few thousand Euros... provided you outbid other bidders at the upcoming auction.

Mama Cat Ends Up In Prickly Situation

Two years ago one very loving ginger mama cat found her litter of one kitten expanded to five with the addition of four hedgehogs. With plenty of milk to share the hedgehogs had found a warm, furry loving mommy to care for them after the untimely death of their own mother. It must have been a rather prickly situation -- at least at first.

Spanish Resort Resorts To Hiring A Dog As A Lifeguard

A tourist beach in San Pedro del Pinatar has taken the step of being the first place in Spain to add a dog to its list of employees as a lifeguard. The Newfoundland, named Bruno, comes from a long line of dogs bred for water rescues and now he is living up to this glorious heritage. Newfoundlands have a natural swimming ability supported by their webbed feet and water-resistant coats.
