The Tale Of The Crow And The Kitten

The story of the unusual bond between a crow and a kitten began back in 1999 when the kitten turned up in the yard of Wallace and Ann Collito. It was so small that at first they thought it was a rat. Once they discovered it was a kitten they figured that someone had thrown it over the fence of their Massachusetts mobile home park. They were worried about the cat's welfare, right up until they noticed that she already had a caretaker -- a crow.

And we have a contender for 2014’s strangest story, and it’s only February! Remus Cernea has pushed a bill into the Romanian parliament that would give dolphins many of the same legal rights as humans do…

Finland Working On Glow-In-The-Dark Reindeer

New innovations in reindeer herding is not the sort of news that is going to pop up every day. It is a millennia-old vocation throughout northern Scandinavia and parts of Russia. The animals are bred and raised for their meat, fur, and milk. The problem is that thousands of the reindeer are killed in car accidents every year -- and the answer just may be glow-in-the-dark antlers.

England’s Penguins Given Antifungal Meds, NOT “Happy Pills!”

Contrary to the reports hitting the web this month, Northern England’s Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary did not give their penguins antidepressants! The penguins have been given another medicine to protect themselves in the cold and wet UK winters though…

Bubbles And Bella Are Best Buds

There is something about "odd" animal pairings that touches our hearts. Whether it is a moose apparently in love with a cow or a mama cat caring for ducklings, we are impressed by this cross-species connection. At times even size doesn't seem to matter -- as with the deep friendship between Bubbles the elephant and Bella, a black Labrador retriever. They take walks together, go for long swims, and even play fetch.

You Can't Goat A Bengal Tiger, Particularly When He's Come To Dinner!

Primal instincts don't always return when you remove a ferocious cat from the 'Bush' -- especially when that particular feline is a Bengal Tiger cub! Such was the case when a baby tiger named "Bhangaram" was left orphaned after the mysterious disappearance of his mother.

Cute Creepy Lykoi Cats Look Like Miniature Werewolves

It's no accident Lykoi Cats look a lot like little werewolves... actually, it IS an accident: these strikingly cute (or jaw-droppingly creepy depending on your POV) felines first appeared almost four years ago as a natural mutation from a black domestic shorthair mother.

Guinea Pig Suit Of Armour Sold For Over $24K On eBay -- Almost

"Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear?" This was the sales pitch one man who went by the user name mightysox when he was selling his late guinea pig's suit of scale-mail armor. It brought in over $24,000 -- right up until the bidder backed out of the deal.

Super Race Of Crazy Ants Have Commenced An Evolutionary Arms Build-Up [Video]

Up till now, Fire Ants have dominated the Insect Kingdom because of their deadly venomous spray. However, as part of the formidable Formicidae family, apparently the word was late getting out there was a new Sheriff in town. Because throughout the US southwest there's been a rise of a new invasive species of ants who biologists humorously refer to as 'Crazy Ants.' And these little critters are doing a damn good job of displacing their much larger cousins, the Fire Ants!

Dog Chews Through Sports Car

There are a lot of dogs with chewing issues out there, but one dog went above and beyond with her compulsive behavior. She chewed through the fender of her owner's $130,000 Aston Martin DB9 Volante earlier this month. Perhaps she just had a craving for fiberglass. The damage cost $5,000 to repair. It also cost Luce her home when her owner gave her away. Well, sort of.
