SeaWorld Is The 'Fail Whale' Of The Real World

Remember the early days of the Twittersphere and the anguish shared amongst the Twitterati with each and every appearance of their infamous 'Fail Whale?' Yes, when Twitter experienced outages, users would be presented with this error message which signaled their ecosystem was inundated with tweets and needed to take a breather. Well, analogous to that mythical whale, a real-life 'Fail Whale'...

Hamster Butts: So Small, So Cute, So... Insanely Popular?

Popular indeed – with two best-selling photo books and another on the way, hamster butts (“hamketsu” in Japanese) are sweeping Japan like, er, like only a hamster butt can.

Poppy, The World's Oldest Cat

Poppy, a cat in Bournemouth, England, is 24 years old and has recently been named the oldest cat in the world by Guinness World Records. The tortoiseshell moggy is blind and deaf, and her fur is looking a bit worse for wear, but she is still the grand dam of a household consisting of four humans, four other cats, a hamster, and a rabbit.

Spelling Bees From Extinction

Similar to the competition that starts with a large group and whittles it down to one person standing, a spelling bee of greater concern is the phenomenon that just might leave this planet without any bees buzzing. It's a critical issue affecting mankind - and requires us all to do our part in 'spelling' bees from extinction.

The “Heartbeat 50m” human vs dog race held in the Chinese city of Changsha featured various people – many dressed in costumes – being chased by specially trained dogs. That's ruff!

Keep On Trucking: Salmon Migration Done By Humans This Year

The extended severe drought conditions in California are causing a number of problems for wildlife -- perhaps none more far-reaching than the newly hatched young salmon and their need to reach the ocean. The Sacramento River is so dried up that most would never make it. So they are hitching a ride downstream from a fishy form of public transportation.

This Year's Hottest Pet Trend: Panda Dogs

Panda dogs are all the rage this year -- in China. This craze started a couple of years ago and is really starting to catch fire. The dogs are not a breed. They are cosmetically enhanced pooches, primarily chows. The dogs are cute, fuzzy, and no doubt raising a few eyebrows among animal rights activists on this side of the planet.

Death Unable To Part Man From His Best Friend

This is the kind of story that urban legends are made of -- and yet having been picked up by major media outlets -- it appears to be true. One very loyal German Shepherd by the name of Capitán won't allow even death to separate him from his master.  Seven years ago, when Miguel Guzmán died in 2007, his dog was not only able to seek out his cemetery, but he also sleeps on top his grave stone nightly.

Pak-O-Bird Carriers: Bye, Bye Birdie and Owner Too

More and more, people are traveling with their pets  to parts  both unknown and familiar. In the past, pet birds have often been left at home to pine for their owners behind fabric-covered cages  because transport has simply been too complicated. No longer, bird lovers! Introducing (trumpet blare, please) the Pac-O-Bird Carrier.

Animal Heroes: Tara The Attack Cat

I have a rock on my front steps that reads, "Warning: Attack Cat On Duty." People take this as a joke, but my cat and I know better. On Tuesday a cat named Tara proved it to the whole world that cats are loyal animals that guard their loved ones. When a neighbor's dog attacked her boy she took the pooch to task and sent him running.
