Possum Pic Still Perplexing People

This photo of a portly possum in Australia has been circulating on the internet for almost three years now. Reportedly this little marsupial had broken into a bakery and eaten the pastries until he could no longer move. It is a very cute photo with one major issue -- it may not be the real thing. There is no evidence to back up the photo and many people have claimed that it is a Photoshop job.

Rockfish Receive Prosthetic Eyes

In the category of things you never thought you'd see -- fish receiving glass eyes so that the other fish would stop picking on them. In late November 2014, two rockfish at the Vancouver Aquarium in Canada underwent surgery to receive prosthetic eyes to replace the eye that each of them had lost to cataracts. Missing an eye apparently made them look weak to the other fish in the tank which led to the fish being bullied.


Moose: Working At The Car Wash!

It is winter again and so it is time for the reports of moose licking cars are starting to roll in. Visitors at Sprague Lake in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park this past Thursday were treated to the entertaining sight of a moose cow licking down a number of cars in the parking lot. It is a sight that happens all across North America wherever moose are found.

Stray Cat Saves Baby Abandoned On A Frigid Russian Winter Night

Russia is known for its frigid winter weather when frosty nights aren't fit for man nor beast. Babies and cats, on the other hand, can make a go of things if they work together to keep one another warm. Such was the case one sub-zero night when someone abandoned an infant in a box frequented by Masha, a long-haired local stray cat from Obninsk, Russia.

Rhinos Stage The Great Escape

Three female white rhinoceroses at the Ramat Gan Safari Park in Israel decided to begin the New Year by making a bid for freedom when no one was looking. At about 6 a.m. on January 1st, Rhianna, Keren Peles, and Karnivala chose to make a run for it when they found two gates to their enclosure left open. Their adventure was furthered by a guard that had fallen asleep.

Geese Ride The Himalayas Like A Roller Coaster

Some humans seek out the Himalayas as a spiritual retreat - some for communing with nature - others for trekking to the highest peaks — but none I think would equate those majestic mountains to an amusement park ride. Additionally, either would migratory birds. But there is a rare breed known as the bar-headed geese (Anser inducus) — who while I’m sure  have never been to Disney World  — use the Himalayan Mountains. . .

Meet Mango, The Tesco Tabby

Anyone who knows cats knows that once a cat finds a place that it likes you will be hard pressed to change its mind. Such is the case with Mango, a gray tabby cat in Tiverton, Devon, England. While he has a proper home and someone to care for him, he likes to spend his days hanging out at his local Tesco grocery store. There he greets customers, checks on inventory, and naps.

Bus-Riding Dog Charms Seattle

We all know that most dogs are smart, but some of them go way above and beyond. There is a beautiful black lab mix in Seattle that is turning a lot of heads these days. Her name is Eclipse and she likes to take the bus to the dog park. The twist is that she will take the bus alone. She has become the most popular passenger on the D Line downtown.

Bears: What Drinking Can Lead To

When you live in an area like the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado you kind of get used to having a lot of wildlife around. These animals can turn up around just about every corner. That still doesn't make it any less surprising and funny to find a young black bear skinny dipping in your rain barrel. The resulting photos are priceless!

Banning ‘Tiger Selfies’ In NY Could Curb One’s Tinder Love Life

In New York in February, it will become illegal to pose for a photo with a lion, tiger or other big cat. The measure - which specifically prohibits contact between members of the public and big cats at animal shows, zoos,circuses and carnivals - was passed after self-portraits with the animals started becoming more popular online, particularly with some young men on dating sites such as Tinder.
