Mythical 'Baku' Is The Real Deal, Residing A Mile Higher Than The Rest

With a wild population of 2,000, a Malyan Tapir might be considered endangered, but with the mythical name of 'Baku' (BAH-koo), one wonders if this rare species might have arrived on the planet with some very unique supernatural powers? According to Japanese folklore, Baku are other-wordly creatures that were known to devour the nightmares of children and protect them from evil.

Birding Transitions From Flights Of Fancy To High-Tech Enterprise

n my post, "'Big Year' Birders Count More Than Four & Twenty Blackbirds," I talked about the famous birders of our day. I researched some of the greats like the "legendary human bird-dog" Sandy Komito, and learned of his bird-watching prowess and how many of his techniques became 'best practices' for birders the world over.

Pet Tortoise Lost 32 Years Ago Found Alive In An Upstairs Room

That's not a lost pet, THIS is a lost pet! Manuela, a red-footed tortoise and beloved pet of the Almeida family of Rio de Janeiro, went missing in 1982 but she didn't go far: the family finally discovered her in a furniture-choked attic room having survived on termites for over 30 years.

The Pet Collective's 'Twenty Fur' Debuts With Jack Bowwow Barking Up A Storm

Forget Jack Bauer's 24 -  there's a new agent in town that's dog-gone funnier - and he gets to the point a lot quicker! His mission opens with "the following takes place between 2:58PM and 3:00PM - events occur in dog years." Apparently a threat was issued against CTU (Canine Terrier Unit) that cats were dumping chocolate into the water supply. It's now up to "Jack Bowwow" to save the day --erhh, the next 2 minutes. . .

Hey Dude, Where's My Hotel? Residence Inn Recruits Giraffe For Commercials

Having worked domestically and internationally as a director of marketing with Marriott Hotels for years, I can honestly say (perhaps with prejudice), this hotel chain outshines its competition when it comes to advertising. The Residence Inn, one of their long-term-stay brands is continuing that tradition into the 21st Century, with the introduction of "Dude," the frequent-traveling giraffe.

Customers Are Swarming To Buy This Street Vendor's Fresh Rice Cakes

Every once in a while the worlds of people and animals meet in a weird, wild and wonderful way. Such a scene recently occurred on a sunny street in Shanghai, China as a hard-working street food seller diligently prepared dough for her delicious mochi rice cakes, blissfully oblivious to the ominous buzzing of hundreds of swarming bees.

Microchipping or Facial Recognition For 'Hurricane Sandy' Dog Might Have Sped Up His Return

This story has that "Lassie Come Home" feel to it. Major storm! Pet gets loose! Heartbreak! Then a year-and-half later- a reunion like no other. This transpired when a family decided to replace their lost dog with a new pup -- only to find out their wayward pooch was waiting for them at point and time of purchase. Sometimes, truth is stranger than fiction!

Thar She Blows! The Top 8 Exploding Whales

Cetaceans don't explode very often but when they do, they make a whale of a mess. An 81-foot-long carcass of a Blue Whale that washed ashore in Trout River, Newfoundland is the latest ticking time bomb to have folks holding their breaths... and their noses. Here's what can we expect when Moby Dick meets his end with a bang and not a whimper.

Chamallow: The Cat Houdini

A veterinary clinic in Marseille, France, was in an uproar when Chamallow came to live there. He was unwilling to remain captive as long as he could do something about it. And so something he did. The little escape artist managed to make his way out of every cage they tried on him. So they finally caught him in the act on video to understand just how he was getting out.

Google Glass For The Praying Mantis?

Many have wondered if the "Praying" Mantis was mistakenly misspelled, and that this very unique insect which belongs to the "Mantidae" family should be referred to instead, as the "Preying" Mantis.  And to that point, with some very intriguing scientific research underway this week, it would seem that this predatory critter is being equipped with something comparable to Google Glass to get even more upfront and personal with its prey.
