Over the years, I’ve acknowledged some of Twitter’s “Top Pet Tweeters.” Yes, based on the number of pets that have taken to the microblogging site, it can definitely be said that Twitter is an all-inclusive ecosystem. Sockamillion [aka @sockington], and who identifies himself as “Jason Scott’s Cat,” is one of the many felines with millions of followers. And there are hundreds of other cats as well as dogs and birds who have been tweeting up a storm, for years.

Vietnam, the war-torn country of the 60s is back in the news fighting a modern-day battle. This time it’s a humanitarian effort to bust-up the illegal wildlife trafficking of rhinoceros and elephant ivory.

When it comes to paper art from Japan the first thing that comes to mind is the amazing works of origami and kirigami. These days the amazing paper sculptures created by Chie Hitotsuyama is taking the world by storm. She takes old newspapers and cuts them into strips that she rolls into thin tubes that she uses to upcycle the papers into a wide variety of animals both wild and domestic.

The toddler years are some of the most exciting, trying, and humbling
experiences a parent will ever go through.  If you've reached your
limit, here are some pictures of animal parents dealing with their
toddlers so you don't feel alone.  No matter what species, we all deal
with the terrible twos (and threes, and fours,
and eighteens).  I see you, moms and dads with a tantrum throwing tot, and this one is for you.
