You Have To Hand It To Those Hummingbirds (Video)

Hummingbirds are enchanting creatures. They have a Disney-esque quality to them that makes us question sometimes if they are real or fiction. Their mesmerizing wing-flapping sets them apart from all of their avian cousins. We think of them as illusive, disallowing us the opportunity to get up close and personal with them.

Snoop Dogg Can't Understand Why Ibex Butt Heads

During a Jimmy Kimmel TV late show taping on June 30th, Snoop Dogg went all Jane Goodall over why ibexes butt heads. Except, instead of having studied the behavior of these magnificent animals like our favorite anthropologist did with monkeys, the rapper mistook his subjects for billy goats, rams and elks. But that's par for the course, since Snoop can't quite decide on how to describe himself either. . .

The Little Elephant That Might Not Roar (Video)

For those unfamiliar with the 1955 Cold War satirical novel and movie titled, 'The Mouse That Roared,' the premise was based on an imaginary country in Europe that declared war on the U.S. in an attempt to gain global exposure and boost its economy.

World Cup 2014 Has Gone To The Dogs!

Must say. . . professional futbol players have an age-old tradition of conducting themselves in a very gentleman-like fashion. As evidenced at this year's World Cup in Brazil, if one player trips or elbows another and causes him to take a fall, you'll often see them helping their opponents back onto their feet, or rubbing their head, or apologizing by offering a handshake.

World Cup 2014 Winners Determined By Psychic Animals? (Videos)

Animals seem to have leg up on the bookmakers when it comes to wagers made to determine winners in major sporting events. But you got to hand it to our furry and reptilian friends - after several different species were successful in picking the winner of the last Super Bowl in the States, it's not a stretch to think that animals outside of our borders could be just as accurate with their winning picks.
