A Look At Science Fiction’s Intergalactic Wildlife: Hoth

The science fiction genre of films has created a limitless universe of planets to be populated with unusual ecosystems filled with exotic and alien creatures to entertain us on the big screen. These extraterrestrial animals are often given additional backstories to stimulate imaginations beyond their all-too-often role of filling out the backgrounds of our favorite movies. Strap on your snow boots and grab a scarf: We’re going to the harsh, frozen wastelands of Hoth! (As seen in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back)

She received Susan, her first corgi, as a gift for her 18th birthday. Susan led to additional generations of royal dogs and ultimately to the creation a hybrid dog called a dorgi.

Cool Stuff – Petchup & Meowstard Spices Up Your Pet's Food

I know what you’re thinking, and I’m totally onboard: “Petchup” and “Meowstard” are both ridiculous names… Ridiculously awesome! There are plenty of good reasons to buy condiments to compliment your dog or cat’s kibble, but bragging to your friends that you slather kitty’s breakfast with Meowstard comes close to topping the list.

Mythical Monday: German (And English) Straw Bear

In the days of late winter or early spring it has long been a custom in Germany and some other areas of Europe a straw bear was brought out in celebration processions. The bear was thought to drive winter away. These days the bear is most often a symbol of Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of Lent and the end of the carnival season.

Why The Howler Monkey Is A Bad Pet Idea

However, there are some nature fans who try to raise the bar by bringing home a creature that they probably shouldn’t, like today’s featured fauna: The Howler Monkey.

Llama! The Animal Video of the Day!!!

A few years ago I had a friend (he's deceased now) that had a pet llama named Cousin Ren.  When I find the photos I'll write an article about this bizarre animal (he had a spinal fusion, so his neck was always horizontal--and his genetic code pretty much had him crossed between a llama and a goat--really odd animal).  This video isn't about Cousin Ren, but it does show just how inquisitive and fun llamas can be...
