If you love animals, you will love these unusual, adorable, animal
ornaments
from all over the world, most of them hand-crafted. Some may be your
pets; others, animals you admire from afar. But I suspect that if you
choose these to decorate your tree or to adorn other home holiday
scenes, you
won’t want to put them away until next year. So, start thinking about
permanent
places to hang them. These make unique gifts too!

A few years ago I was out deep-sea fishing with a buddy.  We caught nothing, but we were trailed by a hammerhead shark for several miles.  The thing was longer than the boat was wide.  Scary.  Where were the dolphins then?

A proposal submitted jointly by the United States and New Zealand to the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources earlier this month has failed to pass. The proposal would have greatly limited fishing in the Ross Sea, home to wildlife including penguins and seals. Supporters had argued for the creation of a sanctuary there for both scientific and conservationist reasons, but other members of the commission had different matters at stake.

Bears aren't always giant eating machines.  Take this big guy, for example.  He's as mellow, and polite, as a bear can be...

Never do this.  Ever.  I can only suspect that this guy has a death wish...

The New York Aquarium at Coney Island was amongst the many businesses threatened when Hurricane Sandy caused ocean waters to surge last week. With the facility's power out and its life-support systems damaged, the fates of thousands of resident fish, mammals, birds and reptiles hung in the balance. Now, thanks to heroes inside and out of the aquarium, life in the (enormous) fish bowl is finally on its way back to normal.

Who would'a thought it?  A rabbit and a wiener dog having fun without any animosity.  Quite cute and very cool...
