They say there's nothing new under the sun, but just because something's been around forever doesn't mean we know about it. 2012 was a banner year for animals being newly discovered, newly re-discovered, and newly described. Here are 10 of the most interesting wildlife finds of 2012.

Earlier this month U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Officials finally announced that their attempts to relocate sea otters from the coast of Southern California to San Nicolas Island off of the coast of Santa Barbara. This was intended to then create an "otter-free" zone along the mainland coastline. It was part of a misguided plan to help allow the sea otter population to recover.

This is quite a fascinating video.  3,000 reindeer crossing a large body of water to a new pasture.  Really amazing.

Apparently reindeer love eating hallucinogenic "magic" mushrooms.  I absolutely love the trippy angles used by the director of this video... and I wonder if Santa is in on this somehow.  Perhaps this fungi is how the reindeer "fly"...

This is one of those videos that I wanted to type "Battle Royale" in the title, but I ended out just sitting there going "How did these two animals even meet?"

We are all familiar with the usual animals of Christmas such as the beasts in the stable with the Holy Family, the sheep with the shepherds, the camels with the Wise Men, and those amazing flying reindeer, but more and more animals are taking on additional roles during the holidays. Some spill over from one culture to another. Some created from the worlds of entertainment and advertising. It is all a lot of new fun for old holidays.
