Cows Driving Cars
Posted on May 8, 2017

I suspect that this video will show why bulls should not be allowed behind the wheel of a fine truck.  And it doesn't have to do with the lack of thumbs. They just plain can't drive.

I must admit to being happy that we don't have to go through this in the United States...

We've all had those days at school or work where keeping your eyes open is just too much to deal with.  Such is the case with this little duck.

I'm not sure about you, but when I think of eagles, I think of them as soaring majestically through the skies--not doing a crazy breast stroke across a lake.

Goat In Tree
Posted on November 20, 2016

How?  How does this happen?  And how do you get it down?

Conan and Bird
Posted on November 19, 2016

Animal expert David Mizejewski always throws Conan O'Brien for a loop with the critters he brings to the show--and Conan's reactions are worth watching.

Croc Game
Posted on November 18, 2016

This video simply confirms my theory that some people are just plain stupid and have too much time on their hands.

Horseback Archery
Posted on November 17, 2016

See that picture?  The reason its so blurry is that horse is going roughly the speed of light.  This insanely cool video will make you want to learn this difficult sport.

Monkey Massage
Posted on November 16, 2016

What could be better after a long, hard day of being cute than a massage?

Trilobite Beetle
Posted on November 15, 2016

These bizarre looking beetles are extremely rare--so rare that scientists have only viewed them mating twice...

Dog and Lemon
Posted on November 14, 2016

I know a few people that can suck on a lemon without cringing.  I'm not one of them.  And many of these dogs aren't either.

Fights are just an unfortunate part of life--particularly when growing up.  This kittens fighting tactics are unorthodox to say the least.  But are they effective?

Uroplatus Gecko
Posted on November 12, 2016

The Uroplatus Gecko is quite an interesting looking lizard!  Check out those eyes!

Battle Buddy
Posted on November 11, 2016

This dog had a place of honor as Grand Marshall of the Veteran's Day Parade in New Richmond, Ohio... and rightfully so.

Meet Rudy.  He is thoroughly enjoying his bath--a bath that is well-deserved after experiencing a very harsh life.

Baby Hippo
Posted on November 10, 2016

This baby hippo was abandoned by his family.  He was sad and all alone.  But the kindness of people led him to find happiness again... and a new friend.

Paradise Flycatcher
Posted on November 9, 2016

Excuse me.  I think your bird is broken.

Posted on November 8, 2016

Now that election day is upon us here in the United States, I had to wonder if we humans are the only species that votes.  It turns out that we aren't...

Fin Whale
Posted on November 8, 2016

Nature abides by certain laws, many of which are not pleasant.  This video (though not graphic) displays a remarkable amount of intelligence used by Orca when hunting large prey...

Posted on November 7, 2016

I can think of a lot of things I would do if I were 97-years-old.  Actually, that's a lie.  I will probably just stay in bed and watch re-runs of NCIS.  But, this woman has the right idea--and she's awesome.

Bear in bath
Posted on November 6, 2016

Well, I guess bath time is gonna have to wait.  The tub is currently occupied.

Elephant Pumpkin
Posted on November 5, 2016

Elephants.  Pumpkins.  Never would I have considered this to be such an entertaining mix of how to play with your food before dinner.

Recipe for fun:

  1. A hill
  2. Snow
  3. A happy dog
Tigger 1

Have you ever heard of a Clouded Leopard?  Neither had I until I stumbled upon this short, beautiful video about these amazing creatures...

Looking for a little musical interlude?  This little cockatiel may just be what you need.
