THIS GORILLA GOING FULL FLASHDANCE IN A KIDS POOL

As someone who has been known to “leave it all out there on the dance floor,” I know the pure joy that comes from ~really feeling it~ when it comes to dancing. It brings a certain level of joy (and endorphins) to your life that’s hard to replicate without leaning into the rush of it all and fully letting go. It just feels RIGHT—and this gorilla knows what I’m talking about, just look at how

Australian Police Dog Deemed ‘TOO FRIENDLY’ To Go After Criminals

This week in “They’re good dogs, Brent” news, an intrepid young pup lost his chance at a life of police work. His downfall? His own sunny disposition. Yes, Gavel, a young German shepherd in Queensland, Australia, was too friendly for a position in law enforcement, according to the BBC. Gavel, a very good boy, seemed suited for a police dog position given his bloodline. Family members before him had sported ceremonial coats as part of

60,000 bees create a gorgeous honeycomb teapot

Bees are increasingly recognised as a hugely important pillar of food and agriculture. But they’re not just good at pollenating; they’re pretty great at building amazing honeycomb structures when given the chance. 60,000 bees in a hive constructed a beautiful tea pot around a wire frame constructed by artist Tomáš Libertíny, with Dutch beekeepers Johan Beckers and Bart De Coo working to look over the bees as they built their beeswax sculpture.

PRIMATE SPAWN OF LORD VOLDEMORT FOUND IN THE HIMALAYAS

Paging J.K. Rowling. I repeat: paging J.K. Rowling. It seems we have been duped, my fellow Potter fans, and a new enemy grows strong in our confusion. If you thought the last Horcrux was destroyed after the Battle of Hogwarts, it’s time for a trip to the Himalayas. For hiding there, in the most remote, icy peaks of the mountain range, is the spawn of Lord Volde–erm, you know who. Meet the baby Yunnan snub-nosed monkey. In

POV VIDEO OF AN EAGLE HUNTING A FOX IS SO INTENSE

When humans hunt, for the most part, it’s admittedly not that exciting. There’s a lot of covering yourself in animal urine and just waiting around. There’s not a lot of stalking prey and waiting for your moment to pounce and face off one-on-one, beast vs. beast. I’m not much of a hunter personally, so excuse me if that’s a misguided view of the subject. The point I’m trying to make is that when other animals

WATCH ADORABLE BABY RAYS EAT SASHIMI

Look, we’ve been around the internet for a long time. We’ve seen a lot of cute things. We’ve watched baby otters eat cereal. We’ve seen Stranger Things reenacted by pugs. We’ve even watched a tiny hamster eat an equally small burrito, the most desirable of the tortilla-based foods. All that land-based cuteness is wonderful and good, but it’s possible we may have been overlooking aquatic environments as a source of adorableness. Case in point: We

Monastery adopts a homeless dog, becomes Friar Moustache (7 Photos)

1 Via FacebookSt. Francis Monastery in Cochabamba, Bolivia is named after the patron saint of dogs, so it makes sense that one of their newest members happens to be a stray dog they’ve rescued off of the streets.
