Baby Otter Alert!

Meet the Bronx Zoo’s newest resident: an adorable new Asian small-clawed otter pup. This Spring birth is especially noteworthy as Asian small clawed otters occupy a shrinking range in Southeast Asia, specifically in India, Taiwan, the Philippines, and parts of southern China. The species is currently classified as “vulnerable” by IUCN. This bebeh otter is currently classified as “squeetastic” by me. ^_^

Thank-you YouTube Channel Wildlife Conservation Society for this adorable video!

Belka the Cat, Mother of Squirrels

Two baby squirrels rescued by local police in Poltava, Ukraine have found shelter and love in the unlikely form of a cat taking on the role of mother. Oddly enough, the cat’s named is “Belka”, which in Ukrainian, translates to “squirrel.” I guess it was just meant to be. ^_^

Happy World Penguin Day!

Today is World Penguin Day, and to celebrate, we’re traveling to Detroit, Michigan, to the Polk Penguin Conservation Center at the Detroit Zoo.

 

The 33,000-square-foot penguin center is the largest facility for penguins in the world! It features a 326,000-gallon, 25-foot-deep aquatic area where visitors can watch more than 80 penguins of four species explore their habitat. An underwater gallery and two acrylic underwater tunnels provide views as the birds swim above, around and below. The exhibit just opened on April 18th too, just in time for World Penguin Day!

 

So sit back and relax, as we enjoy this tour of the Polk Penguin Conservation Center, narrated by Detroit Zoo CEO, Ron Kagan.

Thank-you, YouTube Channel MLive for this informative video!

Me-ow… It’s Me

The East Bay SPCA in Northern California has created “Meow“, an adorable and frankly tear-jerking parody of Adele‘s song “Hello” that speaks from a cat’s point of view.

The music video features adoptable kittens. The East Bay SPCA video promotes cat adoption while telling a silly, yet touching story of a little girl, woman and older gentleman’s visit in hopes of adopting a kitten. The kittens promise their potential adopters that they will do whatever it takes to be the best pets ever!

Every kitten that appears in the video was adopted from the East Bay SPCA. Thank-you YouTube Channel East Bay SPCA for this touching video!

 

Starring:
Coral, Cantaloupe and Calvin (the black kitten)
Brian L. Koponen – Older Gentleman
Laila – Young Woman
Lana – Little Girl & (her real) Dad

Crew:
Director/Camera: Hai-Lam Phan
Producer: Dawn Poomee
Production Assistant: Yajnaseni Das Vincent
Music Production: Douglas Widick
Singer: Amanda Shechtman (amandashechtman.com)

Lyrics:
Meow, it’s me.
I’m the cat / who’s your new best friend, / that you have yet to meet.
I am fluffy,/ and so cute.
They say that I don’t really smell, and
My purrs can do much healing.

Meow, can you see it?
We’ll be cuddling, / dreaming about all the fun we will have.
We can catch the laser, / and let it go,
And I think you so beautiful/ when I wake you up in the morning.
There’s such a future, between us,
If you just take me home…

Meow from the Inside
I promise you that I’ll try…
To keep you / toasty /in the coldest of nights.
And to give you/ a part / of what is me.

meow from the Inside
I promise you that I’ll try…
To be there/ for you/ in the worst of times
But you just have to /give me/ a chance to go home, to go home.

Meooooww…take me home.
Meooooww…take me home.
Meooooww…take me home.
Take me home.

 

Happy Caturday =^_^=

Toucan Saved by 3D Printing

A chestnut-eared aracari, a type of Toucan, had his life saved thanks to the ingenuity of scientists, surgeons and a 3D printing artist. Tuc Tuc the Toucan was found injured on a street in Brazil missing a large portion of his lower beak. Cicero Moraes took a mold of the toucan’s beak and then got to work 3D printing a new one. It took two hours to surgically attach the prosthetic beak to the bird. Tuc Tuc wouldn’t be able to survive without receiving a new beak, and now he’ll live out the rest of his days at a comfy Brazilian animal shelter.

Thank-you YouTube Channel Inside Edition for this marvelous news story.

A Skyhigh Look at Humpbacks in Hawaii

These shots of humpback whales are amazing! The filmographer flew over the incredibly clear waters surrounding Hawaii, to capture one the most complete looks at humpback whales in their natural environment I have ever seen: swimming, playing (two whales look they high-five each other at one point), and socializing with family and with dolphins!

Thank-you YouTube Channel Uheheu for this amazing footage!

 

Happy Humpday (^_^)
