Touristing Through Monkey Country

Monkeys may seem to be cute and cuddly, but don’t forget while touristing through monkey country: they are very smart and very fast, and they might steal your stuff or try to take off your clothes; either way, the other tourists will laugh hysterically at you.

Happy Monkday :_)

The Tiniest Badass

Meet the Grasshopper mouse, a badass kung-fu master among rodents, who kills poisonous scorpions, not only with lightning-fast reflexes, but with the ability to turn the scorpion’s venom into a pain-reliever.



Happy Bun(rodent)day (|^_^|)

Cuddly Birds

This photograph is just so sweet and cute, I couldn’t help but share it.  The birds look so happy and peaceful being in a big ol’ cuddle puddle together.


Happy Flyday ~^v^~

MMA Fighter Tries to Save Baby Dolphin

When Irish MMA fighter Cathal Pendred took a morning stroll along the beach, he probably wasn’t expecting what happened next: saving a hurt baby dolphin in County Clare, Ireland.


Pendred posted pictures of the resuce to his Twitter, posting: ‘I just spent an hour in the sea at Doonbeg trying to save a baby dolphin. He was very hurt but alive and well now!’


Simon Berrow of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group said that Pendred’s “refloat” try appeared to be the right thing to do in this situation, but unfortunately, the Irish Mirror reported the dolphin had been found dead on the beach last Sunday night.  It was a valiant try.


Happy Humpday (^_^)
