Happy belated world penguin day! Yeah, yeah, yeah I’m a day late but my crippling migraine kept me off the internet last night. Penguins are amazing! But many people are very misinformed about penguins. They imagine a bunch of birds living in the Antarctic being eaten by seals and polar bears. Wrong!
It’s a zebra! No! It’s an antelope! No! It’s a giraffe! No! It’s an okapi!
There are not a lot of animals as strange as the okapi, with its black and white stripes, 12 inch long purple-prehensile tongue and its red goo it secretes from it’s skin.
Happy hump day! Once again we are half way through the week and I’d like to celebrate with another hump day post! Lets talk about Bonobos, or Pan paniscus.
A very warm welcome to the world to Belia, a baby Bornean Orangutan who entered the world this past Saturday.
Meet the Pangolin, often referred to as the scaly anteater. This cute arboreal animal has no teeth and sleeps all day. It reminds me of Sandshrew the pokémon and has adorable little eyes that see into your very soul. It’s an odd little animal that desperately needs your help
On April 13, 2013 roughly 2000 frozen pangolins were found on a Chinese fishing vessel that had run aground.
Happy Earth Day! How fantastic that we dedicate a whole day to acknowledging all of the damage we do to our planet, it almost makes it seem okay that we ignore it the other 364 days of the year.
It is beginning to sound like Indonesia is moving to approve a proposal to un-protect about 4 million acres of pristine rainforest on the island of Sumatra.
Sloths seem to be all the rage lately and from the point of a (former/future) zookeeper I can say that I am less than impressed. But this sloth is pretty stinking cute.
The island of Molokai, Hawai’i is not where one would think to look for the most unique zebra on the planet, but that is where Zoe the golden zebra was born.
