Cats and Dogs Rivalry at its finest

5 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What happened to the good all days when dogs did what they were supposed to do, chase cats? I’ve seen dogs restrain themselves from attacking felines because of their masters but this display of unusual friendship between a cat and a dog is a little hard to take? what’s next, hamsters sleeping next to snakes?

We’ve seen piglets taken in by a dogs, tiger pups raised by a monkey, it won’t be long until we see kittens nursed by dogs…what a world!

Swimming with Tigers

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

At the Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species in South Carolina anyone can witness how beautiful tiger handlers swim in a big pool together with the big cats. During their studies here, animal experts learned that tigers and human develop a stronger relationship in the water and that the cats are easier to handle, since they don’t stand on their back legs.

Unlike other cats, tigers are great swimmers and they enjoy spending as much time as possible in the water. However, because they slowly grow into dangerous killing machines, the handlers only swim with them until they turn one year old. Dr. Bhagavan Antle says he has got nto the water with full-grown 15-year-old tigers and ligers (cross between a lion and a tiger), but he can’t put his staff in the same kind of danger.

Cholla – The Painting Horse

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It’s official, animals are talented painters, if the painting elephants weren’t proof enough, now Cholla, a painting horse shows his skill.

mustang-quarter horse with incredible painting talent, Cholla‘s works have recently been accepted into an art exhibition that will take place in Montigliano Veneto, Italy. He will be competing against 1,770 renowned artists from all over the world, and we’re talking humans, so yes, this horse has enough talent to match up to human artists. He won’t be able to claim the cash prizes if he wins but he will get a special mention.

Cholla‘s career began when his owner, Renee Chambers, bought some water colors, mixed them up, glued a piece of paper to a fence, and handed him the brush. Cholla grabbed it, started stroking and he never stopped, in fact he got better and better and now he’s a star in the USA. In case you were wondering, Cholla made the transition from the fence to the easel without hesitation, like a true artist.

The organizers of the Italian art exhibition said they were stunned when they found out the artist of the artworks they accepted was of the equine species but respected his talent even more.

Karate Monkey

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Not only people want to learn kung-fu and karate. Humans strive to learn the monkey-style kung-fu while monkeys try to learn our karate. It looks like this little monkey is on the right track, it’s even trying our cuisine. Seems only normal, since we eat bananas every day.

Unusual Display of Motherhood

7 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

There have been many cases in which animals took in cubs that didn’t belong to them, or even their species, like this adorable little pig. But I’ve never seen a monkey taking so well to a couple of tiger cubs before.

After Hurricane Hannah ravaged the state of South Carolina, the tigers of one of the zoos started acting very aggressive and were considered a danger to their young. So these two white tiger cubs were separated from their mother and adopted by a 2-year-old chimpanzee. As you can see from the photos he’s really taking parenting seriously. I wonderhow their relationship will evolve…

The Roller Turtle

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I remember when I used to skate around with my roller-blades, but sadly, this little turtle can’t take his off.

A terrible accident in which it lost one of it front legs forced this turtle to spend the rest of its days on a roller-skate. It took a while to get used to it but now she’s always the first to arrive when food is served.

Even Turtles Love Punk

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

And there’s no better proof than the fellow in these photos, he has a much better punk hairdo than I’ve seen on most of the human members of the punk movement. Photographed in Mary River, near the town of Kenilvors, Australia, this blue-eyed turtle sports what looks like an outrageous Iroquois hair-style. But in reality, the green “hair” on the turtle‘s head is just green algae that grow parasitically.

I bet any punk-rocker would be proud to have this lovely turtle as a pet.

Animal Love Caught on Camera

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

It was a hot autumn day in Texas when Fate decided to bring them together. Two Rattle Snakes looking for love suddenly found each other and the rest is history. As you can see from the photos, these two look beautiful together and just can’t keep their scales off one another. After the traditional courtship the two Rattlers left together to look for a private spot to…get to know each other a little better. Whoever said snakes were cold blooded should bite their tongue right now.

Why Stingrays Sting People

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Well mainly because most of us are ignorant apes that only think of themselves…How dumb and cruel do you have to be to abuse a poor stingray that way? And look at the girls loving every minute of it, taking pictures with the “monkey” as if they’re at the circus. Why doesn’t it sting one of them, see if they keep smiling like idiots?

What’s wrong with these photos?

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I mean shouldn’t things be the other way around? And if that had been a bull I would have understood…sort of, but that’s a freaking cow mounting a poor old woman. And look at that other “cow” just sitting there enjoying the show instead and rushing to her fellow human’s aid. So much for poor innocent cows huh?

Dangerous Snake Hunting

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I don’t exactly know where this kind of snake hunting is practiced but my money’s on Australia. I tried to find some info besides the photos but I couldn’t find anything; if you know more, please share.

Wherever they’re from, these snake hunters have balls the size of freakin’ Jupiter, I wouldn’t chase a snake in its lair even if you paid me all the money in the world, and armed with only a piece of leather around my arm and a small fire. Look at the photos and judge for yourself if this is courage or insanity…

Scientists use sea-lions to fight global warming

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

There’s been a lot of speculations regarding the melting of arctic ice due to global warming, which spells disaster for all living beings, so scientists have decided to conduct some serios investigations and learn if there’s any real danger.

Sea-lions will play a serious part in the gathering of important data about the status of the ice, water temperature and climate change. A few specimens have been caught on the coast of South Georgia and a sensor with a special antenna has been strapped to their heads. When the animals swim in Arctic waters scientists will receive information vital to our survival.

The Elephant Painters

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I always believed elephants were incredible animals, but I never imagined they could something as extraordinary as painting, hell I have opposable thumbs and I can’t paint like that.

The elephants at the National Elephant Institute in Thailand have a particular skill that others animals and some humans don’t posses, they can actually pick up a brush and paint on a canvas. Thai elephants in particular are born artists, you often see them pick up a stick and start noodling in the dirt, and when properly trained they turn into genuine artists with a brush. Take a look at the photos and video and see for yourselves.

Why people fear the Anaconda

THE PHOTOS ARE NOT FOR THE WEAK-OF-HEART!

Everyone knows the size of the Anaconda snake and we all know it’s capable of swallowing a person whole, but there was no visual proof of this. Well this is about to change as you scroll down this page, that lump in the middle of the Anaconda is not an animal, I’ll tell you this much…
