Adorable otter loves his fresh bedding1m02s

Adorable otter loves his fresh bedding

This is the adorable Asian short clawed otter, also called the oriental small clawed otter from the Twycross Zoo in England. Coming out of his den he went straight for his new fresh bedding, a pile of straw. He shows the love for it like us humans do when we just can’t wait to snuggle up in our freshly washed bedding. As a human poll suggested it was first on the list of things that made you feel good. It is no different with this cute Otter. He just loves to snuggle and wiggle in his straw and in the process he probably leaves his scent for the others to tell them: “This is my bed!” Just look at his face, he is really loving it. Looking up into the camera in between, before he puts is head in to straw and wiggles it about. Once he gets himself in a great sleeping position he quickly dozes off, curled up in a ball on his straw. Sleep tight, sweet dreams little Otter.

Orphaned baby monkey doesn't want caretaker to leave33s

Orphaned baby monkey doesn't want caretaker to leave

This adorable Vervet Monkey was orphaned and rescued at a very early age, and had to grow up and a wildlife center. She will be released back into the wild, some day, but in the meantime, she needs a foster mom, which is what her caretaker is to her. In order to be able to return to the wild, she can't be humanized, which means that she can't be used to people, or she would approach them once she's free, and it would result in her either getting captured and kept as a pet, or killed, so her foster mom can't do anything a monkey wouldn't do, such as talking to her. But since keeping her company is required, the caretaker sits with her for hours, but even after all that time, the baby monkey still doesn't want her to leave, and keeps jumping on her shoulder, and screams and she finally manages to.

Polite talking crow can't befriend grumpy squirrel47s

Polite talking crow can't befriend grumpy squirrel

Competition at the backyard bird feeder is a natural thing. Squirrels chase each other and birds also squabble for their share of the food. But a wild, talking crow tried another approach when he landed on a branch beside the peanut supply. The talking crow was patiently waiting in line behind another crow. The first crow took three peanuts in his mouth before flying off. A red squirrel quickly dashed onto the peanut platform ahead of the waiting crow. The crow took the polite approach and greeted the squirrel with a friendly "hello". Believing that all was cordial and that the squirrel might be in the mood to share, he landed on the edge of the feeder platform. Ever so politely, he repeated "hello" as he moved in for a treat. The squirrel didn't seem to care that the crow was polite, or that he was in line first. He promptly launched himself at the talking crow in a very unfriendly manner. He then grabbed a peanut in his mouth and made a quick exit. Quickly stashing his peanut, the saucy red squirrel returned to the feeder for another. This time, the talking crow flew in and landed on the branch, startling the squirrel. The furry little fellow ran right over the top of the camera with his peanut in his jaws as he made his escape. Ever the gentleman, the crow offered an apologetic "hello" as he hopped onto the platform and finally got his snack. This bird feeder is located behind a home in Millbrook, Ontario, that is owned by a compassionate veterinarian. The animals who come to it for food are completely wild and free, but a family of orphaned crows fell out of a tree in the neighborhood in 2011. The parents were unable to care for them and the vet and her family took them in, raising them in as natural a way as possible. The crows learned to say a few words in a voice that resembled a parrot. One of their words was "hello". They greeted their human family with this word each time they flew in for a meal. They would also repeat this if the family spoke to the crows. The crows soon became wild again and integrated with a local crow family, even flying south with them that first winter. They return each spring and can occasionally be heard in the trees or at the feeder, saying 'hello". The family is relieved and thrilled each time they hear this because it tells them that their crows are still alright. But it was a great surprise to hear the crows trying to speak with other wildlife, such as this squirrel. Incredibly intelligent, crows have complex language skills and understanding. It is obvious that these crows even understand that this word "hello" is a greeting. But despite the impressive manners and friendly efforts, it doesn't seem to impress the local squirrels that a crow can speak "human".

Gentle giant bull politely begs for treats59s

Gentle giant bull politely begs for treats

This is Gus. He's a big bull with a big appetite, and he loves bread most of all. What's surprising about him is that he's a fully intact male bull who wighs 2,000 pounds, but he's as friendly and gentle as a pet dog. By nature, bulls are usually grumpy, aggressive and not to be trusted. It's never wise to turn your back on one or to put yourself in a position where you could be injured. They have enough power and strength to do a lot of damage in a very short time if they chose to. But Gus is an exceptional bull. He was raised on a farm where he had a lot of interaction with people right from birth. Gus developed an appetite for grains of all sorts, especially bread. This is not unusual for cattle, and Cornell University even did an extensive study to determine the effects of feeding cattle bread and other baked goods. The result was that the animals did very well on a diet that was very high in bread. Gus' taste is not that unusual. What is unusual is the way he will approach someone for a slice of doughy goodness. He literally begs like a dog would beg for a slice of sirloin. Chris is meeting Gus for the first time. The farmer who owns Gus is fine with him having visitors, and with him being hand fed. Chris has been given some instructions on how to approach this enormous animal, and Chris, a biology student, has extensive experience with animals of all kinds. Armed with a loaf of multigrain bread, Chris is all set to make a new friend. Predictably, Gus saw the opportunity for a treat and started a fast walk toward Chris. It's one thing to warn somebody that he's a very big boy and another thing to see it for yourself. Chris laughed nervously as Gus closed the gap and opened his cavernous mouth. A tongue, longer than seems possible, shot out and wrapped around the slice of bread like a large hand. The slice of bread completely disappeared and seemed to be gone with three quick chews. In this video, we see Chris shoveling bread into Gus as fast as he can. In comparison, these slices of bread would be like a cracker for us, and an entire loaf is a reasonable serving for Gus. Although Gus is enjoying the breed immensely, he doesn't get pushy. He sniffs at Chris and at the bag and he politely waits to be hand fed each slice. He even allows Chris to pat his head throughout the encounter, as if he is a large puppy. Gus likes people and he's friendly enough, but he's quick to return to the herd to graze with the other cows when he sees that the treats are gone.

Newborn foal wants to play with nervous German Shepherd50s

Newborn foal wants to play with nervous German Shepherd

Felix is a newborn foal, born three weeks ago on a sunny morning on a beautiful farm near Peterborough, Ontario. He is the son of a mare named Fling who has an exceptional disposition. Relaxed and calm, confident and friendly, she has taught her baby to be the same. He approaches life, as well as people and animals, with curiosity and confidence. Jemma, the farm dog, is less confident, and she is nervous as the foal approaches her to make friends. He's only a baby, but he is large and moves quickly. She is understandably cautious when he tries to sniff her. Felix is playful and he adopts the pose that says he wants a game of chase, or he'd like Jemma to join him in bouncing around the meadow. Jemma decides she's not in the mood and she makes a rapid retreat, startling Felix slightly. Looking a little confused and rejected, he stares after her and then goes to his mother for the emotional security and a little milk that she offers. Felix is still nursing, and although he will imitate her as she grazes and eats grass, he really doesn't understand why he's doing it and he isn't even able to digest the grass yet. Felix will spend the next few months close by Fling's side as he discovers the world around him and learns what is safe and what should be avoided. With a little persistence, Felix will be able to start a friendship with Jemma. She is also a very relaxed and friendly dog once she gets over her initial hesitation. Felix is a lucky foal to live on this gorgeous farm. He shares the meadows and pastures with other horses, cows, and dogs. He is well cared for and well loved and he will have plenty of exposure to animal loving people like Alison and Glenn, who own this little piece of paradise.

Terrified alpaca runs screaming for safety near herd dogs1m00s

Terrified alpaca runs screaming for safety near herd dogs

Alpacas are interesting animals that closely resemble the llama. They look very similar, although much smaller. Both are part of the camel family. Originating from South America, usually Peru, they are becoming more common in North America on farms that raise them for wool production. We can see these alpacas engaging in play fighting or dominance behavior. It appears to be a fun game, and it may be a form of play, but the goal is for one male to immobilize the head and neck of the weaker alpaca to show superior strength and dominance. This play fighting became more aggressive and some of the alpacas actually began biting half-heartedly at the others. The black alpaca began running away and the brown one decided to chase it. Relentless, it followed the submissive alpaca even to the far corners of the pasture. The brown alpaca became very distressed and started screaming. This evoked no sympathy from the brown alpaca. If the goal was dominance, this only made the situation worse. Eventually, two muremma sheepdogs reacted to the noise. Protective of the herd, they will stand guard and confront any person or predator that tries to enter the pasture. Tall and strong, they are a force to reckoned with, but they seemed slightly confused about what to do with fighting alpacas. They wandered among the herd and looked on curiously. The black alpaca ran for the protection of the dogs, much like a younger sibling running for his parents when the older sibling begins tormenting him. In this case, the presence of the dogs was enough to deter the aggressive alpaca and the fighting stopped. It's not unusual to see alpacas, or any other social animal behaving in a way that helps establish dominance or pecking order. In fact, it's a natural part of herd social structure. But it does seem very unusual to hear a large alpaca running through a pasture screaming in such a loud voice. Watching this, you couldn't help but feel sorry for him and want to step in to help put the bully in his place.

Parrot Tells Cockatiel She's Cute And Then Asks For Kiss

In fact, love's fundamental science is developmentally old. Oxytocin and vasopressin, the hormones most nearly connected with mammalian holding, have the close indistinguishable avian analogs of mesotocin and vasotocin, which shape the communications of zebra finch couples. Flying creatures in like manner have the fundamental reward-framework neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Fowls probably won't have much in the method for effectively unmistakable outward appearances, yet their organic chemistry's symphonic chain responses play out in neurological structures that advanced right off the bat in life's history, well before the cerebral cortex itself.

Propagation, developments, everyday rhythms, correspondence, and insight. Winged animals discover their direction normally, while people have needed to find and develop. Twenty years after their romance they will settle with a similar accomplice. That is something to take as an example. For quite a long time, we have viewed ourselves as better than the various animals who share this planet. Remote from nature, we think we know everything and abuse the individuals from the set of all animals as our inferiors.

Horse's Irregular Facial Expression Indicates Health Problems1m25s

Horse's Irregular Facial Expression Indicates Health Problems

We are sure you will agree that horses are one of the most majestic and beautiful animals on the planet. Despite the fact that they can easily crush us with their sized and immensely powerful hooves and therefore inspire fear, horses are very tender and beautiful creatures. And they show their tenderness in a wonderful way. Many people love their horses, take care of them and provide them with a natural life of the highest quality. But they cannot understand how horses communicate their gratitude, affection or even convey their reaction back to people who handle them. Just like a cat that folds on its lap, or a puppy that licks its nose, the horse has ways of saying that they love you. Horses are amazing animals and extremely perceptive to their surroundings. They are a prey animal whose evolution has helped them develop highly tuned senses that are able to pick up subtle communicators and body language to help them survive. When you stand among a herd of horses, you will see that they respond to every eye movement, ear flicker, or tail swipe of the other horses. And they read and respond to our non-verbal cues and body language too. They are so sensitive that even your breathing will give them clues about your mood and intentions. If we could be as perceptive as horses, we would no doubt process information in a way that would allow us far greater communication with each other. This horse is Prinz Harry, known as Harry, and he was a racehorse in his former life. He collapsed on the track several years ago due to cardiac arrhythmia and the diagnosis changed his life forever. He found his way to a very unique farm, The Mane Intent, near Peterborough, Ontario, where he lives with 9 other horses . Together, they work with people in a variety of situations to work miracles. They assist with leadership skills, experiential learning, and sometimes healing after traumatic or troubling events. Harry has definitely found his calling here. Harry is working with Dave, a police officer who found his way to the Mane Intent by coincidence. What is truly remarkable is that when they became paired up to work together, Dave was also struggling with cardiac arrhythmia, exactly as Harry had. Dave was facing his own challenges as a result and he was trying to come to terms with how the condition would affect his life. As they stood quietly in the ring, Harry made his way over to Dave and he began to show his teeth and tilt his head in what appears to be several exaggerated yawns. Anyone who understands horses can tell you that this is believed to be a purging of stress or tension. It may be a release of their own tension or the reaction to the tension that they sense from those around them. It's an unusual behavior which is meant to have great significance in an interaction such as this. Dave is a serious animal lover who came to The Mane Intent simply for the human/animal connection that the farm offers, but what he left with was a new outlook. After seeing that Harry had found a higher purpose and a beautiful life on this gorgeous farm, Dave realized that obstacles can sometimes be life's way of moving you in a better direction.
