Energetic baby rhino begs mom to play with him

Akeno the greater one-horned rhino calf from Chester Zoo is just a barrel of energy. He runs around with those cute little wiggly ears headbutting his mom every so often. When mom decided to lie down, Akeno bumps in to her leg, then walks around her and jumps on her back! While on top of her he gives her little nudges, one after another. When that is not working he gets off her back and nudges her in the butt and runs off. After a few more nudges in his mother's face and another run around, his mom finally gets up again. Also known as the greater one-horned rhinoceros and great Indian rhinoceros, the baby was born at the Chester Zoo, Cheshire England at around 6pm on the 3rd of May 2018. It is a male and they named him Akeno, meaning “beautiful sunrise”. Asha, his 11-year-old mom, had a 16 month pregnancy and only a 20-minute labor. The dad, Beni, is separated from these two, presumably for safety reasons.

Bearded dragon falls in love with bearded dragon stuffed animal

Joanna the (male) bearded dragon saw this stuffed animal version of a bearded dragon and took off across the room to get to it. While it looks like a fight, in all honesty, he was likely trying to mate with it. His head-bobs, black beard and biting are all social behaviors to impress female lizards, so he had himself a bit of a crush. His owner now has to keep this toy hidden to keep him from being too stressed...or too excited!

Mother Raccoon Leads Her Five Babies Across Rooftop15s

Mother Raccoon Leads Her Five Babies Across Rooftop

Although we would like to believe so, there is no real boundary from where the wilderness ends and our concrete jungle begins. The ecosystems don’t work that way. The constant expansion of our ecosystem is barging in on the millions of other ecosystems governed by wild animals, and we are bound to cross paths one way or another. We, humans, often forget that we were once part of that wilderness. We roamed the Earth picking fruits and preyed on smaller animals in order to survive. We knew when to run and when to attack, when to wait and where to mark our territory. We knew that there was only one rule in the wilderness - prey, or be preyed upon. Things have changed a lot since then. We have established cities where we build housing out of artificial materials. We bend nature to make our civilisations work, we slash through it with asphalt, connecting our homes. We have upped the scale when it comes to production, creating more and more and even more until we don’t even know if it’s enough. We like things in positive numbers, never minding the surplus of food we gather that goes to waste or the surplus of animals we hunt and they eventually go extinct. We have become the ultimate consumer, consuming the homes and lives of the other organisms sharing this wonderful planet with us. However, there are still a few resilient ones left in the wild. These animals know how to quickly adapt to all situations and to our environment. They are able to evade the human machinery and still coexist alongside it. However, we can’t always coexist with them. One of these animals are the raccoons . The only thing we really know about them is that we should steer clear of them whenever we see them because they might spread rabies. In fact, it’s their feces that might contain the parasite eggs that cause rabies. This is why it is of the utmost importance to be very careful when you detect the feces also known as latrine. If you decide to clean it up by yourself, make sure you wear all sorts of protection, from disposable gloves and rubber boots to special masks to keep your respiratory passages intact. Rabies is a viral disease that causes a plethora of health problems for humans and other mammals. The end result of a rabies infection is almost always death. The virus spreads throughout the body until it reaches the central nervous system. It causes swelling in the head that promotes violent behavior, partial immobility, uncontrolled surge of emotions and more often than not ends in unconsciousness. But, if we try not to get in raccoons way, we will find out that they all have their quirks too. They are cute and fluffy and can’t stop munching on food. They can play the role of the funniest tricksters and also the roles of a mother , a father, a sister or a brother. In this video, we can actually see a family of six trying to get on top of a roof. Leading the way to the top is mama raccoon. She is very careful with her tiny tots and makes sure each and everyone of them makes it up. The youngsters form a line and follow their mommy’s guiding and eventually get there. It really is a cuteness overload! We might not be able to touch them, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t allowed to appreciate them from afar. What do you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

Einstein's favorite places to talk at home is perched on the shower wall, in the kitchen on his drawer, and on his screened in back porch. As stated on his website, Einstein's mission statement: "To entertain and bring joy, to foster the human-parrot bond, and to convey that parrots are deserving of immeasurable amounts of patience, nurturing, and companionship."

As previously mentioned, Einstein is popular on many social media sites such as YouTube @einsteinparrot, Instagram @einsteinparrot, Twitter @einsteinparrot, and Facebook @einsteintexanparrot. Living with a parrot is a big commitment. Parrots live a very long time. A parrot such as Einstein can live to be 50 or 60 years old. Many larger parrots like Macaws can live to be 100 years old. They all require a lot of care, proper nutrition, training, time and patience. Parrots need a lot of attention and lots of toys and activities to keep from being bored. Parrots are also expensive, a large cage is an investment and plenty of play perches to spend their out of cage time. Specialized veterinarian care is also required. Most of all they require your companionship and a forever home. Many people decide after the first few years of parrot ownership that the responsibility is too great and the parrots become neglected and sometimes abandoned. When that happens they are sent to parrot rescue facilities to be adopted by a new family or some spend their lives in sanctuaries. It is often said, "Having a parrot is much like raising a 2 or 3 year old child for the rest of your life!"

Chimpanzee makes funny faces at her own reflection1m11s

Chimpanzee makes funny faces at her own reflection

This is Tojo from the Twycross Zoo in England and she loves her own reflection. You can always see her with a CD running around the enclosure. Now she had the opportunity to see herself in a camera and she made the most of it by pulling funny faces at it and then she applauds herself. She still didn't let go of her piece of CD in her hand. In 2016 a mirror self-recognition test if a non-human being has the capacity of visual self-recognition. Chimpanzees were one of the animals, that breezed through the MSR test as recognizing themselves. Twycross Zoo in Atherstone has 18 Chimps. They now have their new home. A great big indoor habitat spanning three stories high with outdoor climbing frames purposely designed to be similar to a wild environment. Chimpanzees are nearing extinction in the wild, primarily as a result of poaching and habitat loss. As some of the closest relatives to humans within the animal kingdom, it is hardly surprising they can be prone to similar ailments and diseases. Twycross Zoo is the project-lead of the Ape Heart Project; a 10 year research program to explore why many of the great apes are prone to developing heart disease, particularly in captivity. Working in close collaboration the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at Nottingham University and an International team of vets and cardiologists, the hope is to be able to provide better care for the captive great ape community across Europe. The program is European-wide and endorsed by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA).

This is Molly my 3 year old golden retriever who was a gift from my dad. She is my second golden and I just love their personalities. Always happy and Molly is your typical Walmart greater. She loves everyone including all the animals we have on the farm. She especially loves the minis she can reach them much easier. Sammy the mini that she is comforting just came into CERA’s program. He is nothing but skin and bones and scared. Molly truly has an exceptional sense of knowing when one of the animals doesn’t feel good or sad. So she very gently introduces herself. This is her job and she is very good at it as you can see. Full credit: Carolina Equine Rescue & Assistance ( https://www.facebook.com/CERARescue/ )
