Wild iguana comes running for red peppers41s

Wild iguana comes running for red peppers

Cayman Islands were originally named after the sea turtles that inhabited the area but the name was later changed to Cayman Islands due to the presence of large lizards that dominated the landscape. Early explorers were actually seeing iguanas but they mistook them for caymans, a member of the alligator family. The native iguanas are large burrowing lizards that grow to an impressive three feet in length. With large claws and formidable teeth, a full grown iguana does not have many predators. They are omnivores, eating mainly vegetables, but they will happily eat birds, rodents, insects and even other lizards if the opportunity presents itself. These iguanas have become accustomed to humans because they reside near a research station and have been handled frequently in the course of studies and research that will ultimately assist in conservation and protection of the species. They have learned that humans will not harm them and can occasionally be a source of food. This giant beast comes running when he sees brightly colored red pepper slices in a bag. Attracted to brightly colored fruits and vegetables, he knows what the man has is likely delicious. Unless provoked, these lizards are gentle and have no reason to bite or attack people. If he is picked up however, he will turn into a savage bundle of claws and teeth and he will thrash and whip his powerful tail at any threat. Rows of pointed scales make his tail an effective weapon and it is enough to deter most animals. This lizard has been tagged with colored beads through the loose skin on his neck. The combination of the color and location of the beads can be used to identify him from a distance when researchers gather data about their mating and feeding habits. This information is crucial to protecting their habitat and predicting the effect of development on their populations.

Rabbit digging deep burrow reverses out when called1m01s

Rabbit digging deep burrow reverses out when called

Chikku is a very smart rabbit. She is eight months old and lives in Garhwa, India. You wouldn't expect a rabbit to be so well trained that it would come when called, but Chikku understands her name and responds. It's even more impressive that she does this even when she is in the middle of digging a deep burrow in the earth. Chikku can be seen here as she tunnels through soft dirt. Her owner, Mayank, recorded her as she began making a burrow in the garden in front of their home. She had dug quickly through the soil and was in a tunnel a few feet deep. We can see her back end as she busily scoops out dirt and pushes it behind her. She is an adorable sight as her little tail wiggles at the other end of the tunnel. She is working furiously but Mayank calls her and whistles. Amazingly, Chikku recognizes the call and scampers out of the hole backwards. She pops out and gives Mayank a look that seems to question why he disturbed her when she was so hard at work. As if deciding that it's break time she takes a few steps away from the hole, possibly done for the moment. Chikku is a wonderful family pet, spending most of her time in the house. She sleeps in a large cage that acts as her indoor den, although she has full run of the house during the day. She loves rice and pulses, which are a type of lentil. Blended together with a hint of spice, this is a delicious meal for a well loved little rabbit. After a good feast of her favorite food, she likes to stretch out in the garden in the front of the house and have a nap. Chikku is a very happy rabbit and her antics entertain the family.

Baby Parrot Joins Human For Pool Time Fun32s

Baby Parrot Joins Human For Pool Time Fun

Quite possibly the most adorable thing gracing the internet, this precious little baby cockatoo truly makes you let out an uncontrollable “Awwwwwwww!!!!” This is a very young baby cockatoo. As far as we can tell, it seems to be a Corella Cockatoo. The little angel in this video is just so cute as it tries to get to its daddy, who is relaxing in their backyard pool. It paces the side of the pool, trying to figure out how to get to its owner, but cannot seem to quite figure it out. Daddy comes to the rescue quickly, lifting his arm up to the little doll to act as a type of a “bridge.” The baby Cockatoo climbs onto his arm and makes its way to his shoulder. It does not stay very long, though. Maybe it reached dad’s shoulder and then looked around to realize it was completely surrounded by water and decided to go back. Dad, being a loving parent, gently glides it back over to the side of the pool. Even though the video stops there, if this little baby is anything like all other cockatoos, we can tell you what would have happened next: It would have paced the side of that pool again, and wanted to climb back over there on dad’s shoulder again. Then it would have wanted to go back to the concrete, and what’s next? Lather, Rinse, Repeat! Cockatoos are known for repeating behaviors and not being able to make up their minds! They are hilarious little creatures, and they are so much fun to be around. Cockatoos and other large parrot species are extremely intelligent and intuitive. They become very attached to their primary handler, often times even mistaking the handler for their mate. Because of this, many people consider these creatures to be one person animals, and some recommend that they are the only pet in the household as well. However, if they are trained from a young age to be used to being around other pets, they tend to do just fine. Even if you have 3 dogs and 4 cats living all together with a Cockatoo, believe it or not, they will all become close buddies! That means having a hilarious party at home. Cockatoos, and most other parrot species, tend to really like water. This is actually surprising to most people because they are birds, and most do not expect birds to enjoy water so much. They do, though! The cutest part of this video to us, though, is the little “head twirl” that the little one shows us! Cockatoos are famous for these little twirls where they dip their head and spin around. There are not enough descriptive words in the English language to describe this adorable little spinning action!!! They also usually let out a little “whoop” sound effect mid-twirl, which just adds to the cuteness! Oh my, we are just overloading on warm and fuzzy feelings! There is just nothing cuter than a baby Cockatoo and its moves and sound effects!!!

Friendly Raccoons Visit Deck Every Morning For Snacks13s

Friendly Raccoons Visit Deck Every Morning For Snacks

Everyone has their morning routine. You know, get out of bed, make coffee, take a hot shower, feed your raccoons! What....what? Every morning, these friendly and adorable raccoons come up on the porch looking for their breakfast of fresh fruits . They are no longer afraid of humans, and have become a part of the family, sharing a meal together every morning on the back porch! These raccoons have almost become like pets to these people, and who wouldn't want such cute and adorable pets? They seem completely calm and domesticated, nibbling on their chopped apples and bananas. We wouldn't advise bringing them inside though. Many people think that owning a wild animal as a pet would be fun and exciting, however, it can be quite a dangerous task, bringing them inside your home and introducing them to your family. Although it is possible to domesticate a raccoon, keeping one as a pet may be illegal in your area, and you can get into a lot of trouble and be issued fines for housing them. If you are serious about raising a pet raccoon, first check with your state or provincial laws to find out if you are even permitted to have one. it is advised to obtain one from a qualified breeder, which are not easy to find. Raccoons are mischievous creatures by nature, spending most of their time scavenging, playing and generally creating havoc wherever they go. They have sharp claws and sharp teeth and are unpredictable creatures, which is why it is usually inadvisable and illegal to have them as pets. Raccoons will completely destroy your home if left unattended, and are not good with other animals such as dogs and cats. They may seem fine and relaxed one minute and completely out of control and panicky the next. They are still wild animals, and should always be treated like ones. Raccoons have large appetites and tend to eat a very large variety of food. Here we see them eating fresh fruits with their hands like humans, but they will eat just about anything the come across. They will eat things like dog food, various types of insects, vegetables, fruits, and protein sources like chicken. They will also eat anything that they find in the garbage can or out of your cooler. Having flexible thumbs helps them get into most containers and they have even been known to be able to open up doors and come into your garage. Keeping food in a fridge won't even keep out a racoon if they get the smell of delicious food in there. Feeding these raccoons every morning might seem like a good idea, however, if they come for their breakfast one morning and there is nothing left for them, they might retaliate and create damage or try and get into the house through the screen door and make an attempt to feed themselves. Wild Life Authorities have caution against feeding wild animals because they might become overly intrusive and dependent on humans as a food source, loosing their natural ability for hunt for food themselves.

Baby goat makes adorable sounds while drinking her bottle

Hamish's Farm in Keene Ontario is a wonderful place, home to a variety of animals. All of them act more like pets than farm animals. The goats are no different and they wander around the farm acting a lot like puppies. Violet, the Lamanche goat, is a special breed of goat with long legs and short ears. She was adopted by Hamish’s family when she was very young so they bottle fed her from an early age. She has become very accustomed to an early breakfast and she understands the sight of the bottle means food. She eagerly attacks Alana and the bottle, demanding the milk as fast as possible. She also guzzles it as fast as possible and the sound she makes as she does so is simply adorable. Violet follows people around on the farm and runs and plays with the dogs. She seems to actually believe that she is a dog herself. The dogs have accepted her as one of their own, and so have the goats. Violet has the best of both worlds. Baby goats are happy creatures and they are as likely to bounce joyfully as they are to walk. They are energetic and entertaining and one of the cutest creatures alive. Hamish's Farm is home to horses, cows, sheep, goats, donkeys, peacocks and an outrageous cockatoo named Syd. Of all the animals on the farm, Syd seems to be the one in charge. He fears nobody, including the dogs and makes more noise than all the other animals combined. Tragically, the barn and the house burned to the ground in a fire in November 2016, but Hamish and his mother Getrude managed to save all of the animals and they continued running the farm while they rebuilt. The animals are still thriving and the farm is nearly back to normal. And Violet is growing quickly!
