Adorable baby cows become fascinated with action camera

These calves are living the good life on a beautiful farm in Millbrook, Ontario. Known as ethical farming, the cows are free to roam over lush pastures with ponds and trees and a rolling expanse of meadow full of green grass and wild flowers. The herd is small and the cows socialize well. This farm is part of a growing trend to avoid veal as a food source due to the controversial and unfair treatment of calves in the process. They also provide top notch veterinary care and maintain excellent herd health. The cows are treated very well and they enjoy a very natural life. A GoPro camera was left on the ground near a gate in the meadow to see what the calves would do. Naturally curious, and much more intelligent than people give them credit for, the calves quickly made their way over to see what this new object was. They completely understood that it was different when it was placed and they wasted no time in checking it out. They were hesitant to approach closely, with Fiona being the bravest of the bunch. She did make her way up close and had a sniff and a few licks before moving back. Then the other calves in her herd followed her lead. they gathered in a line and looked curiously, taking turns sniffing and licking the camera. Their snorts and grunts can be heard as they put their big nostrils right up close and breathe heavily. Eventually, they decide that there is nothing spectacular about this object and they move back. An older cow then came up to have a sniff as well. As inquisitive as a young child, these calves show their curiosity in the most adorable way. But, in doing so, they are more than just cute, they are demonstrating that they are actually capable of fairly complex thought. If we understood cows better and actually looked closely, we might see a lot of good reasons for supporting those farms that treat the cows properly, as opposed to supporting factory farming. They are easy to find almost anywhere in North America. Another bonus is that these farms require less antibiotics and and disease control efforts. Direct trade with the farmers also just makes sense.

Porcupine has funny interaction with man in the woods25s

Porcupine has funny interaction with man in the woods

Porcupines are slow moving and docile animals. They don't harm anyone and they are no threat to other animals, unless they are attacked. Armed with thousands of sharp quills, their only defense is to bristle their quills and swing their bodies to jab an attacker in the mouth. Contrary to the widespread myth, they cannot shoot their quills. They can't even move quickly so they would be easy prey without them. Their natural reaction is usually to stand their ground or to slowly walk away. They will climb a tree if given the chance. Porcupines eat plants and bark, scraping off the tough outer bark to get at the soft and tasty inner bark of trees. They will also chew on wood, especially if it has been coated in salt, such as the posts at the side of a highway. They are adorable creatures with a furry face that resembles a beaver. Even their large teeth are similar to those of a beaver. Humans don't normally get a close look because these animals are shy and will retreat or move higher in a tree. Tom was out in the wilderness near Sault St. Marie when he came across this very fat porcupine happily chewing on a sapling. Tom was taking his dogs for a walk on the trail, but saw this creature in the tree. He secured his dogs and then decided to walk over and see the porcupine close up. Expecting that it would climb or walk away to safety, he believed his approach would prevent a meeting with his dogs. Instead of retreating, the porcupine looked at him calmly and then chattered his teeth. Tom is a friendly fellow and he began recording and speaking with the porcupine in a hilarious fashion, asking for a repeat of the teeth chattering. As if happy to oblige, the porcupine actually did what was asked. Tom, ever the gentleman, thanked the porcupine for being so agreeable and ended the recording. The result is a very unusual conversation and exchange between a man and a wild porcupine.

It was decorated with cranberries wedged into the sprouts. Nuts and popcorn would of made nice decorations too. Einstein enjoys tearing and shredding the stalk more than he enjoys eating it.

It does spoil and you you don't want any bacteria growing. Einstein the Talking Texan Parrot is a silly, smart, and popular parrot who loves to talk and entertain!

Einstein's website, is designed to inform you about the care of parrots and also entertain you. 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!" Music Credit: Twirly Tops by The Green Orbs

Tiny frog visits tiny pub, gets "toad-ally" wasted!

Watch this hilarious clip of a tiny gray tree frog drinking at the local pub. Never fear though, he is A-okay. He is simply shedding. Yes, like dogs and cats, frogs shed as well as they outgrow their skin. They then eat the excess skin as a safety defense strategy which would help protect them from predators in the wild.

Lion cub playfully wrestles with hyena pup41s

Lion cub playfully wrestles with hyena pup

These rescued animals were together to keep each other company, and have no idea they're not even the same species; to them, they're the same, and on the inside, they are: two babies who want nothing more than play! Except that the hyena is a bit more energetic and eager to play-fight! How adorable is that?! Lions and hyenas in general, occupy the same geographic range, in the African continent, although different species of hyenas inhabit different areas, and the Striped Hyena (Hyaena hyaena) is also native to the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent, where lions no longer occur. Since they are both carnivores and top predators, they are always competing for food, making them enemies in the wild. Although lions are three to four times larger than hyenas, the teamwork of a hyena clan can often intimidate a lion away. Both species are also extremely territorial and aggressive when it comes to one another, killing each other's young when given the chance. In 1999, a two-week-war between the two species was recorded in Ethiopia, leaving 35 hyenas and six lions dead. However, don't always have to fight each for food. As we all know, hyenas are also scavengers, which means that they don't always hunt their own food, despite being perfectly capable of doing so; sometimes they eat the leftovers of someone else's kill. So a lion may hunt his meal, eat all the parts that he likes, and then abandon it; the hyenas then come and eat the rest, without having to fight the lion, that already has a full stomach. As top predators, they don't have predators of their own, except for humans, who keep decreasing their populations. But these two innocent babies are completely ignorant of that old rivalry, and proceed to do what children do better: play!
