Wild deer thoroughly enjoy storytime in the forest

There is a protected forest in northern Ontario where a herd of wild deer are protected from harm here and are safe to wander freely, without being in danger from hunters. Even predators are scarce here. If you wander in the woods you will almost definitely see wild deer roaming and foraging for food. If you sit quietly for long enough, the deer might even wander over to look curiously at you as they graze and explore. This animal lover was curious to see how the deer would react if he read them a story and there seemed to be nothing more appropriate than "Bambi". Although nervous about being so close to a person, the deer were definitely curious about the book. They moved closer to get a better look and seemed mesmerized by what was being read to them. What was very unusual is that the fawns were comfortable enough to also come close. These fawns are so young that they still have their spots. Fawns usually hide in the grass or behind trees, closely watching their mother from a distance. At one point even a large buck with antlers wanders close enough to hear the tale. Judging by their reaction, these deer definitely enjoy storytime!

Eager Young Deer Really Wants To Play With Humans2m02s

Eager Young Deer Really Wants To Play With Humans

Every animal wants to play and why would a fawn be any different? One young deer wandered into this family’s back yard, where two brothers noticed the baby animal in the shades on the other side of the house. Of course, the older brother would send the younger one to investigate, because that is their job on this world and Tyler obliges. The boy isn’t quite sure if he can trust the wild animal, so he approaches the fawn slowly, but the moment he gets in the same shade as the animal, the fawn loses its marbles and starts running around itself in circles. Tyler reacts like anyone of us would, running back to the safety of his brother. But big brothers are trouble makers and this one even encourages his baby brother to go back to the fawn. It’s only behaving like a dog that hasn’t seen its human buddy for ages, nothing bad about that. The kid says that the fawn didn’t hiss nor growl when he approached him, just started jumping around on joy of the new acquaintance. It sure looks like it was searching for a buddy and it found two! This young deer was also very eager to start playing with his newfound friends at the park. Fonzi even got to play some soccer with his friends, losing its wits at the sight of the ball!

Couple in canoe have unforgettable conversation with curious loon1m36s

Couple in canoe have unforgettable conversation with curious loon

Loons are a very beautiful sight for cottagers throughout North America. They are a gorgeous bird with a graceful presence while on water or under it. Extremely capable swimmers, they can catch fish using their webbed feet for propulsion. They are also extremely strong fliers, able to migrate up to 600 miles in a single day. Because they are designed for swimming, their feet are located so far to the rear that they are barely able to walk on land. This, together with their high body mass, makes it impossible for them to take off from land. They must run across the surface of the water into the wind to get liftoff. It is this clumsiness on land that got them their name. Their bright white plumage on their underbelly and neck make these birds unmistakable, but the most striking and recognizable characteristic of the loon is their haunting call which echoes for miles across lakes and brings chills to those who hear them. These two canoeists, out for a quiet paddle and a few photographs, were fortunate enough to meet up with a young loon who showed very little fear. He called out with his signature howl and watched them as they drifted towards him. When they did their best to imitate his call, he actually swam much closer to investigate. He watched them curiously, preened his feathers, stuck his face under water to look for fish and answered them back each time they called. It seemed that he was as curious about them as they were about him. Kristy, at the front of the canoe, was able to snap the pictures of a lifetime as he posed and conversed with them. The loon dove repeatedly but always surfaced nearby, venturing back each time to get close to the canoe. Being so close to a curious wild loon is an unforgettable experience.

Tidy Orangutan mother puts toys away1m00s

Tidy Orangutan mother puts toys away

The Twycross Zoo is having an enrichment day for the animals by throwing lots of colorful balls and some boxes into the enclosure. The orangutan mom with her newborn baby in her arms decides it looks all a bit messy and, in classic mom fashion, she begins to tidy up after her offspring. She starts cleaning up by putting all the balls back into the box. Still with her newborn in her arms, she then carries the boxes with the balls in her mouth all the way up to the top of her climbing frame. She only drops one red ball! What a champ.

Does and fawns come to investigate man crunching an apple1m06s

Does and fawns come to investigate man crunching an apple

There is a forest in northern Ontario where deer are protected from hunting and they have lost their fear of people. Sitting quietly in the woods, a patient person is likely to get a close look at a few. But sitting very still with a crunchy apple will evoke enough curiosity that the deer come to smell and investigate. This man sat very still on a log until the deer were close enough to see what he had. He then carefully tossed a few pieces to them and they became even more curious. What was the most unusual about this encounter was that the does brought their fawns out of hiding as well. Does often leave their fawns in long grass or between logs while they forage for food. They return several times each day to feed them. Using their tails, ears and other subtle body language, they can communicate with their young to tell them when things appear to be safe. These fawns are curious and they also approach to see what is going on. They are not yet weaned and have no interest in apples, but they are comfortable following their mother around while she nibbles on some pieces tossed in the grass. Few things are as peaceful as sitting in woods surrounded by wild deer!

Bizarre tropical fish has amazing survival adaptation1m06s

Bizarre tropical fish has amazing survival adaptation

This Jumbo Gourami is a bizarre fish that has adapted to a very specific environment in several amazing ways. Native to waters of southeast Asia, such as Borneo and India, the creature lives in stagnant ponds and rivers where oxygen content is lower than most fish could survive. As a result, a special organ has developed in these fish that cover and partially replace conventional gill tissue. Amazingly, the fish is able to breathe air at the surface, similar to mammals. Because of its reduced gill function, however, the Jumbo Gourami must have access to surface air or it will drown. Additionally, eggs must be near the surface of the water so that developing fry can obtain sufficient oxygen. The male produces a very unique mucous in his mouth that he uses to trap air bubbles to construct a nest. He will add sticks, leaves and other buoyant material to make a floating nest for the young. He scoops up eggs in his mouth as the female lays them and carefully transports the eggs to the surface to be deposited in the floating nest. He even guards the young until they are old enough to fend for themselves. The male Jumbo Gourami is one of the most involved fathers in the animal kingdom.

This rodent is the cutest animal you've never seen!

At barely 2" long the pygmy jerboa is one of the smallest mammals in the world. Scientists believe their diminutive size is due to the species separating off from the larger rodent family about eight million years ago or more, and settling in the lands it now resides in today. Check out how adorable this one is!

Mice invade pastry shop in Toronto33s

Mice invade pastry shop in Toronto

If you thought only the subway had a mouse problem then clearly you have not seen this video yet! In this hair raising video, pedestrians outside of a Baklava & Chocolate Bar on Queen Street in Toronto, Canada witnessed a pair of mice feasting on the delicious treats. It was after hours when these little rodents came in so there was no one in the establishment to scare the mice away. The mice just happily sat there and had the feast of their lives. It is really sad when a food establishment gets infestations like this. Upon further research it seems that the whole market where this bakery resides was shut down by Toronto city health inspectors. This shutdown may lead to a series of charges against the owner of the bakery and the owner of the market of failing to prevent rodent infestations which falls under the city's food premises legislation. Hopefully these places do not close down for good and they fix their whole rodent situation. It also seems like this market is going to have to pay a hefty exterminator charge to get rid of these rodents. Looks like they will be needing to buy a lot of mouse traps. It is a shame that a market like this could fall so low just because of some mice.

Deer brings fawns running from the forest to share apples1m26s

Deer brings fawns running from the forest to share apples

There is a beautiful spot in southern Ontario where the deer are protected and they have not learned to fear humans. If you sit very patiently and quietly, they might even approach a human. It helps even more if you are crunching an apple or a carrot. This man waited until the deer were very close and he began eating an apple and throwing pieces on the ground. The deer ran to share it with him. The surprising part was that they actually brought their fawns over too. Does typically hide their fawns in the long grass, often separately, in order to protect them from predators. They return to them 3-4 times per day to nurse them. Fawns are always watching their mother and she will use a complex set of tail and ear movements to communicate with them. If you pay enough attention, you will see that there is more going on than just tail twitching. The fawns are actually reacting to her indications of any possible threats. This man had an incredibly rare treat as she brought her fawns very close. Few things are as cute as spotted fawns in early summer.

Wild snapping turtle extremely curious of human1m16s

Wild snapping turtle extremely curious of human

There is a very remote lake near Parry Sound, Ontario where wild snapping turtles such as this one have rarely, if ever, interacted with humans. As a result, they have little or no fear. This playful young turtle excitedly swam out from under the family dock to greet Dave when he was swimming. The turtle was particularly interested in Dave's snorkel mask and he repeatedly positioned himself so he could look Dave directly in the eye. The turtle followed him around the dock for over an hour, swimming around in circles and even engaging in some physical contact with no sign of concern. Common snapping turtles can grow to twice this size, weighing up to 45 pounds. Although all wild animals should be treated with caution and respect, these turtles are not the aggressive and fearsome creatures that they are rumored to be. It is a complete myth that they can snap a broomstick in two. They lack the jaw strength and beak sharpness to do so, although they can deliver a painful bite and bruising if they are provoked, especially on land. Snapping turtles are essential to lakes and rivers for keeping them clean and free of rotting fish.
