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!1m08s

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.

Cows listen to accordion music, absolutely love it! 2m34s

Cows listen to accordion music, absolutely love it!

A herd of cows rush over to hear accordion music played by Don Bitterlich in Garmisch, Germany. You can clearly see how much they truly enjoy the music and they are not the only ones. Have you seen the clip where a jazz bands plays for another herd of bovines? How about the one where a farmer plays Lorde's “Royals” on his trombone? Those are just too surreal to pass on. So what is it that draws these cows to music? The answer to this question is actually pretty simple – music helps them relax, just like it would any other animal (yes, humans included). Today's dairy farms are noisy and busy places, what with all the clanking of cow bells and the swooshing sound of the automated milkers. All that racket can stress a cow out and a stressed cow is not a productive cow. Dairy farmers had to become the experts on how to comfort their cows, so they would do anything from air conditioning the barns, to making them as pleasant to live in for their milk producing bovines. And this is not even a new thing. Back in 2001, psychologists from the University of Leichester in England showed that cows liked slow music so much, that it increased the production of milk by 3%. So there you have it. If your cows are a little stingy on the milk, just play them something soothing. Like R.E.M. or Simon & Garfunkel.

Blue Jay's Oscar-worthy performance for playing dead6s

Blue Jay's Oscar-worthy performance for playing dead

This blue jay appears to be dead, as it lies motionless upside down. But after a gentle poke, he is awakened and flies away! This is not an uncommon behavior with birds. One bird watcher wrote in their blog that they watched a pair of blue jay birds that did the exact same thing on numerous occasions, especially the male. It mostly happens when the sun in high and shining warm on the ground, because that way they absorb the heat from the sun. Think of it as a sort of spa treatment for them. Blue Jays are being called bullies of smaller birds unfairly. Yes, they are loud, fast and don't think twice when they swoop down on the bird feeders and rarely stay still. They are hyperactive, which makes the smaller birds fly away and settle on the other feeders that are blue-jay-free. The bird watcher says that when a blue jay is the loudest, that probably means that danger is near, probably a hawk. Hawks are the greatest enemies of small birds and those who feed them in their own back yards. So basically, the blue jays aren't the bullies, but rather the saviors of the smaller birds, with their loud screeching.

Mother fox leads human to her kits2m48s

Mother fox leads human to her kits

A woman in Israel has known this curious vixen for a while. She is fairly friendly and will come close when she sees her. She's had a litter of 4 kits over the spring. Normally the father would help to take care of the little ones by hunting and bringing food to the mother, but there is no dad in sight. Therefore, this woman has become somewhat of a surrogate father to her babies, allowing the mother fox to take food from her hand and go straight to give it to the kits or to bury it, never eating it herself. Foxes are omnivores and usually eat insects, reptiles and birds, but they fancy a vegetarian meal every now and then, like eggs and plants. This here is a case of a very loving fox mom that decided to trust a human in order to keep her babies safe and sound and provide food for them. Such a selfless act for an animal, don't you think? Many foxes adapt well to human surroundings, and several species classified as "resident urban carnivores" for their ability to sustain populations entirely within urban boundaries.

Smart geese know how to cross the street

Why did the flock of geese cross the street? So that they can be caught on video and become Internet sensation! These very clever geese wait for the traffic light to change before crossing the street in front of the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston. Such model citizens! Soon enough, one by one they start crossing and the cars stop for these feathery pedestrians! They look like the Beatles on that cross walk, only without the flair pants. If you are wondering why they didn’t just fly across, here’s an idea. Walking uses far less energy than flying. Conserving energy for fleeing danger and long migrations helps them survive. Geese tend to walk to their feeding site from water. Since geese are grazing animals, they will do more walking than flying. Still, it is one amazing sight to behold!
