Backyard Security Camera Catches A Bear Beating The Heat With A Swim

When you live close to a forest or in a wooded area, you’re bound to encounter some wildlife around your home. Most of the time, though, the animals are only there in search of some food, not a relaxing dip in your backyard pool! One man decided to check his security camera after he came home and found that his backyard fence was broken. What he saw was a black bear that had decided to beat the heat with a quick swim. This bear’s got it all figured out…all he needs now is a poolside mojito. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/bear-pool/

If Your Spouse Never Orders Fries And Then Eats Yours, You'll Understand This Dog

If Your Spouse Never Orders Fries And Then Eats Yours, You’ll Understand This Dog

Most of us are probably a lot more protective of our food than we’d like to admit. Whenever I bring a tasty treat home and my loved ones try to steal more than a bite, I get pretty testy and make it obvious that I’m less than pleased with their attempt at poaching my meal. That’s why I completely understand this dog’s beef with her owner. When he took his pup’s bone out of her mouth and playfully pretended to eat it, she wasn’t having it at all — so she hilariously fought back. “Give it back now or I’ll release the rage of all my furry ancestors.” Read More: 15 Animals That Don’t Give A Damn About Our Stupid Human Laws If there’s one thing to be learned here, it’s to never underestimate the bond between a dog and her treats.

What They Caught This Tiny Hamster Doing Is Beyond Hilarious

Hamsters are adorable little pets that have crawled their way into the hearts of many families across the country.

But I don’t know who is going to adopt this little hamster…it seems like he’s got a bit of a glitch. Look at this little weirdo. I mean look at this little guy…there must be a glitch in the Matrix or something. YouTube Someone help this poor little hamster! I think he needs some professional gymnastics help.

Guilty Dog Hilariously Tries To Hide A Sandwich In His Mouth  Nice Try, Guy!

Guilty Dog Hilariously Tries To Hide A Sandwich In His Mouth Nice Try, Guy!

If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know and understand that sometimes they attempt to steal some of your food. If it’s in clear view, it’s pretty much fair game — at least in their opinion. The instant you look away from whatever you are eating, an opportunistic dog will pounce on that delicious human food. When Sabin saw his mom had made a tasty sandwich, his first thought was probably: “For me? You shouldn’t have!” Watch as she hilariously tracks down her lunch in the funniest place… If you think this is the only case of dogs squirreling food away in their mouths, think again! They may be man’s best friend, but they are also no-good scoundrels when it comes to getting their paws on some human noms. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dog-sandwich/

What This Chimp Did At The 3:10 Mark Of This Video Choked Me Up. It's A Must See.

What This Chimp Did At The 3:10 Mark Of This Video Choked Me Up. It’s A Must See.

Jane Goodall is a British primatologist that is known for being the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees. She has a great love of animals, but most of all chimps. She formed the Jane Goodall Institute, an international wildlife and environment conservation organization, to help protect those animals she loves so dearly. Some of the work that the Institute does is truly moving. This story of a chimp they brought back from death’s door, for example, is incredible. In the Republic of Congo, the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center found a chimpanzee that was near death. They called her “Wounda,” which meant “close to dying.” You’ll see why. Wounda was barely alive when she was found. The rescue had to take immediate action to save her life. Jane Goodall Institute Thanks to Dr. Rebeca Atencia, Wounda came back from the dead. The rescue fed her and tended to her […]

Watch As This Cluster Of Bees Murders Their Own Queen.

Watch As This Cluster Of Bees Murders Their Own Queen.

Fred Boucher found this cluster of bees in his garden under one of his mating nucs. His initial thought was that this was a tiny swarm cluster caused by a colony of bees absconding from a mating nuc… but it wasn’t. The bees were too tightly clustered for that and they were clearly agitated. He could also hear loud squealing from deep inside the cluster. What these worker bees are doing is called balling, they are basically tightly clustering around the Queen and creating enough heat from friction to kill her. During her life, the Queen releases a pheromone that tells the workers that she is the Queen, but towards the end of her life she stops producing this pheromone. This makes the workers think she is an intruder. They defend the hive by killing the “intruder.” (Source: Fred Boucher) Share this unusual yet interesting video with your friends below, and remember, it’s […]

They Were Out Whale Watching When They Witnessed Predators In Action

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); We all know about the food chain, but it’s not very often that we get to see it in action. I’ve never witnessed an animal being hunted by another in real life, and I hope I never do. But I have to admit that there’s something incredible about watching nature run its course, and I’m sure these people would agree. During a tour on the Campbell River in British Columbia, Canada, tour guide Nick Templeman and his group finally got to see the killer whales they’d been looking for. But when a seal jumped straight into their boat, they realized that it was desperately trying to escape from the same whales they wanted to see. I’m honestly a little shocked that they entertained the idea of kicking it back in! The poor thing was absolutely terrified. And for good reason. The whales wouldn’t stop circling the […]

Kind Man Dressed In His Bathrobe Helps A Wildlife Rescuer Save An Injured Fox.

Simon from the Wildlife Aid Foundation was called out late one evening to save an injured fox hiding in the bushes. A man dressed in his bathrobe found the poor fox curled up under a hedge and called for help. The fox was weak due to a wounded back leg, but the gentleman fed the poor fox chopped sausages and cheese while he waited for Simon and his team to arrive. Simon and friends eventually brought the animal back the to their wildlife hospital. After two weeks of care, the fox’s wounds healed nicely and he was released back into the kind man’s garden.

He’d Been In The Hospital For 8 Days Before A Nurse Brought His Friend To See Him

Costa, a homeless Brazilian man, ended up in the hospital after being attacked by some street thugs. While his injuries were being treated, doctors discovered he had melanoma. This meant he’d have to stay for a couple of weeks in the hospital while receiving treatment, which was a huge problem for Costa because he didn’t live on the streets by himself. He lived with Seco, his loving dog. As he underwent skin cancer treatment, his best friend waited outside in the parking lot for days on end. Since hospital rules do not permit animals to enter, hospital staff provided food and water for the faithful little dog. On the eighth day of his wait, the hospital made an exception to their no-animals rule and allowed the forlorn pooch to visit his friend. This is the heartwarming moment the two are reunited! You can really see how much the little guy […]

He Picked Up What He Thought Was An Ordinary Egg, But It Contained Something Weird

Picking up eggs that aren’t from a grocery store is usually frowned upon. Most animals are territorial about their eggs, and they may attack you if you touch them. Some will even leave their eggs behind if they detect your scent. For the sake of your health and the health of the unborn creatures, it’s probably best to keep your distance. Despite all of that, one man’s curiosity got the best of him. What he found inside of a small egg was something that he never expected to see. What a cool discovery! Even though these turtles can now lead safe, happy lives on their own, something tells me that they’ll always have a soft spot for each other. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/turtle-egg/

This Two-Nosed Dog Was Almost Put Down, But Now He Has A Chance At Happiness

Our differences make us unique — heck, if we all looked alike, the world would be a pretty boring place. I mean, I just wrote a piece about a two-headed snake! …Which brings us to Toby. The Australian shepherd has two noses and because of that abnormality, he was about to meet an unfortunate and early end. But luckily, a hero stepped in. Todd Ray decided to adopt Toby because he would much rather give the pup a happy life than see him put down simply because he looked different. Ray says that Toby is a happy dog that everyone loves once they get past his irregularity. Who could resist that (albeit unusual) face??? And Ray isn’t a stranger to animals like Toby — he holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of animals with two heads. (via BBC) Vets say that Toby is in perfect health, so […]

This Is What A Chicken Farm SHOULD Look Like (And It's Kind Of Majestic)

This Is What A Chicken Farm SHOULD Look Like (And It’s Kind Of Majestic)

If you don’t know the difference between free-range eggs and cage-free eggs, you’re not alone. Most people don’t (and assume that, generally, free-range eggs are just more expensive). Here’s a breakdown (thanks to the Wall Street Journal): Caged: Chickens are forced into small cages. They cannot move and are treated as machines. Cage-free: The chickens are uncaged and able to freely roam a barn or other facility, but they generally don’t have access to the outdoors. Free-range: Indicates the hens are cage-free and have some access to the outdoors. Just because chickens aren’t forced into cages doesn’t mean they are living a good life. But truly free-range chickens? Just see for yourself. These chickens are free-range, healthy, and happy. (Isn’t it just how it should look?) Here’s what it looks like when the chickens we eat are caged… (Warning: The following video contains graphic content.) The difference is stark and […]

Animal Rescuers Find 5 Puppies Left To Die In The Freezing Cold

For many, especially animal lovers, the prospect of abandoning pets by the side of a road is unimaginable and cruel.

Simon from the Wildlife Aid Foundation never knows what to expect when he goes out on a rescue. That’s why he was so amused when he was called to capture and release a squirrel. The little critter was trapped in the house, terrorizing the woman living there. She even found a way to keep it in her dining room. She made a squirrel barricade with tape and newspapers. Luckily, the little guy stayed away from the flimsy barricade, allowing Simon to help him out. (Source: Wildlife Aid) After catching the angry squirrel, Simon went outside to release him.

When He Put A Heating Pad Under His Bird Feeder, He Was Shocked By Who Came To Visit

Seeing hummingbirds is an incredibly rare thing to happen, especially when it’s for a prolonged period of time. They are nomadic in nature and move quickly, never really allowing themselves any rest time, and they generally avoid humans. But when this family placed their bird feeder on a heating pad in the middle of an especially cold winter in Arizona, something strange happened.

It's A Good Idea To Make Sure Your Food Is Dead Before You Try To Eat It

It’s A Good Idea To Make Sure Your Food Is Dead Before You Try To Eat It

Despite their bad reputation in some circles, frog legs can be pretty delicious. That being said, it takes a skilled chef to prepare them just right. Oh, and you also need to be prepared for the legs to move a little bit. You see, at the time of death, a frog’s legs are still biologically functional. If the muscles are stimulated — with electricity, for example — they can move. You can get the same effect by adding simple table salt to the legs while they’re still raw. That’s because table salt contains the same kind of sodium ions that are used in batteries. The sodium ions enter the negatively charged muscle cells. That causes a pretty bizarre reaction, as you can see in the video below. (via Brain Stuff Show) The muscles will go on moving like that until they’ve used up all of the remaining adenosine triphosphate (ATP) […]

Well, in this case, the contestant was a very smart seagull and the playing piece was a tasty treat.

After His Owner Died, This Puppy Waited A Whole Year For Him To Return. Watch His Heartwarming Rescue.

When Woody’s owner died, the family sold the house and left poor Woody behind to fend for himself. For a year, he waited under a nearby shed hoping his owner would return, kept alive by the food and water that neighbours left for him while they searched for someone to help save him. Eventually, dog rescuer Eldad Hagar and his organization, “Hope For Paws” heard about Woody and came to his aid. They rescued him and gave him the feeling of love for the first time in a very long time. That poor little guy; dogs are so loyal to their owners.
