It was time for the truck driver to hit the road again, but first he needed to check his tires - and thank goodness he did! Because as he was bent over checking out one of the front tires, he spotted a tiny baby aardvark leaning up against it! The truck driver, who was working in Namibia, looked all around the area in search of the aardvark's mama, but he couldn't find her anywhere. So, he picked up the baby aardvark and drove with him back to his company's headquarters. Once there, Dr. Erika de Jager, a local vet and the founder of ZURI Orphanage, a small animal refuge, was contacted and the baby was handed over to her. Erika de Jager runs the orphanage from her home. The little aardvark, named E.T. by de Jager, had hardly any body hair, and was estimated to be a...

Two Best Friends Rescued From Meat Farm Reunite! Kenji and Sophia, two dogs who grew up together on a meat farm, were very close, and they only had each other in the rough time they suffered through. For the dogs living on meat farms all over the world, it is a harrowing and frightening experience that can often leave them scarred, long after their rescue. This period of their lives makes such a huge impact, but so do the small comforts that they experience during their time there. That’s why when Kenji and Sophia spent their formative puppy years consoling each other as best friends while trapped on a meat farm in South Korea, they were never able to forget the other. amzn_assoc_ad_type = "banner"; amzn_assoc_marketplace = "amazon"; amzn_assoc_region = "US"; amzn_asso

Man Peers Into The Darkness, Then Sees Large Snake Wrapped Around Massive White Cluster. In the darkness, a flash of white contrasts against a mound of dark-brown coils as a man’s head hovers above. A snake handler leans over a ledge that sections off the patio area from the wooded portion of a woman’s backyard. As he peers through the gap, his head comes dangerously close to a large python protectively curled up in the shadows. In the center of her dark-brown-patterned coils rests a large cluster of stark-white eggs. Max, the Sunshine Coast Snake Catcher, scoops some dirt and brush from around the body before gently sliding his hand under her and slowly tugging her body out into the open. amzn_assoc_ad_type = "banner

Women Discover Emaciated Puppy Freezing In A Snow Bank, Moments From Death.  Women Discover Emaciated Puppy Freezing In A Snow Bank. When most of us think about animals or dogs especially, all of the puppy calendar-worthy scenarios and images will pop into our minds. Because that’s why we love dogs — they’re adorable and happy and free! But, unfortunately for some dogs, that’s not always the case. Many animal service workers and authorities have to deal with the other side of the spectrum: the dogs and animals which they find abandoned or abused. The sights they see will probably never leave their memory, but these special people continue their jobs because they realize that finding a creature in their worst state, means they can save them and make them better.

And saying it in the pejorative says more about our general ignorance of pigs than it does about the person we're attempting to drag through the mud as it were. But as it turns out, pickle piggies are in fact incredibly intelligent, possibly even more intelligent than chimpanzees and dogs. Not only do they have excellent long-term memories, but they highly developed problem solving capabilities too. As evidenced by the pig in this YouTube video who apparently has made it his life-goal to break free from every pen he finds himself in. According his humans, Houdini-pig kept escaping from their paddock. So, to secure the escapee they created a pen armed with electric fencing. But pig was ...
