Puffins are making a comeback!!
Puffins, super cute penguin looking birdies, were thought to be in real trouble, with dwindling numbers.
From 2003 to 2008, the puffin population dropped by about one third!!
So of course environmentalists were worried!
But it turns out that the population has made a real comeback all on it's own! They've turned their own fate around!
The puffin population on the UK's Farne Islands has made a serious recovery with a puffin boom, even though winters have been tough and brutal.
Why can't all species of animals just save themselves??
If only rhinos could take their own horn powder and start reproducing like rabbits, there'd be no issues.
Check out the video (above) to see these cutie puffins just puffining around their island.
Ah! Omg! This is so stinkin' cute!!
As if meerkats needed to be any cuter…
A meerkat at London Zoo got into the holiday spirit with a Christmas stocking!
The zoo has a magical Meet Santa experience and before the jolly man clad in red comes flying in on his sleigh, the animals all get gifts.
So all the meerkats got stockings with treats inside!
It's perfect because it's enrichment for them, because they're being stimulated and challenged by these foreign objects.
It's also double perfect because while they're being enriched, we get to watch them and go awwwwww!
Merry Christmas you cutie meerkats!

No, not you Russell Brand! Your dog!
Or should we say his MAYBE girlfriend’s dog!
The comedian was spotted in London on Sunday walking Jemima Khan’s fluffy best friend, Brian.
Don’t you just want to snuggle the heck out of that pup!
Well, if he can’t be in South Africa, at least Russell is spending time with Jemima.

Britain's Kennel Club breeders' association has issued a chilling warning…
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi, favorite of the queen of England, is at risk of disappearing!
The short-legged, yappy doggies have been favored by the British monarchy since the 1930s and now thats all in jeopardy.
The Kennel Club said that there were only 241 Pembroke Welsh Corgis registered in Britain, so few that the breed is now on the "at watch" list, preparing to move to the "vulnerable native breed" list!
The organization said in a statement:
Anya Hindmarch, British fashion accessory store, has come under fire by PETA.
The animal rights organization is upset over the store's Bond Street location in the UK and their use of dead ducklings!
A storefront window display has five taxidermied ducklings in a row. Awww… cute/sadsies!
PETA, not only upset at the sight of dead animals, has long criticized the brand's use of python and other animal skins in their products.
This is the most terrifying thing we've ever heard.
Consi Taylor was eating a banana in her London home when she noticed something odd about it.
There were strange white spots on the 'nanner.
At first, she thought it was mold but quickly realized it was in fact
Wow, that looks like the world's cutest, fluffiest dog!
He looks like he just came right out of the dryer!!
Who's dog is that?? It's Bradley Cooper's! But that's obvi not Brad walking the pup…
He left his dog's life in the hands of his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse. What a good girlfriend!
She's totally gorgeous and Bradley's dog is just about as cute as him, and that's saying a lot!
We could totes watch these two just stroll around on a chilly El Lay day all the time, though we'd honestly just be waiting for his royal handsomeness Mr. Cooper to pop up!
Check out some more pics (below) of the dynamic duo getting their walk on!
