Five New Wild Ass Foals Get Wild And Sassy At Saint Louis Zoo

| Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredDonkeyZebra

Damn! Look at those wild ass foals!

Those are some wild ass Wild Asses!

They look like donkey-zebras (zonkeys? debras?) and they're just so stinkin' cute!

Five Somali Wild Ass foals were born at the Saint Louis Zoo and they're extra special because these wild ass Wild Asses are endangered!

They are from the desert areas of Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia with less than 1,000 living in the wild (ass)!

So every single one of these little asses is not only super cute, but also super important for the survival of their species.

Who here likes cute asses? Who wants to watch them jump and jiggle around??

Check out the video (above) to see some asses shaking at the Saint Louis Zoo!

Endangered Peccary Piglets Play At San Francisco Zoo

| Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredPig

A super cute litter of Chacoan Peccary piglets was born at San Francisco Zoo in early November.

They're not only super dooper cute, they're also endangered!

The little ones are growing and exploring their outdoor habitat, being super adorbz, leaping and running in circles, doing a behavior known as 'frisky hopping.'

They are so stupid cute we can barely handle it!

These poor animals are threatened by habitat loss and illegal hunting, though.

So glad SF Zoo is doing their part to help save these lil cuties!

Check out the video (above) to watch the adorbz guys running around!

Asian Unicorn Photographed For First Time In 15 Years!!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!EndangeredAmazingCrazzzzy

The Asian Unicorn was caught on camera in Vietnam!!

Wow! This is so incredible!!

The Saola is one of the most mysterious, secretive creatures on this planet.

It was first discovered in Vietnam in 1992, near the Laotian border.

The cutie creature was the first large mammal new to science in over half a century!!

But after being discovered, it has rarely been seen in the wild, making it the perfect candidate for the nickname, Asian Unicorn.

Even though they have two horns.

What's so incredible is that a lone Saola was snapped by a camera trap set up by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in the Central Annamite Mountains.

The head of the WWF in Vietnam said:

Congratulations, Humanity, You've Let The Western Black Rhino Go Extinct

| Filed under: Sad SadEndangeredRhinos

The western black rhino is officially extinct now. Well, that sucks!

We previously mentioned one wildlife group already declared the Western Black Rhino extinct.

Originally, we thought they might have jumped the gun a little, seeing as how the World Wildlife Fund had estimated there were still about 4,000 of the rhinos left.

Well now, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the largest conservation network, has declared the subspecies totally extinct.

Dead. Gone. Donezo.

Poached into extinction by heartless poachers. Thanks for that.

San Antonio Zoo's Twin Tiger Cubs Are Stupid Cute

| Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredTiger Tiger

San Antonio Zoo's twin tiger cubs are so stankin\' cute and integral to their species survival!

San Antonio Zoo has two super cute twin female Sumatran Tiger cubs and they're just about the best things ever.

The super cute, tiny babes were born on August 3rd and have been getting larger and more playful every day!

The zoo actually waited a few weeks before announcing the cubs were born because their mama Kemala was a brand new mother.

The babies and their mama have been spending time their den, bonding off-exhibit.

Sumatran tigers are critically endangered so these little cubbies are super important to the survival of their species.

There are less than 400 Sumatran tigers living in the wild so these babies represent a ray of hope for those gorgeous big cats.

They're growing up fast so if you wanna see them while they're still too small to kill you, head on down to San Antonio asap!

Eastern steller sea lions taken off of threaten species list!

Back in 1979, there were only about
