Zebra Bites Zookeeper! Attack Literally Scares Nearby Gazelle To Death!

| Filed under: Sad SadAttack!ZooEndangeredZebraGazelle

A zookeeper was attacked by a zebra so violently it literally scared a gazelle to death!!

Wow this is so crazy and pretty sad!!

A veteran zookeeper was attacked and bitten several times by a zebra at the National Zoo a few days ago.

The zookeeper was okay, but bleeding pretty badly (check out the blood covered zebra above, the red stain on his shoulders). The attack must've been intense.

All the commotion must've scared a young gazelle in an adjoining enclosure because he ran away super fast, sprinting headfirst into

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!
