Was it Germany? Austria? France?

Maybe the U.K.??

Not much is know about these little ones but it was the first successful breeding of the rare turtle.

The turtles were donated to the zoo by a specialist who moved abroad and these may be the only ones in captivity!

Lots of unknown treasures are hidden inside the little shells!

And Now, Mariah Carey's Camel Toe!

We love you, Butterfly, but that doesn't mean you can't wear a spandex unitard ensemble that isn't all stuck up in your nether regions!

After renewing her wedding vows with hubby Nick Cannon in Paris over the weekend, Mariah Carey stopped by the luxury Austrian ski resort Ischgl to sing at its legendary season closing concert.

For the chilly performance, sweet Mariah chose a red and black snow-bunny unitard that was not behaving in the crotch area!

Check yourself, girl! We're sure there was a mirror in your luxury suites!

Spandex is a tricky mistress…

Because they're so freaking CUTE!!!

Three meerkat triplets have Austrians going baby crazy at Vienna's Schönbrunn Zoo. The aDORable baybays are exploring their environment for the first time and it's creating quite the buzz!

Born blind and hairless, the meerkats stayed in their burrow for the first few weeks after their February 20th birth.

Now, even though they're still suckling from momma, the babes are roaming the streets of their habitat.

With their own meerkat babysitter!

Check out these cuddly little critters (below) and see them play with each other.

Too precious!

Baby Sloth Hugs His Mama!

Filed under: Baby BlabberCuteness!ZooSloth

Sloths are cute, slow and cute.

Also, did we mention super cute?

And baby sloths are all that times ten!!

At the Schönbrunn Zoo in Austria a new baby two-toed sloth was born.

The zoo director said:

"Newborn two-toed sloths use the stomach of the mother as a cradle and climb, well camouflaged, into the cuddly fur. As a consequence the baby was very difficult to photograph."

They must also be especially difficult to photograph when they're always making funny faces and sticking their tongues out, making it hard to get a good pic.

LOLz!

The baby will stay clinging to its mother for the first six months before trying to hang on its own.

And that's fine by us since it looks so darn cute clinging to its mama like that.

Gwyneth Paltrow Endorses European Frozen Veggies And Creates Controversy

Gwyneth SPAR Veggie

Much to a lot of people's dismay, Gwyneth Paltrow has become the face of a veggie brand most of you will never get a chance to eat. The GOOP creator and author of My Father's Daughter cookbook, who can't help but encourage others to live a healthier lifestyle, has become the face of SPAR Veggie in Austria.

While it's not unusual for celebs to lend their faces to brands in other countries, people seem to be a little offended that Gwyneth decided to slap her stamp of approval on a brand which is decidedly bad, as one person familiar with the product told sources:

"In terms of quality, Spar is the equivalent of a convenience store attached to a gas station. You might buy gum there, but you wouldn't buy Spar-brand gum, or Spar-brand anything for that matter."

Ha! Well, regardless how some people may feel, Gwyneth obviously didn't think the veggies were THAT bad. In fact, she reportedly said in a statement that, "They are a real healthy alternative if you want to quickly serve something."

The same reason that is making people upset for her decision to endorse the company is the same reason the company wanted her endorsement, as SPAR explained:

"She lives the idea of SPAR Veggie. Gwyneth Paltrow credibly embodies today's modern and health conscious woman, integrating meat-less dishes into her lifestyle, not every day but every now and then."

Well, we won't be tasting this dish anytime soon so we can't care too much if Gwyneth signed the deal based on price or principal. However, if you don't like what the actress has to say about healthy eating, don't listen. Pretty simple really.
