Short-Haired Bumblebees Reintroduced Into The UK After 25 Years

Filed under: Science!InsectsBugs

This is so ahmayzing!! Go science!!

Conservationists in the UK are trying to bring back an extinct species of bumblebee!!

The short-haired bumblebee is being reintroduced into the Kent area.

Several queens have been raised and released into the area in an attempt to start a breeding population.

Since the project started, they've recorded young worker bees in a 2.5 mile area… the first to be seen in 25 years!!

Clearly, the program is working! That's so great!

The whole point of bringing these bees back is to help bring flowering meadows back to the British countryside.

Sounds like a beautiful idea!

Check out the video (above) to see how they're raising and releasing these queens!

Newborn Baby Mole Rat Is SUPER Adorbz! Yes, Really!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooRat

A newborn baby mole rat is super adorbz!!

Peoria Zoo in Illinois has welcomed its first surviving second generation Giant Zambian Mole-rat pup!

The little cutie was born back on June 22nd and has been growing rapidly.

The mole ratty has the most adorbz front teeth sticking out of his mouth!

It's so cute! But they're also functional, they are used for excavating their burrows by biting away the soil.

The Peoria Zoo is actually the first zoo in the U.S. to exhibit Giant Zambian Mole-rats.

They've been working to find a technique to ensure breeding success in the species, since they're not that easy to get to breed.

This little pup's mama was the first offspring to ever survive being born at the Peoria Zoo.

So glad this little cutie survived!!

Dublin Zoo Welcomes Two White Crowned Mangabey Babies

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredMonkey

White Crowned Mangabey Babies

There must be something in the water at Dublin Zoo because their monkey family just grew by two!

Two White Crowned Mangabey monkeys, a male and a female, were born only two weeks apart, several weeks ago.

The male, Jomoro, and the female, Awiane, were both fathered by the same dominant male, Danzo.

Team leader of the African Plains exhibit at the zoo said:

"We're delighted with the arrival of two Mangabeys which brings the Dublin Zoo troop of these elegant monkeys up to eight. Jomoro and Awiane are thriving and get on very well as brother and sister. It’s a joy to watch them being playful together."

That's so great!!

White Crowned Mangabeys are endangered in the wild and aren't doing well, their numbers constantly decreasing.

So the breeding program at Dublin Zoo is extra ahmayzing! These babies are so special and important!

Way to go, Dublin Zoo!! Take care of those cuties!!

Baby Tasmanian Devil Is The World's Cutest Critter!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooTasmanian Devil

tasmanian devil

On mainland Australia, Devil Ark is the largest conservation breeding program for the Tasmanian Devil.

We just learned something new about the tasmanian devil… they're SUPER cute as babies!

Just look at the pic (above) of a little Tasmanian Devil joey drinking from a bottle!!

Sooper adorbz!

Every little Devil is a gift because there's a highly contagious disease called Devil facial tumor disease (DFTD).

DFTD could lead to the extinction of of the Tasmanian Devil in the next 20 years!

So these little guys are just that much more precious!

There are over 120 Devils at the Ark and they hope to have 360 by 2016!

Good luck with the breeding! Let's keep these cuties around for future generations to "AWW" at!
