Super Cute Tiny Monkeys Play With Jell-O!!

Filed under: FoodCuteness!ZooMonkeyAwwwww

Ahhhhh! Omg omg omg! Why did no one think of this earlier??

All animals at zoos need "enrichment."

That means activities that challenge them mentally and physically, keeping them from getting bored and making their lives better.

Some genius at the Bronx Zoo realized that the squirrel monkeys would look insanely cute digging berries out of Jell-O… so guess what?

They gave them berry filled Jell-O!!

As if these tiny little critters weren't cute enough on their own, they gotta go and give them Jell-O to play with??

It's so cute, watching the monkey's dig through the unnatural substance.

They clearly have no idea what the Jell-O is, seeing as how Jell-O doesn't usually exist in nature. LOLz!

Check out the video (above) to see some super cute monkeys playing with Jell-O!!

Man Mauled By Tiger At Bronx Zoo After Jumping Into Tiger Pit

Filed under: Attack!ZooTiger TigerCrazzzzy

People: LEAVE TIGERS ALONE!!!!

A 25-year-old man jumped into the tiger pit at the Bronx Zoo in what appeared to be a suicide attempt.

The zoo's Siberian tiger exhibit is only visible by monorail, which prompted David Villalobos, riding in the last car, to leap from the train.

The tiger mauled Villalobos, biting his arm, back, and legs. Zookeepers used a fire house to get the tiger away from the man and EMTs performed care on Villalobos.

No ones knows why the man jumped into the tiger pit but Bronx Zoo Director Jim Breheny says the tiger did nothing wrong and won't be put down.

Check out the crazy story (above) RIGHT NOW!

We just LOVE to see how much fun Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise, seem to having together these days!

Especially when it involves such AH-mazing animal friends like these!

Although the actress was expected to walk the red carpet at an event for her Dizzy Feet Foundation yesterday in Los Angeles, she instead chose to opt of that in order to bring her daughter to the Bronx Zoo, where the pair spent the afternoon feeding giraffes!

Just LOOK at how much they're having (above)!

Can't say we blame Katie for wanting to hold off professional obligations for the time being!

Right now her focus should be right where it is - on her daughter!

Wonder how little Suri felt when she noticed those furry, long-necked guys had PURPLE TONGUES! Ha!

Hope you two had a WONDERFUL day!
