Lions Cubs Co-Parented By Entire Pride Of Big Cats!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooLions

Lion cubs at zoo basel are parented by the entire pride!

Zoo Basel has lion cubs and they're so cute we're about to quit everything and go run away to live in their lion enclosure.

There are four young, male lion cubs running around the zoo because two of the zoo's female lions, Okoa and Uma each gave birth to two cubs.

The babies were born only four days apart. Zoo officials will eventually need to DNA test the cubs and mamas to figure out whose baby is whose.

What's nice to see is that the cubs are all raised together by the females of the pride, just like in the wild.

The cubs' father (just one father) Mbali, has actually stayed in the picture, even though the males are normally removed from the nurturing environment.

He must be a total sweetheart! No danger is posed to his babies.

These lil' cubbies are part of the European Endangered Species Programme and so they're super important to creating sustainable lion populations!

So great, so cute, so totes amazeballs! Go lions, go!!

Hunter Becomes The Hunted! Black Rhino Hunting Permit Auction Winner's Family Threatened!!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFamilyScary!EndangeredRhinosHunting

Hunter who won endangered black rhino hunting permit auction is having his and his family's lives threatened!

Would you pay $350,000 to put your family's life in danger AND murder an endangered species??

Sounds kinda way ridiculous but that's pretty much what's going on for Corey Knowlton.

Knowlton paid $350,000 to the Dallas Safari Club Auction for a super rare permit to hunt an endangered black rhino.

Animal conservationists everywhere are freaking out that this hunting permit even exists.

Knowlton has tried to explain to his critics how letting him buy the permit has sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to a cause that will actually SAVE more black rhinos, but also how it's okay to kill one… as long as it's specific.

The Namibian government has apparently picked out specific rhinos that can and SHOULD be killed because they're not only too old to breed but they're also grumpy old men who pose an actual threat to healthy, young rhinos.

Puffin Population Rebounds All By Itself!

Filed under: AnglophiliaMama NatureScience!BirdsAmazing

Puffins are making a comeback!!

Puffins, super cute penguin looking birdies, were thought to be in real trouble, with dwindling numbers.

From 2003 to 2008, the puffin population dropped by about one third!!

So of course environmentalists were worried!

But it turns out that the population has made a real comeback all on it's own! They've turned their own fate around!

The puffin population on the UK's Farne Islands has made a serious recovery with a puffin boom, even though winters have been tough and brutal.

Why can't all species of animals just save themselves??

If only rhinos could take their own horn powder and start reproducing like rabbits, there'd be no issues.

Check out the video (above) to see these cutie puffins just puffining around their island.

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!
