'Two Unlikely Friends at the Bronx Zoo'

'Two Unlikely Friends at the Bronx Zoo'

SO ADORBZ!!!

Is the beginning of the live action version of Are You My Mother?

No, but it's still super cute! (and we're sure they're still bffs)

Whilst visiting Bronx zoo photographer Tom Warren spotted something different about the gorilla enclosure - a tiny motherless duckling had wandered in.

At first the gorillas were bemused but as they became used to their miniscule visitor their wariness grew in to acceptance.

Tom's photo is currently on display at Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC.

ASPCA Lends A Hand To Tornado Victims

ASPCA Lends A Hand To AL Tornado Victims

Some good news for Alabama!

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society (GBHS) in Alabama has purchased a new emergency transport rig for tornado relief efforts as a result of a $128,000 grant provided by the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The new emergency transport vehicle will greatly improve the organization’s ability to provide assistance to the affected areas of Alabama, especially parts of Tuscaloosa, which was ravaged in late April by the worst tornado outbreak in the nation’s history.

The rig will include space for animal transport cages, an on-board veterinary work space, and room for the storage of pet care supplies.

"The recent tornadoes in Alabama have created an immense need for the care of animals that have been displaced and abandoned,” said Jodi Lytle Buckman, senior director of community initiatives for the ASPCA.

“Requests for transfers and supplies have been steadily increasing since the outbreak of dangerous weather, and we are pleased to be able to offer aid to local organizations like the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.”

For more information on the Greater Birmingham Humane Society and how you can help with the disaster relief efforts, please visit www.gbhs.org.

First Crocodile Attack In Florida's History!

Filed under: Attack!Crocodiles

crocodile attack in florida

Scary!

A young couple have become the first people ever in Florida to have been attacked by a crocodile.

Mike Gregory, 23, and Leigha Poulson, 20, who miraculously escaped with minor injuries, were kayaking in the early morning in the Florida Keys after a night out partying, when they were flipped into the water.

As they struggled to get back inside the kayak, they were both bitten on the leg by a crocodile, with Poulson also suffering scratch marks to her side.

While alligators are a fairly common danger in Florida, no one is thought to have been attacked before in the state by the elusive American crocodile.

Officials have yet to confirm the details of the attack, but the couple are convinced it was a crocodile that bit them and the claims have been backed by a top university biologist.

Poulson, who recently moved to from Ohio to study marine biology at Florida Keys Community College, added:

"I was saying how pretty it was out there and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else because I am from Ohio and then the boat just flipped. Then I was screaming 'Oh my God!"

Welcome to Florida Leigha! Wanna change your major?
