Baby Red Panda Born At Belgian Zoo

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPanda

Pop the bubbly!

A brand new baby Red Panda was just born at Zoo Planckendael in Belgium!

It's their first Red Panda which is great for the zoo but also great for the species because the Red Panda, native to Nepal, is listed as a vulnerable species.

It's vulnerable mainly because its habitat is being destroyed and they are often caught and killed for their fur.

Which is just wrong and all sorts of awful!

How could you want to do anything other than just cuddle one of these little guys?

Congrats on the new baby!

We kid you not, folks…we kid you not…

A Nepali man was bitten by snake while working in a rice paddy field and needlessly to say…he didn't take to kindly to that.

But instead of being a rational person and letting the snake go, he CHASED after it and bit it to death.

As we previously mentioned, Nepal held an all elephant soccer match at an elephant festival to promote conservation of elephants and to bring in tourists.

What we didn't know was the torture these poor animals must endure during "training" for these games.

Nepal Holds Elephant Soccer Match

Filed under: ElephantsGameFunny

In Nepal, several soccer-playing elephants got together for a quick game of soccer, or as they call it, trunkball.

It was part of Nepal's three-day, elephant-themed festival to help promote conservation awareness and boost tourism.

The elephants trained for weeks and seemed to have a great time playing around.

"We hope that the elephant festival will help bring more tourists to Chitwan. We need both foreign and domestic visitors."

They're probably trying to bring back tourists ever since their ten-year insurgency from armed rebels killed more than 13,000 people.

Hopefully the elephants will help.

"Training the elephants to play soccer was not easy but they learned the basic command. They understood they need to hit the ball when I yell 'kick' at them."

And an elephant never forgets, so maybe they'll keep up the soccer and we'll have a Christiano Ronaldophant.

Sorry, that was bad. LOLz!
