CUTENESS: Newborn Donkra

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooDonkeyZebra

ADORBULOUS!

Eat your heart out goth gurls!

This newborn donkra was born with super fierce zebra stripped stockings and a serious identity crisis.

An offspring of a female zebra and male donkey – known as a donkra – has been born at Xiamen Haicang zoo.

A zebra-donkey hybrid is also known as zonkey, zebonkey, zebrinny, zebrula, zebrass and zedonk - so know doubt she'll be asking "who am I" for years to come!

We usually can't stand whinny emo kids (cause they remind us of ourselves in high school) BUT this little donkra is TOO CUTE to scoff at!

Heidi's Toddler Is Dog Training Before Turning 2

Heidi's Toddler Is Dog Training Before Turning 2

So Cute!

Heidi Klum's family is currently training their new German shepherds - and even her 18-month-old daughter Lou is in on action!

The model says:

"They're showing them how to sit! Lou says, 'Freddy sit. Freddy sit. Freddy sit, sit, sit!' She says that all day long!"

All of Heidi and hubby Seal's beautiful children (Leni, 7, Henry, 5, and Johan, 4) seem to be pretty advanced.

Perhaps it's her model (get it?) parenting style. The famous couple make it a point not to spoil there offspring. Hiedi told our source:

"They see people living on the streets and they ask a lot of questions. I'm honest with them and I tell them that not everyone lives the same way. Not everyone has a garden. Not everyone has a maid."

However, not the same was said about her new dogs. With four kids a big house and a maid, we have a feeling their German shepherds are going to be spoiled rotten!

Male Octopus Gives Birth!

Filed under: Sea CreaturesAmazing

octopus give birth

Wait, that can't happen!

Staff at a marine centre have been left stunned after an octopus thought to be male gave birth.

The lesser octopus, named Roland, has caused a mini sensation at the UK's Hunstanton Sealife Sanctuary.

But staff members are now facing a battle to save Roland's offspring while the mother herself is facing imminent death because she is so devoted.

Apparently the creatures become so focused on looking after their little ones they starve themselves to death.

"Sadly nobody has yet managed to successfully rear octopus fry to maturity," told an aquarium staffer. "But we're going to do our level best and see if we can be the first."

Escaped Snake Gets A Name

Escaped Cobra gets a name

The clever cobra that escaped the Bronx Zoo and inspired a media frenzy has finally gotten a name to match it's reputation.

Mia!

The 20-inch Egyptian cobra, which went missing on March 24th, but has since been found in the zoo's Reptile House, was named after a play on the words, "Missing In Action".

That's clever! We hope they name one of her offspring Chuck Norris too.

Famous Central Park Zoo Gorilla Lulu Dies

Lulu the gorilla dies

So sad, but we guess it was her time to go.

Lulu, who thrilled New Yorkers by delivering the first baby gorilla ever born at the Central Park Zoo, died at her retirement habitat at in Ohio on Monday.

When Lulu's baby was born in 1972, the New York Daily News ran a naming contest that collected over 33,000 entries and selected Patty Cake as the winner.

The 46-year-old gorilla died after she began to suffer from seizures on Saturday.

Zoo officials say Lulu, known for her pink tongue that was perpetually sticking out, was a favorite among visitors.

Sounds like Lulu lived a long and happy life reaching a relatively old age for a gorilla.

Her daughter Patty Cake went on to produce 10 offspring of her own and now resides at the Bronx Zoo.

Rest in peace, Lulu!
