Watch the World’s Largest Shark Tank on LIVE Webcam

Filed under: SharkAmazing



Yes, your prayers have been answered!

To get psyched for Shark Week, the Discovery Channel teamed up with the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta to place a live streaming peephole in the aquarium’s Ocean Voyager exhibit!!

The exhibit, which was designed to house whale sharks, holds 6.3 million gallons of seawater, enough to fill nine and a half Olympic swimming pools. It is home to seven different types of sharks, including enormous whale sharks, vicious-looking sand tiger sharks, and bottom-dwelling masters of disguise called spotted wobbegongs.

It also holds several other species of fish and four manta rays, the only manta rays ever to live in a U.S. aquarium.

Despite the popular image of sharks as creatures of speed and violence, the view in the tank is peaceful and soothing.

But we're sure it'll get fun during feeding!

Mutts

Hope this is better than Garfield!

20th Century Fox is prepping a big-screen version of the popular comic strip Mutts.

The studio’s animation division has hired Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell and his brother Robert McDonnell to write the script for a feature-length animated film.

Mutts is a daily comic strip centering on the antics of a dog named Earl and a cat named Mooch who interact with each other and the animals in their neighborhood, as well as their human owners.

One In Ten Pets Have A Facebook Profile

Blogging pet? That's totes ridiculous! LOLz!

A new study says a different breed of celebrity is taking over Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

One in ten of all UK pets have their own Facebook page, Twitter profile or YouTube channel, and more than half of UK pet owners are sharing photos of their pets online.

The rise of pets online has also seen a number of owners joining dedicated sites, with names such as Critter, Catster and Doggie Dating.

Others have also set up entire websites devoted specifically to their pets, many of which have raised money for rescue centres or animal welfare charities.

Neil Brettell, director of insurer PetPlan, who commissioned the study, said that it suggested that “animals are more popular than celebrities on Facebook and other social networking sites.”

He added "A site that incorporates animals AND celebrities sounds like it would be the best website ing the world!!"

Ok, he didn't say that last part. LOL.

Michael, SIT!

According to a study of 36,000 pet names by John Lewis Insurance, people are rejecting traditional pet names in favour of those normally given to children.

Families are more likely to call their mut George than Tiddles, while pooch names like Fido or Lassie have been replaced by Toby.

Poppy is the UK most popular name for both dogs and cats while Alfie, Molly, Charlie, Max, Bella, Millie, Daisy and Rosie appear in the Top 10 for both animals.

The company's research also uncovered a craze for naming cats and dogs after celebrities, with J-Lo, Shakira, Clint Eastwood and Will.I.am among the stars paid tribute to in the list.

The top ten pet names for pets in Britain:

For Dogs
1: Poppy, 2: Alfie, 3: Molly, 4: Charlie, 5: Max, 6=: Bella, 6=: Ruby, 8: Millie, 9: Daisy, 10: Rosie.

For Cats
1: Poppy, 2: Oscar, 3: Charlie, 4: Molly, 5: Daisy, 6: Millie, 7: Alfie, 8: Rosie, 9: Tigger, 10: Bella, 10: Max, 10: Monty.

Heidi The Cross-Eyed Opossum's Nicer New Home

Filed under: ZooFunnyopossum

Now she's really made it!

Heidi, a cross-eyed opossum, who has become the biggest American-born star to hit Germany since The Hasselhoff, now has sweet new digs to for her fame.

Heidi and her sister, Naira, were raised as a foundling in a SC wild animal station before moving to the Leipzig Zoo in, 2010 — have now been moved into a special exhibit at the zoo called the Gondwanaland Tropical Experience World!

(sounds fancy!)

Although a Leipzig Zoo spokesman insisted to the Local that the "media resonance was surprising and not planned," it has nevertheless moved to protect the rights to her name and cross-eyed image - believed to be the result of pressure on her eyes created by fatty deposits.

The zoo says the squint doesn't hurt Heidi and, certainly, her popularity won't hurt the zoo's bottom line.
