Ever wanted to know what rain looks like to a insect (or snail)?
We have a guess…we think something like "WHAT IS THIS LIQUID DEATH ALL AROUND ME" creeps into these little critters minds.
Lucky, these bugs can adapt…we think…LOLz!
Check out these super AMAZEBALLS pics (below) of insects

In the words of Missy Elliot, Tina Turner and Ann Peebles, He can't STAND the rain!
A chihuahua finds himself caught in the rain and he does not look too happy.
Even with his rain boots and raincoat, he just wants out!
Watch this cutie (above) sing, dance, and run OUT of the rain.
Several new species were recently described.
There was a scary skull-faced sneezing monkey, a new mushroom species named after SpongeBob SquarePants and a worm that lives almost a mile underground named for the devil, the Devil Worm.
How did we miss all these creatures until now??
Here we have another 'Ask a Vet from the SF SPCA' with Dr. Jennifer Scarlett.
Some of us find that our dogs can be… "prissy" at times. Like refusing to go out in the rain. Someone with that exact problem wrote into Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, asking:
My one year old Havanese hates the rain. When it is raining he refuses to go outside, if you force him to he will not do his business. He waits to come back in and does it in the house. What can I do?
Dr. Jennifer responded:
Well, the driest place on earth is the Atacama desert but that’s no place for a dog.
We have a couple of options, but without question, forcing him to go outside will backfire. If your guy isn’t enthusiastic about going outside in inclimate weather, you may want to throw in the towel and go for indoor potty training, or at least offer a better option than the living room carpet.
You can find puppy pads at any pet store. They are basically flat diapers. There are also some fake grass options. If that doesn’t sound like a good plan, you’ll need to dedicate some time to train your pup’s opinion of a downpour. You’ll want to go with positive reinforcement training. So stock up on yummy treats and pick your cue word.
For example, let’s say “bidness” is your cue word. Every time you say it your dog gets a treat.
Then say it ever time you go outside—Let’s do bidness!—treat and happiness. Ideally you would start this training when the sun is shining but we can still get a lot of good work done now.
Remember, don’t force. The more cruddy experiences your dog has (being forced, pulled or unwillingly carried), the more stubborn the behavior will become. Also, if there’s any way to make a little shelter outside for your dog, that’d help—even a little tarp or tent will help on those downpour days.

So remember, it's all about positive reinforcement.
Stay positive, and the pup will pee!

Sunday was way too wet in Hollywood.
We realize we don't have to experience the perils of MaMa Nature and her flow as much as the rest of the country, but because of this, we become accustomed to sunny weather.
So when it rains, our bodies can't handle it. Excuse us, let's rephrase. When it pours all day and all night long, we can't handle it.
Seriously, even the LAX tunnel had a fit and flooded!
But Jason Schwartzman and his dog still decided to go out for a walk. They must have thought the gloomy weather would discourage being seen, but clearly that isn't the case. Cute dog!

It's raining frogs!
Khloe Kardashinan and hubby Lamar Odom house in LA has flooded due to excessive rain, and an army of frogs have since taken up residence in the entrance to her house.
“This rain is crazy! Our bar/pool table room is flooded&Lamar & I spent 20 mins getting FROGS out of our entry way! That was classic! LOL,”
Khloe wrote on Twitter.
“trust me I was screaming but laughing at the same time :) . OMG it was sooooo funny! LOL but apparently frogs love my house. (sic)”
Perhaps Khloe's unmarried sister Kim try kissing them.
