World's First Live Tweeting Badger!!

Filed under: TwitterZooBadger

The Johannesburg Zoo has been trying to think of ways to get people more interested in their animals.

So they decided to get involved in social media, but they didn't want to hire an expensive team of experts or anything.

What did they do to solve this problem?

They hired their honey badger, named BG, to live tweet about what he was doing throughout the day.

He lives in a special enclosure that has motion sensors that trigger tweets about whatever BG is specifically doing at that moment!

It's such an AH-mazing idea, why didn't we think of it with Teddy Hilton? Oh, wait we did! LOLz! JK!

Check out the video (above) to meet BG the live tweeting badger!!

Got a nervous pup? An anxious doggy? A stressed out pooch??

Well good news! Colorado State University found that classical music like Mozart and Beethoven might reduce stress in dogs.

The study found that normal classical music calmed pets down better than music made specifically for calming down pets!

Orphan Baby Walrus Comforted By Rescuers

Filed under: Baby BlabberCuteness!RescueAwwwwwWalrus

Oh boy, we may need a tissue after this one.

This little (well, not little but small for a walrus) baby walrus was found abandoned, only four to six weeks old.

Walrus' are very touchy-feely, social creatures, so he needed the love and care of rescuers from the Alaska SeaLife Center.

They played with him, fed him milk from a huge bottle and even laid back against a wall as he waddled over to cuddle up to them.

Too CUTE!

Check out the video (above) to see the world's cutest baby walrus!

Jennifer Aniston Has Pet Chickens??

Filed under: Jennifer AnistonPetsChickens

It's no secret that Jennifer Aniston is a HUGE dog lover.

But she's keeping some new pets on her new property.

Chickens!

She didn't originally go out looking to get some feathery new friends, but now she's glad she has them.

When she got her new property, she found a chicken coop there… and it was full of chickens.

We guess the original owner just left them behind?

Well instead of giving them up (or even worse: eating them!) she decided to take good care of them.

She said:

"They're very social animals, and they like it when you visit them with a cup of coffee in your hand. And according to my groundskeeper, they love pasta."

Sounds like she's enjoying having some chicken buddies to hang out with and give pasta to!

Must be hard now though with having chickens for friends… must make it difficult to enjoy Chick-fil-A.

LOLz!

Monkeys Cover Their Eyes When They Wanna Be Alone

Filed under: Science!Monkey

OMGEZZ! Goawaaaay!!

Mandrills the biggest member of the monkey family and apparently the most easily annoyed.

Experts have noticed when the monkeys want to be left alone they cover their eyes with there hands.

Apparently it's a gesture that has never been seen before, and experts believe it is evidence of social culture among animals. They believe one of the mandrills made up the gesture, made it cool, and passed it on to her pals. (kinda like saying "that's what she said.")

Evolutionary biologist Mark E. Laidre says they don't do it to block the sun cause their eyes remain open.

I just seems like a matter of time before they start flipping us off!
