Twin Red Pandas Born In Auckland Helping Save Their Species While Being Insanely Adorable!

Filed under: Cuteness!PandaAwwwwwWomb For Two

Who knew conserving a species could be so dang adorable???

Not us!!!

Well the Auckland Zoo got a double whammy recently as the welcomed a pair of Nepalese red panda twins, and in addition to being the cutest thing we've seen since little Kayden first discovered rain, they're also helping to save their species!!

The population of red pandas in the wild continues to decline, so their birth was HUGE news! Oh, and did we mention they're freaking adorable?!?!?

The gender of the little cuties wont be determined until march, and that's when they'll also been named! But until then, we can just bask in their overall amazingness!

Ch-ch-check out more pics of the twinzies (below)!

Lions Cubs Co-Parented By Entire Pride Of Big Cats!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooLions

Lion cubs at zoo basel are parented by the entire pride!

Zoo Basel has lion cubs and they're so cute we're about to quit everything and go run away to live in their lion enclosure.

There are four young, male lion cubs running around the zoo because two of the zoo's female lions, Okoa and Uma each gave birth to two cubs.

The babies were born only four days apart. Zoo officials will eventually need to DNA test the cubs and mamas to figure out whose baby is whose.

What's nice to see is that the cubs are all raised together by the females of the pride, just like in the wild.

The cubs' father (just one father) Mbali, has actually stayed in the picture, even though the males are normally removed from the nurturing environment.

He must be a total sweetheart! No danger is posed to his babies.

These lil' cubbies are part of the European Endangered Species Programme and so they're super important to creating sustainable lion populations!

So great, so cute, so totes amazeballs! Go lions, go!!

Hunter Becomes The Hunted! Black Rhino Hunting Permit Auction Winner's Family Threatened!!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFamilyScary!EndangeredRhinosHunting

Hunter who won endangered black rhino hunting permit auction is having his and his family's lives threatened!

Would you pay $350,000 to put your family's life in danger AND murder an endangered species??

Sounds kinda way ridiculous but that's pretty much what's going on for Corey Knowlton.

Knowlton paid $350,000 to the Dallas Safari Club Auction for a super rare permit to hunt an endangered black rhino.

Animal conservationists everywhere are freaking out that this hunting permit even exists.

Knowlton has tried to explain to his critics how letting him buy the permit has sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to a cause that will actually SAVE more black rhinos, but also how it's okay to kill one… as long as it's specific.

The Namibian government has apparently picked out specific rhinos that can and SHOULD be killed because they're not only too old to breed but they're also grumpy old men who pose an actual threat to healthy, young rhinos.

Leighton Meester And Adam Brody Get Romantic On A Dog-Walking Date

Filed under: Love LineAdam BrodyLeighton MeesterCuteness!Dog

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody were walking their dogs out on a sunny El Lay day!

Leighton Meester and her soon-to-be hubby Adam Brody already look like a married couple!

The duo were spotted out for an early morning walk on Sunday, strolling through sunny El Lay with their two vastly different dogs. Adam was walking his big, beautiful dog, which looked to be maybe a pitbull mix, while Leighton's li'l dog is clearly just an adorable little furry mutt.

We'd love to see if Leighton was wearing her engagement ring, especially since the last time she stepped out, she was going ring-free, but the cold chilly air kept her hands hidden inside her sweater.

We hardly ever get to see these two together so if a sweet dog walk is what gets them out and about, then Merry Chrismukkah to us!
