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!

Watch This Bird Go From Ugly Duckling To Cute Fluffball!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooBirds

This bird goes from gross to gorgeous in only about a month!

St. Louis Zoo was lucky enough to become the proud host of a fluffy little Tawny Frogmouth chick back on November 2nd.

The zoo is part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) for this species, so it was very important this little birdie was well taken care of.

The zoo keepers made sure to help out the lil chick's parents, saying:

"Our goal is to always have the parents rear their own birds, but this pair is a pair of first-time parents and often times the learning curve is pretty steep, so we try to help out the parents if we can."

So they did what they could to make sure the little baby went from ugly duckling to cute fluffy young bird!

The transformation is pretty drastic and kinda way amazing!

Wanna see the bird go from gross to fluff??

Then check out the video AFTER THE JUMP!!

Capybara Pups Are So Freakin' Cute!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooCapybara

Newborn Capybara pups are so stupid cute it's ridiculous!

At Schönbrunn Zoo in Austria, a pair of Capybaras (the world's largest rodent species) knocked some furry boots!

After six months hanging out inside their momma's belly, a healthy litter of three capybara pups was born on November 29th.

Congrats on the cutie pups!!

The little babies are so ridiculously cute we can barely even handle it.

Seriously, don't stare at that pic too long or else you might lose your mind!

Even though these little babes are only a few days old, they're not only able to follow their momma around their enclosure… they're able to swim!!

That's right, with help from their webbed toes, the pups have already taken a dip in their pool. So ahmayzing!

These guys are basically giant guinea pigs and that sounds like the best thing ever.

Dog sized guinea pigs?? Sign us up!!

New Top Predator Dinosaur Discovered In Utah!

Filed under: Science!Dinosaur

Field Museum scientists have found a new "top predator" dinosaur in Utah!

This is really cool because this dino, dubbed Siats meekerorum, is a precursor to the T-Rex.

Siats was around tens of millions of years before the T-Rex and is part of the allosauroids' megaraptor subgroup. That sounds like it's an allosaurus (basically a T-rex) mixed with a giant velociraptor.

So basically just super terrifying!

At 4-tons and 30-feet-tall, Siats is the third-largest
