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

Five New Wild Ass Foals Get Wild And Sassy At Saint Louis Zoo

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredDonkeyZebra

Damn! Look at those wild ass foals!

Those are some wild ass Wild Asses!

They look like donkey-zebras (zonkeys? debras?) and they're just so stinkin' cute!

Five Somali Wild Ass foals were born at the Saint Louis Zoo and they're extra special because these wild ass Wild Asses are endangered!

They are from the desert areas of Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia with less than 1,000 living in the wild (ass)!

So every single one of these little asses is not only super cute, but also super important for the survival of their species.

Who here likes cute asses? Who wants to watch them jump and jiggle around??

Check out the video (above) to see some asses shaking at the Saint Louis Zoo!

Congratulations, Humanity, You've Let The Western Black Rhino Go Extinct

Filed under: Sad SadEndangeredRhinos

The western black rhino is officially extinct now. Well, that sucks!

We previously mentioned one wildlife group already declared the Western Black Rhino extinct.

Originally, we thought they might have jumped the gun a little, seeing as how the World Wildlife Fund had estimated there were still about 4,000 of the rhinos left.

Well now, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the largest conservation network, has declared the subspecies totally extinct.

Dead. Gone. Donezo.

Poached into extinction by heartless poachers. Thanks for that.

Rare Turtle Born At Tennessee Aquarium!

Filed under: Cuteness!Sea CreaturesZooTurtle

Cute rare turtle born at Tennessee Aquarium is super adorbz!

This is wonderful news! A rare Keeled Box Turtle was recently born for the second time in Tennessee Aquarium history!

The Keeled Box Turtle has been over-collected in the wild, for food and pet trade and so their numbers aren't great.

There are less than 20 Keeled Box Turtles spread across the U.S.'s zoos, so this little baby is extra special!

Ahhh! He's so stanky cute too!

Look at how tiny he is! When he was born he only weighed

African Hunting Dog Puppy Is Insanely CUTE!!

Filed under: ZooPuppyDog

Edinburgh Zoo has the cutest new African Hunting Dog puppy!!

Edinburgh Zoo celebrated a first time birth just a few days ago…

An African Hunting Dog puppy!!

Jet, the pack's non-dominant female, gave birth to the little pup, doing a huge favor for her species.

There are less than 5,500 African Hunting Dogs left in the wild so this puppy is double extra special!

Hunting Dogs need a very large area to roam in to be able to remain sustainable.

The problem is their habitat is being fragmented by development and their population is threatened by farmers who hate them even though the Dogs rarely ever attack livestock.
