Baby Rhino Plays In Mud Puddles!!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredRhinos

Rhino

OMG! That little guy is so crazy cute, we don't know what to do!

At Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, Jamie, an Indian Rhinoceros, gave birth to a male calf named Jiyu.

His name means compassionate friend, and that's just too sweet!

The little baby and his mama are spending time "off exhibit," which means they're away from the public, bonding as a family in private.

There was a lot of heavy rain recently, so the two-week old calf gets to splash around in mud puddles!!

This little baybay is extra special, as it's estimated that there are under 3,000 Indian Rhinos left in the entire world.

So hopefully he grows up big and strong, and can start pumping out rhinos of his own!

But don't grow up too quick just to get to breeding. You're young, enjoy the mud puddles while you've still got them.

Yankees Minor League Prospect Mason Williams Is Taken Into Custody For DUI!

mason williams is arrested for dui(1)

Alcohol never leads to anything good!

Yankees' top minor-league prospect Mason Williams was arrested early this morning for driving under the influence in Tampa, and we're really saddened that an all-star would make such a mistake.

Williams was pulled over at 2:45 a.m. after police saw his Range Rover "weaving in the lane" and going between 50 to 53 mph in a 40 mph zone.

Once the 21-year-old showed "clues of impairment" a DUI traffic stop was conducted, and Mason had to perform a series of field sobriety exercises.

After the athlete failed the tests, cops noticed "additional clues of impairment," and he was arrested.

Lowry Park Zoo Gets A RARE Treat With Baby Okapi!

Filed under: Baby BlabberCuteness!ZooAwwwww

rare-baby-okpai-lowry-park-zoo-web.jpg

Have you ever heard on a okapi?!?!?! We sure haven't but we're madly in love with this little one!

Parents Zack and Betty welcomed this bundle of CUTEness in early January and the three week old is already 96 pounds!

There are only 100 okapis in captivity in the States, and they are currently listed as "Threatened" on the endangered species list.

This calf is the zoo's first birth of 2013 and we're sure the zoo will love having this new addition!

Congrats on the beautiful babe, Lowry Park!

10 Foot Alligator Thrashing Around A Tampa Neighborhood!

Filed under: AlligatorCrazzzzyWildlife

Why are alligators so ornery?? It's because of their medula oblongata, right? LOLz!

A gator is REALLY angry outside of a Florida home and police had to seal off the streets as the 10 foot beast thrashed around.

Unfortunately, police had to put down the gator after they wrangled him as he was too big to be released in the wild.

Sad…

Mystery Monkey Caught In Florida After THREE YEARS Of Cheesing It!

Filed under: Silly!Sad SadMonkeyRescueCrazzzzy

The jig is up for a rhesus macaque monkey after more than three years on the lam.

It's believed the monkey first cheesed it in 2009 and has been hiding out in the Tampa area for awhile. He even got his own Facebook page!

But he bit a woman in the neck and that just simply will not do.

The captured primate has been quarantined and if everything checks out, he'll be sent to a sanctuary with other monkeys.

He's even been given a name, Cornelius, from the Planet of the Apes.

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Okay, so maybe that was Caesar but you get the point…

LOLz! Silly monkey!
