The latest animal video to go viral shows an adorable little penguin at the Cincinnati Zoo who seems to delight in being scratched by one of his keepers. In fact, he likes it so much he produces a completely bizarre noise. It's hard to watch this and not imagine that the bird is actually just a little, black-and-white human being. Not only is the video super cute, it's another reminder that many animals aren't so different from us (which is an odd idea for many people).
When a group of dog rescuers arrived at the market to show the dogs available for adoption, somebody had left 12 puppies on the street – 8 of them were approximately 5 weeks old. In shock, the rescuers didn’t know what to do. The group had recently canceled several adoption days at the market because of bad weather, so they were over their capacity with puppies still needing to be adopted out. Also, the abandoned puppies were so small that they needed to be fed every two hours, including at night. That’s when a spayed stray dog approached, lay down beside the shoe box where the puppies were sleeping, and began caring for them.
Generally useless facts, in a generally useless order, about four-legged, two-legged, six-legged, eight-legged, too-many-to-count-legged, and unlegged creatures that walk, jump, crawl, climb, clamber, swim, fly, squirm, creep, or burrow around us. Don't worry; they're mostly harmless. The closest animal to the "antelope" mentioned in Home on the Range is the pronghorn ( Antilocapra americana ) which is not a true antelope.
The following graphic shows some of the things that we have in common with our animal friends—and some of the differences that humans can only envy. Respect!
