    Google recently hired a camel named Raffia to carry one of its 360-degree Trekker cameras to capture a street view of Abu Dhabi's Liwa Oasis. Not a bad idea, Google, but I would have hired a flying carpet and captured the images while simultaneously making love to a beautiful ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Boo (solid name for a fainting goat) leaving his favorite gazebo in style (note: fainting goats don't actually faint, they're conscious the whole time, their bodies just lock up painlessly). Apparently Boo loves spending time in his gazebo, but then faints e... / Continue →

    Because Australia, this is a video of two kangaroos duking it out in a suburban neighborhood. Presumably over a lady. They look so crazy it almost seems fake. I never realized how strong kangaroo's tails were and how much they use them to balance, especially when kicking the... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a bunch of baby sea turtles being released to scamper down into the ocean on Lankayan Island in Malaysian Borneo. Fun fact: did you know the sex of baby sea turtles depends on the temperature of the sand they're incubated in? Higher temperatures decre... / Continue →

    Meet Baby Ben, a calf born at the Vale Wood Farm in Pennsylvania with a giant number 7 on its head and named after Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who shares the number 7. When reached for comment about the coincidence, the cow appeared to have no idea what ... / Continue →

    This is a video of two koala bears arguing with voices that sound like a cross between a party blower and a dog's squeaky toy. No word what they were arguing about, but I suspect it had something to do with eucalyptus leaves. Fun fact: koala bears aren't actually bears, some ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of frogs gathering to watch a video of worms slithering around on a smartphone. The group starts off small, but grows quickly, with several viewers actually lunging at the screen for a disappointing snack. No word if the frogs were being lured there... / Continue →

    With the help of that weirdo that turned his dead cat into a quadrocopter, Dutch youngster Pepeijn Bruins now has a tri-copter created with the stuffed body of his beloved pet rat, Ratjetoe. Me? I would have just buried him...in an ancient Indian burial ground and brought him... / Continue →

    This is Pulguinha, the Steampunk Guinea Pig. He's wearing a pair of leather and brass wings courtesy of SkyPirate Creations. Nice cooling fan. So, how much time do you think animals that can't fly THINK about flying? My guess is a lot. Like, you think your dog or cat ever ... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a tiny hamster exploring his mansion and getting ready for work (read: eating breakfast four times) in the morning before zooming off in his car. It's pretty much the exact reason the internet exists. "The internet was made for p0rn." DON'T SAY ... / Continue →

    Nice video game console collection. This is a short video of how Austin Woods keeps track of his pet turtle -- with a helium balloon. Apparently Austin was tired of his turtle getting lost around his apartment, so he decided to rectify the situation. Wow, what a handsome lit... / Continue →

    This is a video of an otter eating his bowl of brown and crunchy while sitting at the dinner table like a person. It doesn't last long though before he's rolling around on top of the table like an animal. You're a heathen! "Says the guy who just picked up a piece of candy of... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Snoop Dogg hosting Plizzanet Earth episode 3, featuring a group of baboons tip-toeing their way across a pond. Also, this one seemed to have a lot more bleeped words than the past two episodes. Presumably because Snoop was revealing top-secret militar... / Continue →

    Because sometimes you want ALL dark meat, this are several shots of a rare Ayam Cemani Chicken of Indonesia. The birds are all black, every bit of them, except their blood. It kind of reminds me of Shadowmere from Skyrim. Man, I loved that horse. I might fire up the game to... / Continue →

    A Chinese chef was killed after a cobra bit his hand some twenty minutes after severing its head. The chef was preparing snake soup (a delicacy) and was bitten when he went to throw the snake's head away in the trash. Me? I would demanded a lowly busboy do it. 'By the time ... / Continue →
