Sparky is indeed the talker! He’s a red Lory and when he gets going it’s a sight to see.
Thankfully once Sparky started up on his recent gab fest, his owner rushed to grab a camera to record it all. What transpires is hilarious. Sparky continually will ask “What do you want?” Sparky then goes into everything from bananas to wanting to go outside. In between he even throws in some cat sounds for good measure! Really funny bird and it would certainly be a trip to have a pet like Sparky. Check out his antics and share with all of your animal loving friends and family!
A ball thrower for a dog is a clever tool to keep your dog entertained for long periods of play!
This dog received a ball thrower used for tennis training. And he definitely took to it! Imagine not having to rely on your lazy owner to toss the ball around! Now you just load this guy up and launch away for hours of play! Pretty cool and this dog is clearly having a blast using it!
Underneath the surface of the water lies an entirely different world.
Both the terrain and the creatures that inhabit the deep waters are other-worldly. Thankfully, man has not yet found a way to dominate this underworld. The creatures own it and call the shots down here. But every now and then they do surface! Sometimes these ocean creatures are lurking only a few feet from the surface. Case in point are these Humpback whales who are not far below, and are going to pop up in epic fashion! One boater get’s an enormous surprise as this pod pops up right next to the boat, creating both shock and complete amazement at the rare witnessing of these animals so close, and above the water’s surface!
You may have witnessed the guilt-ridden expressions on dogs once they are busted eating someone else’s food, but what happens when a chipmunk is totally busted in similar fashion?
This guy is nailed as he’s been breaking into a backyard bird feeder. When he realizes he is busted, his surprise look is priceless! Not only does this little guy freeze, but slowly he begins spitting out all the stolen feed he was storing in his mouth! The cameraman couldn’t help but comment how gross all of his spitting out of food was, but there’s no denying that it’s also more than a bit funny, and even kind of cute. This little guy was probably stocking up on feed for hibernation time. Often they will grab a bunch and store it in their big, puffy cheeks, so they can transport it back to their own home. But this guy feels so much shame that the food slowly dribbles out. You can almost hear him saying, “bird feed, what bird feed?”
Check out this amazing capture of a chipmunk caught red-handed and his priceless reaction! Share with all of your animal loving friends and family!

Cookie the penguin is a real trip. He has bumblefoot and has to wear a bandage which needs to be changed everyday.
That’s the main reason they have him inside, but there is another reason why they like having Cookie around. After finding out how crazy Cookie gets when he is petted and tickled, this woman desperately wanted to capture it on video.
It seems past attempts haven’t been successful, and here it does not look like Cookie is ready for the camera this time either. But alas, he gives in and puts on his little show. He certainly loves to be petted and shows it! He flaps his wings around and squeals in joy! This is a must-see penguin video that is way too cute!

For several weeks two small dogs were scrounging for food and trying to survive in a sewer underneath the 5 freeway in Los Angeles. Thankfully Hope for Paws arrived there in time and rescued the dogs.
It wasn’t without difficulty though, as Eldad Hagar and Vanessa Enriquez crawled through a long narrow sewer tunnel to reach the animals and when they got there the dogs were naturally scared of the newcomers. The brother dog protected his sister as the rescuers approached. It would take patience and a lot of coaxing to bring the brother and sister around and earn trust. They were able to then be caught, but had major issues about being separated.
Cola and Pepsi were successfully brought back and are now being cared for at Maltese Rescue California.
Check out this heartwarming rescue story and share with friends and family so this brother and sister can find a new home!

It is truly a tragic reality, that in so many places throughout the world, poachers hunt wild animals in order to illegally sell them to people wanting exotic pets. It is common for babies to be kidnapped; they often go into shock, suffer from hunger and dehydration, and die before being sold.
The cruelty of taking animals out of their natural habitat, who are frequently taken from their mothers before they are developmentally ready, is just heartbreaking. Thanks to the many animal-lover/advocates, like TV host Frank Cuesta, whom you will see in the video below, many animals get rescued and returned to the wild. Cuesta resides in Thailand, where he hosts a show that has been compared to what Steve Irwin used to do.
Cuesta is the hero of this story of a rescue of two baby otters, after he was tipped off as to their location, before they could be sold on the black market. Having studied veterinary medicine, Cuesta knows that these orphaned otter pups not only have to have limited human exposure, but actually need to be trained to be afraid of people before being reintroduced into the wild. This is necessary for their safety and for sustaining the otter population.
Unless you speak Spanish you won’t understand exactly what Cuesta is tenderly saying to the pups he has saved, but you will get the gist of it. Hearing the darling babies squeaking as they are finally fed, is simply joyful, as is the fact that they will safely be returned to the wild.

With the help of veterinarians, 3D designers, and a local artist, Freddy the tortoise was able to receive a hand-painted, 3D-printed hull after losing most of her shell in a devastating forest fire. Freddy was found after the fire left him with burned forelegs and a damaged hull. Freddy had lost 85 percent of her shell, and over the next months, it continued falling off. Cicero Moraes told Inside Edition that his team decided to create the world’s first 3D printed hull for the animal.
