White Moose

White Moose

After searching for almost three years, Hans Nilsson managed to capture video of an incredibly rare and awesome sight – an eight-year old moose that is pure white from his head to his toes, including his fuzzy antlers. If you ever visit Eda, Sweden, you might see him too.

Kurzgesagt: Life & Size Pt. 1

Kurzgesagt: Life & Size Pt. 1

Kurzgesagt kicks off a multi-part lesson that explains how an organism’s size drastically affects its evolution. For instance, droplets of water could be lethal to insects. So some of them evolved to repel even tiny particles of water.

Orchestra Dog

Orchestra Dog

During an outdoor concert being put on by the Vienna Chamber Festival in Izmir, Turkey, a stray dog decided to wander onto the stage and apparently liked what he heard. The pup settled right in as both a member of the audience and the orchestra. Who’s a good boy?

Animal Air Conditioning

Animal Air Conditioning

It’s Okay to Be Smart describes how prairie dogs as well as certain species of termites and ants build burrows and colonies with natural cooling and air circulation systems. They are all like tiny Willis Carriers.

If Animals Were Round

If Animals Were Round

The animators from Rollin’ Wild envision what the world would be like if all animals were round and puffy, as if they were balloon floats in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. While they’re definitely silly looking, we’re glad there’s such a thing as natural selection.

Coyote Peterson vs. Hot Wings

Coyote Peterson vs. Hot Wings

Brave Wilderness host and pain junkie Coyote Peterson sat down with Hot Ones to talk about his nickname, wearing a bee beard, fan requests, and more while experiencing new kinds of discomfort. Is no one going to talk about how he said “Reese’s Pieces”?

The Origin of Dogs

The Origin of Dogs

Ever wonder how these awesome animals went from wild wolves to docile house pets? The Atlantic looks at a fascinating recent theory that dogs were domesticated not once, but twice, in different parts of the globe, then came together as their masters migrated across the globe.

What Is Love: Animal Cover

What Is Love: Animal Cover

YouTuber Insane Cherry turns his insane animal sequencing skills to Haddaway’s 1993 dance hit What Is Love, with cats on bass and drums, dogs on synth, a bird on cymbals, and rooster and seal sealing the deal on vocals. We can’t stop bobbing our heads now.

Maru Turns 10

Maru Turns 10

It’s been a while since we posted a cat video around here, but we had to take a moment out of our busy day to celebrate an auspicious occasion – the 10th birthday of one of the Internet’s favorite cats – the curious, adorable, rotund, and box-loving Scottish Fold Maru.

Feisty Pets

Feisty Pets

They may look all cute and cuddly, but get on the wrong side of these stuffed animals, and they’ll bear their teeth, ready to attack their victim. We’re thinking you shouldn’t get them wet or feed them after midnight, just in case.

My Animal Weight

My Animal Weight

It’s easy to estimate how many boxers you are. But have you ever wondered how many animals you are by weight? That’s exactly what this simple website does. It’s surprisingly fun, though it’s sad knowing that it only takes four poodles to hold us down.

The Bucket

The Bucket

TheFieldLab mounted a camera at the bottom of a bucket filled with water, then placed it outdoors where various animals might drink from it. The unique perspective from beneath the surface is both silly and soothing.

Pelicans: Evolution of a Dive Bomber

Pelicans: Evolution of a Dive Bomber

Pelicans grab fish by swooping into shallow water at speeds up to 40 mph. Deep Look explains how these birds have evolved to help them survive and excel in their otherwise lethal hunting technique.

Cat vs. Illusion

Cat vs. Illusion

YouTuber Ryan Kotzin shows us that you don’t need a laser pointer to amuse and distract a cat. All you need is a piece of paper with a moving eye illusion printed on it. Cat, if you think that’s freaky, wait ’til you try it on catnip.

Dog: 1, Soccer Teams: 0

Dog: 1, Soccer Teams: 0

“Well that’s probably the best highlight of this game so far.” During a recent UK soccer match, a beagle decided to run on the field and join the festivities. It took more than 7 minutes to round up the energetic dog, but he certainly kept the fans amused during the long timeout.

Carrier Crab’s Spiny Shield

Carrier Crab’s Spiny Shield

National Geographic presents brief, but nonetheless fascinating look at a carrier crab, as he stomps around the ocean floor carrying a spiny sea urchin on his back to scare off predators. A few special guests hitch a ride for their own protection too.

Ducks on a Mission

Ducks on a Mission

Each day, hundreds of Indian Runner ducks make their way to their day jobs – eating snails that might otherwise damage crops at South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard. Benny Hill version here. Original footage via Reuters.

Literal Dog Sled

Literal Dog Sled

Truckee the labrador helps out people in distress as part of South Lake Tahoe’s Avalanche Rescue Dog Program. But when he’s not hard at work, he likes to slide down the slopes of Heavenly Mountain, occasionally chomping on the snow for a quick pupsicle.

LEGO Mechanical Bat

LEGO Mechanical Bat

LEGO builder Kristal – the “K” of JK Brickworks created this amazing kinetic sculpture, designed to mimic the wing movements of a fruit bat. Its wings flap up and down, sweep forward, and expand and contract. Jason Allemann walks us through how it works.

Cat, Fishing

Cat, Fishing

This cat is very excited at the prospects of a delicious dinner of fish, though one small obstacle stands in its way. Will kitty find a way to get the tasty sea creatures inside the aquarium, or will the fish have the last laugh?

Dog Vortex

Dog Vortex

This group of seven dogs likes to eat their meal together. As they gather around their circular bowl, an unusual phenomenon occurs, and they start to spin. We assume that as their speed increases, a black hole is formed. Though we did miss that day in astrophysics class.

Remote-controlled Bulldog

Remote-controlled Bulldog

We already know that it’s possible to bio-mechanically steer a cockroach, but that requires surgery. So to get his bulldog to go where he wanted him to on command, engineer William Osman came up with a harmless, and much sillier approach. Doggy action at 6:10.

The Archerfish

The Archerfish

The archerfish has both the name and the ability to fit right in Pokémon. It catches land-based critters by spitting on them, causing them to fall into the water. It’s so good at aiming that a scientist tested the extent of the archerfish’s intelligence.

Sharp Shirter Animal Shirts

Sharp Shirter Animal Shirts

Animals and t-shirts go together like peanut butter and chocolate. So there’s sure to be a design you love in Sharp Shirter’s collection of animal tees, which feature everything from an a kitten with an RPG launcher to sloth on a stripper pole, and of course, bear pong.

Turkey Go-Round

Turkey Go-Round

We’re just going to file this one under the “WTF” category. What this guy captured while driving through an office parking lot is strange indeed, as a group of three turkeys decided to endlessly chase each other around a tree trunk. We can’t wait for the turkey tilt-a-whirl to open.
