Absurd Creatures: Fish That Walk

Absurd Creatures: Fish That Walk

WIRED looks one of nature’s stranger creations – the mudskipper, an odd little dude who’s somewhere between fish and reptile, able to crawl out of the water and walk on land, while still breathing through water it stores in its cheeks. Also, they remind us of Ren & Stimpy.

Planet Earth II: Iguana vs. Snakes

Planet Earth II: Iguana vs. Snakes

Shot in Galapagos, this excerpt from Planet Earth II sees a newly hatched marine iguana surrounded by racer snakes, which had already devoured most of the hatchling’s kin. Apparently, this is the first time that snakes have been seen hunting en masse. More here.

Pregnant Dog X-Ray

Pregnant Dog X-Ray

This amazing x-ray image has been floating around for a while now, but it’s too awesome not to share. The folks at O’Mal Alaskan Malamutes posted this pic of one of their dogs while it carried a huge litter of deadly miniature xenomorphs cute and cuddly puppies.

Komodo Dragon in the Bathroom

Komodo Dragon in the Bathroom

“So the next problem we have is how to get a dragon out of the toilet.” BBC’s Planet Earth II shares an unnerving moment in Indonesia, in which cameraman Mark MacEwen came back to his hotel room to find an unwanted visitor in the loo. By the end we find out why it was in there.

Baby Pandas Are Jerks

Baby Pandas Are Jerks

Panda Watch! A zookeeper at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding attempts to clean up the leaves in one of their exhibits, but the baby pandas have no interest in letting her get her job done… in the most adorable way possible.

Mellow Husky Is Mellow

Mellow Husky Is Mellow

While most of the dogs we know either splash around like madmen in the water or make a hasty retreat, Picha Puri Zo’s Siberian husky dog is about as chill as they get, and enjoys floating around the pool at doggy daycare like a sun-worn vacationer on an inflatable pool raft.

Life-Size Chew Toy

Life-Size Chew Toy

Jolene the golden retriever loves to play with her fuzzy green Gumby toy, so what better way to make her day than for her human to dress up as a giant-size version of her favorite toy. Her first reaction is one of disbelief, but quickly turns to utter bliss.

Animals Being Weirdos

Animals Being Weirdos

The Pet Collective presents a compilation of some of the weirdest pet behaviors, from strange sounds, to goofy poses, to animals too clever for their own good, and some downright stupid ones.

Heathens: Animal Cover

Heathens: Animal Cover

All my friends are kitties, take it slow. Insane Cherry reworks yet another track, this time taking on Twenty One Pilots’ hit Heathens, and supplementing it with the barks, meows, squawks, and cries of animals.

Deer Goes for a Skip

Deer Goes for a Skip

The beautiful purple and orange hues of dawn breaking over England’s Poole Harbor are usually enough motivation for Dave Mott to walk his dog along the shore. But one day, he came across something extra special. A solitary Japanese Sika deer bounding along the beach.

Dog Sucks at Hide-and-seek

Dog Sucks at Hide-and-seek

K-9 he ain’t. YouTuber niko gleeva and james’ pet dog Niko is astoundingly bad at playing hide-and-seek. We’d like to think that he’s intentionally being daft because he knows it endears himself to his masters even more.

Animals with Eyes in Front

Animals with Eyes in Front

Imgur user Kiyoi decided to see what the world might look like if animals had evolved like humans – with eyes on the front of their heads. Not only would they be more susceptible to predators approaching from the sides, they’d just look plain stupid.

I Just Died in Your Paws Tonight

I Just Died in Your Paws Tonight

Roman Wilde was watching an amusing video of a long-haired cat getting a blissful blow dry when he realised it was missing something – a soundtrack. So here ya go. Now the video is even more perfect.

Most Expensivest Kittens

Most Expensivest Kittens

2 Chainz and his DJ E. Sudd met with the owner of JumpnSpots to check out some of the latter’s crazy expensive kittens. The cattery is known for its “ocicats”, a mixed breed that’s playful and looks like an ocelot. They also have half-serval kittens that go for $15K each.

Breadface Killah

Breadface Killah

Artist Liam Underwood mashed up a video of three dogs that are each wearing a slice of bread to Denzel Curry’s Ultimate to create this unholy mashup. A masterpiece by two bored people. You’ll want to turn the volume down.

Feeding Bald Eagles

Feeding Bald Eagles

Bald eagles are incredibly beautiful and majestic, but we’d still be afraid they’d peck our eyeballs out (or worse) if we got too close. Not so for Alaskan fisherman Jessie Peck, as he tosses out some scraps of fish to a flock of the big birds.

Stranger Pugs

Stranger Pugs

A superfluous bit of internet fluff with Doug the Pug replacing the cast of Stranger Things. While the look on Dustin’s face is priceless, and Eleven’s pipe cleaner headgear is amusing, it’s Barb’s outfit that’s 100% spot on.

Rally Car vs Dog Close Call

Rally Car vs Dog Close Call

It’s every rally driver’s worst nightmare – an animal runs into the middle of the course. Most of the time it results in a nasty collision or the car running off the road to avoid it. Not so for this scrappy pup, and equally lucky rally drivers, who must have someone looking out for them.

Dog Heaven

Dog Heaven

This brief video of a dog named Chris blissfully lying in a pool filled with tennis balls pretty much sums up the ultimate canine fantasy. Looks like Barkhaus Miami is the place to stay if you like the finer things in dog life.

Bear Takes a Seat

Bear Takes a Seat

A reminder that not every encounter with a bear ends up like The Revenant. While shooting wildlife pics, this photographer was approached by a brown bear who decided to sit down right next to him. If it weren’t shot back in 2014, we’d be wondering if it were Adam Savage.

Animal Bloopers

Animal Bloopers

We’re on the tail end of the dog days of summer, so now is the perfect time to check out the best bloopers, fails and attacks with all sorts of animals from News Be Funny. The Greek reporter with the horse is an instant classic. (Thanks, Comedy Wizard!)

Squirrel Steals a GoPro

Squirrel Steals a GoPro

We’re not sure what it is with animals and action cameras, what with seagulls, octopi, and lions taking a liking to the gadgets. Recently, Viva Frei set the diminutive GoPro Session camera on the ground in a park, and a squirrel decided to take it for a trip into the trees.

Catching a Horse Nap

Catching a Horse Nap

While out checking on her horses, UK farmer Lisa Brown found herself turned into a human pillow by a equine named “Jimmy.” We’re not sure Lisa will be getting any rest, but Jimmy seems quite content with his new headrest.

The Shining Star of Losers Everywhere

The Shining Star of Losers Everywhere

In 2003, a failing small town horse track in Japan made a desperate gamble: hype up Haru Urara, a horse with a record of 0-88. The country rallied around her story, “a message about the value of trying hard even when no one’s looking.” Ganbatte kudasai!

Moped Kitty

Moped Kitty

We’re guessing it’s either Take Your Cat to Work Day in Thailand, or this cat got his claws stuck in this dude’s back before he left the house, and just went along for the ride. Either way, kitty actually seems to be enjoying the breeze.

Cat from Planet X

Cat from Planet X

We have every reason to believe that the alien invasion has begun. Our undisputable proof? This cat, who has clearly been taken over by a being from another world. And if you think the video has been doctored, you’re right. But the original is even weirder.

Happy Teeth

Happy Teeth

Like many dogs, this bullmastiff enjoys poking his head out of the car to enjoy the breeze. The way the wind catches his jowls and exposes his incisors and canines, this guy appears to be precisely 50% dopey and 50% demonic. And 100% thrilled.

Dancing Nathan

Dancing Nathan

Nathan, a Chinese crested dog really likes to dance. Here, he gets his groove on to an updated version of the classic What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor? Oh, and nobody shaved his belly with a rusty razor – Nathan is naturally hairless.

Blah Blah Blah Dog

Blah Blah Blah Dog

This dog has a whole lot of nothing to say, and we’re okay with that. It’s certainly an improvement over the standard “woof” and “bark” sounds we’re used to hearing from our noisy mutts.

Secrets of Shark Island

Secrets of Shark Island

The Revillagigedo Islands are known as Mexico’s little Galapagos – they’re small yet teeming with life, including dozens of endemic species. The Smithsonian explored the smallest island, Roca Partida, a diving spot known for its congregation of sharks, whales and more.

What If Dog Was One of Us?

What If Dog Was One of Us?

One trick pony Insane Cherry’s latest tune is a redo of Joan Osborne’s 1995 hit, featuring his (un)usual menagerie of dogs, cats, goats, and other animals lending both vocals and instrumentation to the track.
