Who Woke Me Up?!

Who Woke Me Up?!

YouTuber Tal Solomon’s pet dog snores as loud as a human. He recorded her sleeping then gave her a rude and meta awakening. Not good enough doggo. Next time try to snore so loudly that you’ll wake yourself in real time. That’s how we do.

Why We Domesticated Chickens

Why We Domesticated Chickens

(PG-13: Language) YouTuber Sam O’Nella Academy woke up just in time for a New Year’s episode. It’s about how chickens evolved to be seasonal egg factories, and how ancient humans tricked the bird into laying eggs all the time. It involves bamboo, egg puns, and Croatia.

Add this to your playlist of feel good videos. YouTuber FrostPanic nicked a video of a hedgehog giving in to a belly rub and set it to a smooth jazz cover of the Green Hill Zone theme song from the original Sonic game. So that’s where he spends the rings.

Fox is Your Friend Now

Fox is Your Friend Now

“I love you, but you have to let me go home.” We bet YouTuber henry hoffman didn’t expect he’d be saying those words that day. Much less to a fox wandering the streets of London. We have a feeling he just missed out on a young adult fantasy adventure.

Bentley’s Big Adventure

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.

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.

“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.

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

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.
