A video of a pair of twins falling asleep in their plates of spaghetti has become an online hit … as well it should.

22-month-old brothers who are sitting in high-chairs at a restaurant initially try to keep their eyes open as then enjoy their spaghetti bolognese. But tiredness soon wins over and the pair bob up and down, getting the messy sauce all over their faces.

Writing on YouTube mother Johanne Stetka said: "After a long morning of playing in the pool and building sand castles on the beach my twins could not stay awake to finish their lunch.

They were trying really hard and were really enjoying their food as you can see. Sleep v.s. tasty spaghetti.. sleep won! 

275x250.jpg An abandoned kitten and puppy at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home have dispelled the age old saying ‘fighting like dogs and cats’ by becoming best friends.

At just weeks old, Buttons the dog and Kitty the cat were both abandoned. Now they are now being hand-reared together at the animal home and have become very close.

In fact the inseparable pair are so close they sleep together, play together and even feed together.

Battersea Veterinary Nurse Sascha Taylor. She says: "Normally we’d hand rear puppies and kittens separately but we thought we could try putting them together as they are both so young.


We've previously met Maru, the Japanese cat who became an internet star by modeling haircuts with the aid of a cardboard box.


Videos of the hit moggie have each been viewed more than a million times and he has more than 10,000 Facebook fans and 15,000 followers on Twitter.

So when it became time to celebrate his 4th birthday, there was only one way to do it… with a compilation video featuring his highlights of the past 12 months.

As such you can see him fighting himself in a mirror and playing with paper bags and cardboard boxes. Happy Birthday Maru!


A pair of Welsh tourists who stole a penguin after breaking into an Australian theme park -- where they also swam with dolphins -- have been fined $1,000 (£637).


Rhys Owen Jones and Keri Mules appearer at Brisbane magistrates where they admitted the bizarre theft from Sea World on Queensland's Gold Coast.

It's said the duo woke up the morning after the crime bleary eyed and heavy headed to find the 13-inch tall seven-year-old fairy penguin named Dirk in their apartment, not knowing quite how he got there.

It turned out the pair, who were in Australia on working holidays, had broken into Sea World where they jumped in and swam with dolphins, let off a fire extinguisher in a shark enclosure and p-p-picked up the penguin.


It's never too early to start exercising. That's clearly what this baby thinks -- either that or he is desperate to watch cartoons on YouTube.


Little Jonas has become an online hit after being filmed doing chin-up exercises on a desk, despite only being nine-months-old.

Then nappy-wearing youngster is seen repeatedly lifting himself off the floor to get a better view of a clip from The Jungle Book playing on the computer screen.

Writing on YouTube his mother joked "We're working on teaching him to rock climb now." At least we THINK she was joking.



Babies find the strangest things amusing, from ripping paper to bubble popping dogs… and now even a vacuum cleaner is apparently enough to leave them in fits of hysterics.


A video which is currently surging on YouTube shows a cute baby giggling as his mother used a vacuum cleaner on the floor and his T-shirt.



A video of a golden retriever saving a puppy from a swimming pool has become an online hit… and rightly so.

In the clip, a distressed little pup can be seen doing doggie paddle (obviously) in the middle of the pool after apparently being thrown in.

But within seconds the lifeguard dog mother has jumped in and helped the pup reach the side of the pool by supporting her above the water with her snout.

Then, as the little dog struggled to get out the mother climbed out of the pool ran around and grabbed it by its scruff before dragging it to safety.

275x250.jpg Because we think any day only gets better with the addition of racing miniature pig -- here's some little porkers doing their think at Pennywell Farm.

Bosses there say that it took months of planning the course and training the pigs, but that it was all worth it because miniature pig racing has been a massive hit with visitors.

With obstacles like Bacon’s Brook and the Trough to contend with the pint sized porkers have to be at the peak of their physical fitness and on sizzling good form and it was 9 month old Red Runt who triumphed in the first race.
 
Pennywell’s owner Chris Murray says: "The pigs have been hamming it up, the visitors have been all out in supporting them and it’s odds on we have a classic activity in the making."

275x250.jpg A little puppy called Beyonce -- which had to be revived by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions when she was born -- is thought to be the world's tiniest.

The Dachshund mix was part of a litter of five born earlier this month to a mother who had been taken in by The Grace Foundation, which takes in unwanted animals.

Bosses from the organisation have submitted an application to the Guinness Book of World Records to see if Beyonce is the world's smallest puppy… or at least the smallest New York Times subscriber.


For many adults, learning to ski is one of the most difficult things they will do. Children however, find it considerably easier… like this little guy who can do it in his sleep.


Filmed by his dad the poor lad appears to have had such an exhausting day that he dozes off while still wearing his helmet and standing on his skis.

And while he rocks in his ski-boots for nearly a minute, the inevitable finally happens and he falls over backwards.


This playful golden retriever is Tom and despite being a dog, he likes nothing more than playing in children's parks.

Specifically the thrill-seeking pup loves going down a slide -- as this video so wonderfully shows.

In the clip Tom looks excited as his owner asks him "Would you like to go on the slide?" and then runs over to a helter-skelter and up the steps.

He then slips down the slide before bounding over to his owner safe in the knowledge he has just become an internet star.


A snowboarding opossum has become an online hit after demonstrating his skills on the slopes of a Pennsylvania ski resort… obviously.


Little Ratatouille -- who was wearing a stripy jumper and ski pass -- can be seen tearing up the slopes on his Burton Riglet Snowboard

Using his long tail for balance the marsupial snowboarder even appears to grin at a video camera mounted to the front of his snowboard.


A gorilla and rabbit have become best friends at a US zoo… yes you read that correctly a gorilla and rabbit really have become best friends.

Officials at a Pennsylvania zoo say the best buds have become inseparable since being introduced to each other last month.

Panda the Dutch rabbit had been put in the same enclosure as Samantha, a 47-year-old western lowland, because she is too old to be paired with another gorilla.

But while staff hoped seeing the rabbit would provide Samantha with a bit of stimulation, they did not expect her to start caring for it an sharing meals with it.


Because everyone likes an interspecies intermingling to brighten up their morning... here's a one-eyed cat making friends with a squirrel.


Not that you need any more information, but Mikey from New York apparently likes nothing more than sitting on the windowsill and watching the world go by through his one working eye.

And not too long ago the ginger tabby was doing just this when a plucky nut-eating squirrel appeared on the other side of the window and wanted to become his friend.

We say 'become his friend' though we're not exactly sure that was his plan, but that's what we want to believe.


Passengers onboard Delta Flight 486 from Atlanta to New York would have been forgiven for thinking they were imagining things when they heard the captain enquire: "Is anyone here allergic to penguins?"


But then, when a pair of foot-and-a-half tall penguins waddled down the aisle of the plane cruising at an altitude of 30,000 feet, they probably realised they weren't.

Pete and Penny -- aged 6 and 12 -- were travelling from Atlanta to New Yorkt to the premiere of "Frozen Planet," a new Discovery Channel documentary.

One passenger said: "This is video proof that penguins CAN fly -- and that they have absolutely no fear of flying at all! 


Many parents rely on a strong cup of coffee to keep them going while looking after a baby -- and this mother has found a way to get a caffeine fix without taking her eyes off her little one.


In a video entitled 'Baby making coffee' -- which has gone viral on YouTube -- a little tot can be seen preparing a coffer for her mother… and looking very cute in the process.

Sitting on a kitchen work surface, the Baby Barista opens the coffee machine for fresh water to be poured in before flipping the lid and removing the pod before adding another.

She then hits the button to produce the cup of coffee… and given how cute she looks we're even willing to forgive her for using a pod system and not grinding fresh beans.

Dogs teach baby how to chew toys (VIDEO)


They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks… but old dogs are perfectly capable of teaching tricks to babies, as this video shows.

Currently going viral, the video entitled 'Puggles teach baby to chew' starts off showing a dog munching on a toy, before panning over to a little boy lying on his belly.

After examining what the dog was doing the baby then proceeds to chew his toy in a very similar manner.

The video has already been viewed more than 140,000 times. It's not known if the dogs went on to teach the lad how to chase cats or pee up lamp-posts.


A photographer has used his humble iPhone and a whole lot of ingenuity to record impressive footage of animals which even David Attenborough would be proud of.

Mark Rober says that on a recent trip to the zoo, he noticed how desperate people were to get the attention of the gorillas so they could get a photo.

That's when he hit upon the idea of using the screen of his iPhone to let the animals he was filming, to see themselves… and sure enough the idea worked.

In fact it worked so well he went on to produce a 'Gorilla cam' -- consisting of a  iPhone mounted behind a mirror with a hole cut in it -- to get some even more impressive footage.

275x250.jpg It used to be that if you wanted to entertain a cat, you gave them a ball or a toy mouse… nowadays they apparently need an Apple iPad.

The RSPCA in Australia have developed an iPad app for cats which sees them play with a virtual ball of yarn and defend cheese from invading mice.

It's hoped the app could be used to enrich the lives of house-dwelling cats in Oz and promote the organisations 'Adopt a Cat Month'.

RSPCA man Michael Beatty said: "Basically, you place your iPad on the ground, start the game and your cat or kitten can interact with it on his/her own terms.


There's something about videos of interspecies animal friendships which its hard not to find adorable! Don't believe us... just click play.


This video shows a pet wolf getting along terrifically with a young kitten -- in fact they're getting on so well it looks like the cat has been fostered by the wolf.

Adam Bilsing, who uploaded the video in which the two animals can be seen cuddling up to each other and then the wolf picking up the kitten gently in its mouth, did so with the simple comment "... and we were worried"

We just hope that after the camera stopped rolling this cute scene didn't take a gory turn and become something a whole less cute.

275x250.jpg A letter from a three-and-a-half-year-old girl who wanted to know why Tiger Bread was called that when it looks more like a giraffe has seen the product renamed.

Little Lily Robinson had initially written to Sainsbury's after being confused by the product in her mother's shopping basket and offering a new name for it.

And after customer service man Chris King (aged 27 1/3) replied saying "renaming tiger bread giraffe bread is a brilliant idea" the exchange went viral online.

Now, after a Facebook campaign the supermarket has announced it is officially renaming the loaf. Well done Lily!

275x250.jpg A pair of abandoned kittens have become a online hit after a cats protection charity revealed that they have a combined 54 digits.

The polydactyl cats Ned and Fred -- who were taken in by Cats Protection in Gosport Town -- have a respective eight and ten extra toes than the typical cat.

Branch volunteer Kate Stapleford explains: “These two kittens were in poor condition when they arrived but with veterinary attention and a lot of TLC from their fosterer, Fred & Ned are now thriving.

"Fred and Ned are special in that as well as extra toes on the front paws, Fred has extra toes on his back paws. Our vet said he'd never seen that in 40 years in practice!


This dad is desperate to be his daughters favourite parent… but she's not having any of it. As this battle of wits proves.

In this video -- which has gone viral on YouTube -- an Aussie dad can been heard asking his young daughter a series of innocent questions.

After asking her what noise a fish makes and where her ear is, he then slips in the query "Who is your favourite, Dad or Mum?"

Quick as a flash she says "Mum" prompting him to up his game in getting video proof of his parenting superiority by bribing her with sweets.


Some YouTube videos need a lot of explaining… but for others all you need to say is: "Here's a penguin fetching a newspaper." This is one of those.



Of all the things we expected to see go viral today, a quick-tongued lizard playing a game on a smartphone wasn't one of them.

But what do we know, because this video of a Bearded Dragon lizard licking virtual ants in the Ant Smasher game, is fast becoming an online hit.

The powerful-tongued creature even racks up an impressive score as he lashes out at the digital ants on the screen and has been praised by online commenters.

So far around 1.5 million people have watched the 57-second clip and it's expected to have encouraged some people to buy a Bearded Dragon of their own… which is a bit excessive just to get a high score.

275x250.jpg A cheeky seal pup has wandered into a house in New Zealand and made himself at home... by chilling on the sofa.

Video footage shows the moments after Annette Swoffer was gobsmacked to find the creature in her home in the coastal town of Tauranga.

It's thought the seal had travelled from the nearby harbour, across a road, up a driveway, through a cat door and into the property owner's lounge.

Experts say the NZ fur seals are believed to be breeding on Motunau Island, which is approximately 12km offshore and at it's not unusual for weaned pups to wander into odd places.

DOC marine mammal expert Laura Boren said: ""They commonly go up streams, into people's gardens and so on but this is the first I'd heard of one going into a house.


Some videos need a long and detailed explanation. This one doesn't… it's five unadulterated minutes of happy dogs riding in cars.
Enjoy.

The slow-motion footage shows - filmed by our new hero Keith Hopkin -- shows the pooches joyous jowls flapping in the wind as they drive.

Remember, no matter how much you enjoy watching the five minute video, Mia, Bodhi, Charlo, Snickers, Pinky, Clancy, Assagi, Ronnie, Jethro, Gracie, Suki, Chloe and Kiwi enjoyed filming it more.


It's not everyday you get to see a bear with impeccable manners -- but it could be from now on if you keep coming back here.

That's because this video shows the moment a bear at a wildlife reserve in the US waved at a girl as she drives past.

Sitting in his enclosure at Olympic Game Farm in Washington, the huge Kodiak bear has presumably been waved at by more than a few children.

Well, it appears he'd been paying attention, because as the girl waves goodbye he picks up a paw and waves right back.

275x250.jpg Meet Daniel, he's a cat with a difference -- he's got 26 toes. Not only that, but his digit-laden paws have helped save an animal rescue centre in the US.

The once-unwanted orange-and-white tabby became the face (or should that be  feet) of a campaign to raise money for cash-strapped Milwaukee Animal Rescue Center.

After discovering their rent was to be doubled, the animal shelter decided to move into a new location and needed to raise $70,000. so they looked to Daniel who suffers from polydactylism.

So they asked people to donate a dollar for each of Daniel's toes and thanks to the internet it looks like they will be safe. Normal cats have 18 toes, if you were wondering.


With positions including downward-facing dog, we've always thought Yoga was a but more canine than feline -- but this little guy has other ideas.


The cat in question can be seen climbing onto and then riding his owner as she performs a yoga workout.

Unperturbed by her exercise passenger, the woman continues to work her way through a series of positions as the kitty sits on her back an bottom.

And while the cat seems surprisingly chilled, we can't imagine it was that relaxing for the exerciser performing the routine with cat claws sticking in her back.


Dog owners are usually forced to battle their pooch when it comes to bath time, most simply don't like the experience -- Casper however, appears to love the water.

In fact, the adorable Labrador Retriever likes being bathed so much that a video of him enjoying a soak in the family tub has become a hit on YouTube.

The clip 'Casper the bath loving dog', which shows owner Chris rubbing Casper's soapy belly as the dog lies in the bath, has already been viewed more than 250,000 times.

It's also made Casper -- who seems in his element with just his snout and paws sticking up from the water -- something of a star and has been featured on US TV shows.


A video of a porcupine enjoying a corn on the cob so much that it squeals when someone tries to take it away has become an online hit. Obviously.


Teddy Bear the North American porcupine was recorded by staff at Zooniversity (a mobile teaching zoo) after they realised he was being particularly grumpy.

After giving Teddy an ear of corn, they tried to take it from him to see (or rather hear) how he responded… and oh boy did he.

He released a bizarre series of squeals which bosses say was so impressive they've been contacted by two major TV networks wanting to use the footage.


An incredibly cute and sleepy dormouse has become an online hit -- without even having to wake up to do so.

Footage shot by Surrey Wildlife Trust shows the dozing rodent being discovered nesting boxes in woods near Leatherhead.

The cute critter -- lying on his back snoring with his paws tucked in -- is then held in the palm of a nature officer before being weighed and sexed.

Writing on YouTube a spokesperson for Surrey Wildlife Trust said: "Don't worry, the dormouse wasn't dying or having breathing problems.

275x250.jpg Five Humboldt penguins were the first to try out a London ice rink recently -- amusing passing commuters on their way to work in the process.

The penguins were brought in from Heythrop Zoological Gardens in Oxfordshire to give the rink an inaugural waddling.

And though native to the coasts of Chile and Peru, the penguins seemed sufficiently happy with a chunk of ice in the heart of the City of London’s square mile.

Described as London’s only “turn up and skate” outdoor ice rink, Broadgate Ice, is now open to the public… who don't look nearly as cute.


A video of a young boy being busted strutting his stuff to Smooth Criminal while he did the dishes has become an online hit.

Little Frankie had asked his dad to put the Michael Jackson hit on the stereo while he did the dishes… and it soon becomes clear why.

To start with the lad can be seen nodding his head to the music, before busting out a series of more and more impressive dance moves.

By the end of the footage -- shot by dad on a mobile phone -- he's really going for it… until he sees the camera and his laughing father.


A couple in the US saw their marriage get off to a stormy start -- when a dust storm rolled in during their outdoor ceremony.

Gus and Jennifer Luna had hoped their wedding in Florence, Arizona, would be a memorable day, but they never expected this...

As the happy couple were exchanging vows a dense dust storm hit, covering them in dust and almost blowing them away.

This clip from their wedding video shows how they tried to rush through the ceremony and were determined not to give up despite Jennifer struggling to keep her veil on and her dress down.


A motorcyclist in South Africa abandoned an endurance race he was competing in to save a calf which had fallen into a canal.

Johan Gray had apparently been taking part in the race in Gauteng when he spotted the animal which was unable to get out of the water.

As this footage from his head-cam shows, the 46-year-old quickly pulled over and tried to rescue the animal using several techniques to get it to safety.

Eventually he banded the creature’s front legs and managed to pull it out before loading it onto his bike and returning it to a farmer.


A video of a young baby breaking out of his cot and then trying to destroy the evidence has become an online hit.

The clip shows little baby Dayne being put in his cot along with his twin brother for a nap… but he apparenty has other ideas.

Once his mother -- who set up the camera to work out how wh was getting out -- has left the room Dayne looks at his brother, the two knowing what is about to happen.

He then vaults over the side of the cot and bangs down onto the carpet below… before quickly taking the camera out like a master crook.


Shoppers at a grocery store in Alaska were shocked when they found a bear cub climbing over the fruit and vegetable aisles.

Staff at the Tatsuda's IGA supermarket in Ketchikan say the supercute bear strolled into the store through the automatic doors.

After wandering over to the fruit display the baby bear jumped up -- prompting those who weren't busy taking photos on their mobiles to call police.

Officers tried to coax the cub dow, but eventually a customer stepped in, grabbed the baby bear and carried it outside to be released… luckilly he wasn't greeted by mom.

275x250.jpg Sure these little puppies look cute now -- but in not too long they'll be elite crime-fighters police attack dogs.

That's because the litter of seven German Shepherd puppies have been taken on by West Midlands Police after being born through their breeding scheme.

The four boys and three girls -- just four weeks old -- are the first litter since West Midlands Police were adopted into the Kennel Club’s Assured Breeder Scheme.

The pups will now be placed with volunteers before being paired up with officers and start their training at 15 months old.


Dogs have a seemingly endless desire to play fetch, but what to do when their owner doesn't want to? This, that's what!


A clever Jack Russell called Sid has become an online hit after learning how to play fetch with himself.

Filmed in London the self-sufficiant pooch can be seen initially trying to encourage owner Roland Muldoon to play with him.

But when he doesn't the pup grabs a ball in his mounth, hurls it down a set of steps and proceeds to chase the ball and return it to the top of the stairs.


Because we think everyday is better when it starts with a musically inclined animal, here you go -- meet a piano playing pug.


This little 58-second clip -- which clearly owes something to piano cat -- is currently storming the internet, and it's not hard to see why.

Chocoholic, a black pug from Japan, can be seen 'playing' a toy keyboard -- while wearing a red top and sparkly gold bow tie.

Personally we're not that impressed by his musical cat-alogue and the way his playing tails off… but what do you think?


When this girl asker her mom to film her practicing for her dance team, she probably hoped some people would see it online and think she looked cool.


But she can't have expected to have been upstaged by her little brother whose background video bomb dancing sent it viral.

In the clip -- which has been seen 500,000 times -- the girl can me seen awkwardly dancing and singing along to 'Smack that' by Akon... but it's the young lad who steals the show.

Wearing pyjama bottoms he struts his stuff in the hallway behind her complete with arse shakes and some pretty impressive moves as she's oblivious to his actions.


A tiny Rottweiler puppy has been saved by animal welfare officers after falling down a crack in the ground in Texas.

Owners say they were shocked when they realised their month-old pup had disappeared from their house -- but soon heard it's squeals for help from outside.

Following the noise they discovered the puppy had fallen down a crack in the ground caused by severe droughts and could not get out.

Animal welfare officers were called and used pick axes, hammers and a shovel trying to free the whining dog. Which luckily they were able to do.


A video of a confused bird trying to walking the wrong way down an escalator has become a hit online -- with some suggesting it's a metaphor for life.


The video, thought to have been shot in Vancouver, Canada, shows a bird calmly walking the glass doors to a shopping centre among bustling shoppers.

But the bird-brain then attempts to get to a lower level by taking the wrong escalator and finds itself plodding along on the up escalator, never getting anywhere.

It's only when the feathered critter is spooked by shoppers coming towards it, that it turns around and tries to get out. Which it manages while trying to make it look like it meant to do that.


This video shows the touching moment a group of chimpanzees which had been used for laboratory testing saw daylight for the first time.


Having being raised in cages for the purpose of medical testing the chimps range in age from 20 to 30 years old and are understood to have been exposed to HIV and hepatitis.

In 1997 the pharmaceutical company conducting the research was sold and the chimps moved to Gut Aiderbichl Animal Sanctuary, near Salzburg in Austria.

Now a 14-year-bid to introduce the 38 primates to the outdoors has finally taken place and the chimpanzees certainly look happy with the outcome.

275x250.jpg A black and tan Coonhound called Harbour has earned a place in the Guinness World Records Book thanks to his humungous set of ears.

The 8-year-old dog has a monstrous pair of hearing flaps with his left ear measuring 31.1cm long and his right ear, even longer, at 34.3cm.

Owner Jennifer Wert says the colossal ears meant that as a puppy Harbor would struggle -- frequently tripping over then as he ran.

But they also made him a bit of a celeb in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado and now the world thanks to getting featured in the famous record book.


A video of a bully cat stuffing another pussy into a cardboard box and then trapping it by sitting on top of the box has become an online hit.

The 90 second clip starts off with a white kitty sitting and playing in an discarded open box as couple of other kitties entertain themselves.

But then a grey moggie strolls up behind the pen open and jumps up on the open flap, closing the box on top of the white cat -- trapping it in the box.

The grey cat then jumps up on the box and sits on top of the lid as the white bullied cat tries to escape… without much look.

lost penguin The penguin who was dubbed Happy Feet after accidentally swimming to New Zealand rather than Antarctica has finally headed home.

The confused emperor penguin -- who also needed surgery after eating sand thinking it was snow - is being transported by a fisheries survey vessel.

And before he went, hundreds of people turned out to bid farewell to the bird who became a worldwide sensation after he exploits were reported.

He's also been fitted with a tracking device so that bosses at Wellington Zoo where he was treated, can monitor his progress.


A video of a cat and dog staring at each other in a Western-style standoff for more than 90 seconds before going for each other has become an online hit.


And this has obviously been helped by the fact someone has already added the theme song of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (below).

In the video, the pooch and pussy glare at each other as the cay slyly edges towards the dog, testing its nerves.

But it's the little dog which makes the first move by noisily charging at the kitty… before bolting and getting chased off by the feline.

Kittens are cute, we all know that! But what's cuter than your average cute kitten? A sleepy kitten stretching cutely as it slowly wakes up, that's what.

And with that we give you Banzai Kitten, a cute overload in video form which is currently going viral online.

In the 54 second video - which has been watched more than 75,00 times - the kitty can be seen snoozing away before slowly waking up.

As he does, he reaches upwards with a huge stretch and lets out a big yawn. He then gives a deserved glare at the person filming him and goes back to sleep… what's not to like.


How do you wake up in the morning? Chances are it's something as boring as the alarm on your mobile phone or the sun coming in through the window.

Well not this boy, his dad recently got him out of bed by squirting a water pistol at him while humming the theme from Doom.

In the 41 second clip - shot to look like the classic first-person shooter - the father can be seen approaching the lads bedroom armed with a loaded Super Soaker.

He then bursts in the door and starts spraying the young lad with water saying "Wake up son, good morning" between humming the theme. Instantly becoming the world's coolest dad.


Hot on the prancing heels of "Thriller Cat" another kitty has become an online hit after showing off equally fancy footwork.

Just like the show off puss before him, this feline can be seen strutting along on its hind legs with an arched back.

In the 12-second clip, the white cat shoots across a room to hide behind a foot stool, before emerging like it's part of the Ministry of Silly Walks.

Initially it walks out with just a very hunched back, but when its owners laugh, it hops onto two legs to complete the wacky look.

275x250.jpg A confused cow had to be rescued from a tight squeeze by animal welfare officials… after somehow getting its head stuck in a ladder.

The blundering Belgian Blue bovine had been reported to the Scottish SPCA by members of the public who spotted the odd sight in a field in Troon, Ayrshire.

Inspectors promptly contacted the farmer who owned the cow and rounded up the rest of the herd before helping liberate the cow form the wooden jewellery and return the bewildered beast to the them unharmed.

The farmer says he has no idea how the ladder ended up in his field - let alone being worn as a neckless by the unfortunate cow - but it's thought it could have fallen off a passing van or lorry.


A video of a dog being rubbed with a blanket so that static causes its hair to stick out has become a hit online… and as soon as you click play you'll see why.

In the 80-second clip - which has been viewed over a million times - the owner of the hairy mutt can be seen rubbing the dog with a blanket.

This, combined with the dry air, has the effect of causing its white hair to stick out and make it look like a cute porcupine as it prances around apparently showing off.

As the static effect wears off, the dog even runs along the sofa to get a 'recharge' from the giggling owner.


Not only does Emmitt Thunderpaws have an awesome name for a dog, but the colossal  Great Dane also gives good viral video -- as this clip shows.

The video, which is currently surging on YouTube, sees him welcoming his owner back from 9 month military deployment in Afghanistan.

During the 90 second clip the owners of the huge dog can be heard discussing whether Emmitt will remember the returning soldier.

And  we think it's safe to say from the response that he does. He bounds up to the uniformed man and jumps up to look him in the face before enjoying a good pat and play.


275x250.jpg A group of penguins have been given sand-sculpture friends in a bid to console them after the departure of another group to whom they'd become attached.

Staff at Sea Life Weymouth say their 11 Humboldt penguins recently became friends with a group of Gentoo penguins with which they were temporarily homed.

But when the other penguins moved on to an aquarium in London the penguins became lonely, so bosses called in a artist to create penguin sculptures to keep them friends.

While staff say the nine sand-based Gentoo penguin created by Mark Anderson seem to be doing the trick and that the birds have stopped moping around, we think they'd have to be bird-brained to think they could be real…


Cats, is there anything they can't do? When they're not entertaining us by popping up on Question Time or interrupting weather forecasts they're trying to fix our cars.

At least that's what we think is happening in this video which is currently going viral online and has been viewed more than 110,000 times on YouTube.

In the 21 second clip a cute ginger kitten can be seen muscling in as a man tries to change the tyre on his car and wrestling with the jack.

And while the uploader seems to think the cat was just getting in the way, we like to think he was trying to help out.

275x250.jpg A abandoned baby wallaby is being hand reared by her keepers at a UK safari park and kept in a rucksack in lieu of his mothers pouch.

Staff at Longleat Safari Park say the young red-necked wallaby called Joseph was rescued from certain death after being found cold and alone in the park.

So now he's been adopted by three keepers who take it in turns to carry him around in a substitute pouch made from a specially adapted rucksack to keep him warm and safe.

The trio will have to keep up their role as adopted parents for up to 10 months until the youngster is fully weaned and ready to return to the rest of the 30-strong wallaby group… they grow up so fast.


Visitors to a US aquarium got a bit of a surprise the other day -- when a deer took an impromptu dip in the seal tank.

Staff at Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk were feeding the seals when they noticed an animal swimming around which didn't belong.

It was a small deer which had swim across a river to get to the aquarium and then hopped into the seal display -- luckily the seals were safely in the inside part of the display at the time.

A 30-minute rescue mission was launched and after attempts to net the deer failed, they placed a ramp in the water so the deer could get out himself, which he did.


We promise this is the best video of a Mariachi band serenading a beluga whale you will see all day. If not you can have your money back.

The two minute clip was filmed at the Mystic Marinelife Aquarium as the band 'Mariachi Connecticut' took time out from performing at a wedding there.

In it a beluga whale called Juno can be seen attentively watching the instrument-wielding trio as it swims in time to the music.

And while Eduardo Rocha, the band's guitarist, says he's not sure Juno could hear the music, he sure seems to be enjoying it from where we are sitting.

275x250.jpg An animal charity say they've been bombarded by people offering to give a new home to a kitten which looks like Hitler* -- after previously struggling to find anyone willing to take her in.

Staff at Wood Green animal shelter said people had originally shunned the kitten because of her uncanny resemblance to the Nazi dictator and she'd repeatedly been overlooked for adoption.

However, after the six-week-old kitten - dubbed Kitler but also known as Luminus - appeared in several national newspapers on Friday, they've received hundreds of offers.

*Obviously when we say 'kitten which looks like Hitler' we don't mean you could mistake the two in the street, but rather that it has slightly Hitler-esque markings.

275x250.jpg A baby ostrich which was abandoned by his mother and dumped in the rain is now being kept company by a soft toy surrogate mum and a radio.

Staff at Folly Farm in Pembrokeshire say this is the first first baby Ostrich to be cared for there, as in previous years rain has hampered incubation with excess moisture in the nests.

And while it was all going much better this year, it looked like it could take a turn for the worse when this 10 inch baby Ostrich left out in the rain by its mum.

However, carers have taken him in and after putting him at ease by placing a slightly taller toy in his enclosure, are now hand-rearing the bird which will eventually be somewhere between 6ft and 9ft tall. Good luck finding a toy that big.


A video of a sleepy baby sloth yawning has become an online hit and been viewed more than 900,000 times… by 900,000 people who probably proceeded to yawn themselves straight after.

The 19 second clip, which was uploaded to YouTube earlier this month starts off with an already adorable baby sloth slouched over the hand of a carer.

But then the cuteness level gets dialled up all the way to eleven when the tired little critter lets out a massive yawn before closing its eyes and going to sleep.

We know how you feel little guy, we know how you feel. 


A video of a baby hippo appearing to perform a series of underwater ballet moves in California, has become an online hit.


Little Adhama - whose name means "honour" or "glory" in Swahili - is said to regularly strut his stuff pulling pirouettes, backflips and tumbles in his enclosure at San Diego Zoo.

Now the six-month-old calf and his 26-year-old mother Funani have now become a web sensation after a video of their antics was uploaded to YouTube.

In the footage, the critter, who was born weighing around 100 pounds, looks almost as graceful as the the hippo from Fantasia, almost.

275x250.jpg Vegas, a German Shepherd trainee police dog has been left looking for a new home after officers realised she is not brave enough to cut it with the force.

The 19-month-old dog had been specially bred for police work and gone through part of her initial training course before it was recognised she's a big scaredycat.

It's said the pup was great at things like jumping through windows, ignoring gunshots and chasing suspects -- she refused to bite them when she caught up with them - which means she won't be able to work with police.

Northumbria Police are now appealing for people who might be able to offer her a home to come forwards and say she loves to play with her toys and would be a fun and loyal companion.


Here is a video of a young child saying the words 'fox' 'on' 'the' 'beach' - and that might not sound like much, but we defy you to press play and not laugh.

The 14 second clip of two-year-old Keira Roshuk has recently gone viral because well, it sounds like she's saying something completely different.

While we all know she's really saying "Fox on the Beach" all we can hear is "F**k the b***h" -- not exactly the sort of thing you expect a two-year-old to say.

And while we try to work out whether we should have included a bad language warning at the top of the article, why don't you check out so other kids saying  innocent phrases below.


A video of a young boy - and rock star of the future - enjoying a bout of heavy metal music has become an online hit.

In the two minute clip the little lad can be seen strutting his stuff, spinning around and head-banging to Pantera "F***ing Hostile".

Proving popular with other rock-lovers the video has already been viewed more than 250,000 times since it was uploaded earlier this week.

Comments so far include 'I hope if I have kids they are as cool as this one' 'Parenting: You're doing it right' and 'Currently the greatest video on the Internet'.

275x250.jpg Last week we told you about Ci the sheepdog who is scared of sheep. Today we've got someone showing him how it should be done. Meet Nancy the chihuahua-turned-sheepdog.

Tiny little Nancy weighs just 2.5lbs and is an unlikely sheepdog - but she's already proven her expertise in the field, by confidently herding sheep more than six times taller than her.

Nancy only discovered her sheep herding ability after being rescued and taken in by Battersea Dogs Home when she was found with no fur and suffering from mange.

Taken in by Ali Taylor, the pint-sized pooch started visiting farms and was fascinated by the way Border Collies would chase the sheep. Then one time she decided to join in and the rest is history internet gold.

275x250.jpg Cats are not normally know for their smiling sunny disposition… and Mr Pip is not different. In fact this moody moggie could be Britain’s grumpiest cat.

According to owner Rose Oughton, Mr Pip does not like noise, bad weather and especially hates football. Yes, this sour-face puss is constantly in a grump.

The irritable Persian Burmese is said to constantly act like he is is in a foul mood - even when partaking in his favourite activities of ‘starring at dogs’ and 'sitting in his favourite bush'.

Worried her beloved cat might have an underlying illness which was causing the stroppy behaviour, Rose even took Mr Pip to the vet, but they said he was just like that… he didn't look impressed with their diagnosis.

275x250.jpg A funny-looking Chinese-crested Chihuahau mix called Yoda now has the dubious honour of officially being the world's ugliest dog.

The 14-year old dog scooped the highly prestigious title at an annual contest held at Sonoma-Marin Fair after beating off competition from other ugly mutts.

Judges praised 1.8 pound Yoda for her wiry hair, protruding tongue, gangly legs and the scruffy fur between her toes and she was an audience favourite.

Owner, Terry Schumacher, from California said Yoda was found by her daughter, but she initially thought she was a rat. She aded that she doesn't think dogs and owners always look alike.

275x250.jpg An Antarctic Emperor penguin which took a wrong turn has ended up stranded on a New Zealand beach 2,000 miles from his intended destination of Antarctica.

It's thought the young lonely penguin got lost while swimming near Antarctica, made a wrong turn, and then proceeded to swim the mammoth journey to New Zealand.

Defying the odds, the 80cm tall bird - believed to be 10 months old - somehow ended up on Kapiti Coast where he was spotted by a local resident out walking her dog.

Experts say people should not disturb the critter and that dogs should be kept on leads as penguins can give vicious bites if they feel threatened… something they never covered that in Happy Feet.


When we saw the words 'breakdancing gorilla' we had a sneaky suspicion we'd be writing about it for Newslite… and thankfully this video does not disappoint.

The footage of Zola, an eight-year-old Western lowland gorilla, strutting his stuff at Calgary Zoo has become an online hit.

In the clip the groovy gorilla can be seen spinning around, showing some fancy footwork and generally dancing considerably better than we can.

Sure he wasn't really responding to the rhythm of the music and he's not technically breakdancing, but who cares... if this video doesn't make you smile there is something wrong with you.

275x250.jpg
A video of a playful dog wanting a game of fetch with a pair of twin babies has become a hit online -- and it's not hard to see why.

In the two minute clip Marley, an eight year old Australian Labradoodle, can be seen presenting a pair of six-month-old girls with a ball.

Initially he seems surprised that little Lilly and Sophia don't want to take the ball and throw it for him so he tries dropping it for them.

When that doesn't work, he tried sitting and waiting patiently and even placing the chewed directly in the hands of the tots. But don't worry, there is a happy ending.

275x250.jpgCops in Seattle were led on a literal wild goose chase when they were called on to give a police escort family of geese.

The Canada goose and her goslings had been spotted strolling busy highway by rush hour passers-by, who were worried for their safety and reported it to police.

As a result, three cars of Washington state troopers were dispatched to I-90, to guide the gaggle from the highway and close two lanes of traffic.

It took around 20 minutes for the officers to guide the Canadian geese to an appropriate highway exit and safety.

And police say the operation, dubbed "Operation get the little guys cleared" was a success… if the aim was to create a cute video, we agree.

275x250.jpg It's that time of year again, water-loving pooches have taken to the sea to compete in an annual surfing dog competition in California.

The Lowes Surf Dog competition sees dogs battle it out in three categories - small dogs, large dogs and tandem rides - to see who has the best surf skills,

Each of the 60 competitors is judged on confidence level, length of ride and overall surf ability and thousands of fans turned out to watch the event.

The winners received an all-expenses-paid pet vacation at the Imperial Beach Resort, which is not to be sniffed at… even if you're a dog and therefore inclined to sniff things.


You might think it's an innocent tennis ball, we thought it was an innocent tennis ball. But this kitten clearly knows different.

Because, if there wasn't something absolutely terrifying lurking within, why would he be treating it with such trepidation?

Complete with a wonderfully over the top soundtrack, the video 'Kitten vs A Scary Thing' has become a YouTube hit, and it's not hard to see why.

During the clip the tentative kitty can be seen repeatedly approaching the yellow tennis ball, before each time recoiling in horror. Maybe tennis is just more scary if you are a kitten.


The owner of a skateboarding dog who was previously threatened with an ASBO, has been fined £80 and told he could face legal action over his boarding pooch.

Bodhi the Lakeland Terrier is said to like noting more than riding his skateboard around Brighton and pulling tricks.

And his kerbside antics have proved a hit on YouTube and even gained him an appearance on Britain's Got Talent… though council bosses are less impressed.

Owner Jonathan Fell, 51 says he's been fined £80 by the authority after complaints were made, and told to keep Bodhi on a lead… not a problem Tony Hawks ever had.

We're not sure how to describe this video, depending on how you like your viral videos, it's either a dog bursting bubbles, or a baby laughing at a dog bursting bubbles.

Either way it's absolutely great and if you don't enjoy it we're afraid to tell you you're dead on the inside.

In the minute-log clip a little girl called Molly can be seen laughing hysterically a her pet dog Bennie jumps around popping bubble with his mouth.

And that's it. But it's better than it sounds… as the 1,000,000 views it has received since being uploaded to YouTube earlier this month prove.

275x250.jpg If there's one thing cuter than the world’s smallest stallion running around a field, it's the same diminutive horse running around with a giant ball.

Which is lucky, because as it happens that's exactly what this video shows. Funny that, isn't it?

Last time we met Little Einstein, the tiny pinto stallion had just been named the world’s smallest stallion after measuring 35cm tall.

Breeders at Tiz A Miniature Horse Farm in New Hampshire had initially been worried the pint-sized foal was too small to survive.

But luckily their concerns were unfounded and Einstein now loves running around and playing football with a goat and a dog, as you do.

275x250.jpg Despite his diminutive size, Tiny Tim the tortoise has become a big attraction at Whipsnade Zoo... and it's not hard to see why.

Just take a look at the Egyptian tortoise - who weighed just 6g when he hatched - chilling next to this grape.

Zoo bosses say he was part of a litter born to a group of tortoises seized by HM Customs and Excise last year, which were destined for the illegal pet trade

Right about now you may be wondering "Why is Tiny Tim pictured pushing his nose against a grape?" Well we don't know... and in our experience it's best not to question these things too much.


Another day, another cute baby video here on Newslite. Today it's the turn of Chevelle, the world's littlest hip hop fan.

At the start of the clip, Chevelle gazes around in a slightly dazed state, as though she's just woken up, and to be honest she doesn't appear too happy.

But her apparent grumpiness doesn't last too long, as soon as her dad puts on the Kid Cudi hip-hop tune Cleveland Is The Reason on, she sparks into life.

Breaking out the hip hop gangsta moves Chevelle waves her arms around as her  impressed father exclaims "That's my boo!," and "She's going to be a STAR!"

If there's a better baby dancer out there, we're yet to see them… and if you have got the video proof, we want that YouTube link.


Maybe they're discussing whether the nappy and sock look is going to be the next big fashion trend.

Or they could be planning how to get an ice cream out of the freezer… all we know is these twin babies look like they are having one great conversation.

A video of two 17-month old boys chattering away to each other, appearing to have an unintelligible conversation has become a hit online.

Their parents say Sam and Wren sometimes sound like they have a secret language of their own, but that even they are not sure what was being discussed.

If there are any baby translators out there we would love to know exactly what is being said… though we're pretty convinced it's something about the odd socks.

275x250.jpgA puppy which was dumped by a breeder when he realised she was deaf, has been found a new home and is now learning sign language.

Yes this story is just as cute as it sounds. Alice, an 8-week-old black and white springer spaniel, was taken to an animal rescue centre after she was abandoned in Ireland.

Staff at the centre which took her in instantly knew the puppy would need specialist training and that most people would not want a pup who could not hear commands.

But luckily a deaf couple, Marie Williams and Mark Morgan happend to be looking for a dog and decided Alice would be the perfect pet for them.

The pair have now started teaching the pup sign language and can use it to instruct her to sit down, sit up, come and roll over.

Passengers on a US flight were surprised to see a penguin calmly waddling down the aisle of their plane -- well it's better than snakes.

Pete the Penguin was flying from San Fransisco (where he'd appeared at a national science convention) back home to SeaWorld in San Diego.

Special dispensation had been arranges with cabin crew for the South American Magellan to stretch his legs on the 40 minute flight rather than be in cramped conditions.

As he strolled around the plane, his SeaWorld keepers gave a free lecture on penguins over the in-flight intercom… not that you could hear it over all the oohs and aahs.

Passengers say they were amazed to see the bird on the plane… because they'd always been told penguins can't fly.


When he returned home, this pet owner found an empty bag of cat treats on the floor and decided to quiz his pets about who was responsible.


And by the look of this video it didn't take much 'interrogating' of his two dogs to find the culprit. The man started off by holding the empty 'Party Mix' packet in front of Masey and asking "Did you do this?" to no response.

He then turned his attention to his other dog, a Labrador named Denver who refused to make eye contact as the questions were asked and hung his head in shame.

The ridiculously cute response seems to be the proof that Denver had stolen the food… and should never take up poker.

A video of a baby repeatedly switching between unbridled terror and joy as his mother blew her nose has become an online hit.

And as soon as you click play, we think you'll see why.

In the 59 second clip, five-and-a-half-month old Emerson clearly doesn't know what to make of the noise his mom makes as she blows her noes.

When she's in the middle of it, he looks like he is witnessing the most horrific thing in the world. When she finishes, he can't stop giggling.

The video has already been watched more than 400,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week… but we probably account for a fair few of those.


A video of a cat modelling new hairstyles by pushing his face through a cardboard box has become an online hit… well how could it not.


In the clip 'Various hairstyles and Maru' Maru, a Japanese cat, is seen walking up to a cardboard box and poking his face through a hole.

But what make this video particularly internet worthy is that Maru's owner has drawn a series of haircuts onto the side of the box. Wait, it's better than it sounds.

The video has already been watched more than 300,000 times since being uploaded to YouTube last week. May we put a request in for a kitty mow-hawk.

275x250.jpgAn animal charity is hoping to find a home for a pup which suffers from a rare condition meaning he can only eat when standing on his hind legs.

Ronnie, a seven-month-old Labrador rottweiler-cross suffers from megaoesophagus, meaning that he can’t swallow foods or liquids.

This means that whenever it's feeding time, he has to stand on his hind legs and allow gravity to take food and water into his stomach.

The incurable disease means the feeding process takes 20 minutes each time and that his food has to be made into a jelly so he can digest it

Dogs Trust Leeds are now hoping someone will come forward and offer Ronnie a home… and yes, he does come complete with the natty feeding station.


A video of a baby laughing hysterically as his father rips up a job rejection letter in front of him, has become an hit online.

The clip of ten-month-old Micah has already been viewed more than 2 million times since it was tweeted about by actress Alyssa Milano.

In the two minute long video, Micah's father can be seen ripping up a rejection letter for a professorship as his child squeals with delight.

With each tear of the paper, Micah laughs hysterically, until there is just a pile of shredded paper in front of him… not that he seems to care.



A US man has formed an unusual friendship with goose at his local park, after it started following him around whenever he was there.

Dominic Ehrler says Maria the goose now waits for him at the side of the road each morning and then dutifully follows him around Echo Park in Los Angeles.

Maria is also said to get over protective if Dominic gets too close to anyone and has even been know to chase off dogs which dare to come near him.

The besotted Toulouse goose will even fly along at the side of Dominic as he rides his scooter. Which is something you just have to see, click play, you know you want to.

275x250.jpgA police officer has escorted a group of ducklings to safety after coming across them on a busy road. And become an internet hero.

Glenn Eppler had been driving in Fort Myers when he encountered the unusual suspects - ten tiny ducklings - holding up traffic.

Footage from his dash-cam shows the officer jumping out of his vehicle and trying to guide the little feathered critters to safety.

But it wasn't as easy as he expected and the birds - which had somehow dodged traffic - were uncooperative.

Luckily a passer-by helped the officer to pick up the tiny ducklings and moved them to somewhere a little safer where they were reunited with their mother.

275x250.jpg Our favourite cross-eyed sooth-sayer opossum has started making her predictions about who will win Academy Awards… and it's good news for Natalie Portman.

Heidi the cross-eyed opossum, from the Leipzig Zoo in Germany, has become a hit in the US where she is appearing on the TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The confused-looking animal is being confronted by Oscar statuettes with the head of Academy Awards nominees affixed to the head and asked to touch the one she thinks will win.

After spending a considerable amount of time thinking about it, Heidi has so far predicted that Natalie Portman will win the Best Actress Oscar… though we are not sure that's the one she was looking at.

A cat burglar who stole 600 items has been outed as an actual cat, after a night-vision camera was used to capture footage of the feline.

Residents in San Francisco had initially wondered what was happening when clothes, teddy-bears and other small items started disappearing.

But it soon became apparent the crook was a kleptomaniac kitty called Dusty who kept returning home with other peoples belongings.

After setting up night-vision camera they recorded footage of him going out under the cover of night and dragging back his loot.

Over the past three years the cat is said to have stole 600 items from neighbours and is partial to women's bathing costumes… naughty kitty.

275x250.jpg Staff at a pub in Staffordshire say they don't mind that one of their regulars always has a long face -- because it's not like Basil could do anything about it.

The nine-year-old Welsh Cob stallion has become a regular at the Meynell Ingram Arms in Burton where he is allowed to walk right in and up to the bar.

Over the past few years he's even said to have started enjoying the occasional tipple of Marson's Pedigree which is always served to him in his own glass.

Manager Guy Wallis insists locals don't mind sharing the bar with the 14.2 hands pony… though there have been complaints he doesn't ever get a round in.

275x250.jpgZoo keepers in the US say they've been shocked to see a wild bald eagle repeatedly visit and make friends with one of their captive birds.

Bosses at Orange County Zoo say the bird has started spending every morning and evening perched nearby the enclosure of a female bald eagle.

They say the rare visitor, believed to be a male, can spend hours squawking with their 6-year-old who cannot be released due to an eye injury.

While many visitors insist his constant presence is a sign of true love, others claim it's simply because he's worked out there's an abundant food supply at the zoo.

In other words what they are trying to say it that he's a typical bloke.


275x250.jpg A Silverback gorilla which has started walking around on his hind legs like a human has become an internet star after video of him was uploaded to YouTube.

More than 300,000 people have now watched clips of 21-year-old Ambam as he strolls around his enclosure at a zoo in Kent like it's the most normal thing in the world.

Keepers at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park say while it is not unheard of, it's certainly rare for a gorilla to walk on two legs, especially for the long distances Ambam manages.

They added it's thought he does it to gain an advantage when it comes to feeding time… we like to think it's because he wants to be a web celebrity.

275x250.jpg Cash-strapped Japanese tourists who can't afford to visit Europe themselves, have started sending their cuddly toys there on holiday instead, it's been claimed.

Bosses at 'Barcelona Toy Travel' say they've been inundated with requests from Japan to take soft toys on sight-seeing tours of the Spanish city.

The firm charges £60 to show a teddybear around Barcelona on a six-day trip and supplies owners with a selection of photos showing their beloved bear in front of various monuments.

A postcard is also sent back to the owner, followed by the well-travelled soft toy… which won't stop going on about Gaudi architecture. Don't you just hate pretentious teddy bears.

A man has surprised his air stewardess girlfriend by booking onto a flight she was working... and using the intercom to publicly ask her to marry him.

Joao Vieira also had a video-camera there to record the moment he used the microphone to ask 29-year-old Vera Silva for her hand in marriage.

It all happened on what the Portuguese air stewardess assumed would be a routine flight from Lisbon to Barcelona - little did she know her bloke had been working with her colleagues to plan the stunt.

So after sneaking Vieira onto the flight, cabin crew gave him the intercom microphone to pop the question.

After hearing her say yes, passengers cheered… and then cheekily asked if there would be complimentary Champagne on the flight to celebrate.

275x250.jpg A brave/stupid penguin escaped from a pool at Münster Zoo in Germany and ended up waddling around the lion enclosure.

Three-month-old African Penguin Leona is said to have somehow strolled out of her ice-covered pool and onto visitors paths and an ice-covered moat.

From there she climbed a snow-capped bank and jumped onto some nearby ice… which just so happened to be in the middle of the the lion enclosure.

Luckily staff at the German zoo noticed the feathered intruder before the lions - who were sleeping - and lured her to safety by throwing a trail of herrings.

275x250.jpgAn abandoned baby orang-utan has made his way to new home -- by travelling as a first class passenger on cruise ferry.

11-month-old Silvestre was rejected by his mother at Santillana Zoo in Spain and as a result was being taken to Monkey World sanctuary in Dorset.

But because he had to be kept close to his keeper, special permission was given from the British authorities for him to travel on board a ferry.

As a result, Silvestre had his own four-bed cabin for the journeyand spent most of the time swinging from the ladders and bunks.

With that sort of behaviour he should fit in perfectly on a EasyCruise holiday.

A video of a salsa-dancing dog has become an online hit -- and how could it not, it's a salsa-dancing dog!

Since going online earlier this week the 34 second video has been viewed more than 300,000 times.

Wriggling against a glass door, the dog appears to be dancing the Mambo as salsa music by La Excelencia is played in the background.

The uploader of the video says the dancing dog "gets every door opened for him" by showing off his moves. And fans online have certainly been impressed.

However, some doubters claim he's not dancing… but more likely trying to get at some sausages he's being taunted with behind the glass door.

275x250.jpg A photographer who scored a surprise hit with a quirky calendar featuring dogs in yoga poses is at it again, this time with puppies and kittens.

Dan Borris creates the wacky images with the help of his yoga instructor wife Alejandra, who coaxes the animals into certain positions.

He then takes photos of each animal and uses Photoshop to combine them and make it appear as though the cats and dogs are in actual yoga poses.

The calendars have become a hit around the world with orders flooding in from Russia, Japan and Europe… and people in each country think they're being original with jokes about Downward facing dog.

A video showing a family of ducks being being blown around by a powerful gust of wind has become an online hit.

The clip, which has been viewed more than 2 million times on YouTube, shows a mother and nine ducklings waddling along at a racecourse in Toronto

But then, as they cross an open paved area, a gust of wind catches the ducklings and knocks the little ones off their feet.

As the wind hits again it sends them flyin all over the place and the mother begins to panic and runs around trying to make sure they are all okay.

At this point, if you listen carefully enough, you can probably hear the 'Awwws' of another YouTube user nearby watching the same clip.

275x250.jpgA live webcam showing penguins enjoying the recent snowfall at Edinburgh Zoo has become a surprise online hit.

Presumably destroying the productivity levels in offices across the country, hundreds of thousands are said to be logging on to see live footage.

Links to the 'Penguin Cam' page on the Edinburgh Zoo website were spread on site like Twitter and Facebook as office workers marvelled at the feathered critters.

And it's not hard to see why. After clicking this link we're surprised that any more articles have been posted to Newslite.

Ironically, the snow which send so many fans to Penguin Cam, also caused the zoo to be closed to the public.
