cute: March 2012 Archives
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.
