This pink hippo's straight up the missing character off 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted.' Who would voice that beaut that's highly susceptible to sunburns, and at a disadvantage in the great big bad old predator-filled wild though?

Caters News Agency reports that this brilliant fairytale creature was spotted washing down in Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve by a couple french tourists.

"I was driving along when I see this deer struggling to survive. I felt obligated to help her, so I pulled over, trekked through the woods, and crawled out onto the ice. I used a rope to pull her out. I am so glad she is safe. Now we need to find her mom.

**pets deer**

I will call her Miss Ice River. She must be so cold. I am so happy that she survived. Farewell." 

Disney created these posters to promote their new animated movie 'Zootopia'. The movie is set in a world where animals think they're people, people don't exist and apparently animal based puns are just a part of the language. These delightfully punny movie posters will remind you of some of this year's most popular films.

Animal of The Day: Boston Transit Police Remind People Not to Take up Train Seats With Rabbits

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has a stern message for train passengers:

Silly rabbit—seats are for passengers!

The transit authority tweeted out a photo of a rabbit chilling on a train seat while its carrier was clearly seen underneath the seat.

But have we stopped to think about how the rabbit feels? It was just trying to get back home from a hard day's work like the rest of us.

Clear case of bunny discrimination.

Science of The Day: Coyotes and Wolves Are Mating to Create The 'Coywolf'

There a new species emerging right before scientist's eyes. And this doesn't happen very often.

Because of a lack of other wolves to mate with, scientists believe they are mating with coyotes and dogs to create an entirely new species: the coywolf.

The number of coywolf has grown into the millions in northeastern North America during the last century.

According to The Economist:

The mixing of genes that has created the coywolf has been more rapid, pervasive and transformational than many once thought. Javier Monzón, who worked until recently at Stony Brook University in New York state (he is now at Pepperdine University, in California) studied the genetic make-up of 437 of the animals, in ten north-eastern states plus Ontario. He worked out that, though coyote DNA dominates, a tenth of the average coywolf's genetic material is dog and a quarter is wolf.

The DNA from both wolves and dogs (the latter mostly large breeds, like Doberman Pinschers and German Shepherds), brings big advantages, says Dr Kays. At 25kg or more, many coywolves have twice the heft of purebred coyotes. With larger jaws, more muscle and faster legs, individual coywolves can take down small deer. A pack of them can even kill a moose.

Basically the combination of wolf, coyote and dog DNA has created super fast killing machines.

Hold your children close, America.

Every Montana resident deserves a quality education—even the bears!

A very large black bear broke in to Bozeman High School in Montana early Wednesday morning. The bear was clearly looking to better itself with an education, but police and school officials weren't having it.

After running around the halls for a bit, the bear was chased off by police. No students or staff were injured in the incident.

But students and alumni were pretty stoked.
