He may not be a jokester like his animated brethren, but this little guy takes a good-natured ribbing as well as anyone in the Animal Kingdom.

Primrose the baby donkey was born so prematurely that she requires bright pink casts to support her body weight until she's grown a bit more.

Awww.

Chris and Sandra sent TDW a charming email -- "Only In Africa!" -- complete with pic, about their friends' encounter with a real-life Pumbaa:

They had been away at a game park and on the first evening, while sitting in front of the fire in the bar, in walked a fully grown warthog. He walked over to the bar and without a word the bar man handed him a pillow. He took the pillow in his mouth, dropped it next to the fire and promptly lay down with his head on the pillow and went to sleep where, apparently he spends the cold nights. In the morning he's off into the bush again!  My friend says that if the barman isn't there, he'll just grab a pillow off one of the couches!

Hard to say whether it's real, but here's hoping.

[thanks, chris & sandra!]

The Toledo Zoo's nine-month-old elephant, Lucas, certainly seems to like his brand new sand stall. The zoo plans to give Lucas even more enrichment activities when a new elephant exhibit opens in May.
