Giant Panda Cub Born At The Smithsonian’s National Zoo

A huge congrats to the attentive and caring mother, Mei Xiang! 

According to the Smithsonian National Zoo, the moment the cub was born on August 21st, Mei Xiang picked up the newborn cub and immediately began to cradle and care for it. Just like any loving and devoted mother would. 

Animal care staff heard the cub vocalize and were able to catch a glimpse of the newborn. As of now, the team is monitoring Mei Xiang and her cub via the Zoo's panda cams. From what the team has observed so far, the panda cub appears to be strong and healthy. 

Check out some of the Smithsonian's panda cam footage below!

Steve Irwin's Daughter Is Following His Foot Steps And Tweets From The Australian Zoo

Steve Irwin was undoubtedly one of the greatest conservationists. From his daring stunts to his incredible tv shows, we have all admired Steve for the kind of person he was. Ever since the start of his Tv Show, The Crocodile Hunter, from time to time we got to see his adorable little daughter, Bindi Irwin. After the tragic demise of her father, Bindi decided to invest all her time into doing what her father did best. Besides, the love and passion for wildlife animals runs in her family. To this day, Bindi still lives and works at the Zoo in Australia. The Irwin family built this Zoo back in the 1970's and they have been running it since. Now, with the help of her mother and brother, Bindi takes care of the Zoo and does everything within her reach to make sure that her Father's great legacy always remains. We have compiled some of her tweets with adventures from the zoo.

This Guy is Putting Kazakhstan on The Map - For the Wrong Reasons

Let's face it, the average person cannot place Kazakhstan on a map, even if you paid them. But apparently the hijinks that Russians are so famous for all over the internet, also extend to the former USSR's territories turned independent nation-states. This guy took being drunk at the zoo to a whole new level. Now I am sure most of us have at least dreamt about riding a wild safari animal. This guy clearly had a little too much liquid courage in him when he pulled this stunt off. The culprit wasn't caught, but police are searching for him with the intent to press charges. Check out all the juicy details from the stunt, find out how special this particular zoo is, and decide if you might have found your next vacation spot. The animals would sure appreciate it, but I would avoid trying to ride them..

Oh Internet, how we loathe you sometimes.

Millions were disappointed after gullibly falling for an fake story indicating that "Harambe McHarambeface" won the naming contest for a baby gorilla at a Chinese zoo.

It all started when the crap-tacular Daily Mirror--who never checks the legitimacy of their sources--decided to pick up the story. The "source" was the fictitional "Boston Leader" news website, and the internet ran with it from there:






The truth quickly came out and hearts were broken everywhere...





...and though we might not have a Harambe McHarambeface YET, you can still show your support and buy your "McHarambeface" t-shirt here:

Harambe, the magical ape who touched our fuzzy hearts now has a petition to name the Cincinnati Bengals after him. I can't think of a better way to kick Tom Brady's ass than by a band of gorillas.



There is already a petition to rename Humboldt Park after him, so we'll see if Cincinnati can get their sh*t together and honor this fine creature of nature.

Bristol gorilla flips off photographer.

Residents at the Bristol Zoo can get a little touchy about their privacy.

One local man found that out the hard way when he visited the attraction and began snapping photos of a gorilla minding its own business.

Bob Pitchford, 67, was on a visit to the city's zoo last week when he spotted the large ape chewing on some grass. He took his camera out to take a photo but when the the mammal caught sight of Mr Pritchard he swiftly made the rude gesture.



The gorilla obviously didn't take too kindly to the interruption in its regular grass chewing time and showed his displeasure apparently in the only way it knew how — by flicking the photographer off.

The unnamed flipper of the bird must not have made his point too clear, however, because Pitchford said he didn't even realize he had received the offense until he came home and reviewed the pictures.

'When I saw the pictures, I just thought "you little devil",' he added. 'He really does look a bit cheese off. 'I quite regularly photograph the animals at Bristol, but I've never seen anything like this. 'Gorillas are really good at expressing their feelings. I was just really lucky to capture this.'



This isn't the first documented time we've seen such fierce expression from apes, who also can be well versed in physical communication.





Is this a terrifying image of things to come?
