The panda team at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. was excited to greet their newest baby panda on the evening of August 22. They were surprised to see that a second cub was born around 10 P.M. that night. It's rare for giant pandas to have twins, in fact this is only the third time that a pair of panda cubs have been born in the United States. 

At the moment the zoo is working to alternate individual time with the panda mother for each cub to make sure she can devote enough attention to each of them. So far Mei Xiang has been adjusting to motherhood well, you can see her immediately picking up and cleaning her second cub in the video below.

There's also a precedence for trained animals in the Russian special forces. At least, according to the historically sound documentary video game Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2.

A passing birdwatcher was walking in the Frampton Marshes in Lincolnshire, England when he noticed a herd of cows gathered around a puddle. When he stopped to see what the fuss was about he found this 5-day-old baby seal. 


The seal pup was found all alone without it's mother. The only guess to how it got in the middle of a cow field is a nearby creek. 


Fortunately the orphaned seal was rescued with the help of local seal sanctuary. This baby has a lot of weight to gain to be back in good shape but she is expected to recover and be rehabilitated into the wild.

This adorable little guy wandered into the midst of a cow family who started to care for him as one of their own.  The farmers who owned the cows named him Johann.

The cows lick him clean and let him snuggle with them just like they would a baby of their own species.

When media caught on to this wild pig's foster situation the attention got to be too much for him and he relocated with a new group of cows in a different meadow nearby. Amazingly, his new foster family accepted him as well and now he happily forages for bugs and acorns near his new grass-eating moms.
