Meet Atchoum, the 9-month-old creepy cat from Quebec who is winning over the Internet with his long hair and strange gaze.

His signature long hair is actually the result of a hormonal disorder called hypertrichosis, which makes him look more like a cute little werewolf or a wizard than a cat.

But that just adds to his allure.

Watch out Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, there’s a new celebrity feline in town.

Here are some more photos of Atchoum and you can follow him on both Facebook and Instagram:

It's not just humans and swans that partner up for life. Other animals also find their soul-mates out in the wild. For the most part I think this is pretty adorable. But, in the case of some it can also be pretty gross (I'm looking at you black vultures).

A thick pane of glass is all that stands between this female lion and lunch.

Zari, a 7-year-old African lioness at the El Paso Zoo, was captured on video "playing' with this kid back in December.

She is either really fascinated by children, or she really wants to eat them.

The zoo says the animals are just curious, and that the glass is definitely strong enough to protect anyone from harm, so there isn't anything to worry about here.

"When some of our lions see little kids, it seems like it calls attention to them and they want to check them out," a zoo spokesperson told TODAY.com. "She was just trying to play, and the baby was so close. The baby is safe behind a really thick window, which is made so that visitors can see the animals up close."

But lion expert Craig Packer told The Daily Mail that the beasts like to play with babies before eating them.

"Predators generally treat calves/fawns/babies differently from adults because they are such easy prey; there's no real chance of escape, so what's the hurry?" he said.

Yup, she just wants to check him out… with her teeth.

It's "Hungry Hungry Hippos" IRL.

South African videographer/photographer Craig Clive Jackson recently caught this scary moment on camera during a safari on the Chobe River in Botswana.

A hippo charges after the speedboat and then shoots out of the water directly behind it.

"Throughout most of the year the hippos ignore the boat and we can photograph them using our long lenses," said Toby Jermyn, of Pangolin Photo Safaris. "During breeding season however the 'bulls' (males) have huge amount of testosterone coursing through their veins and they become very aggressive."

These large beasts can move a lot faster than you might think.

It's moving day for this little hermit crab.

New year, new home!

British photographer Steve Guntrip recently caught the magical moment on camera.

Watch as his pet Pagurus Prideaux slips out of his old shell and into a brand new one.

Warning: there's lots of crab nudity in this video, so WARNING if that sort of thing bothers you.
