Strawberry Squid Looks Marvelously Bedazzled

The images below were taken the ultra-talented underwater photographer Paul Caiger.

Known as the Strawberry Squid, this is one bejeweled beauty! Its body looks as if there are jewels covering it, therefore it is also known as the reverse jewel squid. Sampled from the ocean twilight zone, they explain that this mysterious ocean dweller can be found between "the sunlit surface layer and extending down to about 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) deep." 

"The strawberry squid is a source of food for many of the large apex predators–such as sperm whales and Risso's dolphins–that dive down into the twilight zone to feed. "

Paul Caigar's Strawberry Squid image won the most-liked Instagram photo and crowned top "Instastar" from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's best of 2019.

The right answer... either! Or preferably, both. 

However, we understand that people may prefer one gender over the other. And AnimalWised is here to explain the difference in adopting a female feline versus a male. They dive into the different "characteristics that differentiate male and female cats and if this has an effect on suiting your family and lifestyle, as well as ensuring you can give them the care they need."

And just remember, if you are looking to adopt, don't shop! Check out our weekly adopted faces for further inspiration!

Instagram Cats: Funniest, Cutest And All-Around Best Of The Week (Videos)

Chug, chug, chug! The Sunday Train of cat goodness has arrived! 

Every Sunday, we gather up the best cat videos on Instagram and narrow it down to the top 5! What qualifies a video to be in the top five? Well, it's gotta hit some high marks. One mark is obviously kitty cuteness (but let's be honest, all cat videos hit that mark), so the next would be funny/unexpected. And the final, and most important mark, is if the video leaves us smiling at the end of it. And all these videos definitely left us smiling. 

We hope it does the same for you. Happy Sunday!

Photos Show That People Were Riding Zebras In The Late 19th And Early 20th Centuries

A new photo archive by Vintag.es shows that some of the European colonizers penetrating Africa in the 19th and early 20th centuries were riding wild zebras as an alternative to horses. 

The reason behind it is the zebra's resistance to diseases carried by tsetse flies which made their domestication more attractive.  

However, as many European colonizers learned in the early 20th century, despite their similarity to horses, zebras are just a bit too wild to completely tame. 

Unlike horses, which naturally roam around munching on grass, zebras spend their lives cagily watching, evading and fighting savannah predators such as lions, cheetahs and crocodiles. Natural selection has bred zebras to be nervous, flighty and brutally aggressive if cornered. 

But taming individual zebras to perform horse-like duties has occasionally been successful. Lord Walter Rothschild, for instance, trained a team of zebras to pull a carriage, which he drove past Buckingham Palace to demonstrate their supposedly pliable nature.

Meet Admiral Galacticat, the "Robin Hood" of laundry! Stealing from the people and bringing his loot to his owner. OK, maybe not exactly like Robin Hood but there is a sneaky, robbery-vibe to this hilarious story! 

Posted and shared by Admiral Galacticat's owner, Heather Bardi, Bardi announced on their neighborhood's marketplace that she discovered numerous (and we mean numerous) amounts of laundry showing up on her front porch. Initially, she had no idea where these clothing items were coming from...until she checked her security camera.
