Wholesome Animal Stories And Incredible Pictures

Animals are incredible and will never not be incredible. Seriously, each and every animal is so unique and interesting in its own way, it's absolutely insane that we all share this Earth together yet are each so different. 

The world would be a much darker place if we didn't have animals in it to help light it up and bring us joy. Not only do they bring us joy but they completely fascinate us. We will never fully understand any animal and why they do all the things they do. Regardless, we will forever admire and worship them all. Because each and every one of them are incredible in their own way. 

Here are just a few incredible photos of a few animals:

World's Oldest Known Wild Bird Gives Birth At 70

A Laysan albatross named Wisdom - who is the oldest known wild bird - not only turned a whopping 70 years old this year but also reared a new chick. This chick is at the very least her 40th one, and that is a feat which stretches far and wide the knowledge humans have of how birds live. 

Wisdom, according to Gulf Doday, was banded in 1956 and is the oldest known wild bird in history. She may even be older than 70, being that her age was estimated to be 5 years at the time - earliest age an albatross reaches maturity. "Last month her new chick hatched on the Midway Atoll – a tiny scrap of land, 1,300 miles northwest of Hawaii in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean."

She has been raising her little chicks with her current mate, named Akeakamai, since about 2010, according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Albatrosses are known as birds who mate for life, but considering Wisdom's amazing age, she has had a couple mates over the years, having outlived her previous companions. 

Until early in the 21st century, it was thought that Laysan albatrosses lived around 40 years, but "Wisdom has rewritten the natural history books." "We don't know exactly how many chicks she's raised, but certainly at least 35 based on what we know about her recent years performance," said US Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Beth Flint.

We could watch animals bouncing on trampolines forever. In fact, we now solely believe that trampolines are no longer for people but for animals' enjoyment. It's certainly far more entertaining to watch an animal discovering a trampoline. 

SaveAFox Rescue is a domestic fox sanctuary, and this sanctuary looks like a fox's dream! There are so many gorgeous foxes around and the sanctuary provides them with cool fun toys such as this trampoline! 

All we can say after watching this adorable video is that everyone ought to watch out -- one of the foxes has just learned how to land a double backflip!

Heartwarming Recovery Story Of Dog That Broke Its Leg From Overexcitement

Accidents happen with all children sometimes, it's inevitable. That includes our furry animal children too. And Sammy... Sammy had it particularly hard with his accident. He was just jumping around and having fun after stealing some firewood and zooming, and trying to get the firewood back from his owner, punmom... big snap, and his leg was broken

Of course, his owners rushed him to the doctor, and he got patched up fast. But then, complications happened, as they do - once, twice, three times. This poor dog has gone through so much, but he came out the other side with a minor limp and a big smile. And we're just thankful that his owners did everything that they did to make him feel better

viral thread about a dog who broke his leg thumbnail includes a picture of a dog lying on his side with a broken leg '"This is Samuel the night he broke his leg. He stole some firewood and zoomied a bit, followed by a hop in the air to grab the firewood back after taken away. Big snap and big cries. I held his leg while Doc wrapped and splinted his leg. I could feel and hear the bones scrape together as he was wrapping it." - punmom'

Twitter User's Dog Gets 'Certificate Of Bravery' At The Vet's

Going to the vet is never easy for anyone involved. The face of your dog who thinks you're going on a walk when you start approaching your vet's clinic falling is a painful sight to most owners. But sometimes, it's necessary. And when our good boys and girls get through the treatment they need, you want nothing more than to tell them how good they did and spoil them silly. And this twitter user's dog got exactly what it deserved: a certificate of bravery. 

Honestly, we think more vets should give out stuff like this. I mean... even though we know our dogs can't read that and don't really understand it, it definitely makes us as owners feel better - both because we know our pupper earned it and because... well, we feel like we kinda earned it too. Going to the vet is stressful on us too lol.

Meet Finn, the golden retriever and 1000% good boy! Finn had gotten received neutered and had to wear a cone for up to two weeks, in the hopes of cheering him up -- his mom, Jenn Frates, decided to decorate his cone daily in fun new themes. 

And not only did they cheer Finn up, but they also cheered us up too. Frates told The Dodo, "I thought it would be a fun way to get through the long two weeks of him having to wear an ugly cone. I'm trying to stock his first-year puppy book with lots of funny memories. I also just love art/being crafty in any form." 

Frates continued, "We do a lot of photoshoots so he knows when I have him sit in the backyard that he has to wait and if he does … lots of treats are coming." And what pup wouldn't be excited about a treat? We absolutely adored scrolling through Finn's photoshoot and we hope you do too!

We can understand this raccoon on a deep level, there is a pile of grapes in front of you and you want them all, but there's someone asking for a grape. So, you kindly leave them one. But if they reach for that last grape that's currently in your hands, it's a bit rude.

Mr. Raccoon, we're with you on this one. He doesn't even seem to mind giving the human a grape, but it's the lack of manners the human has that the raccoon can't abide.

Gotta love those trash pandas! We certainly can never get enough, we'll go hunting in trash cans to find more hilarious trash panda memes if we have to!
