Extremely Rare Never-Before-Seen Yellow Penguin Captured By Photographer

Rare animals are... well, rare to come by. And this golden penguin is no exception! One wildlife photographer, Yves Adams, has won nature's lottery by being the first to spot and capture a never-before-seen yellow penguin. The penguin is a King penguin, potentially the very first of its kind. 

Yves Adams believes that the yellow penguin spotted on an island in South Georgia is leucistic. Leucism is a condition that results in the partial loss of pigmentation. Whereas albinism is the absence of melanin, leucism is only partial, which can make the animal have white or patchy colored skin, feathers, or hair. 

In an interview with the Independent, Yves Adams had this to say about the rare and unique moment he first spotted the yellow penguin, "I'd never seen or heard of a yellow penguin before. There were 120,000 birds on that beach, and this was the only yellow one there. They all looked normal except for this one. It really was something else. It was an incredibly unique experience. One of the birds looked really strange, and when I looked closer it was yellow. We all went crazy when we realized. We dropped all the safety equipment and grabbed our cameras."

Adams continued, "We were so lucky the bird landed right where we were. Our view wasn't blocked by a sea of massive animals. Normally it's almost impossible to move on this beach because of them all. It was heaven that he landed by us. If it had been 50 metres away, we wouldn't have been able to get this show of a lifetime."

This isn't the first time we've seen rare golden animals out in the wild, but it is the very first golden penguin!

This baby skunk has the cutest little stomps and it's one of the cutest things we've seen in a hot minute! This stomp first begins when the baby skunk learns to stomp his hands, and soon enough, he begins to do handstands as he stomps his back feet!

If that isn't the most precious thing we've heard or seen today, then you must live a really great life with cuteness around you! This little fella was rescued and cared for by the amazing MoonShine Wildlife Rehab, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to "rehabilitating sick, injured or abandoned wildlife and releasing them back into their appropriate habitat."

Capybaras Covered In Moss Take Over Twitter (Viral Tweets)

A new capybara has just dropped! Well, sort of. They're just regular adorable capybaras covered in moss, but... twitter doesn't know that. And twitter has fallen for the joke - in mass numbers. 

A tweet with a video of capybaras covered in moss went viral, with someone going as far as to give these cool-looking capybaras a whole new name, and twitter is so in love with capybaras and how awesome and friendly they are, that they instantly started sharing this "new" capybara species. In reality though, them being regular capybaras doesn't make them any less cool. But... it sure is amusing to see twitter users fall for this epic capybara prank.

Wholesome Cozy Doggos Snuggling Under Blankets

Have you ever been overtaken by the feeling of just wanting to crawl under your blankets and stay there for a while? Cozying up under them in the morning, not wanting to get up for work? We know you have. It's a universal feeling that everyone understands. 

That feeling becomes even more intense though when you have an animal snuggled up with you. Nothing is more difficult than getting up from under your blankets when your dog - who's technically not supposed to even be on your bed - jumps up to cuddle you in the morning. But, at least you can be assured, when you are at work, that your pupper is getting the snuggles that you want so desperately. At least one of you should.

We hope you enjoy these warm and snuggly doggos from r/TuckedInPuppies as much as we do and that you have an amazing weekend!

Hot Cat Memes Just In Time For Caturday

It's a beautiful day to enjoy some fresh cat memes in honor of our day of the week... Caturday! Happy Caturday to all our fellow cat lovers! We are so blessed that you decided to spend your Caturday here with us. When it comes to Caturday, we here at 'I Can Has Cheezburger' have a weekly tradition that we feel really adds to the day. 

First, we devour the fresh cat memes below. Then, we are ravenous for more so we feast upon any and all cat memes we can get our hands-on. Afterward, we like to find a spot in the house where the sun rays hit and proceed to nap directly in that light. This part can take roughly up to 18 hours. Lastly, we end the day by terrorizing our family members with an abundance of energy at 3 am and attack everyone's feet while they try to sleep. It's not easy but someone's gotta do it. 

If you can't get enough of original cat memes, be sure to check us out on Instagram where we feature original cat memes daily!

Now, this is a story of a man who loved his dog so much, he left 5$ million for her in his will, and you know what? We're totally okay with that. Lulu's owner was a successful businessman who traveled a lot, and during his travels, he would leave his dog with Martha, who became Lulu's new caretaker. 

It is unclear what will happen with the money after Lulu passes, but until then, she will be the richest, most pampered 8-year-old dog in the world, and that makes us quite happy. We wish her and her caretaker a long and happy life together, and we hope the two treat themselves to the things that they want with this money.  

Can't get enough of ICanHasCheezburger? Then you're in luck because we're now on Instagram!
