Artistic Animal Inspired Japanese Manholes

Hi friends! Today we came across some amazing animal inspired art that we of course, had to share with all of you. "Japan is a country full of amazing art. Some of it is housed within museums and galleries while others are right underneath our feet. I'm talking, of course, about Japan's peculiar obsession with manhole covers. Just about anywhere in the country you can find stylized manhole covers, each more beautiful and intricate than the next." Via thisiscollossal.com

Many of these beautiful works of art are inspired or based on animals! Now you've got our attention. We love seeing how artists incorporate natural elements into their work, especially the beauty and diversity of animals. "According to the Japan Society of Manhole Covers (yes, that's a thing) today there are almost 6000 artistic manhole covers throughout Japan. And according to their latest findings, the largest single category are trees, followed by landscapes, floral designs and birds." via thisiscollossal.com

Pawfessional Doggos Gettin' The Love They Deserve

When celebrating heroes in stories, rarely do we think about the animals involved. In reality, animals, and specifically dogs, do so much work for the world. From police dogs to seizure alert dogs and other pawfect service dogs, every single day, dogs are saving lives. So, we thought that it was only right to give these pawfessional doggos who are hard at work the love that they deserve. 

If we could, each of these amazing dogs would get a medal from us for the hard work that they do. We don't know how the world would function without them. They are truly too pawsitive and pawfect for this world. The very least we can do is give them love (and treats) and appreciate them (and pet them all day long).

Twitter Thread: The Incredible Story Of Simon, The HMS Amethyst Ship Cat

When we think about history and war, rarely do we think about the animals. Deservedly, we talk about the soldiers and the fallen, the events that occurred, but sometimes, the animals have stories of their own. Simon, the HMS Amethyst ship cat, has lived one of the most amazing cat lives and has one of the most incredible stories. Thank you to @garius for putting this story together and sharing it with the world. We hope many more people read it and learn about Simon.

Simon is not the only ship cat out there either, there apparently have been many ship cats adorably sleeping in tiny hammocks throughout history. And other cats throughout history have been captured destroying all of our things. And though, no, none of their stories are quite as amazing as Simon's, we love them all.

Let's talk about Simon. Ship's cat for HMS Amethyst. Survivor of the 1949 Yangtse Incident and the only cat ever to be awarded the Dickin Medal, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross. 2:47 PM Jul 16, 2021 - Twitter Web App'

Twitter Thread: The Truth About Fossils In The Appalachian Mountains

When it comes to nature, there are so many things left undiscovered. Every other week, we hear about a new species being found, an old extinct animal coming back into the world. We read interesting stories about nature all the time, like when a 392 year old shark was discovered or when a study was done that showed that sometimes octopus punch fish for no reason other than spite. 

There are always more facts to learn about the animal world. And today, you're about to learn about one of nature's mysteries. Thanks to @AlexPetrovnia, we had taken the time to thoroughly look into this mystery, you're about to learn about the truth behind why we don't find fossils in the Appalachian mountains.

The truth is, we do, they're just not the kind of fossils you might think of-there are no mammals, no dinosaurs, no reptiles. There's something else entirely. 4:33 PM Jul 15, 2021 Twitter for iPhone 36.7K Retweets 8,172 Quote Tweets 181.8K Likes'

Tumblr Thread: The 4 Foot Tall Red-Bearded Vulture

Guys, get ready to be scared and impressed all at the same time. We're about to give some love to yet another insanely underappreciated animal, but we're going to do it from the safety of our homes, because this bloody bird is a little terrifying. Meet the 4 foot tall red-bearded vulture. 

We know that birds are clawsome at this point, don't even lie. Parrots can impersonate different accents and be jerks to other pets. Crows sometimes collect gifts and bring them to people. And the red-bearded vulture? Well, the red-bearded vulture eats a diet of bones and covers itself in blood for a reason which, even after we read, we can't really comprehend. It's a cool bird though, and we always love learning more about the animal kingdom, even when it scares us a bit.

Twitter Thread: Finland Attempts To Save Reindeer Using Reflective Paint

As animal lovers, we know that people will go to incredible lengths to help an animal in need, whether it's by adopting stray sick animals who can't take care of themselves or rescuing sick 'ugly' fish who've been abused by their previous owners. And when it comes to animal preservation, people will do the same, helping animals procreate, rescuing and releasing animals back into the wild, or - as in this case - painting reindeer antlers with reflective paint to attempt to stop them from being hit by cars.

It is really unfortunate that this experiment did not work, but we're glad to see people trying to save animal populations. And having this thread go viral on twitter definitely helps bring more attention to the issue at hand, so hopefully, other solutions will be attempted and succeed.

Tumblr Thread: Tug Of War Between Lioness And 3 Professional Wrestlers

This is one video that you do not get to see every day, animal lovers. A tug of war enrichment game between a lioness and three professional wrestlers. Yup, you read that right. And guess who the winner is.

It's amazing, how easily we forget just how strong and dangerous these adorable fluffy big cats are. We look at pictures of wild animals and sometimes wish that they would interact with us puny humans - looking at insane videos of people who are part of a lion's pride, we feel jealousy, but then seeing a tumblr thread like this reminds us of just how dangerous they are. 

Although we don't love that this animal is in captivity in the first place, we are glad that the people working at the San Antonio Zoo are trying to give her such enrichment programs and make her day a little more fun.

Heroic Dog Saves Owner From Rattlesnake Bite And Survives

Man's best friend just became man's hero! Alex Loredo, owner of 7 year old Marley, can thank his furry four legged friend for literally saving his life. He had just gone outside to check his dryer, located behind his house, and all of a sudden he heard the snake, loud, and approaching. Marley, being the brave and heroic pooch that he is, swooped in to save the day.

Before he could even turn, Marley had run out the door, pushed him out of the way, and gotten in between the snake and and his owner, Alex Loredo. NBC Sandiego reports: "Marley, Loredo's 7-year-old Labrador, was then attacked by the snake. 'My heart just dropped,' said Loredo. The snake slithered away, and Loredo and his mom rushed Marley to the vet. 'It was complete panic,' Loredo described. 'My heart was racing and I didn't know what was going to happen next. To be completely honest, I thought he was just going to die in the car.' At the vet, the lab was administered a few doses of antivenin and admitted into the pet hospital for two days. 'That's the longest I've ever been away from him, so it was a really sad experience for me,' Loredo said. It's been two weeks since the bite and Marley has recovered. By now, Loredo says, even his playful spirit is back. The young friendly pup can now add hero to the long list of qualities Loredo says make him his best friend." We wish Marley a speedy recovery! He truly is a hero!
