Love can transform all. Sometimes, we can forget that, and then we see something miraculous and it opens our eyes to the truth once more.

The truth being, that love is powerful. In a breathtaking video (that currently has over 6million views), taken by TikTok user Lacey Scott, we are introduced to an old fish on the verge of dying. Lacey Scott took in this old fish, named him Monstro, and gave him proper care. 

What happened next is so magical and beautiful, you'd have to see it to believe it. Trust it, it's worth every second. 

Thank you for your loving heart, Lacey Scott.

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.

Whoever said that hippos can't be graceful? Seems like Disney had it right in Disney's Fantasia! Those hippos can absolutely move with the grace of a ballerina! 

Turns out, hippos can do whale jumps too! Watch Hippo Fiona go crazy in their outdoor pool and celebrate with some joyful jumps. 

It totally makes sense now that whales are the closest living relative to hippos. You'll see.

In Hai Phong, Vietnam, there is a cat named Cho. Le Quoc Phong, the owner of Cho, which translates to 'Dog,' told Buzzfeed News, "It was really hot the day I adopted Dog and he was breathing like a dog, so that's how he got his name."

 It's no wonder that he soon became a celebrity in the marketplace, in which he works! Dog was 3-years-old when these images below circulated the web, meaning he'd be 5-years-old in 2020.

Australia's Favorite Rare White Humpback Spotted Off New South Wales Coast

Migaloo, is a completely all-white humpback whale and is said to be the very first completely white humpback whale. Scientists are still unsure if Migaloo is albino or leucistic, which means he is unable to "produce pigment but has colored eyes."

The name Migaloo itself means "whitefella" in a few indigenous languages. 

Migaloo was first spotted in 1991, around Hervey Bay and has been monitored by scientists ever since. Due to Migaloo being too well-known and so rare, special protections have been implemented to ensure nothing happens to Australia's favorite humpback. Whale watchers have to keep at least a five-hundred meter distance or face the penalty. A penalty of a fine up to $16,500.

Yikes. They aren't messing around and honestly, that's a great thing. 

A tweet predicted a Migaloo sighting that he would be by Sydney soon and even possibly reach Cape Byron around Wednesday. 

If you're in Australia, be on the lookout for the rare sighting! Though, Dr. Pirotta, Macquarie University Marine Scientist, says, "Migaloo is one of around 40,000 humpback whales so essentially it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. So when people see or may have seen this individual people get really excited and start to try and predict his movements."

"Migaloo is like the rock star for the ocean world because he's showing that we should care about the ocean. But also remembering that because he's so famous we need to be aware of our actions on the water," Dr. Pirotta added.

Seems like Australia reigns up top when it comes to rare sea life

An adorable and well-spoken parrot named Einstien wants to go into the kitchen to get some food. He also expresses his wants to go and get dressed, and requests a "sweet po," which is an abbreviation he uses for sweet potato. Then you can hear him imitate the sound of water before flying into the kitchen and when landing on the counter he says, "Sorry! Hi sweet, let's go!"

You can follow this beautiful and intelligent parrot on Instagram for more silly antics!

Wow! This is incredible!

This is something we see from parrots all the time, but a raven? We've never seen a talking raven before.... and we're a mix of pure amazement and curiosity. Ravens are famously very smart creatures and this just takes it to another level. 

Just amazing. 

According to the YouTube description, Fable talking isn't something new, "Most evenings, once the yard goes quiet, Fable likes to sit and chat to herself. It's her own quiet time to try out her words, play around with the intonation, and try new sounds out.  I really struggle to film her doing this as I can't leave a camera in the aviary or she will destroy it, and if I make it too obvious she will get suspicious and not chat. So I had a bit of a play with the camera and set it up where I know she prefers to sit, but out of reach! The video is hit and miss as she can go where she likes, but you can hear the audio clear as a bell."

Fable really is adorable, she's talking to herself the way a human child would.

World's Oldest Living Cat Turns 32

We are so happy to wish Rubble, the world's oldest living cat, another happy birthday because he just turned 32! 

Rubble hit the 30 milestone two-years-ago in May 2018. According to his Wikipedia page, as of January 3rd, 2020, Rubble is still around and still holding the title for the world's oldest living cat. 

Due to his old age, Rubble does not need an extravagant celebration anymore, and he especially doesn't want to be surrounded by a lot of people. Too many people and too much noise would stress out any cat, let alone a senior cat. 

Instead, Rubble had his 30th birthday at the vet's office, where he enjoyed some Felix cat food and Whiskas Catmilk and was gifted a free check-up and one-months worth of medications. According to Dr. Shaun Moore, Rubble's veterinarian, Rubble is still in remarkably good health.

So how does Rubble's mother, Michelle Foster, plan on celebrating Rubble's 32nd birthday? The same as last year, in a non-stressful environment.

"He is old now and would not like too much attention or be hassled," Foster said. "We would prefer if he was just left to live out his old age in peace," Foster added.

We can definitely appreciate that! We wish you a peaceful and wonderful birthday, Rubble! Check out some pics of the handsome Rubble below!

While humans are stuck inside, the animals will play! That's right! Animals are reclaiming (or just roaming around freely) the Earth. Thanks to humans being cooped up inside, animals are able to wander more freely and into territories that were more occupied by humans. 

And as it turns out... Earth has been thriving without us!
