Baby chimps and puppies… need we say more?!

Jenny and Jim Desmond are parents to an unusual and very large family – over 20 orphaned baby chimpanzees.

But before the babies can move out, they need to learn how to live like wild chimps. They need to attend a baby chimp school. And what's better than some puppies as playmates?

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Mr Bagel The Chinchilla

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Mr. Bagel the Chinchilla!

Mr. Bagel might be the cutest chinchilla on Instagram! And that's not solely based on his looks -- it's based on the fact that his owner takes photos of Mr. Bagel, often holding miniature props, that granted him the cutest chinchilla on Instagram!  

Mr. Bagel is an advocate against animal testing and the fur industry. He's even partnered up with The Body Shop, in a campaign to ban animal testing globally by 2020 called, "Forever Against Animal Testing."

You rock, Mr. Bagel!

Meet the ever-handsome orange tabby named Thor! 

Thor was born feral, and is completely blind. According to TinyKittens HQ, it's a miracle he managed to live on his own, out in the streets, for the first year of his life. 

Thankfully, Thor is now in some loving hands, and as TinyKittens HQ writes in their description, "we promise he will know nothing but love, comfort and a full belly from now on."

Thor has already gained 6 pounds, in their care, and even has a playmate named Nyla! 

"His fear instinct is quite ingrained, so it might take some time for us to help him build enough confidence with humans that he doesn't try to run and hide.  Once we have him in our laps, he is just loving being hand fed and having his ears and chin rubbed.   

Nyla is keeping Thor company until she gets her spay and eye surgery tomorrow.  She has one purrfect eye, and is very fearful in captivity, so we are hoping she will be able to return to her friends and family in our Happy Forest managed feral colony once she's fully recovered.  As with all of our ferals, we will bring her back in if she needs further medical care or if she changes her mind about life with humans."

A huge shout out and thank you to TinyKittens HQ for all their incredible and loving work they provide!

Woman And Orangutan Share Beautiful Moment Together As She Breastfeeds

Gemma Copeland was left in tears after visiting Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria. 

While in the orangutan enclosure, Copeland realized her son, 15-month-old Jasper, was hungry. She sat down against the glass to breastfeed him when a female orangutan, named Sol, who had been watching Copeland intently, comes to sit beside her.. as if protecting her as she breastfeeds. 

Sadly, Sol had previously given birth to a stillborn infant. 

Copeland was moved to tears by the gesture, writing, "She looked directly into my eyes then placed her hand up as if to touch my son. I was in awe of this beautiful creature already. My son wanted feeding and as it was quiet I fed him whilst I sat there. The way the orangutan reacted took my breath away she kept looking at me, then my son then back again.

She sat with me for approximately half an hour, and kept stroking the glass and lay down next to me as if to support and protect me. I was absolutely gobsmacked and got quite a crowd of people turning up to see what was going on – people were sat watching quietly and respectfully. It was really lovely and I didn't want to leave – it felt incredible and I was crying so much because I couldn't take it in.

I had to share this because my mind was blown, we may be a species apart but breastfeeding connected us today in a once in a lifetime moment that will stay with me forever."

Sol undoubtably had a strong connection to this mother and her child. Orangutans are such gentle and loving souls, Sol is an example of that love.

Much needed heavy rains have finally come to put out the horrific Australia bushfires. However, as anyone who lives in an area that's often dealing with intense fires, once the rain comes -- it comes hard. Due to the fires burning away so much, there is nothing in the rains path to help block it from forming mudslides and flooding like no other. 

As a result, this rainfall has created flooding so bad, the Australian Reptile Park claims they haven't seen such a thing in over 15 years. And due to the waters reaching high level, Australia has essentially become a Disneyland playground for alligators. Australian Reptile Park have stationed keepers at their Alligator Lagoon to monitor the water levels, which were rising beyond the fence line. 

Here is some footage they captured out around the park.

Cartoon-Eyed Husky Finds Forever Home

Meet Jubilee, the husky who was rejected by breeders because she looked "weird," according to the rescue organization Husky House

Jubilee is a Siberian husky with a unique and unforgettable bug-eyed stare -- which has since made her viral! Reddit user, u/critterwalk, share Jubilee's picture with the Reddit community, with the title, "This is Jubilee. She just happens to look like bad taxidermy."

Thanks to her cartoon-ish eyes, Jubilee was made into an internet star overnight! 

Before her stardom, it was difficult to find someone to take Jubilee home with them, her caretakers at Husky House wrote in a Facebook post in her voice:

"Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them,I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog."

If that doesn't hit you right in the feels, you might want to go to a doctor to make sure you're human. 

Thanks to Jubilee's sudden stardom, her adorable face was being shared countless times and finally landed her a forever home!

Meet adventure cat, Nala, and her loving human, Dean! Deanfirst came across Nala on the side of the road while biking his way through Bosnia. Nala began to chase after Dean, and Dean obviously wasn't going to bring her along -- he was biking across the world, for goodness sake! But Nala wouldn't take no for an answer. She won't stop following Dean, and Dean decided he had to take her along on his journey.

So, Dean cleared up some space on his bike and made a little area for her to sit comfortably, as he pedaled. When they rode off, Nala decided she wanted to be closer to her chosen human and climbed onto his shoulders. Soon enough, they became inseparable travel buddies.

And now, Dean has a new bike set-up for his little furbaby -- a new and improved basket! 

"Got the basket on the bike, put Nala in and went out to test it out! so far so good, just need to see what its like in the rain!!"
