Beautiful African Bug Looks Like A Picasso Painting

Okay, hold on a second, before you leave screaming "BUGS!" at us, stop for one moment and look at this one. We know, we know, bugs are kinda eww-y sometimes, but not this one. This one is as beautiful as a painting, specifically, a Picasso painting. 

Meet the Picasso bug, otherwise known as Sphaerocoris annulus. It's a bug that's native to tropical and subtropical Africa, and it is one of the most beautiful bugs we've ever seen. Looking at this little guy brings us to the days of our childhood, when we were in kindergarten, playing around with the prettiest bugs around, no fear to be found in our tiny little palms. And maybe, after seeing this cool creature's pictures, you will feel the same way.

Siberian Cat Enjoying His Roots For First Time In Windy Snow

You know how Siberian cats are some of the most magnificent, floofy cats to ever exist? That's right. Now, what would make such an already majestic cat even more majestic? We didn't know the answer either, we thought Siberian cats have reached peak magnificence, and yet, user CharlotteFTW on imgur has shown us otherwise when posting pictures of their Siberian cat enjoy snow for the first time. 

It's Sir Locksley, also known as The Lox or Locksdown, enjoying his natural habitat, and he has made the very best of it. And so has his owner, of course, by taking pictures capturing his magnificence. So, thank you CharlotteFTW, for taking a majestic floof and making it extra majestic.

Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Aloş, The Gorgeous Turkish Van Cat

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  -- Aloş, the gorgeous, yet derpy cat!

Aloş is a Turkish Van, a breed of domestic cat commonly seen in various cities of modern Turkey.

Fun fact! The Turkish language has letters for "ch" and "sh" - they are "ç" and "ş" respectively. This means Aloş is pronounced "ah-loe-sh!" We were forunate enough to have reached Aloş's owner and got an inside look into Aloş's story as well as his hilarious purrsonality! 

When Aloş's owner first found Aloş, he was found as a stray on the street, said to be very neglected, weak and very, very stubborn. Aloş's owner took him in and has told us that Aloş completely lives by his own rules, stating, "He doesn't listen to me but I love him so much."

Even though Aloş himself is very fond of sleeping, he never lets his owners sleep at night. If Aloş has three characteristics to sum him up, his owner gave the words, "beautiful, angry, and funny."

Aloş is a gorgeous white cat with heterochromia, a groovy mutation that leaves each eye to be a different color. And both of Aloş's colors are quite striking against that gorgeous white fur of his! Get ready to fall in love with Aloş! And be sure to follow him on Instagram for all the adorable, gorgeous and derpy pics of this floof.

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!

Cat Medley: Cuteness Galore, Funnies, Mourning And Loss

Cats. We can't get enough of these beautiful felines, whether they may be physically in our lives or not. We can't help but fall in love with each and every cat we see and/or read about online. We can't help but get personally attached to each one. 

Cats provide us with endless joy and warmth. They make our lives more full, bring us comfort when we need it, bring us laughter when we need it, they are constant entertainment. Oh, not to mention, they're cute 125% of the time and completely irresistible. We could talk about what cats mean to us forever and it'll never do it any justice. 

Cats are a part of our lives, and sometimes that part leaves us and it will always feel like they're leaving us too soon. To all those who recently lost a pet, our hearts are with you. They may be gone but they will never be forgotten.

Mirror Mirror: Cats Truly Are The Fairest of Them All (Comic)

When it comes to gorgeous animals, cats may hold the number one spot. Think about it, not only are all felines absolutely gorgeous, they are elegant and graceful (...most times). As a species, we are madly obsessed with them and literally cannot stop looking at them -- there's a reason why the most popular search on the web is all cat-related. They are truthfully quite perfect. Even cats who aren't "perfect" are also perfect

We believe if you were to look up the word "beautiful" in the dictionary, there should just be an image of a cat and nothing else. And not only do we happen to admire our favorite feline companions, but they obviously love themselves just as much as we love them. And why shouldn't they? Like we said -- they're perfect! 

In collaboration with Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we explore just how much our feline companions admire themselves above all others. 

And if you want more cat enjoyment, be sure to check out last week's installment: Activating The Purr Machine.

Colorful And Mesmerizing Snakes (16 Pics)

We know snakes aren't people's favorite when it comes to animals, and we get it. They can be quite terrifying to encounter in real life. Yet, as terrifying as they are, that does not mean that they're not beautiful. When we think of the terms "dangerously beautiful" we think of snakes... and sometimes spiders. Their scales can be so exotic and breathtaking, with colors you don't see on other animals. These reptiles are mesmerizing. 

So, try to place the initial fear you may be feeling for these reptiles and let them slither into your heart for just a moment.

Dogs And Horses With Similar Coat Patterns

Dogs and horses, we couldn't think of a pair more noble and pure pair than the two. And what's even more precious is often the relationship they hold with one another. Horses and dogs can often be seen playing together and it's honestly one of the cutest moments. What's even cuter than a dog and horse being playful and interested in the other? If those animals shared another similarity...say, their coat patterns

These fellow horses and dogs have similar fur/coats and it's such a beautiful image. They may be different species but they hold a really beautiful similarity that anyone can visibly see.

Magical Photos Of Glow Worms In Pitch-Black Caves

Glow worms in pitch black black caves are one of the most beautiful natural phenomena we've come across. One of the most known places to visit such caves is in New Zealand, and we think that if you have a chance to visit, you absolutely should. These places are nothing short of magical, and we can only imagine the feeling of passing through a cave like that. 

Unlike their name would suggest, glow worms are not actually worms. They're part of the beetles family. But regardless of what exactly they are, their bioluminescence is absolutely stunning, and we hope that looking at their pictures will bring some magic into your day.
