Celebrating The Beary Important International Polar Bear Day

February is coming to an end, and it's time to celebrate one of our favorite days ever - international polar bear day. Why do we love it so much? Well, because we love polar bears, of course. They are so cute, so fluffy, they are a vulnerable animal species whose population is decreasing, and polar bear day is the best day to bring some awareness to the struggles facing this animal. As well as look at super adorable pics of them

If any of you love polar bears as much as we do and want to help with the conservation effort of these huge teddy bears, consider going to Polar Bears International and learning about them as well as donating to help keep them safe and happy. Have a beary happy polar bear day, everyone!

Superb Owls In Celebration Of Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl who??? We only know superb owls here. 

'Superb owl' is not a typo, no, no, it is a choice. It is the only correct way of spelling the name of this day. It is the perfect day for anyone who is not actually a fan of the game to celebrate the most majestic and coolest owls out there. And the owls you're about to see really are a hoot and a half. 

Honestly, superb owls are the only reason we even want to celebrate this day at all. Well, owls and the food, but that's besides the point. Enjoy Superb Owl Sunday, everyone, in the only right way.

Recapping 2020 With The 50 Best Cat Memes

2020 is almost over, guys! And the only way 2021 can go is up. That doesn't mean that eeeeeverything about 2020 was bad. Some things were quite good actually. With people spending so much time at home, we had animals taking the opportunity and running outside on the streets, taking back over nature, and we had super bored people at home making memes, memes, and more memes

So... everyone won. Kind of. 

Regardless! We have to look at the positives of this year wherever we find them, and this cat meme list is the culmination of the too much time people had at home. From quarantine memes to your classic cat shenanigan memes, here are the 50 best cat memes of 2020!

a collection of the 50 best cat memes of 2020 thumbnail includes two pictures including a cat walking with a small cart 'Infrastructure - Government : "Only the head of the family gets to go out and buy groceries" Our head of the family : Eggs, rice and 721 packets of whiskas. Got it.' and another of three cats huddled together 'Small to medium-sized cats - Day 2 of Quarantine: The cats are plotting to kill me...'

Celebrating The 120th Birthday Of The Oldest Known Nile Crocodile

Happy 120th  birthday to the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity - Henry! 

It truly is a rarity for these gorgeous crocodiles to get to 120 years of age, so, to celebrate, the Crocworld Conservation Centre on the KZN South Coast threw Henry the Nile crocodile a birthday party! Henry and the staff celebrated his birthday together, with the staff eating birthday cake, and Henry getting his favorite of all meaty snack. 

The crocodile arrived at the Crocworld Conservation Centre in 1985 when he was at the young age of 85. Today, he is five meters long, 700 kilograms in weight, and he is the father of over 10,000 offspring with his six female cohabitants. So, one can easily say that getting older has definitely not slowed Henry down even one bit.

Being the oldest known Nile crocodile in captivity, Henry has got many, many more years of leisure, relaxations (and a good time with the ladies) in his wonderful sanctuary. On top of all of his other very impressive achievements, he has also been listed at the second oldest crocodile in the world, with the number 1 spot having been taken by Mr. Freshie who was 140 years when he passed in 140. 

We wish Henry many more birthdays in the future, and may he break Mr. Freshie's record and live long beyond that as well.

It's monkey day, and that means it's time to celebrate all of these little chimpions! They're cute, they're fluffy, and they're incredibly human-like sometimes. We love them just as much as we love all animals, and since today is their day, we're dedicating for them a collection of the most adorable monkey pictures we could find. 

Monkeys come in all shapes and sizes, that's true, from tiny finger-sized monkeys to large monkeys that might even reach your height, but these monkeys are mostly small and rare. And extra adorable. You might even be surprised by how cute they are and by how much you would want to own one. 

So, enjoy monkey day, dear animal lovers, and may the chimps fall in your favor!

Celebrating National 'Hug A Bear Day' With Adorable Bear Cub Pics

It's National Hug A Bear Day! And we here at Cheezburger are celebrating! Now, it's important to remember that you should actually go out and hug a bear. That is a bit dangerous at the end of the day, no matter how cute and cuddly bears may appear. 

No, National Hug A Bear Day is actually a day that refers to teddy bears and is meant to celebrate hugging! Yeah, you heard right. On this day, you aren't supposed to go out and hug actual bears. The way to celebrate National Hug A Bear day is by hugging your teddy bear, or by hugging your friend's teddy bear, or giving a big ol' 'bear hug' to one of your friends or family members. 

That doesn't mean that actual bears shouldn't be celebrated, of course, since bears are unbearably awesome. So, since we can't come give y'all bear hugs right now, as a compromise, we've decided to give you an adorable collection of some of the most teddy bear-like looking bear cubs instead.

Heroes Of The Month: Celebrating Rescued Animals And Their Rescuers (October 2020)

Every single month, animals find themselves in precarious situations for various different reasons. And every single month, the lucky ones get saved by some incredible people. We attempt to bring you as many of these stories as possible as they come out, but there are just too many of them. When you think about it, that's really amazing, having too many happy rescue stories to cover.

But since we can't cover all of them throughout the month, we've decided to collect some of these stories for you at the end of each month in a list right here to celebrate these incredible people who put their love and effort into saving animals and the animals that they celebrated. Even so, we will never be able to cover them all, but this is a start, and the people in this list are definitely deserving of more appreciation. 

So, let's say thank you together and hope that next month, there will again be too many rescue stories to cover!
