Costumed Cat, Named Dog, Is Vietnam's Master Fish Vendor

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."

The name just stuck! 

What he didn't know at the time, Dog would become one of the coolest and seemingly most chill cats of all time! Le Quoc dresses him up in adorable outfits and Dog doesn't seem to mind it one bit! You can just tell from the images below Dog is full of personality! 

 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.

We've seen a variety of species go on a private tour of aquariums and the moment has finally arrived. A moment we've all been waiting for -- kittens! 

Atlantic Humane Society, who brought their pups to the same aquarium a few weeks ago, decided it was only fair that their kittens got the same experience! 

So while Georgia Aquarium has been closed to the public, these furry felines got the private tour of a lifetime! 

And their reactions? As adorable as could be. Watch the kittens get up close and personal with all the sea life at the Georgia Aquarium. 

Currently, these kittens are not available for adoption, but you can see all of the animals up for adoption at the Atlanta Humane Society during this time at Atlanta Humane Society.

Twitter is Going Crazy Over Thousands Of “Penis Fish” That Have Been Washed Up Ashore in California

Yeah, when the tide comes in is when things tend to get messy...like this post by New York Post who reported the sudden reappearance of the 300-million-year-old species called "pulsing penis fish" on Drakes Beach in California that is currently awash with these funny looking d*ck fish. Rarely has the general population been so interested in news about bays, yet here we are. Twitter is going crazy. 

Parr is a biologist from the Western Section of the Wildlife Society and explained that these worms typically burrow into mud or sand underwater, but a storm likely pushed them ashore, turning it into a nude beach. Parr explains the function of the worm: "When the tide is in, the worm slides up to the chimney of its burrow and exudes a sticky mucous net from a ring of glands. Sometimes you can see these mucous nets, looking like decaying jellyfish, draped around the burrow entrance. The worm continues to secrete as it slips lower into the burrow, generating a slime-net that stretches from the chimney to the worm's mouth. Using contractions (peristalsis) to pump water through its burrow, the worm sucks plankton, bacteria, and other bits into this net. When, like any vacuum, the net gets clogged, the worm slurps it all back into its mouth, taking in the particles it wants to eat and discarding the rest into the tunnel"

Artist Creates Hyperrealistic Paintings Of Fish, Insects, Reptiles And Snails

Meet Young-sung Kim, the extraordinary artist from Seoul, Korea, that is about to take your senses on a magic ride! Kim creates insane hyperrealistic pictures that look way too real for the mind to even comprehend that it's just a painting! 

His paintings, oil on canvas, look more realistic than actual photographs!

The Insider interviewed Kim on his process of what he calls, "an advanced, extreme hyperrealism that precedes any reality — more real than photographs and high-definition monitors." 

He continued describing the process and how planning each new piece involves, "collecting small animals, taking photographs, preparing a canvas, sketching, drawing, and painting with small brushes."

Kim also informed the Insider that he works 12 hours per day on creating these masterpieces.It can take anywhere from 3 to 10 months to complete one painting. 

Since Kim was a small child, he's been "collecting, observing, and studying .. I was amazed at the detail and the subtle colors that I saw in my work, just as I looked through a microscope." 

Why hyperrealism? Kim explains, "I have chosen my genre as hyperrealism because people in today's society think of animals and nature as methods of ornament, experiment, and edibility, My genre may be able to make the people think twice about the unintentionally abusive nature of their behavior towards animals and nature."

"Let's take care of small animals," Kim said. "If they cannot live, humans cannot live either."

We completely agree, Kim! Keep creating and loving life!

The Salmon Cannon: Catapulting Fish and People's Dreams Into The Future

Humans have interrupted a lot of natural processes. Highways divide forests, and dams interrupt the migration routes for fish. But that isn't to say that we haven't found solutions to some of the problems that we created. Wildlife bridges have been built over highways allow animals to cross the highway safely. And in a recent Twitter storm, the public has rediscovered an amazing apparatus that scientists released in 2014 which helps salmon migrate. It is called the Salmon Cannon. And as you can imagine, everyone is obsessed with it.
