25 Mildly Interesting And Amusing Animal Stories And Pics

As animal lovers, one of our favorite things in the world is hearing about awesome animal stories. It could be wholesome stories of animals adopting humans or incredible and heroic stories of animals saving humans, like that parrot who saved its owner from a fire. It could be stories of little hard-working doggos being the best employees in the world.

But what about the slightly less grand stories? The short and mildly interesting animal stories are worth hearing about too - the little things can be just as amazing as the grand things, and the subreddit r/mildlyinteresting definitely understands that. So, it's time to appreciate the little things and allow ourselves to be mildly amused by the animal world and its shenanigans.

Spiderwebs: How Unique Are They Really

Is every spider web unique?? Oh, what wonderfully tangled webs they weave.  According to Live Science: "Spiderwebs are astonishingly complex constructions for objects that are so delicate. Even if webs don't literally spell out the words 'terrific' and 'radiant' like those in the book "Charlotte's Web" do, each is nonetheless an intricate engineering marvel. Building these strong yet ephemeral traps is a process that follows patterns shared among spider species. But is there room for individual variation that makes one species' web — or one individual spider's — recognizably different from another's?"

"There are approximately 48,000 known spider species worldwide, and while all spiders have silk-producing organs, known as spinnerets, and can produce several varieties of silk, not all spiders spin webs and lie in wait for their prey. Some spiders actively hunt for food, but they still use silk for making wind-sailing balloons, egg sacs or tiny 'house' to 'hide in." Very interesting! We had no idea that spiders vary so greatly, and even in the ways they approach basic activities such as hunting for food and building their web-y homes.

Sphynx Appreciation Collection: Hairless And Working It

When it comes to unique cat breeds, most people are a little irked by the Sphynx cat. We are totally unsure of why that me be! They may not look like all the other cats, but their uniqueness makes them beautiful in their own way! What they lack in hair they make up for in awwdorablness. These sweet naked creatures also have some of the most expressive faces known to cat-kind. 

Other than their lack of hair, Sphynx cats are basically just like all other cats! They can be weirdos, jerks, sweethearts, and downright mischievous. And I would not let my Sphynx get to close to a cardboard box if I were you, unless you want said cardboard box to become your hairless friend's new hideout!

Optical illusions happen when our eyes try to play tricks on our brain... or is our actually when our brain plays tricks on our eyes? Either way, it always interesting when we have to take a double-take because we think we may have seen something impossible. Could it really be a dog with two heads? Or two identical pups? If you're like me, you'll be pleased by either outcome.

AnimalLogic is back with a new fascinating video about an elusive and rare cat. Their last video about elusive cats was about the Sand Cat, known to be the king of the desert. Today we'll be learning about the Scottish Wildcat, less than 50 in the wild today, this cat is actually the rarest cat in the world. Yup, you heard that correctly. 

Being a cat, the Scottish wildcat is obviously adorable (like all cats of any size), and just like all wildcats, it has a reputation as a ferocious hunter. AnimalLogic mentions at one point in the video that this cat is not one you want to ever encounter... but after seeing just how cute these cats are I think it's safe to say we all wouldn't mind encountering them.

Wholesome Research On Whether Or Not Dogs Know Other Dogs Are Dogs (Twitter Thread)

Dogs are magical creatures sent to us to help guide us and this thing we call life. They are the purest animals with the biggest hearts and we just hope they know how much we adore them. 

All dogs are good dogs. One Twitter user, @DrBenKatz, came across a very important (and very cute) research studies on whether or not dogs can recognize other dogs, merely by sight. After all, there are so many different types of breeds out there, do dogs recognize those dogs to be dogs as well? And the research progress in order to experiment with this question is so heckin' adorable we just don't know what to do with ourselves. If all research could be like this, we might have become scientists ourselves!

Dog people vs cat people. Why can't you be both? We certainly are! And if you love both dogs and cats, you'll be happy to know that there are certain types of cats who actually act just like dogs. From fetching to nature hikes, some cats even like to go swimming! People who love one over the other tend to think they don't have much in common with each other but that simply isn't true. Cats and dogs can be more similar than you realize and this video will show you just how similar they can be!
