Starlings Wearing Their Beautiful Cloaks Of Many Stars (Pictures)

There is nothing more beautiful than nature. Natural beautiful colors, beautiful animals, and one of the animals that is consistently one of the beautiful we see are birds. They really got mother nature's best cards - they can fly anywhere they want, they are free, they have stunning voices, and they have the most beautiful color patterns we've ever seen. Especially, the starling bird. 

One of the most underappreciated birds in our opinion. People seem to have the tendency to think of it as a pest, but if you look for one second, you will see that it is one of nature's most beautiful creations - a bird wearing a cloak of many, many stars.

Polar Bear Cubs Leave Their Den For First Time To Play In Snow

Get ready for some of the most paw-dorable pictures you've ever seen. Brian Matthews captured these amazing, rare and beautiful pictures near Churchill, northern Canada of polar bear cubs leaving their den with their momma for the very first time to play around in the snow. The pictures clearly capture the nerves the cubs feel of leaving their den for the first time, gazing adoringly at their mom and staying close to her while exploring this beautiful new world. 

As The Irish Sun reports, Matthews said: "It was very humbling to be able to see something that very, very few people get to see. The cubs were really interested in the world in general, they were investigating and playing in the snow, smelling trees, looking around and generally getting their bearings."

He continued: "They seemed quite confident running about and playing in the snow, as long as they weren't too far from their mother. You can see in the photos of them all lying together how big these tiny cubs are going to grow up to be. It was just absolutely amazing to see the cubs playing in front of us, only about 50 metres away, and not at all fazed or spooked that we were there. It's heartening to see the positive side of polar bear conservation work."

Only after they calmed down a bit did the mother bear go and have a big ol' nap, her kiddos continuing to play around in the snow next to her. We hope we will get to see many, many more pictures of animals loving their natural habitats, and that this was the pawfect, smile-inducing start to your morning that you were hoping for.

Funny Doggos That Are Horrible At Catching Frisbees

Okay, so, everyone has their little moments of silliness. And there's nothing wrong with that. No one can be totally perfect all the time. Not even dogs. And everyone knows that dogs are some of the most perfect creatures out there. Even they, flawless as they are, sometimes miss catching the frisbee. But at least it results in some insanely hilarious pictures.

So, for anyone having a not so perfect Sunday, here are some not so perfect but still totally perfect doggos who have no idea how to catch frisbees. And it's okay, you may laugh at them – so long as you laugh with fondness. Have a wonderful week, everyone!

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.

Giving Some Love To Awwdorable Endangered Numbats

There are so many amazing animals out there that we don't know about. Rare and special creatures that, as animal lovers, we wish we knew more about. One of them is the Numbat. Numbats are insectivorous marsupials, they're adorable, they're fluffy, they looks almost mythical, and there are only about 1000 of them left in the world. 

They're an endangered animal in need of help, and we think one of the best ways to help them is to spread awareness about them and show people pictures of how incredibly adorable they are. Because no one can withstand their cuteness. Another incredible way to help is to read up about them and consider donating at Project Numbat. But for now, let's take a look at how amazing they are

Informative Tumblr Thread About How Huge Wolves Actually Are

You know how you're in love with dogs? And by extent, any dog-looking this is also something that you want to pet? Yeah, we love wolves too, but... how big and dangerous are wolves actually? Because as far as we see, wolves are super affectionate, and they're the biggest goofballs, and yes, to us, they are basically dogs. 

Well, tumblr is about to give you a reality check by showing you just how big wolves are... But if you're anything like us, them being totally dangerous, enormous, and not always dog-like in behavior is... not going to stop you even slightly from wanting to cuddle them.

Cat Chaos: Pics Of Cats In Places They Definitely Shouldn't Be

Cats are kind of jerks, did you know that? They're also liquid, that you definitely knew. Now, put these two traits together, and you have yourself the one animal that consistently gets itself into places it shouldn't be in. No matter where it is, how hard it was to get in there, if you own a cat or ever have, you know that finding your cat in some insanely random place is an inevitability. And @catshouldnt on twitter definitely knows that too.

You will first, of course, be scared our of your mind, thinking that your feline ran away, and then, when you find it and the feeling of relief that washed over you passes, you will find yourself laughing without pause. Smh, little mischief makers.

Baby Snapping Turtles Look Like Tiny Dinosaurs In Disguise

Turtles and tortoises are some of the coolest animals on the planet in our opinion. They live for so long, they're so resilient despite being so slow, they're chill and - don't forget - they're so adorable. They look like they're little prehistoric dinosaurs left on the earth from some time in the past, strolling around, watching the world evolve all around them. 

All turtles have that feeling to them, but baby snapping turtles really encapsulate that dinosaur image. On top of that, they might be some of the most adorable turtles we've ever seen. And considering how cute we think all turtles are, that's a real achievement lol.

Cats Choosing Pizza As Their Ultimate Love

Whoever said cats can't love has never seen a cat sit on a pizza box. It is so very clear that pizza is their ultimate love. it's warm, it smells delicious, and it's a box - it's the combination of all of our cats dreams. Suddenly, they'll be giving you puppy eyes, trying to convince you to give them a slice of the deliciousness, or they'll be trying to scratch your eyes out because of your futile attempts to get them off their delicious heater

I mean, we can't even question their love for it, considering how much we love pizza too, so... get off, you chaotic little hooligan, this pizza is mine. And thank you to r/CatsOnPizza for providing this delicious and mildly strange cat material.

If I Fits, I sits: The Feline Adventure Continues

It is a known fact that cats are indeed liquid. Their bodies have the ability to contort in such ways that would be shocking to inexperienced cat people. But we - cat owners - we know that the level of liquidity that cats have is about 99%, and these pictures are the newest collection of proof. 

If I fits, I sits - if you are considering getting a cat, learn this statement, for it will lead you through many moments. If you don't see your cat all of a sudden, don't fret right away. Check all the boxes, all the nooks and crannies in the house, don't put it past your liquid furball to hide inside of some bowl somewhere. You will find them in the strangest place. If there's the smallest chance of them fitting into something, they will try to sit in it, and odds are they will succeed.

Ninja Cats Mastering The Art Of The Sneak

Get ready for incoming war flashbacks, all you cat owners in the crowd, because we have all had that moment of suddenly realizing that we haven't seen our cat in a while, going to look for it, then not finding it and losing our heckin' minds. 

Then, it's one of two things: either the cat has been sleeping in the closet this whole time and is perfectly innocent, or - the more likely option - that hooligan has been hiding in his new hiding spot for the past half and hour, absolutely enjoying my stress while I'm shaking his bag of treats, looking for him.

Cats are jerks. That's a known face. We still love them though.
