Oscar Worthy Overly Dramatic Animals Playing Dead

Training animals can be one of the most fun things, and we've all seen clips of puppies playing dead with their tails wagging of joy like crazy. But apparently, not only doggos are Oscar worthy drama film actors. We can imagine what's going through some of these animals heads when they do this. 

The cats are probably like: "oh, wow, the human is actively encouraging naps, I can do that." And the dogs are probably thinking: "omg, I can lie down, I'm good, I'm very good, please, I'm so good, look how I lie down all dramatically," like they do about all tricks. But... what do hamsters think when they're giving the performances of their lifetime? And the dolphin? 

But no, the Oscar definitely goes to the otter. Treats for everyone though! They're all incredible actors.

This insanely adorable video of pandas playing and rolling around with balls brings up one of life's most important questions - what's rounder, a ball or a rolled up panda? 

Having watched this video in its entirety multiple times, we can say with absolute certainty that... we have no idea. Sometimes, you look at the frames in this video and think to yourself: "where is the panda, I only see the balls." But alas, the panda is there. It's just rounder than you could ever expect.

Then again, maybe you would expect such confusion when it comes to pandas, since it is a known fact that pandas are basically always a mess. We love them for that exact reason though. Who doesn't love watching a panda stumble around in all its glorious cuteness?

This is just too cute for words! Turns out, bear cubs play just the same as human kids! They'll climb, rolls around, jump, explore their surroundings, and just enjoy each other's company! 

The video itself is 8 years old, and the camera work is definitely shaky, but the content is simply too good and too cute to forget about. A mean... a playground full of adorable bear cubs? Sign us up!

So precious! Just a handful of kittens playing in a Barbie Van -- what could be better? 

The best kind of carjacking would involve your car being taken over by kittens. The video posted on Reddit by user, throwaway4974694, says "I watch this video every so often when I need a smile and laugh."

Well, thank you for sharing this joy with the rest of us!

Here are 2 minutes of pure magic and love. 35-year-old Motuba, a gorilla at the Philadelphia Zoo, is seen here wrestling with his two-year-old son, Ajabu. 

Did you know what when a gorilla has its mouth open and shows only the lower teeth, it's in a playful mood and inviting to play? Pretty interesting! 

In the video, both father and son are in "play" mode, as they have their mouths opened slightly to indicate so. However, even more so, you can just see the pure love in Motuba's eyes as he watches over his son. 

We're feeling the love from this amazing dad, how about you?

Whoever said ball pits are just for kids and dogs? Cats can enjoy ball pits too! 

You may not expect it but if you think about, why wouldn't cats enjoy a cage filled with toys? It's a dream come true to any living creature! 

Thank you, walter santi, for this lovely video of cats frolicking through a huge ball pit filled with 500 multi-colored balls, it's been a blast to watch!

Vids Of Corvids Playing And Enjoying Life

Vids of corVIDS. Do you get it? 

Well, even if you hated that, we found it to be quite clever. 

Corvids belong to the same family of birds such as ravens, crows, jackdaws, magpies, etc. However, in common English, these birds would be known as part of the crow family, the technically correct term for them are corvids. 

Knowing that corvids are part of the crow family and seeing videos of them playing below, it makes sense because these bird species are known to be quite clever

What we didn't previously know, is that these birds could have so much fun. We like to think that if we were to turn into a bird for one day, we would go around riding windshield wipers, too.

It's a common question that some of us don't actually know the answer to. 

"Is my cat playing or fighting?" It's hard to say when it comes to animals, they do tend to play a bit rougher than what we would consider "playing". However, even with all that rough playing -- are they actually fighting?

Jackson Galaxy explains the difference. "In this episode,  Joanna asks me to look at a video clip of her two cats Pudim & Olivia to determine if her cats are having a good time or if she's got a big problem on her hands. I break down this video into body language, timing, and territory to give her (and you) the answers as to what's going on and how to move forward!"

Find out the truth!

Meet adoptive siblings -- Uni and Nami! 

According to Catz Club, while all cats love mice, Uni has a bit of different interests... Uni absolutely adores the PC mouse. 

"[Uni] wanted to play with the mouse but Nami was a bit jealous so she interrupted to convince Uni to play with her instead of the mouse. After they were tired they both passed out. Uni fell asleep cuddling the mouse."

Guess we know who the winner of Uni's heart is!

Meet the ever-handsome orange tabby named Thor! 

Thor was born feral, and is completely blind. According to TinyKittens HQ, it's a miracle he managed to live on his own, out in the streets, for the first year of his life. 

Thankfully, Thor is now in some loving hands, and as TinyKittens HQ writes in their description, "we promise he will know nothing but love, comfort and a full belly from now on."

Thor has already gained 6 pounds, in their care, and even has a playmate named Nyla! 

"His fear instinct is quite ingrained, so it might take some time for us to help him build enough confidence with humans that he doesn't try to run and hide.  Once we have him in our laps, he is just loving being hand fed and having his ears and chin rubbed.   

Nyla is keeping Thor company until she gets her spay and eye surgery tomorrow.  She has one purrfect eye, and is very fearful in captivity, so we are hoping she will be able to return to her friends and family in our Happy Forest managed feral colony once she's fully recovered.  As with all of our ferals, we will bring her back in if she needs further medical care or if she changes her mind about life with humans."

A huge shout out and thank you to TinyKittens HQ for all their incredible and loving work they provide!

This Dolphin Turned a Jellyfish Into a Beanbag

These gents were enjoying a nice day on the water when they saw a sight that they and most everyone will never see again. A dolphin entered the bay near these Danish sailors, and they watched and followed as it literally threw and caught the jellyfish in the air. At one point it even lost the living beanbag, but soon found it and continued on with its game. Pretty sure PETA will file a complaint against the dolphin for animal cruelty, but it's unlikely to get very far between the judge's guffaws.

Check out the full story of this juggling dolphin, and find out exactly the Danes had to say about the whole experience.

These Two Bad To The Bone Pups Called 911 A Total Of 16 Times (6 Pictures And A Video)

In a span of 30 minutes, sixteen calls were made to 911, all from the same phone number. Dispatch couldn't hear a person speaking on the other line and rushed over thinking there was an emergency. To their surprise, when arriving at the caller's home, no one was home. Officer Michelle Roberts reached out to the homeowners so they were able to get inside. What did they find when entering the home? Two dogs by their owner's phone upstairs in the office. The phone's screen was set to 'emergency calls only', the dogs accidentally kept calling 911 while they were playing with the phone. It was a lesson learned for the dad and a hilarious story that the police officers will never get tired of telling people.
