A Creative Australian Built a Giant Laughing Kookaburra While In Quarantine

This Australian dad has really topped us all as far as creativity during self-isolation. 

While trying to stay productive, Dr. Farvardin Daliri has built a giant, laughing kookaburra in his own backyard.

The native bird, which measures a whopping 8.5 metres from beak to tail and stands at 4.5 metres tall was built for the Townsville Cultural Festival in Queensland, which he established 26 years ago. 

If you're wondering just how Dr Daliri constructed this incredible structure, he started working on it in February and used hundreds of steel round bars that were then melded and interlocked together, creating the shape of a kookaburra.

He also has a Master of Fine Arts, specializing in ceramics and sculpting, which helped him figure out the technical elements needed to make the sculpture.

He then took it out for a test drive and his daughter shared the video on twitter.

Zookeepers Stories On How Animals React When There Aren't Any Zoo Visitors

The zoo is usually a very lively place, filled with animal sounds along with kids laughs. 

But due to the current worldwide pandemic, many zoos around the world have closed their gates to outside visitors, leaving only the staff to take care of the animals. 

Many people are naturally wondering what happens to these animals these days? Do they become super lonely or maybe they are glad about the break?  

One Reddit user, formulawanker, asked his zookeeper Reddit compatriots what the animals are up to while there are no people around.

The answers were quite interesting.

"Quarantine Cat Film Festival" Aimed At Rescuing Closed Cinema Theaters

In days when the entertainment industry is shut down with a gloomy forecast on how and when we will all be able to go back to cinema theatres, this pawsome initiative could be the light at the end of the tunnel. 

The 'Quarantine Cat Film Festival' will come to virtual theaters in the U.S. and Canada on Friday, June 19, and hopefully will provide the local movie theatres the much-needed revenues during this closure of over two months. 

So where can we buy a ticket?

Undisturbed Sea Turtles Lay 60 Million Eggs

Another uplifting story to come from this lock-down mess. As scary as times might be, there's still some beauty in this world and that beauty comes in the form of mother nature, reclaiming back her world. 

We've seen less air pollution, deers chilling in the streets of Japan, clear waters that brought back the return of certain sea life. And now, with Eastern India under lock-down, sea turtles who are famously vunerable and threatened by humans and our pollution, were left completely undisturbed to lay an estimate of 60 million eggs. 

That means hundreds of thousands olive tortoises reached the shore of Rushikulya beach and comfortably made their nests. 

So next time you're feeling down about the certain situation, remember these tortoises who were able to nest in complete tranquility this year. It might bring some sort of peace.

Busch Encourages People To Foster a Dog By Offering 3 Months Of Free Beer

As more and more people are forced to stay home these days, many are using it as an opportunity to foster a pet to help keep them company during isolation. The people at Busch beer decided to incentivize people even more by offering 3 months of free beer to anyone who fosters a dog during the self-isolation days. 

Their new heartwarming slogan for the campaign is "Social distancing is better with a furry friend by your side and a cold beer in your hand" and to be honest, we can not imagine better isolation conditions. 

From now until April 22, the beer brand will give a free three-month supply of drinks to those who adopt or foster a dog through Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS).  The beer maker will give recipients a $100 gift card, the cash equivalent of two 24-pack cases of Busch, for three months. Busch is also donating $25,000 to MARS to help find animals loving homes across the country.

"During these uncertain and lonelier times, people need an escape: cue the cute puppy memes and photos," said a spokesperson for Busch in a statement. "But as much as we need those cute puppy pics to help get us through social distancing, it's actually them who need us."

Dog Was So Happy His Owner is Home Now That He Sprained His Tail From Too Much Wagging

Rolo is a 7-year-old dachshund from the United Kingdom.

When this good boy realized his owner, Emma Smith, is staying home due to the coronavirus pandemic, he couldn't contain his excitement and started wagging his tail so much that he, unfortunately, sprained it.  

His owner twitted the story which was shared by more than 140,000 times and liked by more than 1 million people, including "The Morning Show" and "Friends" star Jennifer Aniston.

Smith continued on updating about her happy pooch in the following days and even set up Rolo with his own Instagram account — rolo.thehotdog — so that interested pup lovers can "follow my journey getting my wag back."
