Tumblr Thread: The Gentle Giants Of The Horse World

If there is one animal that we believe does not get enough love, it's horses. Yeah, everyone knows what horses are, but does everyone know that horses are majestic galloping creatures of beauty? Do they know that horses get spooked by affectionate goats with pool noodles on their horns? Do people really know anything about horses other than people sit on them? We don't think so, so we think that it's time to learn.

We shall start with the most majestic galloping enormous horses of them all: draft horses. They are huge and gorgeous, they are the gentle giants of the horse world, and they are truly whinnying at life. And now, they're about to get the appreciation that they deserve.

The tallest horse in the world is an American-type Belgian horse named Big Jake (I think???).'

Beautifully Long Necked Giraffes And Scientific Facts

Did you know that giraffes are the world's tallest mammals? Thanks to their towering legs and extremely long necks, they are able to take the title of 'earth's tallest mammals' with pride. A Giraffe's legs alone are generally longer than the total height of the average human, at around 6 feet tall! Their long legs allow them to reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour! Can you imagine watching a Giraffe run at the speed of a car? We think that would be quite the sight.

Giraffes are truly amazing creatures with many unique characteristics. They are able to use their height to graze on leaves and buds on treetops that few other animals are able to reach. Generally, Giraffes roam in open grasslands in groups of 6-12 or so. Another fun fact about Giraffes- they are absolutely awwdorable!

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.
