Tumblr Thread: Informative Facts About How Cool Crows Are

It's amazing how many things we don't know about the animal kingdom. No matter how many cool and weird animal factsyour read and how many lists about underrated and unknown animals you look at, there will always be something new to learn. Did you know, for example, that crows are insanely smart animals? Well, you're about to learn some crow facts from this tumblr thread. 

Every time we see anything about crows, we are amazed by how cool they are. Birds, in general, are surprisingly amazing. Parrots speak in hilarious accents, pigeons put themselves to sleep, peacocks can be the biggest jerks in the world. Ugh, animals are so cool. The more we learn about the animal kingdom, the more we fall in love.

Crows understand the concept of gifts. There's a little girl who started feeding the murder by her house and they started bringing her trinkets (cool pebbles, coins, shiny things, bleached animal bones, etc) as a thank you.'

Tumblr Thread: Infiltration Of The Tiniest Most Dramatic Opossum

Sometimes, very strange things happen when the animal world and humans mix together - the kind of stories that you'd think would only happen in the kind of cartoons where calking off a cliff means staying afloat for multiple seconds before falling. But no, these stories are real. 

A tiny owl being found inside of the iconic Rockefeller Christmas tree? A person accidentally forgetting that their sugar glider is in their bra and going to a doctor's appointment, praying that the sugar glider doesn't wake up? A person getting chased by a cow on Valentines day? All real. All crazy. All hilarious. 

And this time, in this ridiculous tumblr thread, our story is about a tiny opossum infiltrating a cat carrier and dramatically screeching when it got caught. Yes, sounds insane, we know. And it's so heckin' funny. 

tumblr thread about an opossum that infiltrated a cat carrier 'Font - talesfromtreatment Follow Foiled! Today I got to go on one of our runs to more rural shelters to help relieve overcrowding there. We ended up bringing back 21 kittens and 10 dogs. So fun day. But this morning, while I was getting stuff together in preparation for the 90 minute drive.. This happened.'

Tumblr Posts: How Shark And Dolphin Stereotypes Are So Wrong

It is not only humans who have to deal with stereotypes. Animals have to deal with them too. For example, cats have to deal with the stereotype of being cold-hearted jerks, and while cats are indeed jerks, cats are also super affectionate to their humans. Birds have to deal with the stereotype that they are not loving, when birds are actually supper playful. And crocodiles, though terrifying, are also actually hilariously adorable underwater

And now, we're about to defend sharks and make fun of some dolphins, tumblrstyle. Because for some reason, even though dolphins are super smart and could totally be jerks if they wanted to, they're the cute ones, while the hungry sharks who just see you as food if you're in their food bowl get all the bad rep. Pssh. We're not okay with that.

tumblr posts about the stereotypes surrounding dolphins and sharks | thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - O pizzaback-deactivated20201011 I hate how the stereotype is that dolphins are good and sharks are evil, when dolphins are so smart that they have the capacity for evil but sharks are simple fish who can only be true neutral, so even if a minority of dolphins are evil there are still more evil dolphins than sharks rageclit quality marine philosophy discourse'

Tumblr Thread: Crocodile Dads Are The Best

We could never imagine that we'd ever say "awwww" about a crocodile. They are so scary, and omg, if we ever met one in real life, we would run away shaking. But, time and time again, the internet manages to convince us that these terrifying animals are not that bad. From the time that we all celebrated the 120th birthday of the oldest known Nile crocodile, to the time that we all giggled and laughed and felt embarrassed about the hilarious way that crocodiles actually look like underwater, to the time that we fell in love with crocodile skinks because they look like tiny dragons

And now, through this tumblr thread, we learn that crocodile dads are super protective of their little babies and carry them around on their backs - in groups of hundreds. It's adorable. Crocodiles are adorable. Shocking, right?

tumblr thread about crocodile dads carrying their babies | thumbnail includes a picture of a crocodile carrying many crocodile babies and a section of a tumblr post 'Water - kaijutegu Follow Everyone in the notes is saying mama, but that's dad. See the lump on his nose? Only males have those. It's actually where they got their name; the lumps tend to resemble earthenware cooking pots called ghara. What we're seeing here is a really good dad. This is par for the course for gharials, though-'

Tumblr Thread: African Grey Parrots Are The Smartest Jerks

Whenever we hear about the shenanigans that people have with their pet birds, as people who've never had birds for pets, we always have a bit of a hard time understanding. It seems… almost impossible for these birds to have so much personality, let alone for them to be jerks. And yet… we've heard of a parrot purposefully messing with a dog, we've heard of parrots behaving like absolute jerks. We've even heard of a peacock acting like a jerk

But now, we think we've come across the ultimate species of bird jerks - the African grey parrot. We came across tumblr thread with stories that are so hilariously insane about them, we simply had to share it with all of you guys. Don't forget though, after reading all of these jerk-bird stories, that birds can be totally adorable too

Tumblr Thread: Dog Too Shy To Be Service Dog Becomes The Best Rescue

Dogs with jobs are so amazing. One of the most amazing jobs that dogs have though in our opinion are helping other humans. Service dogs are so important, and they always do such important jobs. And while every dog who becomes a service dog is so, so important, not every single dog can become a service dog. Some of them are simply too good and gentle for that job.

That is the story of this gorgeous black Labrador pupper. The little guy was just a tiny bit too shy to become a service dog, so he ended up being a rescue. He still stayed the very best boy though, and the things he was taught in service dog school have definitely come in handy for him protecting his human.

Tumblr Thread: Mourning Dog Befriends Duck And Gets Happy Again

Losing someone is always hard - for all of us. Apparently, that is true for animals as well. And it was especially true for George the dog. He had lost his very best doggo friend and has been heartbroken for 2 years since his passing, acting depressed and tired, not smiling nearly as much as he used to

But then one day, something amazing happened. Out of nowhere, a duck waddled into George's life and absolutely insisted on the two of them becoming best friends. And lo and behold, a heartwarming interspecies friendship developed. Soon, George began smiling again, and seeing him happy made us smile just as much.

Having come across a freezing human baby, Masha took it upon herself to save the baby. she curled up around it, kept it warm through the night, and in the morning, she strolled around and screamed until someone followed her and found the baby. She even managed to get herself into the ambulance with the baby afterward. Had it not been for her, the baby would have died.

Tumblr Thread: The Dachshund Family Curse

There is... something about dachshunds that is different than other dogs... Even though they're so little, they are just... so dang intimidating. We can't help it, when we walk past them on the streets, we always have to take a moment and move away - can't risk the wrath of a dachshund. 

But, unfortunately for this tumblr user, it's family must have wronged a dachshund at some point in their lives, because now they are cursed. The father has been bitten and left scarred, the girl is being followed by a dachshund in school. This curse is real, and it is terrifying. ...It's also kind of hilarious though.

Tumblr Thread: Cat That Adores Cuddles

We don't know if you've heard, but there is this rumor about cats not liking cuddles and not being affectionate. We know, how ridiculous is that. Clearly, anyone who knows anything at all about cats knows that if you have earned their love and affection, they will give it back to you tenfold and more. 


Cats are so affectionate. You just have to allow them to be affectionate with you on their own terms. It may take some time for it to happen, but eventually, if you are nice and respectful enough, it will. And maybe your cat will end up as cuddly and loving as this one.

Tumblr Thread: Cats' Adorable Reactions To Meeting Baby Human

One can never help but worry what their pet's reaction is going to be when bringing an itty bitty newborn human home. We want them to be best friends, we want them to love each other, but for the pet, this milk-smelling mini human is even stranger than us large humans. And the whole thing is even more worrisome for someone who has more than one pet.

For Tumblr user dedalvs, for a moment, it looked like the worst was going to happen. After one of her cats very curiously came up to her baby and sniffed it, the baby started wailing, and the cat was petrified. Thankfully, his sibling cat was there to put him in his place.

Tumblr Thread: Psychic Cat Always Knows When Human Gets Ice Cream

All cats eventually learn what some things mean. Some are smarter than others, of course, and will understand more than most. But most of them will know when you're getting up to get them food, they'll understand the sound of a wet food can opening... they'll learn. Some of them though, shock us with their abilities, and the cat of glumshoe on tumblr, did exactly that.

It seems that this little semi omnicient god-tier goblin knows exactly when her human is about to get ice cream. It's only like that with ice cream. And it seems that all it takes are some "ice cream thoughts" from her human for her to come running. 

tumblr thread about a cat who always knows when her human is going to get ice cream thumbnail includes one tumblr post 'Font - glumshoe Follow My cat has ice cream prescience. I don't know how she does it. I don't know how she reads my intent so clearly. When I walk to the kitchen to get a popsicle or thaw a slice of banana bread or warm up some mango slices, she doesn't care. She stays on her chair and waits patiently. But when I walk to the kitchen to scoop myself a bowl of ice cream'
